We drink cocktails ... well we did once. I made them. They were supposed to be equal parts tequila and pineapple juice with a splash of freshly squeezed lime but when I taste tested them they were very strong so I double the pineapple juice. Dad started complaining about me serving up baptist cocktails ... until they got about a third of the way through the drink and the tequila started to take effect. It did give me a chance to tell a joke:

There are three truths in life:
Jewish people don't recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
Protestants don't recognize the Pope as the leader
of the Christian faith.
and Baptists don't recognize each other in the bottle shop.

... it got a laugh ... probably partly due to the fact that we were nearing the bottom of our glasses.
