Instructions

Legend has it that the Bone Crusher (a close cousin of the Baltimore Zoo and the Long Island Iced Tea) was first concocted by Tom Baron at a T.G.I. Friday’s in Washington D.C. just blocks from the White House in the early 90’s. it’s popularity is believed to come from the usage of Champagne or lack thereof which for many drinkers in their early to mid 20’s perceived as a classy drink that down right tasted good. Although that T.G.I. Friday’s is no longer there (you can find Tom Baron bartending @ Harry’s on E street between 11th and 12th streets NW across from the ESPN Zone), the Bone Crusher is still a favorite for most inner-city socialites throughout the Metropolitan area and can be found in any Restaurant/Bar in and outside the Capital Beltway. Combine all ingredients (except Champagne) in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into a tall glass, preferably a pint glass or large Brandy snifter with Ice, and float the champagne on top with a squeeze of Lemon. Serve.
