Mr. Prez sure has been up to a lot the last week. Speaking on almost every topic but the one most near and dear our hearts. Where is the political policy on tikinomics? What about the economy of a cocktail based culture. Surely Obama must have time to work out these important issues? Well, if he doesn't WE DO! So lets start with a super stomach satisfying ginger based drink. A little mint, some passion fruit and get ready to have your socks knocked off. Now that your toasted its time for Pumpkins latest installment of healing remedies. This week is parsley. Not just for your plate, but also great in juice and wine. Yep, WINE! Sunshine and Pumpkin also discuss how each of us can save our local tiki bar, fight stupidity, teach children that they can fail and learn from it, and much more. Make a Mingie Gingie for yourself:
1.5 oz Canton Ginger Liqueur
.5 oz Appleton white rum
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1/3 oz passion fruit syrup
1 large mint leaf torn into 8-10 pieces
Toss everything in a shaker with crushed or cracked ice. Shake very well until the shaker is too cold to hold. Strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with mint and a long piece of curly lemon zest.
