No, I am not at Rehoboth. But this shark was.
My friend, Catherine, has a big old house in Rehoboth and I am always getting photos of soft-shell crabs, shrimp, and beach drinks. Last time I was there, Catherine's mother, who is a tad bit older than I, took me on a walk. I kid you not, Celia walked me practically to New Jersey. I was pretty sure I saw Chris Christie. Then I had to walk back. Seriously, I couldn't let her walk back alone and then send a car for me because I had collapsed!
Recently, on that very beach, a shark came ashore. A live, moving shark. I told them to be careful out there walking on that shark infested beach. Catherine said it would make a good Cocktail At The Burn Pit. She was right.
Our cocktail is a variation of Sex On The Beach, a drink generally containing vodka, orange juice, cranberry juice, and peach schnapps. Peach schnapps -- I don't think so.
Here is our version.
Shark On The Beach
2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce Cointreau
2 ounces orange juice
2 ounces cranberry juice
Add all the ingredients to an ice filled shaker. Shake, then strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange slice.
Remember, if Celia asks you to go on a "little" walk, offer to stay home and bartend, instead!
