While on vacation last week, I noticed that I wasn’t drinking much. Then again, it might be because no one in Cocoa Beach knew how to make a decent sangria. Rather than admitting ignorance, one bartender made up a recipe and added rum to it- cheap, gut rot rum, at that- GAG!
But thanks to my online buddy Barbara’s restaurant suggestions, I found some tasty BBQ. And discovered Surf Rats…oh, my tasty tropical goodness.
2 ounces Orange Juice
2 ounces Cranberry Juice
2 ounces Pineapple Juice
¾ ounce Coconut Rum (Perhaps a little Maliboom Boom?)
¾ ounce Spiced Rum (Got a little Captain in you?)
¾ ounce Banana Liquer
(recipe found on SotallyTober.com)
(I seem to be missing a few key ingredients…)
Surf Rats are light and fruity cocktails that go down quite easily, so beware and be happy this Labor Day weekend!
