All this time I 've regarded a Gargle Blaster as a crazy mixed drink with a funny name.

Talk about Comically Missing the Point, huh?

Supertrope or split?

I'm wondering if there should be some distinctions made, or if there's a missing supertrope here, partly because there's a mixture of cocktails/mixed drinks and stand-alone items (Romulan ale, Granny's moonshine, whiskey, absinthe, etc.). Also, some drinks, while strong, are only hush- or question-inducing when ordered by certain people (who aren't expected to be able to hold their booze or have much experience with it). I've also thought of a couple of items that that don't exactly involve ordering a drink in a bar (the stuff is the contents of a personal hip flask or a special bottle as a gift or opened for a special occasion). Perhaps a surpertrope called Particularly Potent Potables?

Cut some natter, and also this...

  • The mix of milk and some bit of pot known as "Happy Milk". This is mostly done to leach the stuff out of weak pot, THC being lipophilic and milk being an emulsion of fat in water.
    • Only this is not alcohol based, if want to talk 'Pot' & Alcohol, let's talk abut 'Potka', same procedure, but with Vodka (which also emulsifies THC).

I'm not sure if there's a valid Gargle Blaster hidden in that description, but there has to be a better way of expressing the point than striking the whole example and adding correcting edit at the bottom.

Also, I'm still lol'ing that this is our number one inbound page. :)
