Over the last few months as I’ve plunged in my latest hobby, the creation of classical and obscure cocktails, I’ve found it funny that so many of the drinks are named after the Prince of Darkness. Two of the best cocktails you’ll ever have are entitled the Satan’s Whiskers and the Diablo.
Of course, one of the very best drinks (actually a family of drinks) ever created is called the Corpse Reviver, which one could, I suppose argue is a reference to the resurrection. But since the resurrection is not supposed to be merely the resuscitation of a corpse, I don’ think that quite works.
This leaves me to think that a truly Christian cocktail is yet to be invented. I think we need something called “The Jesus.” And it should be some sort of salute to the hilarious antagonist in the Big Lebowski as well. When I make it all let you know. Until then, we muse cede the point that the kingdom of darkness has all the good cocktails.
