An utterly addictive cocktail.

The marmot wakes up from a deep winter sleep on the 5th of March 2013

And finds a balmy 14°C outside of his den.

Murmurs solemnly.

Returns to rummage in his den.

Out come Adirondack, Ray Ban, and cocktail shaker and lowball glass.

The scene is set.

Bring on The Marmot.
