Mixed Bizness: “Hold the Meat, I’m Sipping Blood” Edition

 

Meat-flavored boozing: it’s not just for bacon lovers anymore. Via Dara Lind and Peter Suderman:

The Alaska Distillery in Wasilla just recently launched its Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka, about a year after the Seattle-based Black Rock Spirits introduced a bacon-flavored vodka. […] “I think there was some madness and some drunkenness involved, honestly,” said Toby Foster, an Alaska Distillery partner and the one charged with coming up with new flavors with Alaska themes. […] “I was trying to think of something Alaskan. What’s more Alaskan than smoked salmon? It was one of those epiphanies, I suppose,” he said.

Forgive me for steering clear of meat spirits until I can buy a bottle of Sarah Palin’s Alaskan Moose Vodka. I prefer to sip a little blood — sangrita, that is, the best (to the point of being the only) way to drink tequila. Trust me on this. Find one of those restaurant-ketchup-sized squeeze bottles and put into it the following:

1/2 part tomato juice

1/3 part orange juice

juice from one lemon and lime

seven dashes of Tabasco sauce

two dashes of Worcester sauce

Now, pour yourself a tall shot of good tequila and, in a separate shot glass of equal height, a ration of sangrita. Sip a little from the first. Then a little from the second. Vaya con dios.

    Change the last few lines and it would be perfect:

    Tequila is an instrument of proletariat angst invented to make rich people eat worms. Tastes like it, too.
