Don’t Call Him “Shirley”

And yes, he is serious.

Actor Leslie Nielsen was born today in 1926. His “Shirley” line in the film “Airplane!” never fails to make me smile no matter how many times I see it.

My personal favorite Leslie Nielsen film would have to the science-fiction classic “Forbidden Planet”. However, my opinion could be biased by his lovely co-star in that film, Anne Francis. You can keep Robby the Robot.

Today in 1942 the first gold record was presented to Glenn Miller for his recording of “Chattanooga Choo Choo”. It seems appropriate to celebrate with a;

Choo Choo Cocktail

1 oz. Grays Peak Vodka

2 oz. Ron Diaz Coconut Rum

4 oz. Cranberry Juice

Half squeeze of Lemon

Shake all ingredients in a shaker with four cubes of ice.

Pour into a wide glass with sugar on the rim.

Sing! “There’s gonna be somebody waitin’ at the station…”
