Still better than the Sourtaint Cocktail

Unsurprisingly, severed toes are hard to come by, with one of the toes used previously donated to the bar following a lawnmower accident. So you can imagine the bar's anger when its its most recent acquisition was stolen.
This particular toe was more favoured than most by the bar, as it had been a relatively 'fresh' donation, given to the bar by a man who had to have it surgically removed, and was a hammer toe, meaning it was particularly large and curled down, which meant it presented less of a choking risk...


The Toe of Theseus, so to speak.

Sourtoe cocktail ?

I've had Sourtoe bread, Sourtoe pizza, and Sourtoe pancakes, but never any Sourtoe beverage.

what a stupid gimmick.

As a chaser, they should offer a Yukon Jack cocktail with an order of toe jam on the side.

Try Toes'Rus, we have a wide assortment of severed toes as well as same day shipping.

A $500 state fine for swallowing it? Is the charge cannibalism?

I've been reading through the National Lampoon magazine lately. I bought the DVD-ROM ages ago and am finally getting around to reading it now.

Somewhere around 1980 there was a bit in the True Facts section about a customer who ordered the drink in 1978 then swallowed it all down in one swift go, including the toe. Bar staff were not happy.

I once knew a bar maid who mastered the art of making puke inducing cocktails to get rid of shiatbag customers on nights when management wouldn't pay for a bouncer. One should always be leary of free cocktails, especially if other patrons appear displeased by your presence.

No, this was back in the day when vodka+redull+??? was some sort of a "blaster". Her "dirty blasters" were ice, redbull and vodka with a wide straw filled with a blend of Yeagermeister, tequilla and whatever other gut wrenching yet completely legit bar mixer was handy, as far as I could tell.

This is revenge for that business trip to Canada where I had to use the company VPN in order to watch Game of Thrones and deal with the IT department nastygram when I got home.

It says the sourtoe tradition dates back to the 1920s, but then later says that's when the original toe was lost/preserved in champagne, and wasn't rediscovered until 1973.  So wouldn't that mean that the "sourtoe cocktail," as a think being consumed, only dates back that far?

Either the author is bad or the backstory is misleading.

Probably a cement mixer shot.

Bailey's with some lime juice floated on top.  When you shoot it they mix together and the lime juice makes the cream in the Bailey's curdle.  If you don't know what's coming things can get real pukey in a hurry.

Like Sheldon's 'mee-maw' on "Big Bang Theory":

Sheldon: "Here's your drink made just the way you like it: whisky, lots of it, in a glass."

One of these years I'd like to ride my motorcycle up there. Not during Dust to Dawson however.
