A Bittersweet Valentine's Tale

My insightful publisher sent me this nice pint glass for Valentine's Day. (There was some candy involved, but it disappeared before photo time.)

Dr. Gina knew that Tom and I weren't feeling swell, so she brought the most incredible thing over. Fresh ginger juice––honestly, a whole jar of it that she had made with her juicer––and a jar of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Instead of pouring beer into the pint glass, I made what I call a Dr. Gina:

I filled the glass with ice and fizzy water. I added a spoon of ginger juice and a spoon of lemon juice. Gina had also brought over a grapefruit and some oranges, so I added juice from those, along with three splashes of vodka. Today I was completely well.
