another beverage

I call this one the "Writing Depression":

  • Fill a pint glass up with ice
  • fill 1/4 with vodka
  • 1/4 wild strawberry liquor
  • splash of triple sec
  • top off with club soda (preferably Big K brand)
  • sip while watching football, trying to figure out how to fix your manuscript problems, become self-deluded that you'll actually finish the book in 11 days.

Although strawberry in any preparation--other than fresh--is not my flavor of choice, sounds like you have found the perfect lubrication for the mental gears.

Substitutions are, of course, allowed. Grape liqueur, banana, limoncello, whatever. Just give me a citation.

The problem, though, is that this is one of those drinks that has over 1/2 alcohol. It tastes relatively alcohol-free, though. In other words, it has the real power to mess you up.
