We were going to do a Cinco de Mayo Drink, but felt this would be more appropriate today. There are a number of drinks named the Brass Monkey. We think the Beastie Boys would have been drinking this recipe, equal parts mart liquor and orange juice. Not for the faint of heart.
We like the variation below too.
Brass Monkey Cocktail
- 1 oz vodka
- ½ oz light rum
- ½ oz Galliano
- 4 oz orange juice
Combine the vodka, rum and orange juice into an old fashioned glass filled with ice and stir well. Pour the Galliano over the back of a teaspoon into the old fashioned glass so that the Galliano floats on top.
