Coupling: An Old Series with a New Cocktail

by Gaz Regan · Saturday, December 19th, 2015 · Movies and TV Quotes, Quotes


Coupling is a  Brit-Com that ran from 200 through 2004 on BBC2 in the UK. I watch it regularly via my Hulu feed.  It’s pretty darned wonderful.

On an episode I saw recently one of the main characters, a primary school teacher with a huge drinking problem, showed up at a wake, headed straight for the drinks table, and gulped down what looked to be most of a can of beer.

Then, after checking to make sure nobody was looking, she proceeded to pour vodka into the beer can, gave it a swirl, and joined everyone else at the wake, beer/vodka can in hand.

This was a drunk-trick that I’ve never seen before, so I thought it worthy of note.

Do you know any similar tricks?  Write to me at, and let me know!
