Public Health Ad

And this is why I prefer my Old Fashioneds without garnish.

(And if anyone can translate this, I’d be curious to know what it says. I suspect it is a Public Health announcement about not drinking when preggers, but I’m probably being optimistic.)

  1. I prefer those big olives stuffed with a piece of garlic, but everyone is different.


  2. Maraschino babies are new to me; I don’t think I approve…

    You’re right. Loosely:

    “When momma drinks baby drinks.

    Boozing while knocked-up & while nursing can endanger the physical & mental development of babby.”


  4. A.J. says:


    “alcohol during pregnancy and breast-feeding can damage the physical and mental development of the child”


  5. it’s not “babies like to party, too”?

    I suspect that is a Negroni, not an Old Fashioned.

      Satrap5567 –

      I loves me some Negroni, but that is not a Negroni.

      Negroni is only served up and the classic garnish is an orange twist not a wheel. Also, the color is just off for a Negroni, but depending upon the vermouth, I suppose it is possible…

      I still think it is an Old Fashioned.
