This is my best - 6.5206. 27 comments, 10th place. Probably would have done better had the challenge not been called "recipe". A couple of comments that this wasn't a recipe. We need a "drinks" challenge.

It's been since Nov 12, 2005 since I have even been able to break back into my top 4...I've had two more ribbons since then and still couldn't do it. I hope I'm not stuck!!

Cock a hoop is not an innuendo...just an expression for feeling happy

websters....Cock a hoop, or cock on the hoop, a phrase denoting triumph; triumphant; exulting

From Joes-ks.com Origin..During medieval drinking bouts the spigot or cock was often removed from the barrel and placed on the hoop at the top. The beer flowed freely and the drinkers were full of merriment and delight. The 1811 dictionary, however, spells it Cock-a-whoop, thereby raising an altogether different possibility

It's a pity that there is so much grain, it was not intentional but when I discovered it I couldn't take another picture :(
Hope I learnt to check ALL the settings before shooting!
