The Jacqueline

We don’t normally drink cocktails here at Tipsy Pilgrim, unless you count the carajillo. We’d prefer to drink something of quality, of character, rather than try to hide something evil in fruity sugar-water.

But we realize that some of you are complete pussies. So here’s a typically French summer drink, as mixed at a picnic during Paris Plage, the ersatz beach that Paris erects on the banks of the Seine every August.

It’s called the Jacqueline, and it’s a mix of white wine, grenadine (pomegranate or other fruit syrup), and sparkling lemonade.  Santé !

Comments Policy

We read the comments; useful additions and corrections are quite welcome, and articles are frequently updated based on comments from readers. • We do our best to delete ethnocentric, xenophobic, and other useless comments. • Offended? Think we've got your culture all wrong? Nationalism (or regionalism, patriotism, whatever) is an understandable reaction; it’s also boring. Disagree with something? Tell us what you think joking, flirting, drinking, sex, dancing and other debauchery in your culture is really like. If you don't like these things, or want to pretend that your culture doesn't have a unique take on them, you're really in the wrong place. • This site, like any cultural anthropology, deals in generalizations. Of course not each and every person does blah, blah, blah... • And finally, before you go thinking this is all about you, you may want to bounce around the site a bit and learn about the ridiculous ways we screw, drink, and dance in other parts of the world.
