What is anarcho-capitalism??? In this minisode, I speak with Jordon of 805UNCENSORED about this bizarre ideology and how it fundamentally differs from anarchism. We dive much more deeply into these political systems on the upcoming episode of Jordon's podcast titled "What the Fuck is Anarcho-capitalism?" Don't miss it!

COCKTAIL PAIRING: THE TRAGEDY OF THE COMMONS

The name of the drink is an economic science term that describes a situation in which individual users, who have open access to a resource unhampered by shared social structures or formal rules that govern access and use, act independently according to their own self-interest and, contrary to the common good of all users, cause depletion of the resource through their uncoordinated action. This concept describes a fundamental problem inherent to anarchocapitalism: the tendency of the individual to neglect the wellbeing of society when pursuing self-interest and personal gain

Tragedy of the Commons
Ingredients are listed in the order in which they are poured into the glass 

8     ml     Galliano 

15    ml    Goldschläger

15    ml    Goslings or Cruzan Black Rum 

8    ml    High proof dark rum like Worthy Park 109 Jamaican Rum (needs to be over 50% ABV)

Build this drink in a slender shot glass. Pour the ingredients carefully into a glass in the order listed to keep the colored layers separate. You'll need a steady hand and a strong stomach. To layer, take a bar spoon and hold it in the glass, touching the side, with the back of the bowl facing up. Slowly pour each subsequent ingredient over the bowl of the spoon, so it settles lightly over the top of the ingredient below.

The high proof dark rum that is floated on top is meant to be lit on fire. This step is NOT necessary but definitely adds a lot of fun and show. Please use your discretion and use extreme CAUTION when lighting alcohol on fire. DO NOT attempt if you are unsure or if conditions are not safe. Please enjoy responsibly. 

Glassware:      Slender Shot Glass

Garnish:         None

ABV:             40%
