The Ms. Merry Story
One olive or two,
and a “How do you do?”
Everyone who has met her concurs,
she creates a stir,
and makes all engines purr.
The perfect complement to all hors d’oeuvres,
or whatever is being served,
this cocktail is not reserved,
to be a companion to dinner or small bites,
she is often served solo but never with ice.
Many enjoy her shaken, not stirred,
but dirty or however you choose,
you will not lose,
after your first pour,
you will be clamoring for more.
She is sometimes a day’s highlight,
this merry mix is always a welcome sight,
who is ready with a twist to serve and delight,
on any day a special night.
