I'd have to say that my favorite drink has to be a good margarita (in case you hadn't figured it out by now from my screen name). Tequila, cointreau, lime, and salt around the rim are all I ask for :thumb: .
Now, there are a couple of drinks I haven't had the chance to try yet, but I'm going to have to order one of them the next time I go to Margaritaville down at the Flamingo on the strip.
The first recipe was created and given to me by a fellow Parrot Head while I was still working in the nautical (and Buffett) gift shop in San Diego. It's called a "Nutty Hawaiian" and it goes something like this:
"Fill glass (how big is up to you) with equal parts of Southern Comfort, Amaretto, and Coconut Rum until 2/3 full. Add pineapple juice until full. Pour into a shaker and shake well. Pour back into the glass, or over ice if you wish." Sounds tasty :thumb:
The other recipe came from the internet. It's inspired by a drink mentioned in a book called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy called a "Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster." It's said to be the best drink in the galaxy and is supposed to leave the impression that your head has just been slammed between a couple of gold bricks
. Here's the Earth version:
1 oz. EverClear
4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
2 oz. Herredura Tequila
5 oz. Rum
1 worm from bottle of Mezcla
2 oz. Gatorade
Before drinking, eat one olive to create a sweetness in it which is not there
I don't know just how this one will taste, but after looking at the ingredients, I'm sure its effect on the consumer's central nervous system will quickly become evident to the casual observer :devil: ! Last time I drink it here https://fastinternational.org/long-spring-keyser-wv/
Come on and share your knowledge guys
