Well, the clock is rapidly ticking down… no, not just to Christmas, but to the end of the world! That is, if you believe that the end of the 5125-year Mayan Calendar cycle signals the end of the world.
Everyone from Mayan scholars to NASA have assured folks that we’re not on-course to collide with any rogue planets. And there’s not really anything in Mayan history or lore that foretells of the world’s destruction at the end of this cycle, but there are still a good number of people battening down the hatches in preparation for this potentially impending Apocalypse.
Whether the end of the Great Cycle signifies something cataclysmic or not, I think it calls for a cocktail! After all, if it doesn’t happen, we get to celebrate. And if it does, we’ll probably need a sip of something fortifying anyway!
For the end of the world as we know it, shake up an I Feel Fine. Made with reposado tequila, earthy sage and honey syrup (in homage to the traditional Mayan honey liqueur), this cocktail is sure to keep you in bright spirits. Cheers! – Kathy
