Drinkies—A Spirited View of the World

Raymond and Rosa toasted their nuptials with this blue penguin drink. Raymond is a penguin gourd who has been passed around the ‘hood at Christmas white elephant gift exchange for the last 15 to 18 years. He’d been single too long. So it really was time for a wedding. Rosa is a mail order bride. Hand made by yours truly. The wedding was spectacular. There were flowers, a minister, a professional photographer, cake and (of course) the signature drink called The Penguin. The Penguin is a mixture of vodka, banana liquor, blue curacao, lemon lime mix, and 7-Up. Yum! Tastes like lemonade! It’s really a cocktail but we all did shots to toast to the happy couple. OK, we did several shots. We must have done a lot to actually marry two gourds. But any excuse for cake I always say!
