Drinking With Bwog: The Mind Eraser

Every week, CBA continues on their quest to mess you up. Upset about this morning’s spotted shadow? Matt Kalish is here to help you forget all about it…
Happy Groundhog Day, Columbia! Most of the notable groundhogs who emerged this morning, including Staten Island Chuck, told us what we could have told them weeks ago: Spring has arrived early. Punxsutawney Phil, on the other hand, seems to have been living in a hole for the past month (badum-ching). While Hollywood in recent years has destroyed the holidays of Valentines Day and New Years Eve, Groundhog Day sits alongside Independence Day as an excellent holiday movie. We’ve all had our share of bad days, but only Bill Murray had to relive his 38 times. If he had just made this drink…
2 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. Tonic Water, Sprite, or club soda
Pour the Vodka and Kahlua over ice in a lowball glass, then add the tonic. Drink with a straw from the bottom of the glass. The last ingredient is entirely personal preference — I’ve seen it made all 3 ways. Each leaves a slightly different aftertaste so try them all and see what works for you. This can also be served with smaller portions as a shot.
If you’re not sure if you made it right, wake up tomorrow and turn on your clock radio. If it’s February 2nd and “I Got You, Babe” is playing, the drink was perfect.
