new drink

I’m trying to think of a new name for a drink. A cider I represent in my portfolio when combined with a spirit makes a great drink. Details: Rochdale Ginger-lime cider mixed with dark spiced rum. So what should I call it? Ginger’s dark secret? Happy poison? Spicy secret? As you can tell I’m not very good at making up new names for drinks.

Okay, if someone cuts me off in traffic I can rapidly think of several new names to give the imbecile. But blind moron is not a good name for a drink. Neither is your mother should have had an abortion. But I need to think of a name that makes one smile and think good thoughts. Please send me your suggestions and I’ll buy you a drink next Thursday at the Beerhunter (or any bar in my driving area).

Story titles is a different matter. I can think of lots on names there. The Naked Scorpion. Bound and Tied to Honour. A Witches’ Fashion Show. The plot is a different matter but, trust me, I can work that out. I have made a story out of one sentence (please see future Pulitzer Prizes for examples) that turned into a book. Hey, I’m good. What should I say except that I’m still want to win some sort of award?

 Back to liquor and drinks- a subject I’m more familiar with. I do have a lot of fun with meeting with people and sampling drinks certainly is a pleasant way to spend the afternoon (or morning in some cases). I was in the town of Tofield and spent half an hour talking to the owner about anthropology. It’s amazing how a good Pinot Noir can make conversation easier, even one about ancient people. I wonder what they drank and if they had any good names for drinks.
