Exhibit #96: Ship of Fools
A crew of seven utterly ridiculous drinks – either in terms of ingredients, proportions, or concept. But here’s the rub: one of them is not actually an old drink, but something we came up with to throw you off the scent. Can you spot the impostor? For the online edition of the menu, we've changed the names of the drinks so you can't use the interwebs to cheat...
