Hurricane Irene Survival 101

When you wake up in the morning, have no electricity, but plenty of bottled water, you won't be making coffee because your coffee maker is electric. Survival tip 101: You have water, you have whiskey sour mix in packets somewhere in your house, every household has tequila and triple sec, and your ice is going to melt if you don't use it up. Throw those items together in your coffee pot, shake well, and serve in salted glass. If you happen to own a Margarator (like I do, being a survivalist) they come with a car adaptor, so you can make frozen margaritas! You'll never go back to coffee.

Ok, now about those D batteries. Most modern flashlights do not use D batteries. There are other "appliances", mostly found in the bedroom, that DO still use D batteries. I'm thinking there was a big run on D batteries, particularly for those wives whose husbands work for National Grid. Just saying...Probably not going to be a big baby boom from this hurricane. Just saying...

Hurricane Morning Recipe
2 cups tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
2 packets whiskey sour mix
garnish with water
shake over ice, before it melts
serve in your favorite coffee mug

Tip number 102: What to do with all of those leftover D batteries after consuming that much tequila? See paragraph 2.
