With all this sun, an umbrella helps
Ever try cougar milk? What about Aspen crud? Apparently these are time-tested backcountry cocktails that give skiers and mountaineers a refreshing dose of heat, calories, and of course, booze.
Lou Dawson details them on his blog, www.wildsnow.com today.
But jeez, with weather in the high 60s on the Front Range, I'm thinking about drinks with little paper umbrellas.
My favorite is the pina colada, which has had its reputation dragged through the mud by decades of cheap, artificially flavored mixes.
Here is a recipe for a true pina colada:
Mix equal parts light rum, pineapple juice and FRESH, from the nut, coconut milk. Serve on the rocks, in the coconut you have just hacked the top off. A paper umbrella is a must.
By the way, this is a great apres training drink for the Pikes Peak Ascent. Sign up is happening right now. Click here!
