Cocktail or racehorse name?

You decide which is which.

1. All Dressed Up Like A Dog's Dinner
2. Cabana Boy
3. Loaded Question
4. Widow With A Secret
5. Trouble For Tina
6. Major Tom
7. Smog Alert
8. Sandra Buys A Dog
9. Rumors On The Internets
10. Gimme The Keys

(1, 4, 5, 8: cocktails, according to "The Bartender's Bible" by Gary Regan; 2, 3, 7, 10: racehorse names registered with the Churchill Downs Jockey Club; 6: both. Sadly, 9 is neither.)

Did anyone ever see the episode of Cheers, where Woody was replaced by a bartender who knew how to make every drink in the world? The bar regulars eventually got rid of him by making up a drink called a Screaming Viking, which only Woody knew how to make. From what I remember, it involved bruising a cucumber before putting it into the drink.

I think it's a good idea to test bartenders with silly cocktails.

I really wish that Rumors on the Internets (love that superfluous s) were a cocktail; maybe we should invent one?

Hey, was it you two that I used to visit bars in Fort Collins with and ask bartenders to serve me their most whimsically-named drink? And we'd keep track of how many didn't know what "whimsical" meant?
