Q: I am a bartender in Albany, NY and I am into a well knit community of bartenders and bartending historians. There was a book that came out a few years ago called “New Classic Cocktails” by Gary Regan. In the book he mentioned a cocktail with a base spirit of NyQuil. But the rest of the cocktail ingredients were unknown. To my surprise a coworker mentioned a cocktail that was featured some time ago in National Lampoon called the Fuzzy Gator. It consisted of Vodka and NyQuil. After much research on the internet I have come up virtually empty. Can you shed some light on this? anything sound familiar? Or possibly could you lead me in the right direction?
A: According to Pete, it was in a comic called “Popular Drunk Hunting” in the June 1980 (Fresh Air) issue. More info in the Comments link. (Thanks, Pete!)
