The Blinker

Have you ever had that drink that made you blink? This one will, but not because its bad – just the opposite, It’s smooth, and refreshing.  The perfect drink after a hard day at the office, or just because you work for the devil – like I did at one time! The drink first appeared in Patrick Gavin Duffy’s, The Official Mixer’s Manual (1934).  Blinker was another name for blinder, the kind used on a horse to keep it’s eye’s on the road.
