I want to imbibe.
Today, October 13th, is Fox Mulder’s birthday.
Who is Fox Mulder, you may ask? He’s the male lead of the greatest sci-fi show to ever exist: The X-Files. The X-Files is inexplicably my favorite show in the world, and Mulder’s birthday is a day before mine, so you can understand why I had to celebrate the occasion in some fashion.
Life has been busy lately. I started my last semester of college a month ago and time is flying by. Still, I’ve managed to make some time for friends and fun. My roommate and I hosted a back-to-school party a few weeks ago and I, of course, made cocktails for our guests. The weather has been so temperamental and the day of the party brought a sticky, unpleasant heat. Why doesn’t DC understand that it’s September?!
This drink, which I call the Tea-quila Twist, was the perfect way to cool down.
Since my 21st birthday, making cocktails has been one of my favorite hobbies. Usually I stick with classic cocktails, but occasionally I invent my own. This weekend I picked up a bottle of Cruzan Key Lime Rum on my walk home, invited some friends over, and my “Loconut” (a crazy good combination of lime and coconut) cocktail was born.
