Dear Robitussin,

Did you know your product makes a superior replacement choice for grenadine in most cocktails? The other night I was making some Tequila Sunrises for some friends, only to realize, after it was too late, that I was out of grenadine. Instead of allowing this to ruin the evening, for my friends and I, a simple bottle of Robitussin Cough syrup saved the day (evening actually)! Don’t worry, I was ethical about this. I told most of them.

Alcohol kills germs, orange juice helps fight a cold, and Robitussin makes things a bit better! There are over 500 drinks made with grenadine. Think of this untapped market. A recipe book extolling the virtues of using Robitussin Cough syrup instead of grenadine would make the stuff fly off the shelves. Now people can go out and party even while not feeling well or with a cold.

I can’t believe it took me this long to discover this! If you do come out with a Robitussin cocktail book, could you please send me one?
