probably.  with a drop of grenadine?  anyway teh aardvark doesn't drink. 
  He is a medium-sized, burrowing, nocturnal mammal native to Africa. It 
is sometimes called "antbear", "anteater", "Cape anteater" (after the 
Cape of Good Hope), "earth hog" or "earth pig". However, the aardvark is 
not closely related to the pig; rather, it is the sole recent 
representative of the obscure mammalian order Tubulidentata, in which it 
is usually considered to form a single variable species of the genus 
Orycteropus, coextensive with the family Orycteropodidae. Nor is the 
aardvark closely related to the South American anteater, despite sharing 
some characteristics and a superficial resemblance. The closest living 
relatives of the aardvark are the elephant shrews, along with the 
sirenians, hyraxes, tenrecs and elephants.
