Ninja Turtle Cocktail

Day 39


Ninja Turtle
4.5 shots out of 5


Ding, Ding, Ding another winner!!  Thanks again Fire Wench!!  I had all of the ingredients for the Ninja Turtle, so I figured I'd give it a shot!  Yum!!

I have to admit that when I first started straining this cocktail into my glass I got a little scared.....because of it's neon-ey green color.  I have to say, do NOT let the color fool you!  This is a good cocktail!!  It kind of has a creamy taste/after-taste.  It's kind of weird that it has that because you're not expecting it at all, but it's definitely weird in a GOOD way!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  The Ninja Turtle is even husband approved!  I have to admit that ever since I decided that I was going to make it tonight, I have been singing the theme song to "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" over and over again in my head!  And now I will say "You're Welcome", because I'm sure about 90% of you are now singing that song as well!

Here is the recipe for the Ninja Turtle:

  • 1 shot Malibu rum
  • 1 shot melon liqueur
  • 1 shot pineapple juice
In a shaker add ice, Malibu rum, melon liqueur and pineapple juice.  Shake it up well so that all of the ingredients mix up good.  Strain it into bud vase if you have one (like mine pictured below), or even a martini glass and enjoy!!


Here is a photo of the end result:

To those of you who used to watch the cartoon, have seen the movies or just know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are, Cheers to you!!

  2. Add some whipped cream to it, shake it up, and you have a Scooby Snack (Which you can also top with a little whipped cream). It's our go-to when we can't think of anything else to make.

    We had what we call "Shot-a-palooza" this Friday night trying out new recipes with different flavored vodkas. Wish I could remember how productive it was. = \

  3. I'm going to have to pick up a bottle of Midori - you have several cocktails that interest me that use it. And now just the name of this one pushes me over the edge :)

    1. Oh good! Let me know what you think of them once you try them! I have to admit the fact that the Midori bottle is bright green used to make get a little scared and wonder how something that bright could be good, not anymore!!

    2. The Ninja turtle is definitely bright green :) It tastes good, but a little too sweet for my tastes. Of course, I like scotch and bourbon, so it's not too surprising :) I'm still going to try some of the other cocktails that use Midori, though.

    3. Yes, some of the sweeter cocktails aren't for everyone. Sometimes I really need to be in the mood for a sweet cocktail. Glad you're going to try more cocktails with the Midori though!

  4. FireWench, a Scooby Snack, mmmmm that sounds good! I think the whipped cream will add to it's yummy-ness definately!

    Haha, you're hilarious! Actually a "shot-a-palooza" sounds like fun!! I've be thinking about making a seperate tab on my blog for different shots, what do you think?
