Have another cocktail! The Pete is here today!

His Birthday is Monday!  So here is his gift...he gets to guest post for me!  Ha!

The Sis (Mommy Lisa to you all) has asked me- The Pete to slide a little Holiday cocktail story your way. Well I have spent many a holiday enjoying many different libations (as my High School English teacher called them)


 
Some of my favs are-

  • "Ho-Ho-Tini" 2 shots of your favorite Vodka, 1 shot of Peppermint schnapps. Slide a candy cane in it for a fun garnish.
  • "Christmas in your Mouth" 1 part GoldSchlager-1 part vodka- add cranberry Juice 
  • "Black Santa" 1 part vodka, 1 part Kahlua, 1 part peppermint schnapps

 
Now all of those are great but do not have a story- I have a cocktail I invented on a holiday- New year’s Eve-Eve (12/30) it’s called "The Bluto"

True Story- this was 1991- My friends and I wanted to party in a hotel for new years- we found out they jacked the room rates on new year’s eve so one of us said- "let's just do it on new year’s eve-eve!" Since we were all young and just wanted an excuse to get together and drink, we all said- "let's do it!"

So we booked two rooms and a hotel and got A LOT of liquor and started in about 6pm on 12/30. We had several folks drinking and staying but a few that came and went during the festivities.

At the midpoint I could not decide what to drink next. I stared at the table o' booze and just started pouring- I added a couple slashes of soda and drank- IT WAS DELICIOUS!

I had to quickly piece together what I made- as to not forget because of drunkenness. It was 2 shots each of vodka-rum-gin-whiskey with coke and sprite to fill the glass.

As I was enjoying my THIRD one- someone asked me what I was drinking- I looked at the TV and "Animal House" was on- it was the scene where Belushi- as Bluto- is downing the bottle of jack

 
I looked at them and said- "it's a Bluto and it's delicious!"

And so The Bluto was born!
Now later that night- due to the jibber jabber of some folks who had left- our festivities were busted and we were booted from the hotel. That gave birth to our now group famous exclamation- "DRINKIN'!"

 
But that is another story!

I think I may need a ho-ho-tini right now.

But I'm not strong enough for even one Bluto. I'm just not that big...

Hilarious! A Bluto? I think that's similar to what I drank one night when I was still not legal.

My mother still talks about the next morning.

I just had to pop over after your comment at Cheeseboys made me laugh out loud.... really - not just LOL, but laugh OUT LOUD!

(and you're welcome to visit my blog... but I'm in lame-land this week... I promise to return from my hiatus with something funnier!)

Your comment at my blog certainly was hilarious. Thank you.

This Blunto stuff sounds like where dreams are made.

This was a riot! I think I am going to have to try a "Christmas in your mouth". I think just looking at a "Bluto" would make me drunk...I am such a light weight these days :)

I would have been in the ER.

I'm not the greatest at math, but two shots of EACH? That's 8 shots per drink. Ahhhhhhhh! My head hurts just thinking about it! Oh yeah. Definitely ER for me. Hilarious story though! Love the Animal House naming.
