Nooooo, I didn’t get a tattoo. I’m way too chicken to get one, although I’ve thought about it. But this is a darn good cocktail, and it just happens to have my name.
How cool is that?
So, I’ve had the drink and knew of it before, but never really thought about where the name originated. So of course I googled it—without any luck. So, if anyone knows where the name came from…let a sista’ know! Just curious.
Being that it’s already the middle of August, I’m trying to throw in as many “tooty-fruity” drinks as I can before the end of summer.
So, I’ll keep posting these tropical drinks until it gets frigid cold. Then what? I’ll figure that out when the time comes. I started “Thirsty Thursdays” on the blog in April of this year, so I have not clue what to do this winter! Suggestions?
On that note, I want to thank all of you for helping my blog to become a success. When I think of success, it means readership to me. It has come a long way since I started it in December of last year, and I am at my happiest when I get the time to blog and take photographs of food and drinks. And it’s all because of you. So a big shout out and hugs to all of you!
Okay, enough with the sappiness and down to the skinny on how you make this cocktail.
Here are your ingredients: dark rum and light rum (I used Bacardi), pineapple orange juice and grenadine. The original recipe calls for orange juice AND pineapple juice…same thing; just one less bottle.
And you know that anything with rum and fruit juice has to be good, right? That’s what I thought. Cheers!
- 1 part dark rum
- 1 part light rum
- 4 parts pineapple orange juice
- Splash of grenadine
- Pour all ingredients in a glass over ice. Stir well to combine.
