Jade Monkeys  

[Cross-posted from my MovableType Blog]

Two people, both very dear to me, went through hell together. From out of that torment, they formed a bond, and acquired this recipe. Today, I toast them and share it with you:

Jade Monkeys
makes 2

3 oz. Midori
1 ½ oz. Bacardi Limon
6 oz. Pinapple Juice

Fill shaker with ice, add ingredients, shake until well mixed and well chilled. strain into two martini glasses. Enjoy.

Unrelated tidbit: drinking in the middle of the day wearing nothing but a bathrobe can make one feel a bit like Hugh Hefner. This is better than the alternative.

Related tidbit: don't let the froofy girly drink exterior fool you. This will fuck your shit up if given the opportunity. Probably because they taste like candy.

Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: "Twin Peaks" — Angelo Badalamenti (on the television)

is the alternative to not feel like hugh hefner? or is it to feel like not hugh hefner?

The alternative is to realize that you're sitting around unbathed, in a dirty bathrobe at 2 in the afternoon getting your drunk on. I choose Hef over that.

It's the only way to preserve one's 'dignity' in that situation.

Damn. Now I want a jade monkey!

(PS- for extra hawt-diabeetus-action, sugar the rims of the glasses.)

Right! I forgot about the sugared rims! Thanks for reminding me!

(Holy exclamation points, batman)
