Belly Up to TheBar.Com

13 Jul

We recently discovered a web site called Really nice site. It is extremely informative and is technically well done. We suggest you mark it as a favorite and visit it often when seeking inspiration for that next cocktail party. There is even a virtual bartender (“Jack”) to answer your questions or spin an entertaining tale while you enjoy your favorite beverage.

Here’s one of the recipes featured on the web site:


1.25 oz. Smirnoff No.21 Vodka

.25 oz. Captain Morgan Parrot Bay

Coconut Rum

.5 oz. pineapple juice

1 splash orange juice

2 slices orange

Fill a glass with ice

Add Smirnoff No.21 Vodka, Captain

Morgan Parrot Bay Coconut Rum,

pineapple juice, orange juice, & stir well

Garnish with orange slices
