    Greatest drink names

    Ever have a Mayan Sacrifice? or a Harvey Wallbanger?

    I'm not a big fan of liquor, so I frequently find the best part of most drinks is the name.
    What are your favorite drink names? The best names IMO are the ones that somehow (however peripherally) relate to the ingredients or manner in which it is served.
    e.g. a 'Depth Charge' is really nothing more than a boilermaker. you drop the entire shot glass of whiskey into the beer mug and drink it as it's sinking
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    This is AKA a boilermaker. We used to set tequila on fire and shoot it. (A Dan Haggerty?)
    Overall, I gotta go with BEER.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Personally, I like serving a woman a Donkey Punch.
