Mango Margarita

We absolutely loved these frozen margaritas. We made them while cruising Thailand. They were perfect sundowners, enjoyed on deck surrounded by the beauty of the islands, hongs and emerald seas.

This is what I did for two Mango Margaritas…

Kelly’s ‘Brass Monkey’ Beer

First off this is not a beer. This is a ‘Brass Monkey’ cocktail which I shook the bejesus out of until, when poured, it had a frothy beer-like head and an amber hue, hence Brass Monkey Beer. Delicious.

I made this cocktail when we were anchored near “James Bond Island”, exploring the beautiful karsts and hongs in Phang Nga Bay, Thailand…. I know it should have been a martini, but heck there’s always time for that later.

Brass Monkey Beer is easy…

  1. Divide six ice cubes between two scotch glasses.
  2. Into a cocktail shaker add:

2 shot of dark rum (we used Captain Morgan)
2 shot of vodka
about one cup of orange juice
and a couple of ice cubes

3. Shake it vigorously for minute and pour into the two scotch glasses.

The result should be amber in colour and have a frothy head… Brass Monkey Beer!

Thorfinn’s Punch Cocktail

I made this delicious cocktail when I wanted to use up the left over juice in our fridge. We were anchored in Telaga, Langkawi and were preparing to leave for Thailand the next day. We were getting the chores done and it was hot. This refreshing cocktail was just perfect at the end of the day.

For two cocktails I mixed 1 cup of Guava juice with 1/2cup of apple juice, 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice and 3 shots of vodka.

I poured it over ice cubes and lime slices and topped with soda water.

 

Caipiroska

I have been searching everywhere in Batam for limes. I finally found some today. I can’t wait to have a nice fresh caipiroska! In Bali and on other islands while cruising Indonesia I have, usually, had no trouble finding fresh limes and our favourite lime flavoured treat is undoubtedly the CAIPIROSKA!

All I do is…

Wash and quarter two limes, place them in a cocktail glass with two teaspoons of brown sugar and, using a muddler, I squash the be-jesus out of them. I add two shots of vodka (naughty) and some ice. Voila! Ready to drink.

Refreshing, full of Vitamin C and a good use of local ingredients!
