The 'Conk'

So, I was in the kitchen in S&D's today and we were getting through some of the stock from their nightclub that they recently wound up.

Feeling a tad creative, I grabbed the nearest two bottles; Midori and Smirnoff, and put them in a glass with ice. Then I took some cranberry juice and added that. Y'know, in case the melon and vodka weren't getting on. Then I added some soda (or 'sprite' as the Americans would say). Then I drank it.

It tasted jolly good. Thus began the night.

My new drink is named after the fact that my English aunt and uncle could never quite pronounce my name in Irish. Conchúr IS a difficult word for a non-gaelgeoir, so it's understandable that they call me conker.

Ladies and gentlemen,I give you...THE CONK.

NB. unfortunately one cannot patent a beverage, but I shall forever hold the drink very near to my heart as my own invention. Maybe one day it shall achieve greatness.

Good night!

  1. The Conk? Sounds delicious. The "let's use up the last of these five different bottles" drinks are always the best.
