Two of my closest friends I have made since finishing college and starting life outin the real world introduced me to this drink. My first happy hour after work the girls took me to a great spot in Hartford called Salute and raved about the “Jacuzzi.” Salute has some pretty great specials and an awesome champagne bar but after hearing the hype of the‘cuzzi I had to go with it. The drink totally lived up to my expectations and since I’ve never seen it anywhere else, it’s a given that we will all order it whenever we make it for happy hour.
Since then it’s been tough to get to Salute as often as we’d like. If you were reading yesterday, you know we committed to having a monthly Sunday dinner and this Sunday it’s my turn to host. I bet you can guess what cocktails I’m serving, yup- my interpretation of the Jacuzzi aka the Jafluzzi. This is a drink recipe you will want to keep. Just be careful they’re dangerous…and x-rated.
1 oz X rated liquor (a french vodka flavored blood orange, mango and passion fruit)
1/2 oz pineapple rum
1/2 oz orange juice
top with champagne
Cheers! Enjoy the weekend!
