Not Just in Panama Anymore

Some time ago, your correspondents published a dispatch lamenting that we had fallen behind lowly Panama in providing consumers convenient pre-mixed alcoholic beverages. Well, the news only gets worse here. Not only does tiny Latvia also have a similar lead in pre-mixed beverage technology, they are doing so with our bourbon. This cannot stand.

In fact, your correspondent should concede that it has been years since we spent much time perusing a liquor store in the United States other than those way over-priced ones on Connecticut Avenue in DC, which probably don't carry Beam-and-Cola-in-a-can and if they did it is probably $5 a can. Perhaps the more down-to-earth liquor stores of our great nation are working this fertile terrain.
