A long time ago, we put together a little black book of cocktail recipes for our friends and family for Christmas. It was elementary, a bit amateurish, and some of the recipes are, as the boys would say back it the day, ‘hard on the parts.’ It was also a lot of fun to put together. Now that we are a lot older, smarter, and better looking, we like to stun you with outstanding unique cocktails illustrated with top-of-the-line photographic excellence. Sadly, it has come to our attention that not all the Lounge Lizards can pour the cocktails we post because they are not privy to the contents of the Lounge. Point taken. Therefore, we dipped back into our little black book for an original that you can all pour and will keep you partying all night. Not only is this drink one of our truly favorite originals (we still pour it all the time), it’s the only drink in the little black book whose recipe was wrong! Why? Well, M.J. pointed out that we forgot the Mountain Dew!
Crash Cart Cocktail
2 parts Desert Island Long Island Ice Tea Cocktail Mix
1 part orange juice (we use Simply Orange)
1 part Red Bull (or your favorite energy drink)
Splash of fresh-squeezed lime juice
Splash of Mountain Dew
Spash of 7up
Combine all ingredients in a vessel of your choice. The original Triple C was invented in a hurricane glass. Because this is made whopatooli-style, stir instead of shake.
