if it ain't a drink, it oughtta be

Beautiful malapropism on the job today: one colleague was describing his Halloween costume (soccer hooligan), and tried to say that he'd be carrying something threatening, like a Molotov cocktail. Except he said "Mazel tov cocktail."

This was, of course, the greatest such slip-up I have ever heard. We spent a merry several minutes trying to figure out exactly what would be in a mazel tov cocktail, and whether its function would be to explode or simply circumcise every male within a ten-yard radius. I think it should be a drink, myself, but I'm not sure what should be in it. Possibly Manischewitz and Everclear.
