Welcome to NC!
The Palmetto State…
by the way you must watch the movie “Palmetto” by Volker Schlondorf (available in the U.S. “a juicy film noir” (NYT)
for that fancy red feather to hold the peach cube in your coctail
We’ve made good time on the road up north. Passed through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and stopped in Virginia to spend the night there. The dogs pretty much slept through the 11 hour-long drive.
We stopped for a stretch, grabbed some food. In one of the rest areas a Black Vulture stalked the dogs. I had to leash them because they wanted to catch the big bird. I wonder why these southern Oligoceneans ( in Orlando the alligators and here these antiquated birds) are fixated on the Pumis.
scarry black vulture in the rest area stalking the Pumis, yuck!
what a ghostly rest area just before sundown with that crazy Black Vulture. I had to leash the dogs.
We got to our motel pretty late after a series of closed or “temporarily no credit cards accepted” stations. Surprise surprise, our reservation has not come trough, but we were lucky enough to get a room anyway.
This morning back on the road again. Nasty weather around Washington D.C. heavy rain, road constructions and accidents. While Marika was driving during the long bumper to bumper traffic, I came up with my Eukanuba Commemorative Cocktail.
Colors like Pink and Blue are fundamental and it also has to somehow designate some of the states we’ve driven through like peach from Georgia, the Cardinal from Virginia or some moonshine from North Carolina. Drink it with a palmetto leaf hat on your head from South Carilina. Cheers!
Your Eukanuba Commemorative coctail…ok replace the cherry with a wedge of pink grapefruit and add the chunk of peach on the red feather. Do not forget the ice cubes and the ground nutmeg!
So here is my Eukanuba Commemorative Coctail creation (have not tried it yet.)
2 parts L’Orange Grey Goose Vodka (orange for Florida)
1 part Broadslab Rum (Legal moonshine from North Carolina)
1 part of Blue Curacao (for the Eukanuba blue floor color)
a pinch of ground nutmeg ( for its psychoactive/deliriant effects of myristicin)
one small wedge of pink grapefruit on the bottom of the glass (Eukanuba pink)
a one cubic inch chunk of peach (Georgia) on a clean red feather of a Cardinal (the bird of Virginia) the feather can be fake submerged in the cotail.
served in a wide cocktail glass with two ice cubes.
Enjoy your hangover under your Palmetto hat.
The Palmetto hat I recommend for this coctail. It is rather more like a helmet in case you have a bigger sip than you can handle
