Geneabloggers Cocktail Recipe Book

It all started with Rob Stanhope, @maineroots on Twitter. He sent out a link to a cocktail called Corpse Reviver No. 2.

I commented that the recipe looked great, but the name was to die for! Then our geneablogging rock star, Amy Coffin of We Tree, remarked that we needed a Geneabloggers Cocktail Recipe Book.

I'm no good at mixology, but I've got a name for one. I know all the very creative geneabloggers out there can come up with a few relevant cocktail names. So leave them in the comments!

Well we could keep some cocktail names as they are now:

Death In The Afternoon (absinthe and champagne)
Old Fashioned (bourbon)

Slow 'Net Fizz for those days when the Internet just drags.

Heck, Corpse Reviver No. 2 is good for genealogy *and* Halloween. Now, what is Corpse Reviver No. 1?

OK, here goes [all drink names are in quotes]:

For those ancestors who [a-hem] may have seen life from the wrong side of a jail cell: "Alabama Slammer"

With a nod to World War I history and our ancestors that may have participated: "Allies"

For all of our ancestors who came to find a new life and for their "American Dream"

For the researcher who is able to trace their ancestry to man who may have looked like Russell Crowe and who was a "Gladiator" or perhaps to the "Fall of Rome"

With a nod to all of the Mary's [rolling eyes heavenward] in our trees, here's 2 more: "Mary Rose Martini" and "Mary Pickford Cocktail"

For those researchers who feel like a "Newport Codebreaker" and who feel "Damn Good!" about their family tree finds, you might want to try "Hot Damn"

For those who have achieved genealogical "Serendipity", you might feel like you deserve to act like an "Island Girl" after only a "Weekend on the Beach" drinking in that "Tequila Sunrise"

Or perhaps your family tree could be entitled "The Gold, the Bad, and the Ugly" and after a visit from the "Derailer" in "Aggravation", you feel like exclaiming, "Beam Me Up Scotty"

Perhaps you have found "Viking Blood" in your familial lines, and you feel like having a little, ok a lot, of "Whoop Juice"

For those of you who find yourselves [or someone else does] at "Five in the Morning" "Passed Out Naked on the Bathroom Floor" or maybe you are simply an "Insomniac", try a little hair of the dog with "Passoa Recovery"

Holy Cow you guys! Great work.

How about a "Slippery Ancestor" for the ones that try and get away!

These just keep getting better and better!

Thank you everyone. I guess we're going to have to produce a real book.
