Live from Pammy's Pub: Cabin Fever Lab

Blogging live from Pammy's Pub today. Pammy was on her way over to the bar to pour us a glass of inspiration when she said the strangest thing. "We already posted our blog. We don't need to drink today."
My head spun so quickly in her direction you could hear the "whoosh"!

Spring Cleaning
Thank you to those of you who contributed suggestions for the Cabin Fever. We're going through them and will make some modifications of our own to bring you the newest creation today. Since this is a live blog, we'll add to it as we have more to share.

After a minor bout of spring cleaning, Pam has the well-stocked bar organized and we're ready to start mixing. Our pre-drink brainstorm determined we needed "comfort" flavors combined with more hopeful, fruity flavors: chocolate, almond and coconut in an orange base. We'll let you know how this goes.

Is anyone else having trouble with the time change? Our clocks self-set overnight for daylight savings time. Time for new clocks.

Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever

1/2 oz. coconut rum
1 oz. hazelnut or almond liqueur
1 1/2 oz. chocolate vodka
4 oz. orange juice

Shaken with ice and garnished with a cherry.

We're ready for Spring Fever recipe submissions. You have until the end of April to send us your ideas for this drink. No rules. All will be considered. We'll be perfecting the Whitewater Rushin' and have the final product ready in time for Whitewater Derby in early May.

I'm not sure exactly how the bar reviews will fall (or stagger) onto this page, but will eventually have a schedule figured out. Meanwhile, we'll try to keep you amused.
