Dire Straits Cocktail

As you read the title of this post your brain will probably immediately wonder into one of two directions…

If you tend to focus on the positive, you will (if you are old enough) I imagine be instantly be reminded of the Dire Straits single “Money for Nothing/Chicks for Free”. Hello? Where is the negative in that, right?

However, if you tend to focus on the negative this first thing that will come to mind, will probably be hard times. For after all, the definition of “Dire Straits” happens to be, a state of extreme distress.

So, if your mind immediately wandered towards the negative side of things, please pardon my “Debby Downer” title and let’s focus on the positive; a sprit lifting cocktail. Thanks to… well, the Brandy, the coffee liqueur, and of course the Damiana, which I’ve heard is actually considered an aphrodisiac.

So there you go, Happy Friday. CHEERS!
