Well here it is, yet another Tuesday and time for another episode of Kitty Kill’s “Tie One On Tuesday”. I will be your host for the day – you can call me OMP (see last Wednesday’s Blog entry for an introduction).
For today I reached into my little bag of Books and came out with one of my all time favorites – Beach Bum Berry’s Grog Log. If you’re not familiar with the Bum, check him out. The man can mix (and write one hell of a book)!
I came out with two of the more Outer Space themed recipes out of the book and decided to take them for an interstellar spin!
First up: The Coconaut ( a Beach Bum Berry Original)
You will need:
8 oz. Lopez Coconut cream (and Yes Lopez is the best – I used an inferior product)
2 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (only way to go – Roses is not Lime juice people!!)
7 oz. Dark Jamaican Rum
Put everything into a blender and fill blender to the top with Ice cubes. Blend until slushy. Pour into a coconut cup mug. Serves two to four people.
Next up: The Test Pilot (from Don the Beachcomber circa 1941)
Ingredients for this little doozey are:
1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice (again – Fresh!!)
1/2 oz. Falernum (thanks to my pal Trader Tiki for the homemade spicy additive!)
3 tsp. Cointreau (or other Orange based liquor)
Dash of Angostura Bitters
1/8 tsp. Pernod
3/4 oz. Light Puerto Rican Rum
1 1/2 oz. Dark Jamaican Rum
Blend with 1 cup crushed Ice for 5 seconds, then pour into a double old fashioned glass (or Tiki bucket – hee hee!). Add more crushed ice to fill. Garnish with a lime wedge and cherry.
There you have it for this week kiddies. Now kick back with your drinkie-poo under the stars and see what type of interstellar objects come into view (or go out of focus depending on how many drinks you have had).
