Friggatriskaidekaphobia

Oh yeah, it’s about to get real real in here.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom “Friday” is named and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen), or paraskevidekatriaphobia[1][2] a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning “Friday”), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning “thirteen”) attached tophobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning “fear”). The latter word was derived in 1911[citation needed] and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.[3]

I hope my dears that none of you have fallen privy to such crazy superstitions as believing in Friday the 13th. But if you have, or take pleasure in the mockery of such tomfoolery than you may enjoy the following.

How to prepare it: Add the Smithwick’s Ale to a pint glass, and then add the Guinness by pouring it over the back of a spoon.

Recipe

This cocktail is a piece of cake – just mix all of the ingredients together and serve!  Very festive for the holidays.

Start by making a simple syrup: Bring 1/2 cup water and sugar to boil in small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes. Cool syrup completely.

The original recipe also calls for Pomegranate seeds, but honestly, I didn’t see a need to get all “foofy” with this.  Also, I didn’t really see what they would add other than increased cost.

Combine ingredients and add enough simple syrup to sweeten the drink to your liking.

Serve & Enjoy!

Happy New Years!
