    Thought process

    I first imagined walking into a bar and saying "Gimme a ..." for each one to see which scanned best. Then because I'm sort of alergic to alcohol I tried the same with "light" on the end. Nothing really stood out. However in the same way that a Bloody Mary has a Virgin Mary I reckon the "17 Mile Skydive" could have a "17 Yard Skydive" so plumped for that.

    Make mine a pint of bitter, or a decent mild. Ta.

    Need more options

    You should put this out to the public and collect more possible names.

    My choice: "Space Junk." To be consumed while playing the DEVO song "Space Junk."

    I've already voted?

    Well, I suppose one of the several thousand people sharing this IP address might have. :(

    If you're accepting write-ins, my vote would have been for Insulin Override

      Bite your tongue.

      It's a perfectly harmless bit of fun. More to the point, it's one I rather enjoy. I am curious to see how many PARIS articles they can get out of this event. The more, the better!

    Number of votes

    Can you count a vote of a diabetic as two votes? If you do, I'll give the keyboard to my wife.

    Also, I support Jolyon Ralph's Hadron Colada. Even if it has no connection to PARIS cocktail. It's just too good to pass.

    I still think the drink, yummyyumyumyummyyum,

    LOOKs like a Vulture's Nest©, ya know. Above the earth,sky and clouds and kind of fouled-looking. And you could still easily pronounce it after, say, two or three. Try that with Hypoglidescenic, Stratospheric Parisian or Frozen Playmonaut, ffsms. sigh. My Major Tom got a leg in, though. Tks guys.

    The List

    Can't believe you didn't include my HAL-LUNA-NATION suggestion in the list......would work particularly well with the 'lite' version.

    I voted

    I went for Insulin Override because that sounds like a William Gibson novel
