Ramps in a Cocktail

Who puts ramps in a cocktail? Leah does. What else are you going to do with them? Well, yes, you can pickle some. She did that, too. Since she can't cook with them at home due to my stupidly useless onion allergy, ramp cocktails is a creative solution to five pounds of wild ramps sitting in the fridge.
What are ramps? A North American wild onion-like thing that one finds by foraging like a hippie on the forest floor in mid-Spring.

Try ramp-infused vodka in a bloody mary - minus horseradish which will over power it. I will post a recipe next week.

BEWARE: ramps will give you dragon breath. Unless your lover eats (drinks) them, too, be prepared to sleep alone tonight.
