In honor of this pointless holiday, we’re taking a moment to reflect on one of the great movies Bill Murray has brought us. The infamous film he made in 1993, Groundhog Day, directed by Harold Ramis, follows Bill Murray’s character (who is aptly named Phil) as he lives the same day over and over again. According to Ramis, Murray lives through this torture for 10 whole years. Over this time, he obviously gets more and more frustrated, resulting in quite a lot of risk-taking. However, one of the more tame activities he partakes in is having a drink with his coworker/love interest. So, as we dwell in the fate that Punxsutawney Phil has bestowed upon us, we’ll be sipping on Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks with a Twist.
The Groundhog Day Vermouth Cocktail
Pour sweet vermouth over ice into a Double Old-Fashion cocktail glass. Stir and twist lemon peel over the glass. Thank the dear lord that every day is a new one.
