Don't Drink This: Yacht Club / Lily Bart

Every so often, Izzet and Boros come up with a shitty idea for a drink and ask you to get together with your friends to drink it.  We call it "Don't Drink This".

Social mobility has been on the collective societal brain a lot in the last four years, and the cultural archetype of the nouveau poor is increasingly prominent. With this in mind, we here at Inebriated Spook think it's important to embrace versatility in drink recipes, and so we give you a beverage with two faces: one is great to sip on the deck of your weekender while you're enjoying the glittering Cape Cod sun, and one (special thanks to Edith Wharton) tastes almost as good and brings up pleasant memories of days gone by while you're licking your financial wounds in your one-room apartment in the Bronx. Either way, you're prepared – which is the best thing you can be in this economy.

The Yacht Club:

1 part limoncello
1 part champagne
2 parts single-malt Scotch
Serve straight up in a chilled highball. Garnish with a twenty dollar bill and enjoy.

The Lily Bart:

1 part lemonade
1 part Andre
2 parts Jack
Serve with ice in a plastic cup. Garnish with a thin lemon slice and attempt to enjoy.
