Cocktails At The Burn Pit -- Rehoboth Edition

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!

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49
