All right, snow bunnies. Some of you are reveling in the winter weather we’ve had, and some of you are crying yourselves to sleep under an electric blanket. Either way, you deserve a drink.
Bonefish Grill to the rescue.
Located in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center at 11525 Cantrell, the restaurant has hooked us up with a tropical beverage to warm even the coldest of readers. Enjoy.
Wild Orchard Hawaiian Martini
- 2 oz. tropical flavored rum (preferred coconut or guava flavor, but use whatever you like!)
- 3/4 oz. coconut water
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup
- 1/4 oz. POM Wonderful
- 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
- 3/4 oz. pineapple juice
Combine all the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orchid for some tropical flair!
Tips from the bartender:
- Having a party? Turn this into a fun summer party punch by increasing the volume level on the ingredients, then place in a large punch bowl, chill with ice and float orchids on top!
- Impress your friends with your bartending skills by muddling some fresh pineapple instead of using pineapple juice. Then garnish with a pineapple wedge on the side of the glass.
