Tie One On Tuesday!

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.

Now – to add a little excitement to your drinking try a Coconaut Re-entry (ALA: A Flaming Coconaut)

Remove the pulp from a piece of Lime shell. Float it ontop of your drink. Partly fill the shell with some 151 proof rum. Ignite from a safe distance and Wah – Lah – A Flaming Coconaut!

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).
