I'm looking for a name idea for lychee juice and vodka.
Absolut.com lists it as "lychee martini" and we know can do better.
Other mixes I need names for:
Vodka and Vernors
Vodka, sprite and grenadine (besides a Dirty Shirley)
Vodka and Chocolate Milk
Vodka, half-and-half, nutmeg and almond extract
Vodka, pickle Juice and fresh-ground pepper
Vodka, potato juice and rosemary
Vodka, beef bullion, teriyaki sauce
Vodka, puree dandelion clippings, lime juice
Vodka, non-toxic marker ink, unbleached paper shreds
Vodka, play-doh, broken jaunes de mouette (seagull eggs)
Vodka, human blood, dog tears
Vodka, adrenochrome, benzodiazepine, raspberry vinaigrette
Vodka, powdered sculpting clay, half of an earthworm
Vodka, fresh iguana semen (or flavor syrup), Panama seawater
Vodka, screams, feelings of dread, garnish with mint
Vodka, cosmic horror revealed by collapsing the epistemological barriers that separate us from the true nature of being
feel free to throw in mix ideas that you want to get name suggestions for, let's just call this a brainstorming general thread.

If GMO is safe, then why does industry vehemently oppose labeling of GMO foods? Why is there an army of PR drones lying to the public by claiming that transgenic techniques are exactly the same as selective breeding, right after building a multi-billion-dollar business plan based on the fact that they are obviously different? Why are respected independent scientists such as Dr. Chapela of the University of California drummed out of the academic world and threatened with violence by agribusiness-sponsored thugs when their findings are seen as inconvenient or potentially damaging?
I'm neither for nor against GMO across the board, because I think with any tool, the context is important. But it's fascinating to me how proponents of GMO act in a uniquely sleazy fashion, akin to pro-fracking or pro-tobacco interests. Who started this culture war, and what's motivating all the dishonesty? Do you suppose they would have acted differently had they known that it would have caused a global backlash against GMO in every country on earth not controlled by corporate thugs?

Welcome to the 5th Round of the 2015 Challenge!
This round is an elimination round.
pon !g5GTSHLbXY has backed out of the competition, meaning only one person actually got eliminated last round...
We had quite a few people not posting last round so I went with the cummulative scores from the open rounds. So two people got lucky ;-). However, we must now say good-bye to MoarCowbells !!qd5P4UpU5Zi. Thank you for playing and don't hesitate to post along for the fun of it during the rest of the challenge!
Here's the list of those who made the top 13!

Regular rules (timestamps and identifiers) still apply. Full rules and past rounds are on the blog : http://ckchallenge.blogspot.ca/
Please read the voting guidelines below. This round will go until April 7th.
Voting follows an 'Iron Chef' style scoring system. This means you, the people of /ck/, will judge each entry individually instead of deciding on what you feel is the "best" dish.
Dishes are scored out of a total 20 points, based on 4 categories (worth a maximum of 5 points each); Presentation, Originality, Appeal and Challenge Goals. You may award 0's if you feel the contestant did not meet your expectations for a category.
-Presentation: The appearance of items on the plate; plating skills
-Originality: Creativity in composing the dish
-Appeal: How appetizing the food looks/whether or not the dish appeals to your personal taste as a voter
-Challenge Goals: How closely the entry followed the challenge goal(s)
The distinction between Presentation and Appeal: If someone submits an artfully arranged but burnt steak as an entry, it may score high in Presentation but low in Appeal.
