|Not sure what is "Boston" or|
"Caribbean" about this
That makes today the most tragic day in The Bottle is a Wonderland history. And no, it is not because we had to drink Coors Light, although that didn’t help. It is because we are even more derivative than we thought. We never pretended that the concept behind TBIAW was original. In fact, we said in our very first post that we blatantly stole the idea from Julie & Julia. But to find another blog with the exact same premise was a real stomach punch. This must be how Marconi felt when he discovered that Tesla had already invented radio. I have no idea how Tesla feels about Mr. Big, though.
|Damn you Cocktail Jen!|
Since Cocktail Jen (the blog, not the person) appears to be dead, the best way to honor it is to forge ahead in our own effort and review the Boston Caribbean. It is coffee, crème de cocoa (dark), and dark rum. Like Cocktail Jen, we both enjoyed the Boston Caribbean. Mrs. Bottle thought it had a strong rum flavor, but I mostly tasted coffee. There was ample sweetness because I normally don’t like coffee without a fair amount of sugar and this was definitely drinkable. I’m guessing that the whipped cream had a lot to do with it but Cocktail Jen thinks it was the crème de cocoa. Also like Cocktail Jen, our cinnamon stick sank to the bottom of the glass before I could get a picture.
Unlike Cocktail Jen, we will have another post for you tomorrow.
