Cocktail of the Week: A Tear and a Smile

Makes1 drink
  • A tear to unite me with those of broken heart;
  • A smile to be a sign of my joy in existence.

Fred & Friends designs and manufactures quirky, clever, often hysterical, and occasionally tasteless products for home, office, and spaceship. No excuse is needed to pour a gin and tonic, unquestionably one of the most perfect libations on any planet, but if for some reason you require one: It was 97 years ago (April 14, 1912) that the RMS Titanic, on its maiden voyage, struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic; it sank less than three hours later. In honor of the more than 1,500 people who perished, fill a glass with Gin & Titonic ships and icebergs, add 2 ounces of gin, 5 ounces of tonic water (Fever Tree or Q Tonic if possible), and a squeeze of lime.
