First, I’d like to welcome the newest members to Craig’s Friday Cocktail List™. Hi.
Next, we need to cover some language issues with today’s drink.
“La Bomba” is a tequila cocktail.
“La Bamba” was a 1958 #1 single by Richie Valens (you saw the movie).
“L.A. Bambi” is Adiz “Bambi” Benton of the VH-1 reality series Basketball Wives L.A.
“Что бомба” is Russian for “that bomb”, which is what many thought the meteor hit was.
I’ve had this drink. Recently. It’s a good.
1.5 oz Tequila
.75 oz Cointreau (as always, if you’re cheap like me, use Triple Sec)
1.5 oz Pineapple Juice
1.5 oz Orange Juice
Put 4-5 ice cubes in a martini shaker
Add the liquids
Strain into cocktail (martini) glass
Garnish a cherry
I’d like to give a Public Service Announcement about our good friend “Tequila”:
1. Don’t buy cheap tequila. Ever.
Somewhere there is a college student that needs an inexpensive drunk night (and possible walk of shame the next morning) and you are stealing his/her bottle.
2. Don’t use super-premium tequila to make cocktails.
It’s a waste of good sipping tequila and it doesn’t make much of a difference.
3. Before you start making any tequila cocktails, make sure you have enough.
Changing the quality, type, even brand of tequila during the course of an evening will have a bad effect on you later.
