So what does a Laurel drink?

No, not the person -- the award itself.

Today is the 21st anniversary of my induction into the Order. Thinking about that kind of makes my head hurt, in a "*man*, I've been playing this game for a long time" kind of way. Other birthdays are rounder, but the concept that my Laurel is now an adult is just kind of weird.

But it does lead to an on-and-off conversation that Kate and I have had in recent months: so what *does* a Laurel drink, now that it's legal? I'm having trouble coming up with a decent-sounding cocktail that involves bay leaves. (Which would, I suppose, be subversively cannibalistic.) Or would it be something painfully period, in a Mistress Laurel Seamchecker kind of way? (Do folks nowadays even remember the Seamchecker plays?)

Suggestions welcomed...
