May The Force Be With You

In honor of everyone celebrating their inner-Star Wars geek this weekend and next and the next and the…well, until the next movie premiers, I saw this on Facebook and had to share. ¬†Having been raised with a very strict Catholic grandmother, I must confess that I’ve thought this on more than one occasion!

May the Force be with you…


…and also with you

Thirsty Thursday #17

2

In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way). As such, I‚Äôve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of a much tastier kind. So without further ado, I present to you Thirsty Thursday, all the way from Hawaii (for some strange reason I have a lot of pictures from Hawaii that qualify for Thirsty Thursdays‚Ķ)!!

One of the great things about drinking well with others is getting to taste different things.  This is providing “others” are willing to share with you…or you are really good at sneaking sips when they are too distracted to notice you partaking in their beverages.

This is a Whiskey Wipeout, which is what Tracy ordered at Duke’s while I ordered last week’s Thirsty Thursday pic: Coconut Mojito.

If you like all things spicy, this is a drink you should definitely get when you find yourself walking along Waikiki in need of a tasty beverage.  Find Duke‘s Barefoot Bar, rinse the sand off your feet and ask for a beachside table.   It has Jim Beam, Grand Marnier, pineapple chipotle syrup, muddled pineapple, and fresh pineapple and jalape√Īos as a garnish.  How can you go wrong with anything that has a pineapple jalape√Īo garnish?!?!?

This little baby is a coconut mojito. ¬†It was the first drink I had in Hawaii. ¬†Blended, not muddled and oh-so-tasty! ¬† While some at the table said the aftertaste was a bit reminiscent of catnip, I thought the creaminess of the coconut with the lingering of mint gave it an extra layer of delicious texture. ¬†Paired with a sinking sun and a beachside table at Duke’s in Waikiki, I was in heaven ūüôā

PS–after some pressing and a lot harassment, it was clarified that it tasted LIKE catnip smells, not that anyone at the table partakes in catnip…at least that he/she is willing to admit!
