Let’s Play the Secret of Monkey Island, Final Part


We last saw our soon to be pirate and hero, Guybrush Threepwood, facing down the villainous ghost pirate LeChuck, who was in the process of forcing himself on the lovely Governor of Melee Island, Elaine Marley.
Threepwood had just issued his ultimatum to LeChuck and was preparing to soak the specter in sarsaparilla:

Cocktail of the Week: Margarita Fizz

Margarita Fizz

Summer’s here, isn’t it? Well, it sure has hell felt like summer yesterday out at the Cosumnes River Preserve. Or maybe it’s just the drought? With the coming of the long, hot dog days of summer my mind turns to margaritas. Delicious, delicious margaritas. But, I’ve already covered those, many, many times. So what to do? Come up with my own take on the signature drink! Though, if someone else hasn’t done this before I’d be truly shocked. My contribution to the world of mixology is the Margarita Fizz. Simply make a margarita in a Collins glass and top it off with Squirt soda. Yes, yes I am a visionary…

Turns out this is delicious! Also, I don’t have to wait to chill the mixture or use a blender or do any of that. Just add everything together and stir! If I had a poolside I’d be drinking these while relaxing there! Or maybe I’m inordinately fond of Squirt soda… Anyway, if you’re looking to enjoy a cool, bright, fizzy drink this summer you could do a lot worse than the Margarita Fizz.
