Digging on site today, Eric, Assaf and my crew digging in D-West-West discovered that archaeologists would make pretty good mixologists as well. This is what we came up with:
Kabreeze: A cocktail of lemon, mint and vodka (Perfect Vodka works best), garnished with an avocado.
Kabrito: Like a mohito, only better: white rum, sugar cane juice, lime, carbonated water, and mint. Again, garnish with an avocado.
Mud Brick: Bailey’s, Kahlua, Vodka and milk. Garnish with maraschino cherries and serve in a glass rimmed with chocolate.
Destruction Horizon: A shot of coffee liqueur, Tabasco and Bailey’s. Top off with Bailey’s 151 and light on fire (like a flaming B-52). Drink at your own risk.
Dirty Archaeologist: Similar to a dirty martini, but substitute capers for olives.
Minoan Fresco: Blue curacao, St. Germain and champagne. Garnish with a miniature bull-leaper.
Kabritini: Arrack, Vermouth and Kina Lillet (or similar bronze-colored alcohol). Garnish with an olive.
We also excavated some more this week. But maybe someone else will blog about that.
