So my co-worker’s boyfriend is really great at awesome craft cocktails. He makes his own bitters and puts together really interesting liquors and syrups and what not. They sound like really delicious combinations. My co-worker’s job is to name the cocktails and she told us this and asked for input.
Now, knowing me, I couldn’t help but think of really stupid names, like Pippy Pear or Spicy Brutus. But, then I thought, how hilarious would it be if the name had absolutely nothing to do with the actual cocktail and as something super mundane and completely opposite? It’s not really that funny, but I couldn’t help but cackle about it.
I mean, what if the cocktail was called the Brussel Sprout and it was really just a cider beer?
Or a drink called The Chicken Strip Basket…oh man, I’m dying over here…and it’s really just a whiskey and coke?
Or a Corn Dog…that’s a strawberry daiquiri.
Maybe there could be a plain old mimosa called the Cobb Salad.
Yes, easily amused and over caffeinated.
