This deserves its own post.
What goes in a Thug Passion and will drinking one give me street cred?
Tom C replies:
A Thug Passion sounds like some not recommended combination of Cognac and grapefruit juice.
Meh, grapefruit juice--too many vitamins. Black people don't "do" antioxidants.
Seriously though, Thug Passion is the epitome of drank--Alize mixed with Congac--made famous by Tupac Shakur. I loved it in college on a Friday--must of lost half my freelance checks to the stuff. Those were the days when I was still amazed that they actually paid people to write. Later I graduated to Jack and Coke. Now I'm straight Macallan. Soon there will be cigars. Then I'll write an article about how I'm not really black anymore.
UPDATE: Commenter Bruce questions my knowledge of Thug Passion. In all seriousness, I googled around. Apparently there is some debate about this. Fascinating. Apparently there are two versions. One features Alize and Henny, the other Alize and champagne. Hmm, somehow I think both will leave you feeling the same way in the morning.
