La Bomba

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
Maraschino Cherry

Put 4-5 ice cubes in a martini shaker
Add the liquids
Shake vigorously
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.   
How bad?
