Cocktail Wednesday - Green Lantern

This week's cocktail, even if it tasted bad, has a great name!  When buying the ingredients not available at my in-home bar, the cashier asked what we were making this week and I just loved being able to say Green Lanterns!

Here's the link to the drink.  The ingredients are:
  • vodka (1.5 oz)
  • melon liqueur (.7 oz)
  • blue curacao (.25 oz)
  • coconut rum (.7 oz) 
  • pineapple juice
  • sprite

(**It is not required to have a glass of wine or a baby bottle when compiling your ingredients.)

Shay told me that she had two batches of this but that in the second one she used lemonade instead of pineapple juice.  I don't know if she used sprite in the second batch.  Anyway, I opted to get lemonade and passed on the pineapple juice and the sprite -- fewer ingredients -- and since she said she liked the second batch better, I went with that.

I put the alcohol in a shaker with ice, and then poured that over ice in the glasses -- about half way up.  I filled the rest of the glass with lemonade. 

Doesn't that look divine or perhaps grinch like?? Anyway, we all loved this one.  It was refreshing and light.  This for me is a 5/5.  I may even make this one again -- perhaps with the right ingredients next time.

I really liked this one a lot (perhaps having three of them was responsible for the love?)

I should have clarified perhaps- down under lemonade is what we call Sprite!

I missed out on this one this week, but I'm going to try it tonight. I'll let you know what I think.

The color definitely fits the name! Glad this one was another success.

Happy Birthday, MLW II !!

My oldest grandson turned 10 yesterday.  Hard to believe I have a grandson who is that old -- I can remember being 10.  It's crazy. Th...
