Coupling: An Old Series with a New Cocktail
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.
