Spam...the kind you eat...or don't.

On this day in 1937, Spam (the luncheon meat) is first introduced to the market. Its name comes from the words "Spiced" and "Ham" and that's about all we know about it.

Urban Dictionary Definition of Spam (pretty funny, if you have time, read them all)

I searched for a Mystery Meat drink recipe but this is the closest I could find.

The Historical Inebriant:  Mystery Drink

3 oz Gin
.5 oz Lagavulin 16 year old Single Malt Scotch
1 Jalapeno stuffed olive

Shake gin and scotch over cracked ice and serve in chilled cocktail glass. 

I fear there are two mysteries here: 1) Why anyone would think of mixing these ingredients
2) Why would anyone want to drink this.

You Absolutely have to watch this - and as the judge says "It's all in the presentation"
