3.5 shots out of 5
OK, so tonight I don't have a "theme" song in my head, just a song. Good 'ole Blue Eyes is singing his song in my head as I enjoy tonight's cocktail, Lady Luck. Can I just say that I am REALLY enjoying writing this blog! OK, so yes it's fun to get to have a cocktail a night (and have a reason why I am doing it), but it's fun to try all of these different liqueurs, alcohols and juices that I honestly would NEVER have ever tried on my own! Way to break me out of the vodka cran and rum and coke shell!! I love it!!
I gave Lady Luck 3.5 shots out of 5 tonight. This cocktail is a bit syrupey sweet to me. A bit too much, but not enough to make me not finish the cocktail if I was to order it at a bar. I think it would just make me finish it quicker then normal so that I could order a safer cocktail for myself afterwords. For those of you who do enjoy the sweeter syrupey cocktails, you just might enjoy this one.
Here is the recipe for Lady Luck:
- 3/4 shot malibu rum
- 3/4 shot chambord
- 3/4 shot banana liqueur
In a shaker add ice, malibu rum, chambord and banana liqueur. Shake it up real well to get your cocktail mixed and cold. Strain your cocktail into a chilled martini glass and enjoy.

Here's to a great singer of his time, Frank Sinatra! Cheers to you 'ole Blue Eyes!
