Last night, I dreamt of Hawaii...Maybe it was a Hawaiian night on TV with Israel Kamakawiwo'ole gently humming in the background or the fact that Anthony Bourdain was cruising the streets of Waikiki on No Reservations or even the Weather Channel talking about the huge swells currently hitting the islands. Whatever is was, worked! I have Aloha on the brain!!! All of a sudden I want to eat macaroni salad, spam, ahi tuna, poi and then wash it all down with a Mai Tai or Zombie. Well, if you don't have 5 different rums on hand, try a yummy Pearl Harbor. Everyone has vodka on hand, right?
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 2/3 ounce of melon liqueur
- 1 ounce of pineapple juice
Shake the ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with any fruits from your kitchen, cocktail umbrellas, pink plastic swords, etc...
