OK Woofmutt,

I'm heading out to the liquer store right now to buy Pink Wink ingredients. I'll report my findings in the morning.

It's 7:39pm. I just poured a pair of Pink Winks for my wahine and I. After just a sip or two she whispered into my ear. I wont repeat what was said, but I'll just say that the Pink Wink is a big hit!

Mahalo Woofmutt!!

Neat to know! The Pink Wink has led to several people suggesting I start college funds for their unexpected offspring. But I tell 'em "If yer gonna play with fire you gotta learn to change a diaper."

This was my first "tiki central" recipe and it's fab! My husband (who thinks that I can't shake a cocktail to save my life) totally loved it as well! Thanks for sharing!!

There's a distant rumble coming from the far horizon and you know it's the thunderous sound of Cupid's Arrow Brigade in their Flying Hearts getting ready for the big V-Day run...And you should be getting ready too with plans of serving a drink inspired by that big heart shaped day: The Pink Wink Sweet & strong, it's great for couples, even better for lonely hearts!

Apparently I forgot to raise this post from the dead last year. Maybe I thought love was lost here? I have no idea.

But here it is so you can lay aside those Sunday paper ads for red undies and cheap flower and just plan to say I LOVE YOU! with a stop by the booze shop.






(Edited for clarity cuz it sounded like I told you to lay aside your Sunday underwear which was made of red paper. I only know one person on Tiki Central who wears red paper underwear on Sundays and I didn't want this post reading like it was a personal message to that person.)

Who can turn the world on with a smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you Pink Wink, and you should know it
With each tip and every little sip you show it

Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have a Pink Wink, why don't you make it?
You're gonna drink it all
Then into love you'll fall...




Those words can be clunkily sang to the tune of the theme from The Mary Tyler Moore Show. If you're under 40 you probably have no idea what the heck I'm talking about. Go see if it's on the Youtube or better yet track down Hüsker Dü's version of it.

Or you can do something better with your time and make a Pink Wink.

I enjoyed this one very much. As part of my Tiki Month celebration, I posted about it, with a link back to here:

I personally don't see this as a tiki drink.

"I enjoyed this one very much. As part of my Tiki Month celebration, I posted about it..." -PeguDoug-



Below is PeguDoug's post from his site The Pegu Blog




    ___________________________________________________________

    THE PINK WINK

    * 3 parts London Dry gin
    * 1 part dry vermouth
    * 1 part Cointreau
    * 1 part coconut rum
    * grenadine

    Grenadine should be approximately 1 tsp per ounce in a part. Stir lovingly with ice until well chilled. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with pomegranate arils at the bottom of the glass, and drizzle more grenadine into the drink to settle among the arils.

    I took a few liberties with WoofMutt’s recipe. First, I replaced his cherry garnish with the pomegranate arils because I think they are more Tiki-like, and more importantly so that whomever you offer them to will be yours forever!

    Second, I guess the grenadine used in the original is the artificially colored stuff, because my natural grenadine made no impact on the color of this drink in the called for amount. I doubled it, and also drizzled a bit more to settle into the bottom of the glass among the pomegranate arils.

    The result is an odd duck, but exotic. Contrary to the poster’s original comments, I don’t see this one wining over any gin-o-phobes. And and the frou-frou drink crowd won’t get it either. But if you are looking for a Tikified Martini, with some pleasant Valentine’s Day symbolism, the Pink Wink may be your destination.
