ハイボールと三丁目の夕日

新聞にウイスキーの広告が出ていて、ハイボール(ウイスキーのソーダ割り)の作り方が書いてあった。美味しそうだったので、飲みたくなり、ウイスキーの方は飲みかけのが残っていたので、酒屋さんにソーダを買いにいった。

ハイボールを飲んだのはいつ以来か忘れたくらいだったけど、飲んでみたら、冷たくてなかなか美味しかった。オカダはビール党なのでビール以外はほとんど飲まないのだけど、このウイスキーは「ジョニー・ウォーカー」の黒ラベルで、村上春樹の『海辺のカフカ』を読んで飲みたくなり買ってきたもの。

ちなみに、ハイボールとは気球の事だそうで、「西部開拓時代の1865年5月10日、東部オハマと西部サンフランシスコから敷設を始めた鉄道がユタ州のプリモントリー・ポイントで繋がったのだが、それまでインディアンからの襲撃を見張り、被害を最小限に食い止めた気球に工事に参加した皆が「ハイボール!」と、ウイスキーソーダで乾杯して以来、ウイスキーソーダをハイボールと言うようになった」とのこと。

2杯目は、味付けに柚子の絞り汁を垂らしてみたら、さっぱりとした感じでさらに美味しかった。日頃コマーシャリズムに批判的なオカダが、まんまと新聞広告にアオられてしまったのは少しひっかかるけど、うまかったのだから良しとしよう。

それを飲みながら、映画『ALWAYS~三丁目の夕日』のDVDを見た。感想はまた後日。明日からお盆休み。のんびりできるといいなあ。

本を読んでてこれ食べたいとか飲みたいとかは、よくありますねえ。
ええ、もちろん新聞広告なんて誘われっぱなしです(笑)。
いまみたいに時間があるときだと作ったりしますね。

西部開拓時代の、鉄道工事を請け負わされた中国移民の物語(ヤングアダルト)を借りて来ました。
まだ読み始めてませんが、歴史というのはやっぱり勝者の物語で、こういう血の滲む苦労をした人々のことはなおざりにされてるんだなぁ、とちょっと思ったところです。
ハイボールとはそんな時代の生まれなのですね。

ご相伴にあずかりたいです。
なすと桃とトマトときゅうりもお持ちします(笑い)。
