They say it’s a curse to live in interesting times. I have to agree. As we lurch into year three of the Great Recession and my personal approaching fun-employment, I can’t help but hope that some good comes out of all this – like a future where Paris Hilton doesn’t get a TV show, where we all get affordable health care, where investment bankers live in daily fear of roving, torch-wielding mobs… A guy can dream, right?
This drink is definitely a balm for the times. Think an upside down pina colada that kicks you in the head like a mule with anger control issues. It’s a take two and I’ll call you in the morning.

2 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. Coco Lopez coconut cream
