Concerning Windex and a new cocktail

I was cleaning the bathroom mirrors here at work. I use water now
that the windex has been depleted. As I swiped the water across the
glass surface and rubbed it spotless, I considered the claim of windex
being streak free. Streak free, as opposed to what? The water I use
is streak free too. It must be an entirely psycological ploy to get
folks to buy windex. Water works great. It is generally better than
anything we have made to try to replace it with, especially soft
drinks. But that's another discussion for another day.

My new cocktail is the result of the right stuff lying around at work
and my creative desire to try mixing them together. It has no
alcoholic ingredients yet.

It has been named by my coworker and good friend Nick. Here is the

Crockett and Tubbs drink

1. Procure the following items
-A fresh tangerine from Miami, Florida.
-A can of Mountain Dew.
-A clear drinking vessel. This is important, as the drink has high
aesthetic value.
-Some good clean ice.

2. Carefully peel the tangerine.

3. Place the ice in the glass. The ice should fill about 3/4 of the
glass. Hold the glass at a 45 degree angle and pour the Mountain Dew
through the ice. Fill to about 1 inch below the rim.

4. Split the tangerine into 4 or 5 pieces. Take one of these pieces
and squeeze it carefully into the drink. Then drop the piece into the
drink. Repeat as desired.

Enjoy your Crockett and Tubbs. Hopefully it will help protect your
sanity. I will experiment with liquors and see what goes well with
the drink.
