Now, a half sane person would have kick-started this post with lyrics about “a lime and a coconut and mix it all up,” but I have never claimed to be even one-quarter sane. After driving 600 miles to Michigan and back with my two kids, my childhood friend Stacie and her three kids in a BAMFT–I am clearly zero percent sane. The video below is about #3 out a total of 768 times we sang along with “Call Me Maybe”. Eleven hours of hearing this song, along with “Are we there yet?” 8 zillion times may very well be the motivation behind my “Greased-up Slip-n-Slide of Death“.
What says, “I’m cooking in the 100 degree heat and I don’t feel a damn thing?” like a lime/coconut, mostly boozed-up beverage? Nothing. Hell, I’m bullet proof, nothing to lose. Fire away.
So, let’s go make a drink-clink and use my favorite local rum Brinley Gold. What? You didn’t know we have a family owned rum company right here in Baristaville? Well, we do. And this stuff is smooth, delicious and very well priced.
Here is what you will need:
- Brinley Gold Coconut Rum ( Mango or Lime works as well)
- Fresh lime
This is how you mix it up:
Pour one jigger of rum into a tall glass filled with ice. Squeeze-in a wedge of fresh lime and fill the glass with seltzer and stir. Now drink up, Carley.
This drink is crisp, fresh and light. If you have some mint taking over your plot, try adding a sprig to your drink. I AM NOT A FAN OF RUM but I absolutely love this brand. It’s so good I can actually drink it straight up!
- Brinley Gold Rums available at: Angelbecks, Town House Wine, Bottle King, A&P Wines & Spirits and Shop Rite Liquors
- Fruit glasses set of 6-$36
- Bamboo cane drink stirrers -$16
- Metal fruit tray-$10
- Owl carved from a coconut( a perfect gift for Barista Georgette Gilmore, she loves owls and coconuts)-$26
All available at Garnish
