The Jerk – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

It’s almost time to howl! There’s definitely a weird vibe that runs through the crowd on a full moon. I remember years ago when I was in the restaurant business serving cocktails. A full moon would evoke all kinds of strange behavior in people…and then you add alcohol to the mix and it would get down right unbelievable at times!

Today we are adding Friday the 13th to the full moon phenomenon so hang on, it could be a wild night! Just in case you want to guarantee it, The Jerk Cocktail will add the finally ingredient to your evening or will be exactly what you need to wash away your wacky day!

It’s yummy especially on a hot summer day!! I had it for the first time last Friday night at Minnie’s in Modesto, CA and it helped to ease the 100+ degree weather. I’m from Modesto and lived through many hot summers in my youth but I’m just not used to it anymore. The locals swear by this drink and they were not wrong! I had a couple to keep me cool but not enough to make me a “Jerk”! 

Full moon Friday 13th 

How to make The Jerk (or my best guess from personal taste tests so far):

Ingredients:

1 oz Gold Rum
1 oz Light Rum
2 Tbs Grenadine (I used Organic Volcano Grenadine Burst from BevMo)
4 oz Pineapple juice
4 oz Orange juice
2 oz Finest Call Strawberry Puree (BevMo)
1 oz 151 Rum, in the straw

In a blender fill with about 20 ice cubes and add all ingredients except the 151 Rum. The shot of 151 goes in the straw. Blend until smooth with no ice chunks. Needs to be very thick!

Pour into a glass and insert the straw. Pour the 151 Rum into the straw and serve. Depending on how fast you want to become a “Jerk”, you can sip the 151 Rum straight out of the straw or swirl it into your drink. It’s up to you!
