Suburban Kamikaze Atlanta correspondent makes short work of dry laws
Frankly, we were a little suprised it took her so so long.
But there was never any question about the outcome. Was the South ready for a hard-drinking, apron-wearing Midwestern housewife whose political skills were honed in the bare-knuckled, backroom brouhaha of the PTA cupcake wars? No one ever is.
Our Atlanta correspondent hadn't even unpacked the last of her boxes when Georgia knuckled under to her prairie charm, overturning a ban on Sunday alcohol sales in county after county. The Georgia Scold Coalition was no match for her campaign: What Would Jesus Drink?
Personally, we feel this would be a little sweet for Jesus' taste. But we do not like to argue over religion.
3/4 oz Southern Comfort peach liqueur
1 oz peach scnhapps
4 oz orange juice
1 dash grenadine syrup
That drink sounds too sweet even for a Southerner. Shouldn't there be some punch behind that unassuming drawl? Like, maybe, just use straight up SoCo (get with the lingo), and follow the whole thing with a beer?

Too sweet for a Southerner? That is like saying too much cheese on top for a Midwesterner.

Ah HA! And now I know why, despite living in Atlanta from ages 2-17, I never considered myself a Southerner: I actually wasn't one. There is such a thing as too sweet for me. Until I turned 40 and had Old Lady Onset Lactose Intolerance, however, there was never any such thing as too much cheese on top.
