Follies of the Mad Men #190


Yeah, the first thing I think of when I get thirsty for booze is "Froggy Went a-Courtin'" and sexy swimsuit frogs.

Ah yes, Calvert - the cheap house brand served everywhere.

One thing I learned belatedly in life: Always order your drink by brand name (i.e. "Tanqueray and tonic") and watch the bartender mix it.

Good advice KDP, Make mine a Black Seal and Coke Please!
To be fair though, Calvert made (makes?) a pretty good whiskey. I grew up in Maryland not far from the Calvert distillery. :coolsmile:

First thing I think of when I see frogs and "blending" is "What's red and green and spins at 100 mph?"
