June Bug

It’s ‘Happy Hour’ here at The Random Memorandum, and today’s featured drink is the June Bug. I first tried this delicious concoction at TGI Friday’s (the place that serves the best fried green beans in town!).

There are several recipes that I have come across to create this sip of heaven, but this is the one I like best.

Let’s round up the usual suspects. We have Midori (a melon liqueur); Malibu rum (or any coconut flavored rum); banana liqueur; sweet and sour mix and pineapple juice.



Combine:
1 part Midori



1/2 part Malibu Rum



½ part Banana Liqueur



1 1/2 parts Sweet and Sour mix



2 parts Pineapple Juice



Fill shaker with ice...



...and shake.



Pour into glass.



Cheers!



...Ahhh (smacking of lips)

I don't drink but if I did I would drink a June Bug. That sounds absolutely delish. I'm going to give the recipe to my sister who is having a Cocktail Party next month. Love your glasses. Very chic!

Having made the effort to post all those pictures, this drink must be extra special. I could probably handle one of those, but I'm a vodka man myself. I have a wonderful device dating from the early '60s that gives hundreds of drink recipies in a sort of rolling format. I'll have to check if the June bug is one of them.

I prefer this recipe either topped off with seltzer or blended with ice. Otherwise its too sweet for me.
