There is a glitch in the matrix. We go to a boarding school in a fake New England village oasis in the Midwest. Each year after the seniors graduate, they are replaced by freshman doppelgängers. There is no justice. There is no commencement speaker for the Class of 2020. Yet still, we go through the motions, day in and day out, hoping that maybe one day, Moxie culture will die and a Peirce Date will bring us eternal love. That’s why this weekend, The Thrill is prescribing the antidote to all your woes, a temporary escape from The Simulation.

Weekend Drink: It Might Be A Weekday But It’s Election Night and Life Is Over

Well. Here we are. We knew we’d get here someday. It’s election day, and in a few short hours we will finally know who the next leader of the free world is. Since this is such a fun-loving carefree day for everyone, we at The Thrill thought we’d spice things up a bit with a festive Election Day themed drink! It’s super simple and easy to make, so you won’t be taken away from your play by play of the electoral college for even a second!


  1. the highest proof alcohol you can find. Doesn’t matter what kind. 120 proof and over is preferable but I’ve been informed there are “legal limits” or “lethal amounts” or something so that might be hard to find.
  2. Salty, salty tears from a human tear duct. If you can’t produce your own, store bought is fine.

But comps happened and I forgot about this until today. So, let’s throw a bunch of Halloween-themed shit together and call it a cocktail, ok? Ok. Co-credit goes to Sam Larson ’17 for offering some of the more… unusual ingredients.

  • MOONshine

  • clowns!
  • bones or something idk Continue reading
