A March to the Gallows

They must stay up nights thinking up stupid cocktails to foist off on the young and impressionable, cynical shit made with stuff that doesn’t go together, like Gin, Vodka, Rum and Rye, partial shots of each topped off with Irish crème and stirred, served as a shooter and given gross names with sexual connotations, knowing …
