Say hello to the Adios

When my date spilled a glass of ice water on the floor—gracefully, I should point out—Marco the busboy rushed by to mop it up. The three of us fell into a “least favorite drink” conversation.

Marco’s least favorite drink: the Adios, Motherf*cker. So, obviously, I ordered one. Not knowing what was inside, I might add.

In a sense, the Adios, Motherf*cker is the worst of both worlds: It looks girlie drink but tastes like rubbing alcohol. Should you want to attempt it at home, here's the recipe:

1/2 oz. Vodka

1/2 oz. Rum

1/2 oz. Tequila

1/2 oz. Gin

1/2 oz. Blue Curacao liqueur

2 oz. Sweet and sour mix

2 oz. Soda

The second one—my third drink of the night—tasted better than the first. Though I can’t recommend the drink to you in good conscience, as it made a liar out of me. At the start of the night, I told my date, “I don’t ever get hangovers.”

Turns out, I do.
