The Phillies are selling liquor and wine now, so fans can drown their sorrows

Aramark and the Phillies announced Tuesday that this season they’ll be selling booze at Citizens Bank Park’s general concessions areas for the first time. Beer they already sold, but liquor and wine were only available in the fancier parts of the ballpark, like the premium seats. Not any more.

Hey, guys, you need help with that cocktail list? It seems like the Phillies roster offers plenty of inspiration, such as:

• The Ryan Howard Slammer — it’s a big ol’ drink that costs $25, but don’t worry, it won’t even get you drunk, because it’s basically useless.

• The Papelbonbon — Jagermeister, tequila, absinthe and Fireball mixed with Red Bull and Mountain Dew, served with an Irish Car Bomb chaser. It’ll probably make you grab your crotch. It may make you say dumb things. It might actually kill you.

• Amaro Island Iced Tea — nobody likes this drink, but somehow it’s still on the menu.

• Hamels Sunrise — basically, you order this, babysit it and wait for someone to scoop you up and take you to Boston.

• Cliff Lee’s Last Call — inspired by Cliff Lee’s possible last season because of a lingering elbow injury, this is a collection of whatever the bartender has left. If you’re lucky, it might taste good, but probably not.

• Utley 2600 — the finest drink on the menu, if nothing else is worth a damn (and it probably isn’t), there’s always this.
