PS: I went with the Skull & Bones cocktail from Tiki Bar TV: It was a little weird, but effective, if you get me.

Skull & Bones (from Episode 13)
In a blender mix:
1 peeled banana
1 cup milk
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz gold rum
2 oz sloe gin
1/2 oz 151 rum
dash of bitters

I vote for the London Fogcutter, because when you're playing poker, you want a drink that is easy to fix. No blender drinks, or anything with more than 5 ingredients!
Either that or Lemon Drops, because yummmm.

I will definitely try the L. Fogcutter, but I was a wee bit sick on lemon drops once--- can't go there again!

Everyone always has much more interesting things happen on their days than me! The Skull & Bones sounds like somethng very yummy! As long as it gets all the players except you tipsy, it's good!

Fred McMurray was the inspiration for Captain Marvel.

I completely understand about not wanting to revisit Lemon Drop Hell, I feel the same way about Kamikazes.

I think "All your chips are belong to Mimi" is a good poker name. Or Gimimi (gimme plus mimi). Yep, I'm a dork! Or how about "it doesn't matter what you call me, I am going to kick your ass, make you cry and take all your money!" Yeah, that is a good one!
