    The W.Y. Sour

    NEIGHBOR'S WARMTH
    An Annual Event
    a very unique kick
    WALLPAPER: LOCAL MIX
    -------
    .. We have a large contingent of Russian workers in our village. Many enjoy our local fly fishing opportunities.
    .. Some have become U.S. citizens, some are ex-patriots, some are established here on long term work visas.
    .. Each year, around the entrance of the New Year, a fresh supply of genuine Russian vodka arrives. It is combined with a couple of strictly local spirits into a festive cocktail. It's similar to traditional "sour" cocktails - but has a kick all of it's own.
    .. It is excellent in a flask for the cold weather midge fishing that is enjoyed by the most hearty of neighbors.
     -----
