The Aunt Roberta is probably the strongest cocktail in the world. It doesn’t use any juice or mixers (i.e. non-alcoholic ingredients) to dilute the concoction; it contains only alcohol ingredients.
Consuming the beverage is suitable during times you want to:
- Remove the enamel from your teeth.
- Go blind.
- Shorten your life by a few years.
History of the Aunt Roberta cocktail
The cocktail was invented in the late 1800’s by an Alabama woman known today as Aunt Roberta. Little is known about her, except that she was the mulatto daughter of a slave owner.
Roberta escaped from an abusive home and alcoholic father at age 11. Early on, she made her living picking cotton and drifted for much of her early life. She worked as a prostitute before and moving on to bootleg liquor, where she used to sell this beverage to her customers.
