drinks you should be ashamed to order in public - and one you should really try in private

The Awl published this LIST last week.  With summer creeping damply to its end, and because it looks like the world, especially those who are suffering through the development of developing economies, and those who are suffering through the redevelopment of economies that will become developing if someone doesn't do something, YES, THAT WORLD COULD USE A DRINK RIGHT ABOUT NOW. But I also thought IT'S TIME TO PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES ON, WORLD, and so the list I linked to is a list of what are really drinks for beginners and amateurs.

On the other hand, we haven't used the big blender since last summer, and maybe we should start this world-fixing business by imbibing something cool and summery and tasty. Try this:

Fill blender half-way up with ice cubes.  THEN pour in :
1/4 cup FRESH lime juice
1/2 cup Cream of Coconut (Crema de Coco) -
Goya is the easiest kind to find around here. But it has to be coconut cream, not milk.
3/4 cup white Bacardi rum - unflavored, please.
Put the top on the blender very tightly and blend - on and off yada yada till it looks like a drink.  Remember we are NOT making frozen anything.

Fill up glasses, decorate with piece of lime on the rim. Or not.

Happy sipping.  Oh, this is one recipe I actually make.

To scale up or down, note that the proportions are 1 - 2 - 3.


  1. I've had 1/3 of the drinks on that list. Some multiple times. In one night. *lol*


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
