Out of the Penalty Box!

I have got to be more careful when I pride-bet. But the 24 hours with that awful, awful red-and-white color scheme are OVER! So, I hope, are the Washington Capitals tomorrow night. The Caps may be a bit distracted--wonder why?

As I said, I'll be drinking Crosby Sucks in honor of the chants we'll be hearing all week. However, I thought of what I want to be chanting at my TV. This isn't my recipe--it's a classic cocktail that I enjoyed in my early twenties on the rare occasions when I really, really wanted to get hammered. Basically, it's jungle juice, but since it's blue and tastes citrusy, I loved it.

Adios Motherfucker

1 ounce gin
1 ounce light rum
1 ounce tequila
1 ounce vodka
1 1/2 ounce blue curacao liqueur
2 ounces sweet-and-sour mix
1 ounce lemon-lime soda

Shake all the alcohol plus sweet-and-sour mix in a shaker. Pour into tall glass with ice. Float lemon-lime soda on top.


  1. glad to see you're back to black and gold! I thought the enemy had gotten into my mind when I saw the red and white :O

  2. Didn't mean to alarm anyone. No, the enemy was just in my house, eating my food and drinking my liquor... ;-)

  3. This is fantastic. I for some reason feel great when drinking knowing that it's called Adios Motherfucker. I think this will be drank at then end of every round of playoffs. And perhaps for less monumental events: took out the trash, bills put in mail, etc.
