Hey -- no whooping cough!

I'm not as baroque as I thought I was...lab tests were negative for whooping cough. Apparently I just had a common, or garden variety, chest infection.

I'm so glad that was cleared up.

Blue Moon

Reading Iain Banks' Raw Spirit (which I highly recommend), and I come across this recipe for a mixed drink which approaches sheer insanity:

Blue Moon, per Iain Banks

Fill (British) pint glass half with ice cubes

1 shot each:

vodka
gin
white rum
tequila
Cointreau
Pernod
blue curaçao

dash lime juice

top up with lemonade 7-Up or Sprite (per pnh)

Oooookaaaaay...those crazy Scots.
