The Mummy – What’s the significance of drinking “The Mummy” today? I’m not quiet sure… “the book” mentions something about King Tut but in my 12 seconds of in-depth, independent research on Wikipedia I couldn’t find anything to corroborate this story. So instead of drinking to the curse of a mummy I decided to dedicate this drink to a different curse… the curse of the Bambino! That’s right, on this day in 1920 the Boston Red Sox, the most successful baseball team at the time, sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees (insert “Yankees Suck” chant here) that began an 86 year curse that left Boston without another World Series win and the Yankees with more than I care to think about… Fortunately in 2004, good finally triumphed over evil in a historic Sox win over the Yankees after being down 0-3 in a best of seven game ALC series on their way to winning the World Series! What has any of this to do with drinking “The Mummy?” I got no idea…
How to wrap your grubby paws around a Mummy of your own:
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz Triple Sec (or any orange flavored liqueur)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- club soda*
*I’m not a fan of club soda so I recommend Sprite or
add Mountain Dew to make it a MUMMY EXTREME!
Drink Tip: If you’re gonna embalm yourself with one of these… Sprite, 7-UP, or a little Mountain Dew makes this drink worth dying for!
