Blowing smoke up your ass, ca. 1700.
This turned up when I was researching "And a Bottle of Rum: A History of the New World in 10 Cocktails." A machine was evidently invented to blow smoke up the ass of a person presumed dead from drowning, and this would bring him/her back to life. In theory. If no machine available, a tobacco pipe could be use, with precautions against back wash.

How does this relate to the contemporary use of the phrase. I'm not sure. But, seriously, can it be wholly unrelated?


SUMMARY OF THE METHOD OF TREATMENT TO BE USED WITH PERSONS APPARENTLY DEAD FROM DROWNING.

CONVEY the person to the nearest convenient house, with his head raised;—Strip and dry him as quick as possible; clean the mouth and nostrils from froth or mud—if a child, let him be placed between two persons naked, in a hot bed—if an adult, lay him on a hot blanket or bed, and in cold weather, near a fire—in warm weather, the air should be freely admitted into the room.—The body is next to be gently rubbed with warm woollen cloths sprinkled with spirits, if at hand, otherwise dry;—A heated warming-pan may be now lightly moved over the back, properly covered with a blanket—and the body, if of a child, is to be gently shook every few minutes:—Whilst these means are using, one or two assistants, are to be employed in blowing up tobacco smoke, into the fundament, with the instrument provided for the purpose, or a Tobacco-Pipe, if that cannot be had—the bowl filled with Tobacco, and properly lighted, being covered with a handkerchief, or piece of linen, so as to defend the mouth of the assistant in blowing;

The NYT mentioned the Rabbit mixer recently, and not favorably. And I agree with the comment that shaking by hand is always preferred, if for no other reason than I'm old-fashioned. Except when paint can shakers are involved.

Any of you mixologists/bartenders out there have either used this product or thought about using this battery powered cocktail mixer? Thoughts? Yea? Nay? #cocktail #cocktails #cocktailmixer #cocktailshaker
