I’m trying to tell you now it’s sabluetage

Now alerted to the trend by the honorable Camper English of Alcademics, I hereby swear to be on the lookout for instances of sabluetage.

Lest you imagine that 2012 cocktail color trends are hopelessly outdated, let me propose that everything English writes was previously foreseen by Irish poet William Butler Yeats, who wrote of rises, falls, returns, and bright blue things in his 1933 poem “Lapis Lazuli”:

All things fall and are built again
And those that build them again are gay.

-Yeats, 1933
