In the dodgy pubs in Brisbane's Valley in the 1970s and 80s, a White Lady was methylated spirit and ice, and a Black Lady was metho, ice and Coke. A dero's drink that avoided the alcohol tax, because the stuff isn't technically drinkable...
Hence the expression 'getting blind':(

Yours sound better...Sounds like you're enjoying the US of A, lucky bugger! :ok:

If I order a White Lady at a bar in Thailand or the Flipperines
I will end up with something completely different (and quite
booberous). :E

Not that too many are particularly happy about
being reordered over and over again in my case. :(

Quite simply, I hate gin, so such a cocktail would not get past my nose.
When I was 16 I worked as a temp. fetcher/filler/emptier for a production line of ladies. On Christmas eve they made me brain damaged with gin. Can't stand the smell of the stuff ever since. They put a little Tonic in, too, and I still hate that, too.

When I was a young student I had a brief fling with an older lady who used to down a bottle or two a day, so much so that the juniper flavour would soak through her skin. It made certain activities uniquely pleasant.
"Mad Mary" we called her, she'd had so much time off with "problems" that when I met her she was in the sixth year of a three year undergraduate course and hadn't completed the second year. Totally mind-raddled but good fun

Agreed Fliegs, it's awesome at the moment! :ok:

I recall a passenger carrying a four litre bottle of homemade 'gin' that had 'dilute with water by half' hand written on the label.

The pax estimated it to be about 90% alcohol, so the airline classified it as DG and wouldn't uplift it. When she took the lid off in an attempt to show that it was perfectly safe a great waft of juniper scented fumes blew out, engulfing people across the whole area. I was several metres away and it was still nostril singeing :eek:.

She was quite good tempered about it and left it behind (probably had vats full back in the hills), and said anyone who wanted it was welcome, but after an eye watering sniff even the baggage handlers wouldn't take it. :yuk:

It made certain activities uniquely unpleasant.

(So I'm told.)

In the day's before drugs, one would get ones kick with a "Jack and a black"

(Jack Daniels and a Black Russian.)

Shouldn't drink that be known as a pigmentally challenged lady? :p
