Cocktail recipe--Cookie Monster


I have it in my head to create a cocktail for each Penguins player by the end of the season, unless somebody begs me to stop.  (No way can I do it every game.)   I created one for Chris Bourque last night.  This one's better by far, of course.  It is the one I actually drank.

I wanted to make something blue to match the blue jerseys.  Plus, Matt Cooke deserves to be celebrated for his two goals!  The blue color and Cooke's name came together when I named this drink.  It looks a bit fussy, but essentially, it's a Sonic Ocean Water with rum, something I often enjoyed when I lived close to a Sonic.   I added a lower-calorie option because most hockey fans don't have the metabolisms of professional hockey players.

Cookie Monster:


1 shot light rum
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon sugar or Splenda blend
1 teaspoon imitation coconut extract
3 drops blue food coloring, give or take
1 12-ounce can cold lemon-lime soda
ice

Mix water and sugar in a small bowl. Stir to dissolve. Add coconut extract and food coloring to the syrup. Stir well.

Combine blue syrup with lemon-lime soda. Add rum. Stir. Pour over ice into tumbler.
