Making cocktails is one hobby I have. Another is writing pangrams, which are phrases that include every letter of the alphabet (like "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.") I've actually published a new original pangram every weekday for many years on my admittedly absurd Daily Pangram blog.


These hobbies collided recently when I decided to see if I could write cocktail recipes that were themselves pangrams. I thought you all might get a kick out of the results. Here's the list, which actually starts with a viable recipe but quickly goes south from there:


  • Good drink, FYI: just mix up twelve oz. each: limeade, tequila, water, & beer.
  • "Happy Kid": a jigger of aqua vitae, six oz. club soda, lemon twist.
  • Mix gin & strawberry juice. Freeze overnight. Drink up quickly.
  • Mexican tequila, just a dash of key lime bitters, fizzy water. Serve straight up.
  • Galaxy Brew: 1 oz. vodka, 1 oz. tequila, a half-teaspoon lemon juice.
  • "Execrable Cocktail": two oz. ea. OJ, Plymouth gin,Veuve Clicquot, and Fresca.
  • Down a jigger of Sauza tequila, body-check the next person who moves.
  • My version of "Sex on the Beach": 2 oz. tequila, Mtn Dew, pickle juice. No garnish.
  • A gin fizz, w/ tequila, served in a mop bucket: "The Sexy Janitor."
  • Muddle six breakfast patties with soju, freeze in liquid NO2, anchovy garnish.

I'm not saying I'd like it, but I'd go as far as no 7 if drinking sequentially :biggrin:

If I get to supply the mop bucket, could be swayed to go up to nine.
