Drinks for Two #6: Sleeping Up Appearances

The night's been wild and unforgettable. You, being your classy self, have managed to keep your date enthralled for hours on end. Suddenly, the words that, without exception, bring a tear to any man's eyes resonate through the thick bar air: "last call" It's time to order your final drink before you get the hell out.
You'll have a:

Bloody Mary/Caesar (extra spicy)

1 1/4 oz. Vodka
Dash salt
Dash pepper
Dash worchestershire
Few dashes tobasco
Dash celery salt
Fill with tomato/clamato juice
(Note: All "dash" ingredients are by taste. 100's of ratios exist)

Read my article on hangovers to learn why this is the perfect final drink.

She'll have a:

Harvey Wallbanger

1 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Galliano
Fill orange juice

The more savvy drinkers will quickly realize that this is a screwdriver with galliano (vanilla liqueur). Again, check the hangover post for why OJ and vodka are good. The galliano adds a new twist she might not have tried all while keeping her buzzed for the afterparty (of two) to come.
