There's a new drink called "the Romney"

It's a mix of Goldschlager, sour grapes and a whole lot of bitters.

2. You scared me for a second . . .

I thought you meant a drink based on Rachel Maddow's definition of 'to Romney' . . .

From Huff Post on January 13, 2012:

"She noted that there are now anti-Romney websites purporting to be from dogs popping up all over the place, and that the new verb "to Romney" (meaning "to defecate in terror") is making its way into the lexicon."

5. Actually, it should be named the Rumney and

made with Capt. Morgan, the rum named after a pirate, who today would probably be a vulture capitalist.

Wel, at least Capt Morgen was honest - and also far more smarter than Romney ever was.. He started as a pirate - and was one of the best pirates out there, he even mustered a small army to plunder spanish city's for their gold and silver. He was a "genious" to organize big expeditions with more than ten sailships (not small types, the real big ones) where a whole army was organized over longer time.. He was as best as the UK Navy at a time.. And at his "capital" he made the City one of the best and maybe also biggest city's in the Caribbean.. I believe the town was called Port Royal in fact... After a few years after the mans death, most of the city was devastate by an earth shake and a flood, who more or less wiped out the City... But archeologies have more or less rebuild the town, as it was in its heyday 400 year later on... It was a big city for its time, bustling with activity from daybreak to dawn - and more or less also true the nights...

He survived many plots to kill him - and even survived a court in UK who (England) who wanted him for crimes against the british crown - and instead of ending in a gallows, he was given freedom, a title, and the Governor of Jamaica - where he ruled as a represent ant for the british crown - and is one of the few pirates from his age, who died in his bed, as a old man... Most pirates ended their life rather violent... Or in a gallow...

13. Oh, if it insults Capt. Morgan that much, make it with something else.

I'm sure there is a suitable rum out there to fit the jerk. I don't drink rum myself and my bar tending days are far behind me. How about Parrot Bay? Reminds one of the pirate without mentioning one.

I'm not sure if it insult the old Capt Morgan that much.. He could care less as he have been dead for more than 400 year

Maybe Parrot Bay - it sounds pirate look a like, without insulting a pirate

10. And Republican consumers think it's delicious

even though the flavor varies from one sip to the next and tastes completely different depending on where and when they drink it. If they drink enough of it, they wind up wandering through the neighborhoods of the exceedingly well-to-do and throwing giant handfuls of cash at people who don't need it. It also renders them incapable of following polls or understanding how arithmetic actually works.

how exactly they were going to collect the bull excrement that should be the main ingredient. (Does Absolut come in that flavor?)

a single shot (I like whiskey) followed by a splash of water. I feel very patriotic when I have one.

24. You've got it all wrong

On the menu, the Romney contains eleven of the finest, most expensive liquors swirled together with three different fruit juices, then served over ice with a light sprinkle of gold flakes.

The Romney you are served is a tall glass of lukewarm skim milk with a drop of vanilla extract
