Name That Drink!

Tonight MizBubs worked her magic and surprised me with a tasty cocktail. Once I saw her mixing, and caught a whiff of fresh lime juice, I was mighty glad I bothered to put together a decent dinner while she was at work:

A mixed green salad with roasted pecans and sun dried tomato vinaigrette dressing,
Grilled chicken breasts,
Pasta tossed with sauteed zucchini and red peppers in a light cream sauce


But anyway, I was here to talk about the drink. Yeah, it's always about the drink here, isn't it? Unless it's about the pork product.

So here's the drink:

One 5.5 oz can of Kern's pear nectar
Juice of one lime
4 shots of coconut rum

The drink was remarkably sophisticated. Of course it reminded me of summer and sunshine, but not in an overly tropical drink kind of way. The pear nectar provided a rich mouth feel, and was a perfect vehicle for the lime. It was delicious, and MizBubs presented it simply, on the rocks, in a wine glass.



The problem is, we don't have a name for it.

Readers, you have never let me down when I've asked for assistance. Remember, you gave us the Lazy Bastard.

Let me see, you've got coconuts? A pear?

I'm submitting two: The Admiral Peary or the Peary Como.

I think that it needs to be named in MizB's honor. How about the "Doting Wife"?

I think it should be callled:

Sandy Toes.

Since no one has said anything profane yet, I guess I have to step up to the plate.

I'd recommend a slight modification; add just a touch of pure cranberry juice on the top so it floats like blood.

Well, whenever a drink has lime and coconut, I always think of that song about the doctor. And most pear nectar is made from Bartlett pears. So I would call it the Dr. Bartlett.

Wow, sounds like a great combo (food and drink).

I suppose you could derive something from the "Lime and the Coconut" song . . . only I can't remember all the lyrics without looking them up . . . . .

Ah yes -- there's even the Dr. here:

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another, she paid it for a lime.
She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut,
Called the doctor, woke him up, and said,
"Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

"Now let me get this straight;
You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
You put the lime in the coconut,
called your doctor, woke him up, and said,
'Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?'

You put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both down,
You put the lime in the cocount, you're such a silly woman!
Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both together,
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning."

Lime-o-nade?

Sour pear 'o nuts

Pears seem kind of autumn-like to me in contrast to the summeriness of the coconut and lime. How about Indian Summer?

We had a fab dinner last night as well. It included cheese tortellini and a tomato bacon sauce, salad, and this awesome pepper cheese bread I picked up on the way home with the bottle of Barbera. Yummy! Tonight is the kids fave, cream of chicken on rice with brocolli. Not fancy, but when Bink is eating, I'm happy.

Pears and male sexuality and passion have an historical thing goin' on. Add in lime and coconut... I'd call it a wanton embrace.

I'm really bad at naming things (except for my cats) so I have nothing to offer. Sounds delicious though.

I can't top any of those names already suggested. Clever clever bloggers. Cloudy piss might very well be my favourite.
