Turkey cocktail

22 Dec

F. Scott Fitzgerald, full-time drunk and occasional writer, once came up with this ingenious solution to the eternal conundrum of what to do with all that leftover bird at Christmas:

Turkey Cocktail: To one large turkey add one gallon of vermouth and a demijohn of angostura bitters. Shake.

The Notebooks of F. Scott Fitzgerald, ed. by Matthew J. Buccoli (New York: Harcourt Brace, 1978), p. 183.
