Blue Moon…cocktail?

blue moonTravel tip: Blue Moon is apparently not always a beer. In Australia (and I suspect parts of Europe) a Blue Moon is actually a cocktail. So if your boyfriend orders a Blue Moon expecting a beer and gets a girly gin-based cocktail, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

At least he got the orange slice he wanted!
