In honor of the Cocktail Monkey's performing at tonight's 1st Wednesday I thought I'd offer my rendition of an old time summer favorite cocktail, The Mai Tai.

While it's not looking much like Hawaiian shirt, shorts & tropical drink weather, this concoction (along with a nice paper umbrella) will certainly lift your spirits.

Just remember kiddies, don't drink & drive! It's times like this I'm glad we live about a par 4 from downtown & can walk the course home.


"THE" Mai Tai

In a tall shaker glass filled with ice combine the following

1.5 oz. Pineapple Rum
1.5 oz. Coconut Rum
1.5 oz. Spiced Rum (Capt. Morgan or equivalent)
(& here's the kicker, but trust me it works) .5 oz. Amaretto di Sarona

Top with fresh Pineapple & Orange juice, shake to combine.

Float with Dark Rum, (Meyers or equivalent)splash of Grenadine & garnish with fresh mint, pineapple wedge & of course, an umbrella. Pour into a non-red plastic to go cup & shuffle yourselves downtown.

ALOHA!!

Mahalo Grille makes a great Mai Tai... perhaps I will start off this evening there for a drink.

Great idea!!!

Well, I went down to the First Wednesday fest this evening. What a waste of time.

The beer garden is completely off limits to those with children. Instead of having a fimily walk up and down Main with a beer or glass of wine with the kids, the fools that run this ass backwards burg would rather cage in a bunch of drunks that drink and drink and drink.

One and done... won't be heading back!!!
