Three ingredients is a cocktail. Two ingredients is an emergency”-Peggy Olson on Mad Men
With National Rum Day (August 16th) fast approaching it might serve us well to take a look at where The Green Parrot stands on the state of rum today.
In a tropical-drink world overrun with tiny umbrellas, excessive garnishes, too many splashes of Grenadine and swirls of Blue Curacao here’s what we consider to be perhaps the ultimate in simple cocktails, the Sailor Jerry two-ingredient Rum-and -Pineapple.
Pineapple, that most accessible of tropical fruit juice coupled with smooth, aromatic Cruzan-distilled , 92 proof Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum in a tall zombie glass packed with ice, can instantly transport you to some wide, shady veranda, a sun-drenched beach or Honolulu dive-bar…. or, maybe just grease the wheels to ease you into a seat under a Parrot ceiling fan for a Friday soundcheck. “What We’re Drinking This Week” is Sailor Jerry & Pineapple
Recipe: Take a 10 oz zombie glass, pack it with a lot of ice, add 1.5 oz Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, fill w/ pineapple juice, serve; no floats, no garnish, no limes.#greenparrotbar #sailorjerry #nationalrumday #rumandpineapple #notinyumbrellas #twoingredientcocktails #greenparrotsoundcheck
