Wasting Time

Holy Jebus, there are some nasty mixed drinks out there.

So, I'm looking up mixed drinks that I can make with Bacardi 151, because we happen to have some in the house. Also, we ran out of wine and beer and I'm too lazy to go to the store right now. And look! I found "30+ appetizing drink recipes." Only I find this assessment somewhat disingenuous when I find out that a Jamaican Ass-Kicker is Bacardi 151 mixed with Jolt cola.

Other interesting libations: Parappa the Drunk Rappa, which, besides bringing back memories of a really frickin' old video game, also made me want to vomit just reading it; Dick in the Dirt, which sort of made me feel icky even before reading what it was; and The Shanaynay, which, despite the catchy name, sounds pretty ghetto. I mean, seriously, lemonade powder?

I'm either going to have to go with the old standby of rum and Coke, though all we have is Diet Coke Plus, and moreover I don't really like cola; or I'm going to have to stop being such a wuss and just gulp it down; or I'm going to have to check for something more appealing in the really high-up liquor cabinet. (That's the other thing: the Bacardi 151 is within my easy reach.) Or I could just not be such a booze hound. That would work, too.

If you have ginger beer, you could have the rum with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime. It's not the same as the collective new favorite cocktail, the "Dark and Stormy," since you don't have Blackstrap Rum, but it'll still be pretty good!

Now we're talking! I'll have to try that.

Kick! Punch! It's all in the mind!

Rap Master Chop Chop says: perhaps my rap is really a secret recipe for mixed drinks!

I'd pour the stuff out myself, but then I really am a wuss. I ordered a marguerita the other day and found that I could not drink it; it seemed to have been made with lighter fluid. My husband thought it was just swell. I'm sticking to orange juice.

God, I hope I manage to post this. You wouldn't believe how complicated it is for me to do this now...

I've actually had lemonade powder drinks (although usually vodka based) and they're surprisingly good (in a dorm party kind of way).
