The Jim

Previous | Home | Next

On the '70s sitcom "Laverne & Shirley," Laverne made famous the combination of milk and Pepsi. Well, the alcohol equivalent of that concoction is called the Jim. Named for the man who was forced to combine milk and 1 ½ oz. of Hennessy--a brandy-- over ice in a highball glass. Hennessy is often quite popular with folks from the Caribbean. Yet the common mixes are Coke or ginger ale. Just goes to show you, there's a trailblazer, or a Laverne, in every crowd.
