Funky Cold Medina

Day 350

Funky Cold Medina
2 shots out of 5

Can I just tell you that I was thinking about how far I've come with my blog today and realized that I only have sixteen more days left of my year?  Sixteen, that's two days more then two weeks, WOW.  That is kind of amazing to me because I vividly remember making my sixteenth cocktail, The Dirty Grinch.  I remember thinking that it would be an eternity until I actually had sixteen days left.......and here we are!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  I found this cocktail at Hampton Roads Happy Hour.  Unfortunately I didn't like tonight's cocktail as much as I liked my sixteenth cocktail, but you can't win them all.  This recipe says that you can stir in the cranberry juice if you would like, but it's your choice.  STIR IT IN!  No choice, it must be stirred.  Stirring it in will insure that you will be making less funny faces after each sip.  I totally remember this song being over-played on the radio growing up......but I can't say that I like the cocktail.

Here is the recipe for a Funky Cold Medina:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 1 oz Southern Comfort
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
In a shaker, add ice and the first three ingredients above.  Shake well and dump your cocktail and ice into a good sized cocktail glass.  Pour the cranberry juice on top and choose whether you want to stir it in or not, I HIGHLY recommend you stirring it in.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Well Tone Loc, here's to song that reminds me of my younger years and a cocktail that will make me forget.
