5 Incredibly Gnarly Drinks

5. The Gambler

It consists of:

* Half filling the glass with ice
* Half filling the glass with Smirnoff
* Half filling the rest with blue Gatorade. Only blue. No other kind worked.

4. The Lazy Susan

* Fill a glass with crushed ice.
* One can of Dr Pepper. Fill glass 3/4 of the way, drink the rest of what is left in the can.
* Fill the rest of the glass with cheap rum.
* Unwrap a Hostess™ Sno-Ball. Preferably the pink one.
* Take a large swig of your drink, and follow it with a large bite of the Sno-Ball. The trick is to finish both at the same time.

3. The Intervention.

Modified from the popular joke about the sexual position. Google it.

This particular drink has a history of a bet I lost while watching a certain episode of A&E’s “Intervention”. However, it’s a lot of fun.

* You will need one bottle of Peppermint Schnapps, and one can full of whipped cream, and a TV showing “Intervention”. That is how the original game was played - in a basement apartment, too.
* Take shots of Peppermint Schnapps alternated with a mouthful of whipped cream every time a family member cries.

2. The Bacontini

I’ve actually seen this served in a real bar in New York - somewhat different.

* Cook 3 strips of bacon until crisp.
* Immediately eat one. Why? Just because.
* Crumble up the second one, put into ice in the Martini shaker.
* Strain the gin and vermouth through one of those Martini shaker things.
* Place other bacon strip into this new drink.
* Congratulate yourself.

1. The Quantum Leap

* One tall can of PBR
* One shot of vodka.
* One shot of Jack Daniels.
* One half can of Red Bull.
* Mix.
* Drink.
