Drink of the Week for Nov 1st, 2001: Apricot Cocktail

What we had to say

Well, we could have done a halloween drink this week, except Thursday this week was the day after halloween. And a week ago it was too early. Unless you subscribe to the corporate theory of "Halloween starts the day after Labor Day", which we don't. We don't even subscribe to the theory of Continental Drift. I mean, c'mon, seriously. Continents? Drifting around? Wha hah hah!


Anyway, we still have our Halloween theme in the barbook. And although it may not be scary unless you have barophobia, this drink is tasty and good, like usual.
