Is there some kind of statute of limitations on the tastefulness of jokes about a pint-sized murder victim? Especially if said victim sported a coif right out of Dynasty, held a title from the National Tiny Miss Beauty pageant, and suffered under a comically accented first name? In other words, are we allowed to scoff at JonBenét Ramsey yet? (Let's face it: If she were alive today, you would totally hate her.) More than a decade after her pageant-queen dreams were dashed like a rhinestone tiara on concrete, the bartenders at the Argus Lounge dare to mock the made-for-Lifetime saga surrounding her grisly death. And they do it with a drink that suggests what might happen if you left Shirley Temple unattended in the Ramseys' basement: Just pour a little ginger ale, add some Stoli Vanilla, and throw in a "crushed cherry." We're all going to hell anyway.

My signature drink! I made that drink up when I worked at the Argus. It's light and sweet and goes down easy, the kids love it! The best part is that when you're done, the cherry bits look like clots at the bottom of the glass. Yummy. Too bad it took 7 years for you guys to find it.
