Bahama MamaWhere: Patrick Leahys Irish Pub, 2345 Whitney Avenue, Hamden
Ingredients:: Light rum, dark rum, Malibu coconut rum, orange juice and pineapple juice.
Even though summer is the perfect time to experiment with new, tropical cocktails, all of that taste-testing can go right to your head. You may end up skipping over the relaxed, buzzed feeling and crash right into the Ill have a water please feeling.
So if you're craving a summery drink and want to avoid getting too loopy too soon, order the Bahama Mama. The drink evokes a tropical summertime vibe, hence the name. But the three different kinds of rum in the drink are perfectly proportioned - not too strong, not too weak. Bahama Mama is an excellent introduction to a night of fun.
