Da-da Post-Rapture, Post-Post-Modern Drink Recipe: The Blood of the Vanquished

The Blood of the Vanquished is ready to slake your thirst... FOREVER, AHHAHAHAHHAAA! Sorry.
By popular demand -- and in honor of another holiday almost upon us -- Da-da has singled out his previous drink recipe, which has become his new favorite drink this side of viscous Da-Da coffee. As Da-da mentioned months ago, he'd been working on a kind of, "Filthy Gibson," for some time with Hendrick's Gin, which has a certain vegetal taste that works well with onions (other gins don't work with this recipe), when Da-da added a robust, jiggerish splash of Mr.and Mrs. T's Bold and Spicy Bloody Mary Mix and... BOOM. Da-da had the basis of what he calls, "The Blood of the Vanquished," which describes Da-da most days. Anyway, here's the recipe:


- 2 oz. Hendrick's Gin
- Capful of Dry Vermouth
- A Dick Cheney splash of cocktail onion juice
- Recalcitrant squeeze of half a lime
- A sizeable PLOMP or three of Mr.and Mrs. T's Bold and Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, which is fabulous
- 10 cocktail onions (hey, Da-da LIKES cocktail onions).

Into a chilled pint glass half-full of ice, add vermouth and gin and onion juice and lime, along with the lime itself. Stir. STIR LIKE THE WIND. Top with bloody mary mix, stir again, and taste. Cowboy up and sip some off the top if you need more mix -- or pour it into a bigger glass like Da-da. Drop onions into a large, pre-chilled martini glass and whomp in the mixture. Don't be gentle. Yields about two martini-glasses' worth. Garnish with MORE of the largest Monsanto cocktail onions you can find and DRINK, DRINK LIKE THE WIND. For those of you who don't drink, this is also excellent sans alcohol, though drop in some celery seed and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. (Snap-E-Tom and Clamato are first-rate tomato juice substitutes.)

NOTE: Blood of the Vanquished is THE drink for post-Rapture parties. Damn. (So to speak.)

Oops. Da-da meant the REAL Rapture, not that earlier fake one. Those were wires, dude.
