Today's Drink Recipe: Jellyfish


White creme de cacao


Irish cream


Use a rocks glass or a cordial glass. Pour equal parts amaretto and creme de cacao (about a half shot each). Layer irish cream on top.

To make the jellyfish: using a beverage straw, drop grenadine through the irish cream. The grenadine will sink to the bottom, leaving trails of cream behind. These are the tentacles. Fun!

1 1/4 oz tequila

1 oz peach schnapps

Pre-chill an unsalted margarita glass with ice. Pour all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker. Shake shake shake! Pour into the prepared glass. Anytime I use blue curacao, I like to garnish with an orange wedge.

Today's Drink Recipe: Chelsea's Tipsy Turtle

A customer brought this drink back to me from the Bahamas. She had visited the Green Turtle Club on Abaco. The Club specialty, the Tipsy Turtle Rum Punch, was chosen by Esquire Magazine as the best rum punch in all the Caribbean. Chelsea came to the bar wearing a t-shirt with the recipe for a gallon of the stuff, along with a black eye. "Tipsy" is apparently an apt name. :-) So she turned around, I did a quick set of conversions and wrote down the recipe. After that we became friends. So here it is, Chelsea's Tipsy Turtle!

Chelsea's Tipsy Turtle

3/4 oz vodka

3/4 oz light rum

3/4 oz dark rum

1 1/2 oz coconut rum

1/2 oz creme de banane

splash grenadine

pineapple juice

orange juice

Fill a hurricane or pint beer glass with ice. Build drink over ice, finishing with equal parts of the juices. Pour into a shaker and shake, shake, shake!

Garnish with an orange slice and a flagged cherry.
