Tuesday Tipple

Owing to the fact that its meant to be summer, the following drink is simply what the doctor ordered! (If you're in Christchurch you will have to imagine the sun shining down benevolently....)

Batida del sol

1and 3/4 ounces of pineapple juice
1 counce of cachaca
3/4 ounce cocnut-flavoured liqueur
2 tsp dark rum
2 tsp cream of coconut
Garnish - 1/2 slice of pineapple and 1 marachino cherry

Shake all ingredients together firmly with ice in the shaker and strain into a highball glass. Top up with crushed ice, perch the pineapple slice on the rim of the glass and fasten the cherry onto it with a toothpick. Be careful not to get the pick up your nose.

Stretch out in the hammock and count your blessings...

So there you are in the hammock, with toothpicks in the pineapple but not in your nose... a photo of that scene would help us better appreciate, or at least of the drink itself... but no, on second thought, better not photograph the drink, we wouldn't want anyone to start slobbering. Again.

Did you see todays NZ Herald? It said that after a nation wide survey it showed that Boy racers were the most prevalent and worse in Christchurch! I thought of you then...
Funnily enough the second worse place was here on the North Shore of Auckland (and out west). I could have told them that : )

Enjoy your drink, could do with something cooling, the humidity is stifling.

Is it warmer yet? I guess it must be if you are contemplating a hammock.

I am now over halfway through my 31 days of no booze so I will store this one up for February. Although I am not a great fan of rum. But by 3 Feb I'll be so desperate I'll drink anything. Meths probably.

Hope the weather is improving for you.

Oh.....you said Tipple. Never mind. I thought I was going to see something else. Gotta get these glasses changed.

Cachaca! I'm going to start using that as an expression. A combination of "Kaching" and "Back atcha!" Or maybe I'll change my last name to Cachaca. It's close to what it already is. God. I'm rambling and I haven't even had a tipple yet. Pass it over, woman, I have a terrible thirst for something pina-coladdyish and the TT will do me just fine! I'm exhausted after having to fill in two separate comment boxes on your blog! I almost slipped on my own slobber climbing up to this one from the one below, anticipating the tipple. Where's O and his dish towel when we need him?

Ah Owen, sorry I'm late replying...I have been doing things French!! (Next post will reveal all, nudge nudge wink wink)

Steve - hope you haven't dried out waiting, here catch....

Undertaker - I know, they're a pain but I guess people are when they don't feel part of sopciety. I'm not sure what the answer is for the 'racers really. My grandfather would have had them all in the army...

rb - I wish, today it's raining again. The annoying thing is that it isn't actually cold. Grr, who would have thought tho' that we would be having the fire going in the middle of January (down here).

Mike - haha, you're welcome to use mine (but it has booze in it...)

Louciao - it's a great name isn't it? I fell in love with cachaca while doing my cocktail mixology course a few years back, altho' I never thought of using the word as an expression! I guess it would be quite effective is hissed sexily enough? As for our brother and his dish towel, he's been and gone I'm afraid....
