I think we're getting a little stir crazy. We have 23 days before we leave and the monetorium is in full effect, so we're not going out. Sachi mentioned that we got a handy-dandy blender for our wedding and have some rum in the cabinet. So, we decided to make it a dark Seattle November Friday night at home- with Boat Drinks.
Everything we know about Boat Drinks, we learned from Stephen Gwyn's Boat Drinks page.
Boat drinks are drinks that are drunk on a boat. Or near a boat. Or while wishing you were on a boat. Or near someone who is wishing they were on a boat. They tend to be colourful, sometimes too colourful. They tend to have fruit in them. The tend to taste almost, but not quite, booze-less and they tend to pack a hidden wallop.
As a general (but not infallible) rule boat drinks have two main ingredients: Rum and A paper umbrella.
We call tonight "practice", sans paper umbrellas.
