Eric is not so much a fan of the fruity, umbrella-laden cocktail. So, when I mix up a batch of anything requiring coconut rum and sunscreen…I drink alone. I’ve been rather remiss at researching what we’ll be drinking prior to six o’clock on Sunday night. I’ll have to rectify that situation. Because really, we’re gonna have to break out the good stuff (and by good, I mean unusual) soon. But, in order to do that, I will have to prepare. There will be recipe research and shopping and all that good stuff. Rather than what is currently happening, which is this…
Eric: The burgers will be coming off the grill in about five minutes.
Me: Ok, what are we going to drink tonight?
Eric: I don’t know.
Me: Let’s see what’s near the front of the cabinet/fridge/memory banks.
Me: How about [fill in the blank with above-mentioned fruity drink].
Eric: I’ll just have water.
So, here you go, the Hpnotiq Blue Breeze.
2 oz Hpnotiq
1 oz coconut rum
Splash of pineapple juice
Pour ingredients over ice, stir and garnish with a lemon or orange twist*.
*As you can probably tell, I am not so big on the garnish. Note to self: planning ahead might help.
Another week, another cocktail…cheers!
