The Only Way To Take A Silver Bullet Is Right Between The Teeth

I’m sure you have heard the expression about looking for the “silver bullet”  which is an immediate solution to a problem or a quick fix without any effort.

A detailed description of a silver bullet is here.  But the bottom line here is yeah, sometimes we get lucky and a solution occurs that is simple to implement and solves our problems instantaneously, or we find ourselves the lucky recipient of extra business without much effort on our part, but more often than not the quick fix is ever elusive and it is up to us to make it happen or solve a problem.  So if you are going to take a silver bullet, I say take it right between the teeth, meaning, a successful business takes hard work and and sometimes you have to grit your teeth and just keep going. Or, I think this description makes it a lot easier to swallow. 

Silver Bullet cocktails, a solution in a literal sense, Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930, lists the ingredients:

Silver bullet cocktail. {half} Gin. {quarter} Lemon Juice. {quarter} Kummel. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
