3 LAME DRINKS YOU CAN MAKE FOR YOUNG NEW YEAR’S EVE GUESTS


On December 31st of 1978 my sister and I played kid bartenders/waiters at one of my parents’ New Year’s Eve parties. My great Aunt Gert (God rest her soul) had a creepy boyfriend (Walter) that was a fan of the classic boozes.  After stealing around 5.75 generous sips of his Wild Turkey on the rocks...
...I greeted 1979 hurling my chunky sacrifice into the porcelain god downstairs.  THE MORAL TO THE STORY… don’t be a CREEPY WALTER to young impressionable partygoers. Instead, whip up one of these lame libations (courtesy of Drinkmixer.com).


Mix with crushed ice in a glass and garnish with mint leaves.




Pour over ice in a chilled glass and stir. Garnish with a cherry.



10 oz root beer
1 1/2 oz whipped cream

Pour root beer over ice cream and chocolate syrup in a glass. Garnish with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Serve with a straw and a long spoon.
