As you saw last season, we like to come up with a theme to help make the typically agonizing USF basketball season a little bit more enjoyable. (Or at the very least, make it feel like the season is going by faster.) This year, we decided that instead of depressing everyone with horrendous music, we'd try to decrease the pain basketball season will cause us.
USF Basketball Mixology 2011-12 begins now!
Remember kids, 21 means 21. And enjoy responsibly. And don't drink and drive, or drink then drive. Especially after some of the more hopeless games on the schedule.
Tonight's game, against Vermont, gives us a handy way to ease into the theme while also incorporating an obvious regional ingredient. Here's the recipe, found on TheBar.com, which could well end up being the official Web site of USF Basketball Mixology.
1 oz. Pampero Especial Rum (25 oz. per bottle)
.75 oz. fresh lime juice
.25 oz. maple syrup
2 dash(es) angostura bitters
6 sprig(s) mint
- Muddle all but one sprig of mint and bitters in a shaker.
- Add Pampero Especial Rum, lime and maple syrup.
- Let sit for one minute.
- Shake hard.
- Strain over fresh ice, into a double old-fashioned glass and garnish with a sprig of mint.
