It seems that no one was prepared for the “hiatus” (see most favorite posterous update, possibly ever) that was to strike yesterday afternoon when an earthquake rocked in Virginia and traveled all the way up the shoreline to New England. Not a cocktail recipe was to be found coyly playing off the theme, with the exception of this, ermmm, “gem” that my dear friend decided to tweet at me.
Now, with the impending showers and winds that Hurricane Irene is supposedly thwarting on the East Coast this weekend, the need to have a cocktail recipe on hand seems greater than ever. I resort back to last year’s post when Earl was threatening to hit land amidst my travel plans for a friend’s wedding (a layover through Charlotte, NC was the big hurdle at the time!).
Here’s one of the two drinks I featured before that seems fitting of repeat again this week, The Tidal Wave:
Tidal Wave (pictured above)
1 ½ parts Malibu Coconut
¾ parts Pineapple Juice
Splash of Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
Splash of Coconut Cream
Shake vigorously in a shaker and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a piece of pineapple.
