It’s been a big week for Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California. After her questioning of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin during last Thursday’s House Financial Services Committee hearing resulted in what she suspected were evasive maneuvers from Mnuchin, Waters promptly took back the mic, and exploded the internet.
This is not new territory for Waters, who for nearly three decades has represented what’s now California’s 43rd District – A.K.A. Home of Rum & Biscuits A.K.A. Playa Vistrict A.K.A. The Forty Three Authority. Known throughout her illustrious career for never backing down from a challenge, Waters can count among her achievements everything from leading divestment in apartheid South Africa to prohibiting police strip searches.
The Twitterverse aint nothing to a boss. Much less a congressional hearing.
Which is why we’d like to honor our hometown hero and general dismisser of all things whack with a custom cocktail: The Reclaiming My Thyme. Strong and fabulous, with plenty of California Love.
The Reclaiming My Thyme Recipe
- 5 sprigs thyme
- 1 1/2 oz (roughly 2 tbsp) sugar
- 1 squeeze of lemon
- 3 oz silver tequila
- 3 oz Summer Water rosé
- 3 oz ginger beer
1. In a shaker, combine 2 thyme sprigs, sugar, and lemon and muddle well.
2. Add tequila and rosé to shaker. Shake contents vigorously.
3. Pour over fine strainer with ginger beer and ice in a highball glass. Garnish with remaining thyme sprigs.
Et voila, The Reclaim My Thyme! A cocktail we hope you can vote for 14 times.
