Time to get your booze on kiddos. It's the big booze show. Of course every show is a big booze show for me. But this time I've got all the boozy songs in one place for you, and a few drinks that you can slurp up while listening. From The Who to The Gymslips, from Indigo Swing to The Heartbeat, lots of drinking songs to go with your libations.

In a shaker put ice
4 parts gin
half a part vermouth
shake and pour
add an olive or a twist or a cocktail onion to garnish.
The key is having it as cold as possible.

Suave Manhattan
In a shaker put ice
3 parts bourbon
1 part tuaca liqueur
a splash of sweet vermouth
shake and pour
add a cherry for garnish.
Man it's out of this world. It turns tha manhattan upside down. And as long as you're underneath with your mouth open, thats just fine.

Da Communist
In a shaker put ice
2 part gin
1 part orange juice
1/2 part cherry brandy
1/2 part lemon juice
Shake over ice, pour and enjoy. (Trust me on the cherry brandy, a little goes a long way.)

The Who -- Boris The Spider
