    Wow, this is quite the list. Nice to see some of my own favorites on it. What is in Errol Flynn’s Pick-Me-Up, I wonder.

      You’re not alone, Paula. Many women have wondered what an Errol Flynn Pick-Me-Up involved.

      Oh, you mean the drink! … Thank goodness! … Here you go!

      Any good vodka will do. Absolute is not absolutely required.
