    LOL! Great idea!

    On another note – as a wog – how jealous am I that you were in Italy while I was home with a blanket screaming at the TV at 3 in the morning!!

    hehe, PinaI!

    Your still lucky, I was stuck in a hot horrible kitchen, and no one filmed it for me…….was upsetting to say the least.

    Pina, I got incredibly lucky on my tour. I was in London, England when they won, central Paris just outside the Moulin Rouge when France won, Florence when Italy won the Semis and Venice when Italy won the Grand Final. It made my tour all the more better!

    I have googled the Attitude Adjuster and found many variations on it. It seems to be based on the Long Island Iced Tea but the most interesting one I’ve found is the ‘Adios Motherf**ker.’ All contain the same four white spirits plus other drinks.

    Should be an interesting Saturday night for me!

    Hi Schoolhard.

    Was that drink green by any chance? I had something that sounds very similar in Cairns not too long ago and had the same experience.

    Mine had like, gin, vodka, Cointreau, midori, a couple of other things and red bull.

    Wow, that drink looks like it would set me up for the night. Major brain damage indeed. How much does it cost?

    I’ve got a photo of the recipe that was on a board at that bar it’s rum,gin,vodka., fanta and a hint of grenadine

    hehehe I actually was the bar tender there in 2007, and chances are I made your drink. Sorry about the late reply!

    An Attitude Adjuster, or AA, is made with a large pint glass, fill it with ice, free pour white rum, gin and vodka, then top it up with a Bacardi Breezer and add a splash of grenadine.

    Nine times out of ten, we saw punters feeling totally under control after the first one, but then losing their mind half way through the second.

    My god have I got some stories to tell my grandkids about that place one day! :P
