Now that's a mixed drink. I quote Sketches of Strain because Dispatches from Tanganyika does not have direct links to entries. The following is Poppy's recipe for, and sorry excuse for avoiding, Mind Erasers.
1 shot of Kahlua
Pour over ice. Fill cup with soda. Put straw in cup. Drink in one long gulp. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Lie down on the sidewalk in front of your French Quarter apartment. Cackle wildly while your long-suffering husband tries to make you go inside. Shriek so loudly that a biker dude riding a Harley up the street does a U-turn and comes back to see who is being killed. When biker dude says, "Little lady, yew wanna go for a ride on my Harley?", say "YEAH!!!" Get mad at your husband when he prevents you from doing this. Finally let him get you inside. At the top of the stairs, puke copiously and brownly all over the landing and your new pale pink dress. Suffer a 3-day hangover. Ten full years later, still come close to puking any time somebody says the word "Kahlua" within your hearing.
