Encyclopedae and Long Island Iced Tea

I’m glad I’m not the only child who had an obsession reading the Encyclopedia. So how about it? Hands up if you spent portions of your childhood reading the encyclopedia. I know I wanted to read through the entire set of the 1985 version of Encyclopedia Britannica.

Ok, so I gave up somewhere in A, but I remember reading about Aardvarks

Also, I was checking

fortune

for a new .sig file and was surprised with the following entry:

1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. rum (preferably dark)
3/4 oz. tequilla
1/2 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz. sour mix
1/2 oz. cola
shake with ice and strain into frosted glass.
Long Island Iced Tea

Awesome 😀

Yeah I used to read the encyclopedia too…

And that Long Island Iced Tea recipie might come in handy, even if it’s not quite the same as the recipie we used to drink…

heh, I was just suprised to see the recipe in place of a random quote. Made me want one despite being the middle of a workday!

Nothing like a workday to make you crave a cocktail.
