Trollied Tuesday: punching above your weight

After last week's hot booze recipe, here's a cold punch that should solve all ills.

Do we by any chance know a beverage called May Queen? It's full name is "Tomorrow'll be of all the year the maddest, merriest day, for I'm to be Queen of the May, mother, I'm to be Queen of the May." A clumsy title, generally shortened for purposes of ordinary conversation. Its foundation is any good, dry champagne, to which is added liqueur brandy, armagnac, kummel, yellow chartreuse and old stout to taste. It is a good many years since I tried it myself, but I can thoroughly recommend it to alleviate the deepest despondency.
