Happy New Year!

Normally this is the time for looking back over the past year, reflecting on one's struggles and successes, and casting a hopeful glance forward, into the future.

You'll find none of that here.

No, all you'll get is a picture of my sister-in-law Kate's hand, holding aloft our last drink creation of 2006:

The Don Ho Motherf*cker.

The DHMF is kind of a high-octane Blue Hawaii topped with champagne (tiny bubbles, of course) and served in a festive Don Ho tiki mug. We've worked on this recipe for several months, and I'm still not satisfied; fortunately this is the prototype, and there's always room to improve. In the short time since I've served these, while we wait for the oven to preheat, I have discovered that there needs to be a one-drink limit on the DHMF.

Here's hoping y'all have a good night tonight and a good tomorrow. If 2006 beat the sh*t out of you, I hope 2007 treats you better. If 2006 was good, I hope you build on your successes.

Bottoms up!

I think that you should drink some Don Ho Motherf*ckers while watching Snakes on a Motherf*cking Plane!

Here is the recipe for the Don Ho MotherF*cker:

2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz sweet & sour
1 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 teaspoon of cream
3 oz vodka

Mix these ingredients and fill a festive tiki mug with crushed ice NOT CUBES. Pour over crushed ice about 2/3 full, then top with champagne, then pour a dollop more on top of the champagne.

Jin, thanks for the holiday wish. Check the comments on your page, I suggested a new years toast for 2006.

Katy, here's to 2007!

Johnny, my sister in law showed me the "stuff on my cat" webpage. One of them showed a pet cat covered with rubber snakes--snakes on a motherf*ckin cat!

Kate, not much makes us happier than watching people enjoy something we cooked, mixed or poured.
