The cocktail Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said is named after science fiction novel of the same name of the year 1974 by American writer Philip K. Dick. The novel is set in a futuristic dystopia where the United States has become a police state in the aftermath of a Second American Civil War. The story follows genetically enhanced pop singer and television star Jason Taverner who wakes up in a world where he has never existed. If that’s too complicated for you, the cocktail definitely exists.
