menu revised and a disclaimer

Greeting and salutations,

This is the (slightly) revised drink menu for Le Mixeur Deux. If you are reading this and wondering why the drinks are grouped by things named "Benedictine" or "Chartreuse," see the earlier post entitled "Medicinal Herbs and Spirits...A Happy Mix."

On a side note, I have recently been told by Rich, via Lela, that none of the French language used in Le Mixeur Deux's invitation "makes any sense." I can assure you, dear Mixers, that this is all by design, and meant to reflect Le Mixeur's homespun, DYI, grassroots ideology. You may as well all know now, that Le Mixeur is in fact French for "the mixer," but it actually refers to the kitchen utensil, not a Mixer in the sense of a social event. This is precisely the sort of subversive humor one must appreciate in order to appreciate Le Mixeur.

Enjoy the drink menu.
