Mental Floss is an amazing YouTube channel that delivers regular explanations of, well, all kinds of subjects.
Its latest topic of conversation is alcoholic drinks and cocktails, with explanations of where 26 of these came from and how they got their names.
The host John Green is a walking repository of information, and in this video he reveals the origins of several alcoholic drinks and cocktails. Some are common knowledge, others will likely be new to you.
Sandwiched in between the facts Green also attempts to make some of the drinks he is exploring, often with hilarious results. If he was my barman for the night I’m not sure how long I’d go before vomiting.
