As Kilgharrah told everyone last friday she was expecting puppies. It took a bit longer, and the labour took a bit of time, so she needed to rest. As a poor substitute for her evil-minded riddles we will have a Name that Lava competition.
One point will be awarded for the name of the lava in question, another point will be awarded for the volcano that caused the lava, and the third point will be awarded for which famous building was constructed with this particular lava. So, all in all 3 points to be had.
In the past we have had Lava cakes, Volcano cakes, Volcano chocolate, but to the best of my knowledge we have not had a volcanic drink in the Friday Volcano Bar here at Volcanocafé. It is well overdue I think. Here is my suggested drink, and rest assured that I will drink this one during the weekend.
This drink is a large tropical coctail meant to be shared between several people. It should for very many reasons be served with long straws, if not you will have people with burning hair kissing each other. The drink was originally invented in Hawaii in the early fifties by a crafty surfer who wanted a drink to share with his friends. It later became popular in Chile during the time of Augusto Pinochet, probably because they wanted to place him over a Flaming Volcano. The recipé is in centiliters.
3 Silver rum
3 Dark rum (preferably at 60 percent)
12 Orange juice, or Pineapple-orange juice
6 Squeezed lime or unsweetened lime juice
6 Almond syrup
Put in a blender with two scoops of ice and blend. Pour into the bowl and garnish with pineapple and maraschino cherries, or any other tropical fruit you have at home. Insert a tiny bowl into it with a tad of the 60 percent rum in it, light it up and serve. Serves two people, multiply if you are more people. Friendly hint, test the burning bowls abillity to float in the larger bowl beforehand…
Commenter Ursh found an old newsreel of Vesuvius last eruption. I thought it would be a perfect friday night movie together with a Flaming Volcano.
