cocktail (n.)
"strong, stimulating, cold American drink," first attested 1806; H.L. Mencken lists seven versions of its origin, perhaps the most durable traces it to French coquetier "egg-cup" (15c.; in English cocktay). In New Orleans, c. 1795, Antoine Amédée Peychaud, an apothecary (and inventor of Peychaud bitters) held Masonic social gatherings at his pharmacy, where he mixed brandy toddies with his own bitters and served them in an egg-cup. On this theory, the drink took the name of the cup.

The thread for cocktails.

Pay homage to legendary drinks, or devise your own. Submit recipes to be listed and credited, including but not requiring backstory or any otherwise ornamental verbiage. Or perhaps there is an accompanying ritual.

What histories have these spirits? What ethereal potlatch may they convene? What trials have they promised our viscera?

If nothing else, beta ingesters are always welcome.

Vichy 75
A variation of the French 75 (1 part gin, 2 parts dry sparking wine, 1/2 part lemon juice, 1/4 part simple syrup) which includes an imperial splash of Jägermeister.


The name Jägermeister in German literally means "Master Hunter", "Hunt Master" or "master of the hunt". It is a title for a high-ranking official in charge of matters related to hunting and gamekeeping. The term Jägermeister had existed as a job title for many centuries. In 1934 the new Reichsjagdgesetz (Reich Hunting Law) re-defined the term, applying it to senior foresters, game wardens, and gamekeepers in the German civil service. Hermann Göring was appointed Reichsjägermeister (Reich Hunting Master) when the new hunting law was introduced. Thus, when Jägermeister was introduced in 1935, its name was already familiar to Germans, who sometimes called the product "Göring-Schnaps".


Grey Tonic
1 part Earl Grey infused gin (just soak a few teabags in a mason jar overnight), 3 parts tonic water. No lime.


Sloppy Wopshire
1 oz whiskey (of any regional variation - that is, until the origin of surname Wopshire can be established) dropped into a dark ale, honey to taste. Untested.


Violet Fog
A variation of the London Fog (Earl Grey tea, cream, vanilla syrup) which includes a dash (or two for the bold) of Creme de violette.


Death at Two Thirds to Five
A variation of Ernest Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon (sparking wine, splash of absinthe) which includes a dropper (?) of CBD oil. Untested.

I had a feeling he'd have a good lineup, but I didn't know any. I've heard of the Singapore Sling, never tried it though.

Think I first heard of a Singapore Sling via HST. Pretty sure he mentions drinking a bunch toward the start of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

So long as they are Dissensus originals. This is a budding, first-rate establishment.

And I think it would be cool to have feedback on them, so they can all be improved. Perhaps if there is disagreement, a schism will occur.
