Saturday suggestion: The DNR
The fine gentlemen over at the Home Plate made me a new drink to review for the site last night. If I must …
Still interested? Read on.
So last night, Peels the Bartender shook me up a couple DNRs. For those of you who haven’t A) worked in health care or B) had a dying friend, DNR is the order on a patient’s info sheet that means Do Not Recussitate.
The creator of this drink is actually Glen, another Home Plate fellow who apparently dreams up night-altering drinks in his spare time. The guys told me you always have to make two DNRs because it’s too strong a drink to consume alone. So I beseeched my friend Ryan to sample the cocktail with me. He was a good sport about it. (Sorry, Ry.)
It’s served in small enough a glass that you can sip it or shoot it. Thank GOD I didn’t shoot it, because I would have ended up in jail. Or in a ditch. Or in a ditch with a cop, I don’t know. I hadn’t really planned to get drunk last night, but I guess the DNR didn’t care about my plans.
Here’s the recipe, courtesy of Glen.
Proceed with caution.
1 oz blueberry vodka
1 oz strawberry vodka
1/2 an orange
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
Splash of cranberry juice OR grenadine (I had grenadine)
It’s a little sweet and very acidic for my taste, but I mean, if a dude bought me one, I wouldn’t send it back. I just wouldn’t advise having more than, oh, two of these. Certainly not three. 10 a.m. found me throwing up in The Berkshire Eagle bathroom. Thanks, Glen!
