5:00 Fridays


Today's cocktail is a bridge between donkeys and elephants. It's a shooter in honor of Sarah Palin. And it's called an Island Donkey, which is a nod to my blue brethren.

Island Donkey
1 ounce Cinnamon Schnapps
1 ounce Godiva Liqueur
1 ounce Coconut Rum (You know I'm partial to Malibu.)

Fill a tall glass or cocktail shaker with ice. Add chocolate liqueur and rum. Shake. Pour into a small glass like one of those old school juice glass or a large shot glass. Drizzle with Cinnamon Schnapps. Ready. Aim. Shoot.

This is as close to shooting as this girl will ever get. I consider my bar a shooting range.

I love it- I am on a crash diet right now since we're heading to the gym- but I'm noting this one- I would like to get that close to shooting her too!

God- I'm dumb- I meant we're heading to the beach soon!!! Obviously the gym is on my mind!

Tenakim, maybe you should have that drink to clear your mind. Enjoy the beach! I am envious.

What's that? SHOOT Sarah Palin? Oh crap, not the same ting. dayum ... as you would say in the south...

I'm not a big sweets drinker, but that actually sounds good. =)

I'd love to know what sort of concoction you'd make for the Elephants in the world. Might I suggest coughsyrup, soda and a dash of out of touch?

Not really relevant, but just tried to subscribe to your blog in google reader and found it a little difficult. The first subscription option in your sidebar brings up a post from march this year, the second one works though.

I don't know if you can fix it (I know I couldn't) but I thought I'd let you know.

I'm subscribed now though:)

Ilina said...

Dan, I am not sure why the Google Reader thing did not work. I have no clue how to fix it so I simply removed it. Thanks for alerting me! I look forward to hearing from you and reading All That Comes With It. Cheers.

Can I have one of those shots too? Sounds yummy and if Palin gets hit, well that's just a bonus.

I laughed when I read this.

And what is the pastel drawing? It's beautiful.

The pastel drawing is by Donna M. LaConte of the Painted Lady's Gallery. You can find her work here http://www.angelfire.com/fl/PaintedLady/ and here http://www.cafepress.com/paintedladyart. I was remiss in not citing her work in the post!
