Cocktail Of The Week: The Reformed Gibson
Today is Mel Gibson's birthday,(1) so it's fitting to do a temperance cocktail in his honor. I thought about doing something with a Gibson martini which uses pickled onions instead of olives, but since Mel Gibson swears he is turning over a new leaf, and since it is the start of a new year, I thought I would create The Reformed Gibson.
The Reformed Gibson
It's ingredients are:
2 ounces orange juice
2 ounces cranberry juice
1 ounce sweet and sour mix
1 teaspoon grenadine syrup
1 tablespoon triple sec
2 ounces pineapple juice
1 splash Sprite or any lemon-lime soda.
Combine ingredients in a shaker, serve in chilled martini glass and garnish with different fruits (to show you aren't biased).
"What do you think you're looking at, Splenda Tits?"
I was going to make the drink non-alcoholic, but since Mel has already slid on the slope a little, I thought I'd throw in the triple sec to ease him along so he doesn't go Cold (Wild) Turkey.
