The Wasilla Thrilla
This is an archival post taken from my old xanga blog. Comments have been disabled.
Tonight is the night of the Vice-Presidential Debates, and perhaps more importantly, its TDN, when various and sundry cocktail bloggers and their readers meet at the Mixoloseum Chat Room to entertain each other with razor-sharp wit and clever cocktail creations.
I felt that as a former Alaska resident, it would be most appropriate for me to honor this particularly serendipitous occasion with a creation inspired by my state’s contribution to the political festivities. I give you the Wasilla Thrilla, a tasty cocktail tastelessly inspired by all the things that have made the Palin Campaign what it is:
|2||oz of your favorite dark, wry (rye) whiskey|
|1||oz juice of a sour lemon|
|3/4||oz angry blue berry syrup|
|1||big pregnant drop of The Bitter Truth aromatic bitters|
|(Nobody in the U.S. will have this, but I couldn’t resist. Use a couple dashes of Peychaud’s instead.)|
|1||teaspoon of oily, money-green absinthe|
Combine all ingredients except the absinthe with ice and shake it like a retarded baby thats standing in the way of your political career and wont stop crying. Strain into a cocktail glass and inarticulately dribble the absinthe over everything else. Garnish with the hide of your enemies.
