Scoop! of Booze: New Cocktail Honors Alameda Daily Noose and Me

A local drinking establishment recently joined the swelling ranks of Alamedans lining up to bestow honors on the Alameda Daily Noose and me. On November 16 the so-called Tiki Lounge, which we believe is known as "Prohibited Peninsula," added a cocktail called the Journalist to its menu.

Like its namesake, this drink is classy, strong, and virile. It combines all the sourness of lemon juice and the dry wit of vermouth, with a healthy dash of bitters thrown in for good measure. It is served straight up, just like our news, scoops, and investigative reports. The cocktail is garnished with laurel leaves, which we modestly removed and placed upon our brows before snapping the exclusive Alameda Daily Noose photo above. We fully expect that this new drink will prove as popular as our reportage, retaining a place of honor on the menu for years to come.
