Italian Gentleman Cocktail. Listening To Sydney Wayser.

Italian Gentleman

Probably not Italian. But pretty freakin’ scary.

The Italian Gentleman Cocktail, on the other hand, is not one bit scary. Not sure what the origin of the name is, but I do know that this slightly bitter whiskey drink is worthy of any gentle man or woman.

Is Ethan Hawke Italian? A Gentleman?

Don’t know.

I do know that This One Goes Out To Ethan Hawke. I’d bet he would like to listen to this folksy, sweet song while sipping a cool beverage.

Check out Sydney Wayser on her Website where you can buy the music.
