Das Auto Inteligencia

By Andy Hamilton


Ingredients:

There is an idea that mugwort is a divinatory herb, something that helps you see into the future. It is across cultures and throughout time that this, rather outlandish, claim seems to be made. All I can add to that discussion is that every time I drink mugwort, very strange dreams will follow. The very first time I dreamt of a world where cars were the dominant race; we’d somehow created an AI with a killer instinct and a hive mind.

  • 1 part botanist
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part tansy and mugwort sugar syrup

Method:

Stir all the ingredients together over ice. Exceeding three of these will result in some very odd dreams indeed. You have been warned!


Foraging notes:

If you wanted to have a quick look into any possible future, or even are just content with drinking something right now, the following cocktail is a tasty gate-way. It has to be said too, tansy is a great ingredient to play around with and it pairs very well with citrus. Not to be given to pregnant folk or drunk in quantity. See Thujone
