Mersenne Twister [Feb. 26th, 2005|12:12 pm]
[Current Mood |pseudorandom]
[Current Music |iTunes is on "Shuffle" - get it?]

It struck me this morning that Mersenne Twister would be a great name for a mixed drink. Does anyone know if someone's already come up with one? If not, we should try. It just has a cool ring to it in a geeky sort of way. I'm not sure what it should contain, but here are some ideas:

1. It should include something French (or something that's associated with the French), in honor of Mersenne himself.
2. It should include something Japanese, in honor of the Mersenne Twister authors, Matsumoto and Nishimura.
3. The proportions of two ingredients should be the ratio of two Mersenne primes, like 7:3. (Realistically, this could simply be two ingredients in a 2:1 ratio with an extra drop of the former.)
4. The mixing instructions should include some element of randomness, since Mersenne Twister is an algorithm for producing (pseudo)random numbers.

Suggestions are welcome. I would prefer something that actually tastes good, if that's possible given the constraints I suggested!

Cointreau and Sake was the first thing that came to mind... webtender reveals the Purple Winde (5:1 sake:cointreau)

Champagne is decidedly french.
Maybe a ginger/Champagne combination.

Has anyone ever told you that you're a geek!? :D

I'll think about this drink problem, I have some ideas.
If I figure it out, I'll scribble it in the margins of a drink book. :)

Unfortunately I don't know French drinks off the top of my head, but you could probably find something that would go with Midori (green melon flavor) and be tasty...

Ooo, midori. How about midori and white wine, like a kir?
