Fruity concoction No. 327

That glass is so ugly it is awesome

We put our heads together and tried to come up with a clever name for this drink and … nothing. So you tough readers (what are we Austen and have to call you gentle?) are welcome to help us out. What’s in it for you? How about our eternal gratitude? Hmm, better just jot down the recipe.

Beverage title should go here

  • 6 ounces pineapple juice (sweetened, unsweetened take your pick)
  • juice from two limes
  • juice from one orange
  • 1/2 ounce of triple sec
  • 3 ounces rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces cognac

Mix ingredients in shaker with ice and strain into two glasses of your choice. (We chose one of grandma’s juice glasses.) Garnish with pineapple, lime or orange wedge.

  1. too funny. love it. i am so mesmerized by the awesomeness of that tumbler that i’m at a loss for words. πŸ˜‰

  2. ChefMom says:

    My grandma had those exact glasses! I love it! I’m at a loss for names for the drink (too funny – I couldn’t come up with a name for tonight’s dinner post either), but I’m sure it would knock me on my a*$!

  3. joshuafagans says:

    Sounds good to me, except for the fact that I don’t have pineapple juice in the house tonight!

  4. rutheh says:

    Hawaiian Vacation in a Glass? Love the retro glass.

  5. TasteFood says:

    “Grandma’s Juice” looks perfect for the heat right now!

  6. Ugly glasses are the BEST vehicle for pretty drinks, or even plain H2o – I collect odd glasses. My most recent find were three green leaded glass goblets ($0.25 each), and I love them! Oh, and great recipe πŸ™‚

  7. Okay you know I’m not a drinker but I came up with a name out of nowhere.. I call this drink the “Quirky 10”. I call it that because of you and Katherine’s spontaneity and the fact that both of you are such a wonderful couple that created this drink. I can’t wait to see what name you get.. it’ll be great

  8. Think that after one of these delicious drinks IΒ΄d be unable to remember my own name let alone what itΒ΄s called…!

  9. That glass is amazing. You could do a crazy play on words from your Austen comment by calling it the “Genteel Austen”. Because the idea that Jane Austen would go near a fun Southern drink is ridiculous. (And I use the term Southern rather loosely). Or, you could just call it “Awesomeness in a Glass”.

  10. What about a “GK Special”

  11. gisellecagli says:

    Excellent!! I am definitely going to try this!!!!

  12. myblogject says:

    Very summery. Got any ideas to sub the pineapple though as a certain girl I live with hates the stuff

  13. Charles says:

    Nice – take out all the alcohol and you’ve got a winner! πŸ˜€ lol. No no, I’m not a big drinker (not a huge fan of the taste) but this is looking very refreshing right about now!

  14. Caroline says:

    That glass is awesome on all accounts, and your caption made me chuckle. Tooty fruity? Ha! I have no idea. Looks great though.

  15. How about “The Fugly Glass Delight!” πŸ™‚

  16. haha I l I like Carolines suggestion!

  17. banbamama says:

    I love the glass. very retro! How about calling it A Bitter Twist?

  18. SimpleP says:

    Sounds really good! How about Hawaiian Slam (vs Spam)? Ha ha, I’m not good with names. Definitely sounds Hawaiian though.

  19. ChgoJohn says:

    I’ll just sit here, dreaming of sipping this cocktail on the shores of some tropical isle and leave the naming to your other, more clever readers.

  20. I drink pineapple juice all the time. Nothing like giving it a little kick. A great afternoon drink for on the patio. Can’t wait to try it.

  21. Muzzy Daud says:

    I love this drink! Looks amazing.

    By the way, I have a new post up about embarrassment, it’s humorous and satirical but also analytical, I would greatly appreciate your comments or feedback.

    Thanks, Muzzy

  22. Greg, you are funny! I love the grandma juice glass comment! Reminds me of my husband’s 93 year old grandma, she has juice glasses with snowmen on them! It’s kind of funny when you are sipping wine from a snowman juice cup in the middle of summer!
    My uncle Bruno loves cognac straight-up, so how about we name your drink “Bruno in Hawaii”! πŸ™‚

  23. nrhatch says:

    Sounds great . . . what about Rummy in the Tummy? Or Rum Tum Tummy?

  24. This is kind really of close to a drink that was popular at the bar I worked at, “surfer on acid” at least how we made it. It was yummy this must be amazing!

  25. Tiff says:

    I’d call it Downright Good because that’s how it looks to me. Yes, I realize no one will ask me to rewrite any Red Lobster or Applebees catchy drink menus in the near future. At least you wouldn’t lose any dignity ordering it, unlike Bahama Mamas.

  26. rsmacaalay says:

    What does 327 means, I feel its something like soup number 5. LOL

  27. Oh I am so bad at coming up with names! how about PLO delight..
    ok ok I’m leaving

  28. Andi Winslow says:

    how about a Hawaiian Twist…..that just came off the top. Nice glass I think I have seen those before, guess I am showing my 50 plus yrs. But I am wondering if you have heard from Alison “Happy domesticity” I feel that I have lost a best friend? She is my biggest fan……..Let me know please.. Thank you Andi

  29. How about “Grandma’s Tonic.”

  30. Maureen says:

    Rufus, if I had more than one of these I’d call it “Under the Table”

    It looks divine! πŸ™‚

  31. Haha, that glass is fantastic.

  32. Hmm πŸ™‚ I have two options to offer: Rum Cobbler or Tropical Twister haha!

  33. I’ll happily take Grandma’s juice glass off your hands, especially if it comes in a set πŸ™‚
    Name for your delicious sounding, summer lovin’ pineappley lime infused goodness? No idea.

  34. How about “Punch in the Face” Gettit? Rum punch… πŸ˜€

  35. I seriously like that glass. πŸ™‚

  36. P. Graham says:

    This def seems like my type of drink!

  37. ....RaeDi says:

    The glass is….you can drink from it and after one of these you don’t care what the glass looks like…. Sounds good, but you know, it is nice to see something different, I like it….RaeDi
