Probably need some “hair of the dog” after last night but I hope that 20 days in to this, our livers have grown accustomed to the nightly onslaught of alcohol.

Tomorrow we are going to start drinking in the morning, should we ease off today?

Option #1:
Mint Julep – Isn’t the Kentucky Derby run on a Saturday and what do they serve there? The recipe says it is a cocktail “primarily” consisting of Bourbon so no easing off today.

Option #2:
Saturday Slammer – Ingredients
1 oz. Pineapple Rum
1 oz. Strawberry Rum
1 oz. Coconut Rum
.5 oz Blue Curacao
1 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Pineapple Juice
.5 oz Grenadine
Cherry for garnish
This one doesn’t sound like a lightweight either

Saturday Slammer

Option #3:
Rum & Coke – a classic

  • Thoughts? A rum and coke has its place, the others- not for me.
  • Is drinking on Saturday different? Not in these times. All days are treated equally.
  • How is my liver doing? Really well since I wrote this prior to the holiday season and have had time for a transplant.
  • Many people ride their bicycles on Saturday. Drink suggestions for them? Wait till after the ride! It is not efficient to haul the required amount of alcohol on one’s bike.
