The Spanish Inquisition: a Champagne Cocktail

The Spanish Inquisition created the Hangovers With Friends story. I know, it sounds a little dark. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to torture anyone or burn them at the stake on this post. The only suffering will be excessive indulgence in strong drink.

Once upon a time, there was a fully stocked bar in someone’s lakehouse. This bar had everything one could want. A wayward man gained access to this bar one sunny afternoon on New Years’ Eve of 2018. He found by mixing the distilled spirit of Vodka with delectable syrup of Hibiscus Rose he could make people happy. He could also make them do silly things.

The secret to this magic was to get them to like what they were drinking. So he put his hand to the fire and began to mix and match.

These are the essentials of the Spanish Inquisition: Hibiscus Rose syrup, lime, dry champagne and good vodka

He tossed a dash or two of this Hisbiscus Rose from Pink House Alchemy in the golden mixing cup. Then came a hearty shot of Ketel One…the clear stuff that gets you. Fresh squeezed lime covered these interesting bedfellows along with some choice cubes of frozen H2O.

By this time in the evening, the bellows of the giant hot tub were working overtime and the temperature had reached 102 degrees. The sparkling bubbles of the jacuzzi whirled around the soakers like the bubbles of champagne on top of the drinks.

Partygoers were knee deep in the hoopla of the Spanish Inquisition and all signs pointed towards debauchery. The wayward man, we’ll just call him Senor Taylor for now, was on his way to a special new cocktail recipe that would live on in the minds and stomachs of his friends.

But his work had only just begun. Glasses were empty, bathing suits were soaking and the sun was setting like a ball of fire on the sea. Senor Taylor looked at the thermometer outside and it read 4 degrees. That was less than one degree person present…not enough degrees.

As partygoers warmed themselves in the hot tub and imbibed, their exposed hair began to harden with freezing jacuzzi water like a scene from a cheap beer commercial. The deck beside the jacuzzi froze solid nearly ten feet out!

Not realizing the hardened state of the deck, one man began to dance freely to the hot tub radio and lost his balance. His feet came out from under him, he flew into the air and landed flat on his back with a thud. He lay motionless for a few moments and then, to everyone’s surprise, he got right back up and started dancing again. The Spanish Inquisition was a success…tasty, a mood enhancer and painkiller all in one!
