The word Marist refers to a Catholic order that traces its roots to the Society of Mary. In other words, "Mary-ist." So our choice of drinks for this game's Mixology is an easy one.
Easy to choose, that is, not so easy to make. In fact, it's been called the world's most complex cocktail. Which is also why we're highlighting it now.

Recipe is once again from thebar.com. This is your base version; this drink has more variations than Maryland's ugly uniforms. As with all installments of this series, feel free to adjust to taste. But if you come up with a variation that truly captures the spirit of USF basketball, or of a particular game, do let us know in the comments.
