Mixed Drinks

by Lyn Carceo

Do they call them mixed drinks because of what they do to you? I've had menehunes, Polynesian drinks named for Hawaiian leprechauns; good stuff; rum smooth, but watch yourself. With all mixed drinks, you have to pace yourself and know your limit. I've seen people handle their first drink with no problem, but be passed out and under the table with the second. Mixed drinks bite; no wonder they have names like "scorpion bowl." I'm a beer and wine person myself, so I usually pass on mixed drinks, but, as with any alcohol, I know my limit; do you?
