04:18 am - Frozen Drink- Put The Lime In The Coconut
A drink perfect for closing out the summer.

Here is a little recipe that I came up with a few years ago. I was drive to work, as a bartender, when the song “Put the Lime in the Coconut” came on. I thought that was a great name for a drink. So, I went to work and came up with this.

Put The Lime In The Coconut
1/2oz. Malibu coconut or Parrot Bay Coconut Rum
1/2oz. Bacardi Limon Rum
1/2oz. Triple Sec
1/2oz. Rose’s Lime Juice
2-3oz. of Pina Colada Mix
1 cup of Ice
Blend until smooth
Garnish with a lime wedge and some shredded coconut if you have it.

I later sent this to Bartender Magazine and received a “CocktailRight” and got it published too.

09:52 pm - Recipe Request
My husband has a medical issue that one of the homeopathic remedies is curry or tumeric powder.

Do yall know any good recipes that use curry or tumeric powder? I did a curry rub on chicken and served it with a curry couscous in a box.

Also, I'm looking for a good creamy potato and leek soup. I tried one recipe and it didn't work, came out a brown shade and tasted off.
