Those Texans got some straaaange sense of humor—and aren’t always too good at math. Here are a couple of alcoholic drinks served during the JFK assassination anniversaries that could go to your head.

CaptureA cocktail on sale November 22, 2013, on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, at the still-functioning Texas Theater, where Lee Harvey Oswald was captured back in 1963: The Patsy. Featuring Russian vodka and “Ruby juice.” Only in Texas!


Another fog-shrouded libation was available around the 49th anniversary, in 2012, at the Adolphus Hotel’s Rodeo Bar, just blocks from Dealey Plaza. The bar was advertising a drink special called “Death”, ingredients described as “½ rum, ½ vodka, ½ gin, ¼ triple sec.”

Like a lot of things that have gone down in Dallas, something just doesn’t add up.
