Drink of the Week newsletter: Like Shakespeare, except you get to drink.
Drink of the Week for Jan 23rd, 2004: Will Rogers
What we had to say
Another week, another drink, another bold adventure. And when we say adventure, we mean "violation of local labour laws". This week, our vaunted editors decided to raise morale, and they sent out a memo to plan a company ski trip to a luxury resort! Of course, by the time the memo reached upper management, "ski trip" had become "hunted with helicopters", and "luxury resort" had become "jungles of Borneo". We'd sue, but apparently there are some big investors touring the company, and we forgot to read the fine print on our contracts. Also, it's hard to find a lawyer in the jungle.
Being the savvy MacGyvers of Drink that we are, we managed to build a radio out of large ferns and a shoelace (we didn't have any coconuts). By carefully modulating the frequency of our fern output, we managed to tap into an 802.11g wireless hotspot in Balikpapan and transmit this week's recipe to you, our beloved non-jungle-bound readers. As always, we hope you enjoy it, although this week we're using a little less hope than usual since we have to save some for hoping that this tiger pit gets finished before nightfall. We saw them eyeing our gin when we arrived.
