Drinks that are to die for

SPOW president Maureen O'Donnell procured the recipe for the "To Die For" cocktail that Billy Sunday served to the Society Of Professional Obituary Writers during this year's ObitCon:

(Serving size is one cocktail)

2 oz. white rum
1 oz. strawberry syrup (fresh puréed strawberries- 1/1 ratio of strawberry and simple syrup)
3/4 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. Fernet-Branca

Shake and top with sparkling soda if you want it carbonated.

And if you're looking for a drink that could wake the dead, check out the Obituary Cocktail.

"I read obituaries every day to learn what sorts of lives are available to us, to see an entire life compressed into a few column inches, to fit the whole story in my eye at once." --Sarah Mangus
