Vox wishes you a happy, boozy Georgetown Day

It’s the last Friday of April, the weatherman is predicting a gorgeous, sunny day with a high of 67, and we can all rest easy that Will and Kate are finally married. You know what that all means? That it’s the perfect day to get out of class, get outside, and celebrate the day every Hoya waits for before we all get smothered under the weight of finals—Georgetown Day.

And, whether you have to wait until Linear Algebra lets out at 11:30 a.m. or you got up at 4 to play Royal Wedding drinking games, you know what GU Day really means: Bouncy castles, wing-eating contests, and lots and lots of day drinking.

You may have noticed on the Voice‘s back page this week that we had some Georgetown-themed drink suggestions to keep yourself in the Hoya spirit this GU Day. We at Vox have augmented this list, adding some new favorites that we can all imbibe in honor of our fine University.


Dino-Jack and Coke: 2 oz. Jack Daniels Whiskey, 10 oz. Coca-Cola. Preferably not the kind that comes pre-mixed in a can.

Blue and Grey: 1 oz. Hpnotiq, 1 oz. Grey Goose vodka

Salmon Shorts: 2 oz. pink lemonade vodka, 10 oz. grapefruit juice, top with a slice of orange. A great breakfast drink.

See more after the jump!

Saxa on the Beach: 2/3 oz. peach schnapps, 1 1/3 oz. vodka, 1 1/3 oz. cranberry juice, 1 1/3 oz. orange juice. Top with a lime wedge. A little complicated, but very, very tasty.

White (Russian) Gravenor: 2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. coffee liqueur, 4 oz. cream. Top with alcoholic whipped cream, if you’re feeling really adventurous.

Irish Car Barn: 3/4 pint Guinness, 1/2 shot Bailey’s Irish Cream, 1/2 shot Jameson whiskey. Put the Bailey’s and the whiskey in a shot glass, count to three, drop it into the Guinness, and chug. Preferably do so surrpetitiously on the picnic table area outside of the Car Barn.

Carrollpolitan: 1 oz. vodka, 1/2 oz. Triple Sec, 1/2 oz. Rose’s lime juice, 1/2 oz. cranberry juice. Top with a slice of orange.

Leo’s Breakfast Cocktail: 2 oz. espresso-flavored vodka, 10 oz. coffee. Once again, topping with boozy whipped cream is encouraged.

Jack and Tonic: 1 oz. Bombay Sapphire gin, 5 oz. tonic water, top with a lime wedge

Foam Party: In honor of tomorrow night’s GU Nite festivities. 1 oz. coffee liqueur, 1 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream, 5 oz. steamed milk

Chocolate and Port-erfield: 5 oz. Port wine, 2 teaspoons chocolate syrup.

As always, Vox reminds you to please drink responsibly.
