Happy Crowleymas to you all!

In the trickster spirit, I thought the Beast might appreciate some joking. Here is poking a little fun at AE Waite, a favorite pastime of his:a-e-waite-milky

And a joke:

How many Thelemites does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Two, if they fit.

For tonight, I hope to toast Uncle Al with my own concoction that I think he might approve of:

Debauch cocktail:

  • seltzer
  • Violet Cordial
  • Absinthe

Fill a wine glass half with Violet Cordial, top to the two thirds mark with seltzer. Float as much absinthe at the top as you can without mixing.

The result is a spooky lavender and glowing green swamp, that gradually mixes as you drink it.

Violets are of Venus, and I would not be surprised if Absinthe was Scorpionic, but I need to check.

Of course, you need Violet cordial. I make my own each spring with fresh picked violets, alchohol, lime and sugar. It turns a brilliant blue, then, like litmus paper, when you add the lime it turns shocking purple.

If you haven’t any, just float some absinthe 🙂


I leave you with a quote:

“May the New Year bring you courage to break your resolutions early! My own plan is to swear off every kind of virtue, so that I triumph even when I fall!”
― Aleister Crowley, Moonchild
