Definitely my favorite segment to date. Thanks to Louie and Matt for their "safety services" and to the amazing WBIR crew that lets me get away with doing crazy stuff like this.

WTNZ Segment #39: Drinks for the Lake & Beach



Click to watch segment #39 from June 25, 2014: Drinks for the Lake and Beach

Mike's face-palming response to my "Baby Got Back" reference tells you all need to know about the clip, other than the fact that the Blue Chair Breezer is one tasty cocktail alternative to a Pina Colada. Here's how to make it:

Blue Chair Breezer
  • 2 ounces Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum
  • 1/2 ounce Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum
  • 1/2 ounce Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice (or one small can)
  • 1 dash Coco Lopez
  • Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass

WTNZ Segment #37: Rose Water Cocktail

This is a pretty easy cocktail to make that's a winner on taste and presentation. Perfect for parties! And if Belaire Rose is delicious enough for the Boss, then I recommend buying it by the case.

WTNZ Segment #36: Derby Drinks 2014

Mint Juleps are easy to make (and easier to drink), but leave it to me to forget the simplest recipes. Don't forget to muddle your cocktail before adding the ice! Ella promptly called me out on it, and the picture above is the face I make when I know I've screwed up. Live TV, folks!

And just for a reference, here's a comparison on what I looked like 2 years ago when I did a Derby segment, compared to today:

It was kind of tricky choosing questions that fit into the not-too-easy-but-not-impossible category for this segment. Moira and Abby were great sports as always.

This idea went viral a few weeks ago, and my talented wife Alycia deserves all the credit for tweaking (and perfecting) how to make these cool shot glasses made from chocolate chip cookies.
