Thought I’d try a lighter topic given recent board activity....
One thing I’ve enjoyed about the MGoCommunity is sharing of recipes, books, music, etc. Always like to get exposed to something I might be missing.
Every year for NYE, the wife and I get together with our good friends who are also Michigan grads and die-hard fans for an evening of food, drinks, and games (annual crowning of euchre champs and start of a new season).
Given the struggles of Michigan football, I was looking for a cocktail for the ladies that would lift their spirits, so to speak. I paged through my file of drinks and found the perfect one, The Pain Killer, which I got in a drink sharing thread here on the blog. It was quite good and I probably made twice as many drinks as I usually do. I think it worked for them, because they got good cards all night.
So, thank you MGoCommuntiy for providing a restorative libation to soothe the pain of Michigan fandom. The recipe follows:
2-4 oz. of Pusser’s Rum (Navy style rum)
4 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. cream of coconut
1 oz. orange juice
Grated fresh nutmeg
Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add the first four ingredients. Shake and pour. Top with grated nutmeg.
If you use 4 oz. of rum, this makes 2 martinis. I used 2 oz. of rum, but in hindsight, probably should have used more to improve the euchre results for the men.
