Wow, seems like just yesterday I posted our Valentine’s Day movie special, and now it’s already Friday. I had a lot of fun ideas for this week, but life among the coconuts kind of threw me for a loop. Lots of kookie stuff going on…so without any more goofy excuses, here’s a quicky cocktail for the weekend:
The Blue Monkey
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
1 oz coconut rum
1 1/2 oz orange juice
1/2 oz pineapple juice
Fill a hurricane glass with ice, pour in the stuff and stir. Drape with orange, pineapple & cherry garnish, plus one of those little plastic monkeys that hangs off the side of the glass. This drink is sweeter than a lot of Tiki drink lovers dig, but you can level it our with a little more pineapple juice and some bitters.
