Drink 121: Drink Named Like a Lady

Shady Lady Cocktail
This looked a bit greener than the
picture shows. Mrs. Bottle thought
it looked like pea soup.
Let me get the boring drink review out of the way first. Once that’s over with we can talk about something funny, cool, and/or interesting.  The drink is the Shady Lady, a combination of tequila, melon liqueur, and grapefruit juice.  It was just kind of so-so, with a bit of an odd taste.  It could be that melon liqueur doesn’t really complement grapefruit juice.  Or it could be that months-old Donald Duck brand grapefruit juice is not the best.  Whatever the reason, it didn’t taste like something I would want to drink again and it was a relief to finish it.  It is also a relief that we are done with that section of today’s post and we can now continue with something more engaging.

Overall Rating for the Shady Lady

Taste: 3
Presentation: 4
Ease of Preparation: 4 – Two garnishes?  That is a one point deduction
Drinks Until Blackout: 9 –  11% Alcohol


1 oz Tequila
1 oz Melon Liqueur
4 oz Grapefruit Juice
