"Duck and Cover" is the perfect drink for the nuclear holocaust! Just make sure you stocked up the bomb shelter's bar well in advance, as these things usually happen without much notice. (See Hiroshima.) It's a strong, kickass cocktail, with three kinds of vodka, and other cool stuff like Chartreuse and Hpnotiq (which looks and tastes like it's radioactive), with a lingering bitterness, but in a good way, as it makes you want another. (And another.) And although you very well might envy the dead, it's much better to ponder the half-life of Plutonium-239 being 24,000 years with a drink like this in hand. And of course "the proportion of casualties caused by radioactivity is quite low, as most people are either blown to pieces or burnt to death!"*
