Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 949
olla podrida, sleiveen, glower, potable
That sleiveen of a bartender at Sláinte won't get my tip, after promising to make his fantastic “secret special,” then serving me an olla podrida (I thought this was an Irish, not a Spanish bar!) of bottle dregs and glowering at me when I asked to know what was in the non-potable mixture.
