A publicity hungry mixologist (aka bar tender) has created an absinthe cocktail referencing the "Occupy Wall Street" affair:

Angst on Wall Street
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce Absinthe
1/2 ounce cucumber water*
Splash lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
2 cherry tomatoes
Black pepper and sea salt

Note the use of vodka! The blurb goes on about throwing tomatoes (or something like that.) Try it whilst singing L'Internationale or relaxing at home with Terry Eagleton.

Cucumber water sounds like a Victorian medicament! (Two tablespoons of cucumber water for colic.) Aside from that it's a Bloody Mary.

No "War - Cester - Shire" sauce though.

Then raise the green libation high!
Within her thrall we live and die,
Though masses sup their beer
We'll keep La Fee Verte flying here.

Shall we take it from the header that you dislike "Occupy Wall Street", LFV? I read somewhere that a "Bloody Cow" is a Bloody Mary with beef consume - a kind of pick me up from the 20s/30s.

I dislike simple minded reactions to complex problems, Nick. The stock market is nothing to do with those bundled up mortgage based derivatives that gave everyone a cold.

When American sneezes, Europe catch a cold...and England erects a cordon sanitaire.....peut-Ítre?

Get over to the Sheraton in Denver for some absinthe cocktails, they is a havin' a party

"In honor of the upcoming Yves St. Laurent exhibit at the Denver Art Museum....blah blah blah...Absinthe, a distilled, highly alcoholic, anice flavored spirit made from flowers, leaves and other herbs, was made popular by the bohemians in late 19th and early 20th century Paris. The spirit, which has a natural green color, is often referred to as the "green fairy" for the pale green mist that rises when cold water is poured through a special spoon over a sugar cube into the absinthe.

I want some green mist with my anice! Why can't I have some green mist as well!
