The lunatics are in my Christmas Tree...

We did some Christmas shopping this weekend.

Babe drove.

Played Pink Floyd the whole way.

Right in the middle of his singing Us and Them, he came up with this cocktail idea, inspired by his buddy, Steve.  Did I ever mention that the Babe is brilliant?

This cocktail is powerful, containing four different liquors; Absolut Vodka, Margaritaville Tequila, Bombay Sapphire Gin, and Barcardi Rum!  The addition of cranberry and pineapple juice makes it deliciously divine.  Similar to a Long Island Iced Tea, the taste of the alcohol is almost undetectable.  Strangely enough, Babe and I were only able to drink one of these.  Had the effect of two.  Mick, on the otherhand, enjoyed them so much, he's had three.

He's been singing "Wish You Were Here" for the past 2 hours.  He should be getting sleepy soon.  We hope.

The color - pink, of course.

Comfortably Numb Cocktail

1 oz Absolut Vodka
1 oz Margaritaville Tequila
1 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz Bacardi Rum
  -  feel free to substitute with any of your favorites
1 oz cranberry juice
1 oz pineapple juice

Fill a shaker half way with crushed ice.  Add all the liquors and juices, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.  Pour into tall glass, over ice.  Garnish with a wedge of pineapple.  Makes 2 brilliant cocktails - Drink Happy!
