Hair of the Dog

  1. Jan 1, 2005 #1
    After that party last night I think the only chance I have of getting rid of this hangover is to drink a Hairy Tribdog.
    The party last night was crazy! We were drinking Kamakazi, Colorado Coolaid, and Peach Smoothies. Now each bottle of liquor and mixer is almost empty, there is only enough for one drink. I'm going to make myself a Hairy Tribdog, but don't need to use all of the bottles. If you can find a splash of sweet and sour you can have an Alabama Slammer by mixing what is left after I make my Hairy Tribdog.
    What is in a Hairy Tribdog?

    (From Wikipedia)
    In a Kamikaze: 1 measure Vodka, 1 measure Triple Sec or Cointreau, 1 measure lime juice

    (From www.webtender.com) In an Alabama Slammer: 2 parts Southern Comfort
    1 part Amaretto
    1 part Sloe gin
    Orange juice to taste

    In a Colorado Coolaid:
    1 oz Vodka
    1 oz Southern Comfort
    1/2 oz Sloe gin
    1 oz Amaretto
    1 oz Orange juice
    2 oz Cranberry juice
    1 splash 7-Up

    (From www.cooks.com[/URL])
    In a peach smoothie:
    1 c. sliced fresh or thawed peaches
    1 c. plain yogurt
    1 c. skim milk
    1 tbsp. honey
    (this is not alcoholic)

    All my drinks are alcoholic

    Then how about YOU give the ingredients of the peach smoothie. I googled it and did not notice any results which were alcoholic.

    One drink per bottle or one drink total? If it's one drink total then the answer is "nothing is in a hairy tribdog."

    try drinksmixer.com
    google can't do everything, if it could this would be a google teaser, not a brain teaser.

    Is it one drink per bottle or one drink total? Or did you mean "two drinks total"?

    If you meant two or more drinks total then you just find the ingredients of the drinks besides the Slammer and the Tribdog, subtract from that list the ingredients of the Slammer (except for the "splash of sweet and sour" which you ignore) and what you have left are the minimum ingredients of the Tribdog. The tribdog can contain those minimum ingredients, or those minimum ingredients plus any combination of the ingredients in a Slammer (except the "splash of sweet and sour," assuming the splash of sweet and sour was not an ingredient of the party drinks). It can contain more than the minimum since you don't necessarily use up each bottle that you use when you make the Tribdog.

    If you want specific ingredients for the drinks then you should list them yourself as part of the problem. Not all drinks that have the same name are the same drink.

    So your question can have many answers.

    An alternative trick answer is, "the Hairy Tribdog can contain anything so long as it uses up whatever splashes of sweet and sour there happen to be hanging around (so afterwards you can't find a splash of sweet and sour)" This makes the implication "if you can find a splash of sweet and sour then you can make an Alabama Slammer" true (an implication with a false antecedent is always formally true).
