The Door-Buster 

(serves one feral mob)

This excellent drink requires a little bit of preparation the night before, but is well worth it, especially if you and your friends are planning to hit the stores early on Black Friday. 

*Please Note: Until you are at least 21 years of age, you are forbidden by law to read this and sample any of the bubbly delights in the Carbonarium.

You Will Need:

  • 1 oz. well-steeped sachet of Rishi Tea’s high-caffeine Black Limón tea
  • 2 oz. of your favorite bourbon whiskey
  • 1 oz. cranberry juice
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Three whole cranberries leftover from Thanksgiving dinner
  • One lemon spiral

Please note: The amounts of the ingredients are appropriate for one serving. Use mathematics to multiply the quantities of these ingredients times the number of guests in your feral mob.

How to Make It:

  1. Pour tea, whiskey, sugar and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker packed with ice, and shake briskly to the rhythm of the Buck Owen’s classic “Christmas Shopping” song.(Stop shaking just before the start of the second verse (:30) to create a sense of anticipation in your guests.)
  2. Pour the mixture into your Soda Sensei polycarbonate bottle.
  3. Carbonate!
  4. Pour over ice in a rocks glass.
  5. Garnish with the three leftover cranberries and lemon spiral.
  6. Carefully place finished drink on an elegant linen cocktail napkin.
  7. Escort your guests outside in the pre-dawn cold to stand in front of your own front door for six hours.
  8. When the clock strikes 6:00 a.m., desperately climb over each other to get in the door first and get to the cocktail before anyone else does—it’s part of the fun!
