Adios, Motherfucker

It takes a special kind of person to order an Adios, Motherfucker. Not an AMF or an Adios, Mother F’er, as the drink is called in more squeamish circles. You can’t soften the six-syllable force of a fully articulated Adios, Motherfucker. Yes, it’s bold and boozy. Yes, it’s basically a bluer, sweeter version of a Long Island Iced Tea thanks to a slug of blue curaçao. But what makes an Adios, Motherfucker a true Adios, Motherfucker is the motherfucker who mixes it: cool, confident, uninhibited. That motherfucker can be you.
