I have admitted before, I am an extremely lame cook. I don't like making food. I try because my people need to eat, but if everyone could live on coffee, granola, bananas and some seared tuna life would be simple. I did learn something new last night. How to make something. It's not technically a food, and I really can't serve it for dinner, but it's something. A pineapple Mojito. And it's yummy. I never really drank mojitos until Marc and I were in Greece. Drinks are like food to me, once I find something I like I will only order that, it could go on for years. When I was much younger it was the White Russian, or as my friend Jen lovinly refers to it, "the rooskie." Oh, many a night was spent mixing the vodka and the kahula and milk together. Then that ended and I moved to Cosmo's. That little trend has lasted me for years. Recently when we were away Marc ordered a mojito and I loved it. So last night I was with my friends Lisa and Sue at Lisa's club and Sue was drinking them. She was telling the bartender how much she loved them so the bartender did a little demo for us. Like my previous pop-eyed egg recipe I think I will share it here. It's not often I can pass on a recipe so why not?
Get yourself some:
Pineapple cut into small wedges
Put them in the bottom of a tall glass
Toss a dash of Rose's Lime Juice over them. (Apparently this makes it easier to crush)
Get out the mottler tool and smoosh a bit.
Sprinkle some sugar over it-not a ton, just enough
Pour about 6 counts of malibu Rum over it
Top off with a mixture of Sprite and Soda water
Voila, You've got yourself something yummy.
I hope I didn't mess it up at all, Is this right Sue? You're the expert.
And if you have Harry Niilson handy, a little Lime in the Coconut is always fun to listen to, You've got yourself a night.
