There's a drink I've seen some afro-caribbean people have round here a bit, which is a can of "nourishment", that sort of meal in a can slim fast type deal, mixed with Guinness. Like half a pint of Guinness then you slowly pour the can of nurishment in. There's a guy I worked with on a film once who did it, cos he didn't have time to eat properly.


Never tried it, I'm not a fan of those meals in a drink. Weird concept. When I was as uni all my mates used to have this thing called "build up" before a night out, rather than eat actual dinner. It was the same thing except cheaper cos it was powdered. I never got into that. Even more awful cos they got all lumpy.
its a quick version of gunniess punch extensively discussed here

QUEEN MARY:Vodka Wyborowa, home-made spice mix, fresh beetroot and tomato juice.
MEXICAN MARY:Tequila Don Juervo, Porto wine, grapefruit and lime juice, home-made spice mix with celery salt and paprika and tomato juice.

these are the drinks i had for breakfast. the queen mary need some more depth to balance the sharp high notes, a bit of bass and ballast. the mexican one was actually pretty decent. enjoyed it.

got shitfaced on grappa one time. made from the winemaking leftovers: distilled skins, pulp, seeds, stems. wasn't bad for a garbage mixture.

and slivovitz, a damson plum brandy, with a bunch of old jewish guys. their drink of choice.

Just had some grappa and tonic, with some pomegranate molasses, while reading the trial of Socrates aloud to myself.

Interesting point someone here made, in our exchange about the Islamic intellectual tradition, that the word alcohol meant something having to do with the evacuation of the individual's spirit only to be replaced by those daemonic forces of intoxication.

Actually I may have had a joke recipe that involved something that oughtn't be ingested, but I'll have to retrieve it from the depths of memory as I may not have written it down.

A thought to sow among those who may be interested. Is there a way we can establish a group fund to purchase bottles of interest for contributors' birthdays? Would it be of enough interest to people?

And for the menu, I'd like to submit:

Il colore del melograno

1 part Grappa
3 parts tonic water
a splash of pomegranate molasses

Mr. @Clinamenic, as the bartender of this establishment it would be my resolute pleasure to include this among our offerings.

Il Colore del Melograno
1 part Grappa
3 parts tonic water
a splash of pomegranate molasses

Admittedly, I do still need to configure a proper format here, seeing as I am locked out of the original post.

As for the hypothetical group booze of the year, perhaps it may be decided in secret among contributors, based on the known preferences of the recipient.
