The New Yorker features a selection of recession-friendly cocktail recipes that are more allegorical than drinkable. Quench your financial woes with a Broke & Tan, Blackberry Sling or Trickle-down Punch. But The Boston Globe isn't being so coy with its timely tipple story. Apparently, Bonfire, a local bar, is poking fun at New York's fallen Yankees with the A-Roid: a shot of El Mejor tequila, neat, with a spicy "performance-enhancing" tomato juice chaser. It's part of the seasonal Red Sox menu, naturally.
