The Jim Tressel Cocktail:

2 oz Dry Gin
1 oz lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
SHAKE with ice
...POUR all into a glass
Add Grenedine (sinks to bottom)
Fill with Club Soda
Add one marachino cherry.


Doesn't quite come across in the picture here, but the drink looks scarlet on bottom, gray on top, it's delicious, mix it with your finger if you like.  I made it for some friends and it was a BIG hit.  If you don't like gin (like my wife), the vodka version works just as well!  Haven't tried it with white rum, but hell, give it a go!
(Aka. New York Style Tom Collins, something a guy in a sweater vest might order...but who gives a shit 45-7!)

Also for those looking synchronize their drinking and football, if memory serves a martini with black olives is a Buckeye martini.

Yeah, this was my 3rd one tonight, so i may have spilled too much grenadine into it.  A pinch less grenadine and it'll look perfect!

sounds nasty bro.  thats probably becasue I hate gin though.

Blaze, gin puts hair on your chest, so man up.  Just kidding...seriously, though, you don't really taste the gin.

Love the Makers, but learned the hard way that drinking the brown stuff for 3 hours turns me into a complete f-tard...the wife no likey.

To be a true Jim Tressel Cocktail, I think you need to add 2 teaspoons of "and so forth" but it sure does look tasty.
