Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s “Carlos Danger” sexting sobriquet already has sparked a slew of jokes and even a name generator where users can come up with similar monikers for themselves.
Now, a bistro in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn has decided to honor Weiner’s alias with a “dangerous” libation.
“We were messing around with cocktails. We had some mezcal laying around, so we designed a mescal cocktail. It’s fruity, it’s juicy, it’s kind of dangerous,” said Richard Murphy, manager of Buttermilk Channel at 524 Court St. in Brooklyn. “This whole thing went down and (bar owner) Doug was like, ‘Let’s call it the Carlos Danger.’ And the name has stuck; it’s been a hit,” he said. “No offense to Anthony Weiner – I’m voting for him.”
