Japalac Cocktail

This looks kinda like a little tiny tequila sunrise. It kinda taste like one too but just a little stronger. This drink dates back to the 1930s and is named after a brand of super strong, quick dry wood stain.

The name seems to be a play on words, combining the racial slur for a Japanese person and the word lacquer because that brand of wood stain was made with Japan lacquer. But hey, thats the old days for ya.
