Weekend Drink: The Andre the Giant

To all of our of-age readers… 

This weekend’s drink was inspired by professional French wrestler André René Roussimoff, better known as Andre the Giant or Fezzik, the rhyming giant of Princess Bride. In addition to being an entertainer, Mr. Roussimoff was also a talented drinker. Some claim that it would take him a barrel of beer to get drunk. (Ed. I have a hunch that his large stature was a contributing factor: Andre the Giant stood at over seven feet tall and weighed close to 450 pounds.)

The Andre:

  • Procure a barrel.
  • Fill said barrel with beer.
  • Drink.*

*Do not attempt to finish the barrel by yourself.
