A Toast to the "B-52s in the Desert"

On the south end of Rogers dry lake bed (And just north of the barded-wire fence surrounding Edwards AFB), sit two B-52 bomber that were used for experimental purposes until the late 1960s (one bomber was used for testing barrier landing systems, and the other testing engines with General Electric).  These two lonesome bombers rest silently at Edwards, never to fly again (In fact, one was rendered inoperable due to an arms reduction treaty).  Their service to the United States completed, we honor the contributions, and the lives testing these aircraft saved, in beverage form.  

Note: This recipe is a variation of the well-known "B-52" shooter.
