L'il libation

Okay, I know I'm not supposed to be drinking any alchy-hol between now and Henley, but it turns out that cranberry juice with rum in it is really good. Really really good. Really really really good.

So I've decided that the benefits of the muscle-relaxing property of the rum (very good for my back) outweigh the detriments of the dehydrating effect. This is purely medicinal people, keep up now.

All this glorious concoction lacks is a proper name. Suggestions in the comments box. Best suggestion gets, i dunno, my undying admiration or some equally worthless shit. If there's already a name for rum and cranberry, I don't want to know about it.

I'll stop now.

The Internet Cocktail DataBase suggests two cocktails containing rum and cranberry. One is called a "Tabu Cocktail."

The other is called a "Pink Veranda", which sounds like a euphemism for something, but I can't imagine what...

I'm voting for rum and rouge. Because seriously.

Also, I've been drinking Grouse and Lemonade all fucking night. Here's to a winner!

When are you coming to visit me so we can drink together??

Agnostic Possom said...

I find Pissin' & Grinnin' to be most appropriate. Should work wonders for a UTI.

Timorous Beastie said...

I don't suppose "no more itchy cunt flaps" would be a winner at the bar.

Rum is what Pirates drink... there's got to be a pun in their somewhere...

give me a second...

On account of its beautiful hue, call it a Shiver Me Crimson.

I am deliberately ignoring the cystitis angle.

S.Vincent said...

I do really like "shiver me crimson" and if I could've came up with that myself I would have. So my vote is for that, but since I feel I should offer more suggestions as well, how about a "Sex in the Bog"

Chaucer's Itch said...

These are brilliant, people!

(Geordie, didn't I say that if the drink already had a name that I didn't want to know? Pay attention!)

Right now I'm really loving

Jamaican Quaker
Rum and Rouge
and Shiver Me Crimson

but I have to admit my absolute fav at the mo is Sex in the Bog. Reminiscent of Sex on the Beach, and a delightful play on the British use of "bog" as a euphamism for toilet.

Keep 'em comin' people!

Just call it a cranberry rowboat! or a merry berry pirate.

In the movie Jaws, Captain Quint, the grizzled shark hunter, gives Chief Brody a life lesson which I have never forgotten.

He said,
"Rum ain't drinkin,
it's survivin'."

wee crumberry

FirstNations said...

Sex in the Bog...thats the one!

Geosomin said...

I vote for Jah Love...

Tim Footman said...

Is it white rum (eg Bacardi) or the good stuff (Capt Morgan, etc)?

Chaucer's Itch said...

Nothin' but the Cap'n, Tim!

Sal said...
