A Drinkypoo For You

  • Food

When I was in Vegas I had a drink called the Spicy Lover at the Rhumbar at our hotel. It was delicious! So delicious, in fact, that I was determined to learn to make it at home. I finally succeeded last weekend and of course I want to share my success with all of you.

  1. OOoo, that sounds good. I don’t generally do cocktails but I do like tequila and having grown up right close to New Iberia I’m a big Tabasco fan.

  2. *Sigh* I am medically enjoined from alcohol. *Sigh*. The dreaming of Vegas part I can do.

    (How does one muddle something, culinarily speaking?)

  3. Yowza! My muddle techniques are fairly lame. My homemade mojitos still need a little work. Any tips?

  4. Thank you! That sounds very fancy. I’m not much one for a drinkypoo, but I have felt like having one or seven this week.

  5. …okay maybe on Friday when the whole famn damly is here. oh hell, I’ll be drinking straight tequila by noon, who am I kidding? ;op
