HOW DID IT COME TO THIS? I started college with a promising career as a paleobiologist, and now I'm sitting at home, watching Veronica Mars and trying to invent drinks. [sigh] All that said, I think this one is pretty genius:
The Bluth Banana
2 shots Reyka vodka
1 shot Creme de Cacao
1 shot amaretto
1 medium banana, sliced
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend it, dawg. Pour into a highball glass, or else split it between two rocks glasses if you have a special friend.
Says fiancee Calley, "It's making my mouth numb." That's about as high praise as I can imagine. And she doubted me at every turn, demanding to know what I was making. "It's my job," she replies. Also true. Plus, she named it.
