If all you own is what you wear.

While we were in Prague we found a little shop that sold authentic Absinthe, so we bought a small bottle for the taxdodger. It was 72% alcohol by volume, with 10mg/l wormwood. Strong stuff. I didn't get any for me, I don't like the taste of Aniseed, but I had a taste after the taxdodger opened the bottle. We both sniffed the small amount that we had poured into a shot glass, I can't remember who went first, but we both had a taste, it was very strong, very sour and had that horrible aniseed taste. "I can't drink that" we both said simultaneously, "we're gonna have to mix it with something"
And so the Incredible Hulk was born;
1/4 shot Absinthe
1 shot Vodka
1 shot Cointreau
Key Lime crush
Slice of Lime
It's not called the Incredible Hulk because it's green, it is so named because after a night drinking these, you end up bollock naked in an alley, without a fucking clue what you were doing the night before.
