Here’s a cocktail that happened kind of by itself. Most of my favourite ones usually do.
I’m calling it Bob Marley’s “Sit Down, Shut up” cocktail. But when you say it you have to sing the name to the tune of “Get up Stand up”.
Sit down, Shut up
3 oz Marley’s Mellow Mood mango drink
1 oz Silent Sam Vodka
1 oz Cointreau
Dash of lime juice (optional, but it helps balance the sweetness of the Cointreau and mango)
Stir with ice and serve in a martini glass. Flop into a comfy chair and drink in silence. Enjoy the peace and calm.
Note: Marley’s mellow mood drink contains natural ingredients, like chamomile and valerian root, intended to relieve tension, stress and may cause drowsiness. Mixing with alcohol is not exactly recommended if you plan to dance the night away. It’s like the opposite of a Red Bull and vodka cocktail. I would probably only make this drink as a nightcap after a long stressful day and be looking for my bed shortly after….hopefully with a sleepy grin on my face 🙂
