*Disclosure: The statement above is tongue and cheek and is not intended to imply that this or any other alcoholic beverage will actually bestow upon you kung fu powers. Do not attempt to run across rooftops at a 45-degree angle on your tiptoes after consuming this or any other beverage, alcoholic or otherwise. You should also not attempt any of the following:  wielding a Samurai sword or replica thereof; running down the narrow bannister of a staircase, also on your tiptoes; jumping from treetop to treetop; jumping at all; plunging your fist into the chest of your archenemy and pulling out his beating heart; plunging your fist into anything but a couch cushion; kicking opponents on either side of you while doing a Russian split; kicking anything; somersaulting, back flipping or any other type of acrobatics, gymnastics or calesthenics; mouthing off to anyone who goes by Master; karate chopping plywood; karate chopping anything.

What does that leave you ask? Well, pour another drink and pop this on:

    When I was young, or so long ago, Grasshopper Pie was the trend for a summer dessert. Alcohol but oh too sweet.
