This week back in 1885, one-time hosiery salesman LaMarcus Adna Thompson patented the roller coaster. Hear about his invention’s rickety ride from coal country to Coney Island, and then get your thrills in liquid form:
The Thunderbolt, as thrown down by James Quigley of Peggy O’Neil’s, in the heart of Coney Island.
In a 8 oz glass with ice, add:
- 2 oz. orange-infused vodka
- 2 oz. cranberry juice
- A splash of Red Bull
Stir, shake, and rattle it all together, then ride it down and feel the rush. (Caution: Do not attempt BEFORE riding a coaster.)
