Always a Parrothead … Toasting Bob Marley

Today I'm not at my desk and not blogging. Instead, I'm experiencing my 22nd Jimmy Buffet concert. Crazy, right?

My friend Kate & I, Parrothead tailgating 2007

In honor of Buffett, I'm not giving you a margarita recipe. Instead, I'm giving you a much prettier – and much more deadly – drink.

We vacationed in Negril, Jamaica in 2004 and 2005. (Someday, ask me about Hurricane Ivan.) While in Jamaica, Kevin discovered a shot called the Bob Marley. Here's how you make it:

  • 1/3 oz grenadine
  • 1/3 oz creme de menthe (green)
  • 1/3 oz 151 proof rum

Divide a tall shotglass into thirds. Fill the bottom third with
grenadine, the middle third with creme de menthe, and float the
151 in the top third. You're going for a layered look, so pour slowly. You might want to use a spoon to gently trickle the 151 over the top. Many bartenders will mix the 151 with banana liqueur to add a yellow color, giving you the rastafarian red, green, and yellow.

We've had these drinks as "Flaming" Bob Marleys, but in the interest of safety, I'm not giving you those instructions. Have a great Parrothead Thursday!
