A commonly made mixed drink on the island Seychelles
. In a short glass
combine 2-3 ice-cubes, five shots of high
, and the minimum amount
is an isolated island in the Indian ocean. At one time imported products such as coke were
more expensive than rum. Mr. D'offay coined
the term with various bartenders
on the island.
Today the D'offay double serves as a way subtly request
a very stiff drink without arousing suspicion of your alcoholic tendencies to your intermediate company.
The term has since spread to many European countries, where it is illegal for bartenders
to serve quadruples or stronger. It used
as code for a quintuple rum and coke, with the understanding
you will tip the bartender generously.
After three D'offay doubles Bernard was ready for the club.
My god this
drink is strong, what is it? a triple? No, it's a D'offay double.
