The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

This week back in 1928, a Missouri bakery set the bar for greatness… when it started selling the first pre-sliced bread in history. Listen to the tale, then propose a (ahem) toast with this original cocktail:

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

As determined by Jim McCullough, owner of the Wabash BBQ in Chillicothe, MO (across the road from the original sliced-bread bakery):

In any available barrel/pitcher/bucket, mix together:

  • A fifth of Stoli Vodka
  • A fifth of Stoli raspberry vodka
  • 6 Budweisers (A loaf of bread in every barrel)
  • 2 parts raspberry lemonade (frozen concentrate)
  • 1 part lemonade (frozen concentrate)

Stir with stick or hands. Divvy up the whole into individual servings (a la slices). Best sipped outside, with friends — it never gets stale.
