Slam dunk spirits

Booze inside booze, nothing but net

by

In honour of the Premier Basketball League’s All-Star weekend at the Metro Centre, here are some slam dunk beverages---one kind of booze, inside another kind of booze, for a perfect combo of grace and taste. Nothing but net.
PBL All-Star weekend, May 1-2, Halifax Metro Centre, Brunswick at Duke Streets, $20/$15 ($25 weekend pass), 451-1221, ticketatlantic.com

Joker’s
Picnicface’s Evany Rosen has begun a new game during the troupe’s Sunday shows in which she employs the bartender’s iPhone to help select a drink that she consumes in one swoop onstage. It’s on special for the remainder of the night. Last week was The Lunch Box---“Surprisingly delicious!” Rosen announced to a skeptical crowd---which is half orange juice, half light beer and a shot of amaretto. 5680 Spring Garden Road, 421-5653

The Bitter End
For inventive, awesomely named drinking options it’s hard to beat this martini institution. In honour of our hometown Rainmen we suggest the Thunderclap, a three-point concoction of gin, whiskey and brandy. Don’t challenge anyone to a game of Horse after a couple of these. 1572 Argyle Street, 425-3039

Club 1668
One of the most popular drink-in-drinks---whether it’s for the energy or the flavour---is the Jägerbomb, a shot of sweet Jägermeister liqueur dropped into a glass of even sweeter Red Bull. Raise a few at the All-Star Weekend afterparty at Club 1668, with music by Evolution Sound. 1668 Lower Water Street, 209-4590
