So I'm housesitting/dogsitting for my longtime boss and family friend. She's pretty awesome and pretty much shaped me into being a true adult, alcohol wise. She was the first one to shame me into never buying Bud Light or $9 fifths of vodka.
She also has all the gear to make a great cocktail, except the high ball glasses are hiding from me (yes I checked the dishwasher.)
Today was scorchingly hot. Insanely hot. 90F+ at the beach, which means it was probably 110 in the valley. The beach is always cooler, so 90F is INSANE.
I wanted to make something beachy and fun an something I couldn't fuck up. So I made a Mai Tai.
Ron zacappa + Don Q Cristal + Cointreau + Disaronno + Lime Juice. Ice + Shake. Strain. And into the closest glass within reach. It's deliciously alcoholic and perfect for a hot summer night.
Since my payment for housesitting for 3 weeks is booze and food, I'm sure there will be more of these to come. If you have any awesome cocktails you want me to attempt, send them my way. Nothing too too fancy and I prefer my measurements and "about the same" or "a shitton more of" rather than all the silly oz stuff.
