Go Cubs Go

I'm a Cubs fan. On a recent trip to Chicago to watch a game, we opted to stay at a friends house and drink instead of enjoying the expensive Chicago nightlife. I think city folk tend to want to impress their country bumpkin visitors with mysterious concoctions they think we can't get in these parts. I'm fine with that because on this particular trip I was introduced to the world's easiest pina colada.

Rum--My host used Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Lime Rum because he felt like coconut rum would make it too coconutty. I disagree. I think there is no such thing as too coconutty. I would use my favorite summer drink rum, Malibu Coconut rum.  I also think it would be good with a chunk of pineapple and a maricino cherry or two as a garnish. The Cubs glass was a nice touch.

I've been waiting for the Cubs to string together a couple of wins before I shared this post. Needless to say I've been waiting for some time. Drinking helps when you're a Cubs fan.


  1. Love that Cubs glass! I just bought a t-shirt with that exact picture on the front! Go Cubs!

    (p.s. this is Shandy)

  2. I figured it was you Shandy. Hey this weekend I plan to write all about Shandys--the drink.
