Happy Hour: Lucky Stiff Cocktail

Does anyone else remember the magazine Budget Living? Sadly it's now defunct, but I always looked forward to each new issue.

I became absorbed with the issue and was surprised when I came across a really great looking drink recipe. Surprised because I'm sure I must have read it before, and yet it seemed totally new to me.
