Route 66 Kick
By Kathleen Ostrander

There are many kicks along Route 66, and even driving it is a kick. If you want a drink with a kick on Route 66, go to the Globe Tavern, 701 E. Adams St., located at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel and Conference Center. Sit in the street-level casual atmosphere and watch the world go by. Served in a chilled martini glass, a Route 66 Kick is a sublime study of lemony bliss. But a word of warning: More than one kick is not advised unless you've got a designated driver for the rest of the route.

How to make it:

In a chilled, 8-ounce Martini glass with a sugared rim:

Mix 3 oz. Absolut Citroen (lemon flavored vodka)

Add a splash of sweet and sour mix

(lemon or lime flavor mixed with sugar syrup)

Shake, shake, shake over ice in a martini shaker

Garnish with a twist of lemon
