Walk the Plank

Last week in Portland the weather was amazing. 60 degrees and sunny. Today, however, the rain came back. In order to keep my feet dry, I decided to put on my pirate rubber boots. They make me very happy and feel like I'm 5 years old every time I splash through a puddle. Which bring me to now. See, I have a weird way to bringing things together. My boots reminded me of pirates, which remind me of my pirate friends and drinking. So I call them up and ask them what are the best pirate drinks. They give me a few and I end the call by asking them if the want to meet me at ARRRRRRRRBY's  for some BARRRRRR BBQ(said in my worse pirate voice), in which the phone goes dead. I have found out that my pirate friends have no sense of humor, which might be the reason they drink. Where was I, oh yes, Tie One On Tuesday and Pirate drinks-so here are few to bring out the swash buckler in all of us and may even help with that scurvy problem.

First....Captain Morgans spice rum-is a BIG NO NO! Do not use it at all!

First up is the Angry Pirate Cocktail. I'm not sure why he's so angry. This drink sounds delicious!

1/2 ounce Peach Schnapps
1/2 ounce Coconut Rum
1/2 ounce Blue Hawaiian Schnapps
1/2 ounce Melon Liqueur
1 ounce pineapple juice
Splash of 7-Up
Pour the peach schnapps, coconut rum,Blue Hawaiian schnapps, melon liqueur and pineapple juice into a mixing glass half-filled with ice cubes. Stir well and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with chilled 7-Up, garnish with lime, and serve.

Say yer looking for treasure matey? Well, here be your Pirate Treasure!
2 ounces Spiced Rum
1 1/2 ounces Whisky
12 ounce Coke or Cola like drink
Combine all in a glass and drink up!

Last but not least, this one is for the pirate that likes ice cream and really, what pirate doesn't?
The Chocolate Pirate
1 1/2 ounces rum
1 ounce coffee liqueur
1 ounce milk
2 scoops chocolate ice cream
Blend ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve in a chilled wine goblet (cause I'm fancy like that)

ARGH mateys! There be yer drinks to warm yer belly. Be careful with these concoctions, they may seem mild but after a few you will be donning puffy shirts, mounting a fake parrot to your shoulder and cussing like a sailor. Come to think of it, I might already be there-I've got the parrot and cussing part down.

I have been a Pirate for many a year! Since 1979 to be exact! My college roomie and I had a "bar" named The Pirate's Rut. Maybe I'll blog it one day.

But being of Irish decent my Pirate drinking has been confined to grog (beers) and fine Jameson whiskey. With the occasional Southern Belle bourbon thrown in for Southern Belle reasons!

Thanks for sharing the recipes!

Oooh, just had a thought - we should get a bunch of blogs together to do a Talk Like a Pirate Day mega-blogging and link 'em all up!
