The Celebratory Purple Cow - Recipe of the Week

This cow looks like she did alittle too much celebrating last night. Please try not to do the same, whether you're drowning your sorrows and think this country's headed down the blankety-blank or your joy is at its zenith and Utopia is right around the bend. Either way, enjoy.

Kids love this drink. It turns their tongue's purple and gives them a violet mustache. But you must recite this poem while drinking it:

I NEVER saw a Purple Cow
I never hope to See One
But I can Tell you, Anyhow
I'd rather See than Be One.
