My friends Brooks and Ann have invited me to a party at their house in New Orleans in early November. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend, which is a complete let-down, as the theme of the party is to create a cocktail made with Tang — yes, the powdered breakfast drink that we older folks had back in the 70s. You know, the astronauts’ drink (a bit of trivia: the inventor of Tang, William Mitchell, also invented Pop Rocks and Cool Whip).
So, even though I’m not going, I’m planning on entering at least one cocktail in this competition, and I need help. Send me your ideas for Tang-tails. And I’ve already come up with names galore for this: Harvey Wall-Tanger, the Orang-o-Tang, and the moonshine-based, Wang Dang Sweet MoonTang. Oh, and I can think of lots more!
