The instructions for the 2022 MassRecycle Conference Cocktail.
The “Dumpster Fire” By Mike Cicale, Town of Wellfleet
1 oz of your finest Fireball Whiskey (Buy the pint as I think its recyclable)
2 oz of Florida orange juice
1/2 oz of Massachusetts maple syrup
1 Maraschino cherry and a dash of the syrup
Stir and enjoy!
Recovery Tea By Rob Gogan
In a zero-waste tea infuser, combine 1/2 teaspoon of each of these herbs and place in nearly-boiled water. Makes a good fossil-fuel-free sun tea also! Be sure to compost spent herbs after brewing.
Peppermint: relaxing and helps digestion
Lemon balm: calms nerves
Chamomile: soothing and restful
