The Black Hole



vodka. 1/2 ounce.

Rum. 1/2 ounce.

gin. 1/2 ounce.

Whiskey. 1/2 ounce.

blue curaçao. 1/2 ounce.

sweet and sour mix. 2 ounces.

sprite or 7Up to fill

1/2 Oz pomegranate Grenadine



Mix everything but the grenadine into a hurricane glass. Pour grenadine along the inside and watch it swirl into the depths of the blue. Watch as the drink begins to change as if the blue curaçao you knew was slowly being sucked in to the abyss. Unable to escape. Begin feeling bad for the blue curaçao. Concoct a plan to save it by using a straw to get that grenadine from the bottom of the glass. Continue on and realize YOU have become the abyss. You weren’t the solution. You were the cause. The last bit of blue colored liquid stares at you and you the abyss stare back before extinguishing the blue color forever into darkness.

Then wake up on the couch and write the instructions from your fever dream.
