Tuesday Tipple

Why did the Mexican throw his wife off the bridge? Te keel 'er.

This weeks Tipple is Tequila based (which may or may not explain the awful joke above); it is known as an Ole

30ml of tequila
30 ml Lena banana liqueur
7 ml Blue Curacao
ice

Pour the tequila and banana liqueur into a mixing glass filled with ice, stir then strain into serving glass. Something nice and tall and champagne-like would be my recommendation!
Drop the blue curacao through the centre of the cocktail to achieve a two-tone effect. The blue curacao will sink becasue it is heavier than the other ingredients.

Don't blame me if you get a headache attempting this one, it took me about 4 glasses to get the hang of the "drop" method! Natuarally one should not waste the ingredients so if at first you don't succeed (like a budgie with no teeth) then drink it anyway and start again!

Tuesday tipple, is it? Goodie, that's tomorrow! Soon!
I like the one-liner about the keeler: a) for the joke b) because my great-grandfather's last name was Keeler, and it seems his ancestors were Irish boatmen who were keelers. This kind of research is fun for us Americans as we're all a bit mutts!

Owen said...

Sounds decidedly dangerous Amanda ! You are changing New Zealand's reputation singlehandedly... LOL ! After a few of these I'll bet I'd be ready to get keel-hauled, for surely I'd do something idiotic...

And to Margaret... I'll drink to mutthood... :-D

Lynne, this is definitely NOT something for a quiet, candlelit dinner for two !

I've never been able to hold drink. I don't think that it is because i'm light or anything -- but when I was 13 i accepted a dare to eat a watermelon spiked with Jack Daniels in under 5 minutes.

...I felt really great for about 3 minutes. ...then I woke up the next day really, really sick!

...but, your drink and joke make me wanna dance except I would probably just fall over.

love and kisses,
matty

Lou - yes indeedy! And no farting.

Margaret - I am quite partial to a bit of family history as well, I recently discovered that on my mother's side "we" arrived in Canterbury via one of the Four Ships which practically makes us Chch royalty. Hoorah.

Owen - a goody, you're here. Now we can start telling the rest of the jokes... or shall we just start muttering?

Matty - haha, I'm glad that put you in a dancing mood! We'll scatter the beanchairs about later so when we all fall down it won't hurt! :-)

Steve said...

Is it pronounced olÉ? Or 'ole? I can imagine saying it the first way after concocting this cocktail and then after a few quaffs feeling like the latter...! ;-)

The Sagittarian said...

Steve - I agree, and eventually it would be just a matter of pointing and gesturing I suspect!

Little Johnny asked and received help from a librarian on how to use the card catalog. In a little while, he approached the librarian again, wanting to know how to spell "tequila."

"T-e-q-u-i-l-a," spelled the librarian, and Little Johnny thanked her and went back to his search.

A short time later he came to the desk, looking quite distraught. "I just can't find it." he said.

"What book are you looking for?" the librarian asked.

Replied Little Johnny, "Tequila Mockingbird.

Isn't Google amazing?

Owen said...

As further evidence that Google is indeed amazing :

A new guy in town walks into a bar and reads a sign that hangs over
the bar: FREE BEER FREE BEER FOR THE PERSON WHO CAN PASS THE TEST!
So the guy asks the bartender what the test is.

Bartender: "Well, FIRST you have to drink that whole gallon of
pepper tequila, the WHOLE thing at once AND, you can't make a face
while doing it. SECOND, there's a 'gator out back with a sore
tooth...you have to remove it with your bare hands. THIRD, there's
a woman up-stairs who's never had an orgasm. You gotta make things
right for her.

Man: Well, as much as I would love free beer, I won't do it. You
have to be nuts to drink a gallon of pepper tequila and they get
crazier from there.

Well, as time goes on and the man drinks a few, he asks, "Wherez
zat teeqeelah?" He grabs the gallon of tequilla with both hands,
and downs it with a big slurp and tears streaming down his face.

Next he staggers out back and soon all the people inside hear
the most frightening roaring and thumping, thrashing and bellowing, then silence.

The man staggers back into the bar, his shirt ripped and
big scratches all over his body.

"Now" he says "Where's that woman with the sore tooth?"

Signed,
A decidedly sorry sod
(for being so naughty... will go write on the blackboard 100 times... I must not copy and paste bad jokes in the comment box !)

louciao said...

Not only tippling but telling ribald jokes on Tuesday in Christchurch! This is a great place you're running, Saj! Too bad about the ban on farting, though.
I'm afraid to say that Owen's contribution did make me LOL. (don't tell him!)
Now, dear hostess, what's that other naughty joke that you didn't leave on my blog?

The Sagittarian said...

Tenon - oh dear, I appear to have created a monster!

owen - you rascal you!

Lou - Owen's contributions always make people laugh! I won't tell him cos he will get a swelled head (and that makes my joke left at your place seem even worse somehow...)

A Write Blog said...

So you got the hang of it after 4 glasses!

Does that mean that the only way to do it properly you've got to be 'half cut'

louciao said...

HaHaHa!LOL! Swelled head.It does, indeed, make the joke you left even worse. Do you think he also has a hard head?

Reluctant Blogger said...

Ah I think I may well try this on Friday night. I am sure I will be on the floor before I get it right because I am hopeless and clumsy but I would never tip a drink away.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Actually maybe Friday would not be a great idea. I am off to London on Saturday and a hangover would not be great. I'll try two maybe.

matty said...

Yes! Take care when you fall! It matters! love and kisses,
matty

The Sagittarian said...

AWB - suffice to say that when I did the cocktail mixology course I had to take the bus home!

Louciao - I can see that you're going to get me in trouble! Fantastic.

RB - oh you don't want a hangover in London for sure! You could mix some up and take it with you...

Matty - Yeah I'm not that big on falling, I found that the fall itself is fine but that sudden stop at the end is a bitch!

Owen said...

Was wondering if you felt the earthquake where you were the other day ??? If so, did you realize it was an earthquake, or did you just think it was someone wrestling a large alligator out behind the local bar ??? :-D

Hope no one was too frightened, sounds like it shook South Island a bit ?

The Sagittarian said...

Owen - yes, felt that 'quake! Where we are it was more of a rolling sensation than a 'quake, but my MUCH older brother lives not far from the epicentre of the quake and they were ready to run for their lives!!
