Prague, Belarusians, and a drink to avoid
By toddfast on Nov 13, 2004
This time around, though, I will definitely not be ordering what the bartender at the Diplomat told me was a fave among Prague youth: shots of Red Bull and absinthe. <shudder> Contrary to someone's assumption, combining two horrible-tasting drinks doesn't make them taste better--quite the contrary, in fact.
Don't actually try this, but here is a guess at a recipe to approximate the taste of this horrible concoction, since absinthe is largely unavailable in the US (though actually it's not illegal, as most people think):
- 1 can of Red Bull
- 3 aspirin tablets (for the bitterness)
- Handful of grass clippings (for the sickening plant flavor)
- Everclear (for the kick)
