What do we know Mr. Morgenthaler for? Well, there’s his blog, which I’ve already linked to twice so I won’t do again. There are his videos which I’m too lazy to look up right now, and there’s his near-infamous infatuation with the Monteleone’s pool.
So a drink named after him needed a couple of things:
- Something he likes and/or shills
- To remind people of suntan lotion
- Swimming pool-esque look
2 ounces Boca Loca cachaca
2 ounces coconut water
1 ounce blue curacao
1 drop – 1 dash sake (depending on how vinegar it is)
Stir with ice and strain into a glass.
I have to thank Ms. Sergi for the sake idea; I bought some today for another cocktail (heheheheh) and she suggested it to help bring it together. The one I’m using (Fudo Myoo junmai gingjo sake) is rather soft, so I used a dash, but a harder one might want only a drop.
Jeffrey, I couldn’t resist. See you in two weeks.
