Old Fashioned Glass with Zucchini

Oil painting of a green zucchini beside an Old Fashioned glass.
This type of glass is sometimes known as an Old Fashioned glass, a name it apparently inherited from the Old Fashioned cocktail which is made with sugar and bitters mixed with a distilled spirit such as whisky or brandy.  Unsurprisingly, gin is used to make a variation known as the Gin Old Fashioned, which, if made with Gordon's Gin, might conceivably be known as a Gordon's Old Fashioned.  That's almost what I've depicted here in this gourd old fashioned painting.

What a long way to go for a gourd-awful pun.

Oil on canvas board, 6" x 4"
