The Zen of Naming Cocktails

FT, at his Bar Veloce in Soho, has two cocktails on the menu: Patience and Fortitude.

Of the two, I prefer Fortitude. Which maps astonishingly well with real life.

According to Webster:

Patience: an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay.

Fortitude: mental and emotional strength in facing difficulty, adversity, danger, or temptation courageously.

Once in a thing, once on a path, execution (regardless of the difficulty) seems overwhelmingly easier than waiting to trigger in the first place.

Difficulty, I can handle. Restlessness gets the better of me, every time.
