New history drinks post up


The History Drinks project is still going (dammit!), and there’s a new post up over there.  The drink is a whale of a punch, the ingredients of which can knock out an imperialist army if you aren’t careful.  The battle in question is the Siege of the Legations, which was a totally epic part of the Boxer Rebellion in China around 1900 (okay, exactly 1900).  Below is a famous image from that episode:

Doesn't the burning building in the background look a little like something from Star Wars?  Or is that just me?
