DON’T JUDGE A COCK­TAIL BY ITS NAME!

CLEO (Malaysia) - - SMART REPORT -

SOME COCK­TAILS HAVE

LESS THAN NOR­MAL NAMES, WHICH MAKE THEM EVEN MORE FUN TO OR­DER!

1. DEATH IN THE AF­TER­NOON

Con­tains cham­pagne and Ab­sinthe, this killer cock­tail was in­vented by nonene other than Ernest Hem­ing­way him­self, whose ac­tual in­struc­tions were to “drink three to five of th­ese slowly.” We can’t re­ally imag­ine how po­tent this mix­ture is, let alone hav­ing three to fiveve glasses. No won­der he came up with the ad­vice to “write drunk and edit sober”; his master­pieces were worth it!

2. DIRTY WHITE MOTHER

A Dirty White Mother is sim­ply a variation of the Dirty Mother (which is madeade with­out the cream on top) made from brandy, Kahlua cof­fee liqueur and cream. Most cock­tails have not-so sub­tle in­di­ca­tors to­wards naughty things, and the “dirty” part of thee name hints at some­thing darker and sin­ful.

3. SMURF PISS

Pineap­ple juice, Blue Cu­ra­cao liqueur, black­berry schnapps and Sprite go into its con­coc­tion. The colour of this drink is contradicting to its name, as it comesmes out in a pale, murky black in­stead of the elec­tric blue that jumps to mind. But then again,n, we can’t ex­pect Smurfs pee to be the same colour as their skin, right?
