Adios, Motherfucker

The Adios, Motherfucker (sometimes known as an AMF or a Blue Motorcycle for the squeamish) is essentially a blue Long Island Iced Tea. The drink is American in origin, appeared to emerge in the 1980s, and had a resurgence around 2016. We can’t work out exactly who came up with it.

Ordering one requires … balls.

    Ok, this is totally random, but one of my clients said he and his buddies invented the AMF one night when they were tending bar.
    He used to be a liquor distributor, traveled up and down California and has some crazy stories.

    The Adios Motherfucker cocktail was invented by a bartender at TGIFridays in Orange, whose real name escapes me, but I do remember he had an alter ego named “Loki”. He invented the drink, but it was originally called an “Adios Madre” it evolved into “Adios Mother”, then “Adios Motherfucker”, by, if I recall, Brady “Ike” Eisenhower (AHS class of 1983 or 84), may he Rest In Peace. Ike also invented the “its nacho cheese” joke. I’m totally serious. I was there!

      I drank my first Adios Motherfucker in about 1977 at The Creamery in San Luis Obispo; it had been served there for years. They had a sister restaurant/bar in Newport Beach that also served this drink. They invented it and advertised it as such, calling it an Adios Mother on their menu.
