This week back in 1972, Bernice Gera became the first female umpire in pro baseball history…and then immediately resigned. Learn why she took herself out of the ballgame, then steal home to mix this All-American cocktail:
“Past-Time,” as called by Larry Foor, bar manager at The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park, Florida - a town that’s in the ballpark of America’s only two professional umpiring schools.
In a shaker with ice, add:
2 oz. vodka (Larry used one from local outfit [Flagler Spirits](http://www.flaglerchamber.org/Distillery/Flagler-Spirits-Inc)) 1/2 oz. [Hum liqueur](http://www.urbandaddy.com/chi/leisure/7878/Hum_The_Newest_Weapon_in_Your_Cocktailing_Arsenal_Chicago_CHI_Product) (or any rum if you can't find this ode to the Cubbies) 1/2 oz. sour mix (3 parts lime juice, 1 part lemon juice, 1 part simple syrup)
Shake and strain into a rocks glass full of ice. Top with a little champagne… to celebrate a future when women ump in the Majors. Add a citrus twist if desired. Take a big swing - er, swig - and call sexism “out.”
