Minimum Viable Moscow Mule
Vodka, lime juice and ginger beer drunk warm from a paper cup in Sprint 7. The ice isn’t scheduled to happen til Sprint 8, and the copper mug was cut from the budget.
Really Old Fashioned
Rye whiskey, bitters, a sugar cube, and a few waterfall splashes. Takes forever to make, and by the time you serve it, the client wants something else.
Gold & dark rums, juice, and bitters, drunk standing up at 9 am. Every team member takes a turn saying how many they drank yesterday, how many they plan to drink today and any roadblocks that might prevent their consumption.
Vodka, pear nectar, lemon juice and simple syrup. One programmer drinks it, the other reviews the first programmer’s technique to make sure they did it right.

“Lean In” Mule
Vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice, made between 11:15 pm and 6:30 am because that’s the only time you’re not at work.
Macerate 6 mint leaves in a simple syrup of tubinado sugar and water, add a shot of Cuban rum, juice one lime into…geez, this is taking way longer than the estimate, we’ll have to carry it in the next sprint.
Skittles-infused vodka, orange juice, and a pile of swizzle sticks to organize by length and color.
The Scope Creep
Gin and tonic. Wait, can you add some bitters to that? Oh, and can the tonic be in a separate glass? I’ll have it over at that table instead. And can you bring some peanuts with that? Then some buffalo wings?
Whiskey and sour mix, sent back three times until the bartender gets it right.
Minimum Viable Martini
A martini glass with just enough chilled vodka for the first sip.
Cowboy Code Margarita
The best margarita you ever tasted, but the bartender can’t replicate it. Plus, the bar’s a mess.

Grey Goose and dissolved Skittles, the only mixer available from the vending machine at 2 am.
Jack Daniels, club soda and lemon juice, already 3/4 finished.
Smirnoff, Galliano, and orange juice with an orange Post-it garnish.
Bacardi Silver, Hawaiian Punch and frozen lemonade concentrate, drunk standing up at 8:30 am.
It’s not necessary to know the full recipe up front.
Backlog Captain and Coke
Captain Morgan. That’s all. The Coke will be added in the next sprint.
