Time to Take a Stand!

Which one would you choose?

Spam?

Today in 1937, the Hormel Foods Corporation introduced Spam the luncheon meat. I’ve yet to figure out what wine goes with it…perhaps Chateau de Budweiser?

Bikini?

In a more enlightened age, today in 1946, the bikini made its debut during an outdoor fashion show at the Molitor Pool in Paris (that would France – not Kentucky). Champagne would be my recommendation here…and more champagne!

It’s graduation day!

Today in 1942, Ian Fleming graduated from a training school for spies in Canada. You can’t make this stuff up.

Quotes of the day!

–          Film director and poet Jean Cocteau was born today in 1889. Mr. Cocteau gave us the utterly beautiful film; BEAUTY AND THE BEAST starring Jean Gabin. He also gave us; “Poetry is indispensable – if I only knew what for.” and “We must believe in luck. For how else can we explain the success of those we don’t like?”

–          Calvin and Hobbes’ best friend and creator Bill Watterson was also born today in 1958. “I’m not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.” I hear that…

Drink 4cast 4 2day

Champagne aside, there is another libation we can toast the bikini with;

Bikini Martini

1 oz. Coconut Rum

¾ oz. Opulent Vodka

1 oz. Pineapple Juice

1 dash Grenadine

Combine rum, vodka and pineapple juice in a shaker.

Shake till frothy.

Pour into a martini glass.

Add the grenadine in the middle.

Garnish with a slice of orange.

Now, which one did you choose and do I need to worry about you?

Cheers!
