CreatureCreature From the Black Lagoon

No movie monster deserves a summery green drink more than The Creature; when you’re ready to entertain friends at the seaside or relaxing near your favorite lagoon, our cocktail is a perfect accompaniment.

The Brazilian locale of the movie makes Cachaça the obvious choice, and we were careful to include a “black lagoon” feature.

To an iced shaker, add:

2 ounces Cachaça (we enjoy http://www.LeblonCachaca.com)
2 ounces Midori (www.midori-world.com)
1 ounce Cruzan Coconut Rum (www.cruzanrum.com)
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce pineapple juice

1 ounce dark spiced Rum (we prefer http://www.krakenrum.com)

Shake VIOLENTLY! for a good 30 seconds (we demand a well-shaken cocktail). Strain into a large rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Set the reamed lime half in the ice as a bowl and fill that with the Kraken or other dark rum. Add a straw and enjoy.

The vegetal nature of the Cachaça offsets the Midori and makes a clean and refreshing drink with a hint of Tiki influence. Just don’t go swimming alone!

Always drink responsibly; always drink well.
