8/23/07 Flaming Momma's Boy

More than a year and a half ago, I had a drink named in my honor. Since then, I thought I had lost the ingredients. I did a little cleaning today - and - you guessed it... I found the ingredients. The story behind the drink is simple. On a vacation with extended family, I told my mom that I wanted to spend time with her; whatever it was she wanted to do. After we had our mother/son bonding time together, I introduced her to the bartender that had been so generous to my cousins and me during the week. During my absence, my cousins and Neil (the bartender) concocted a drink in my honor. So, to hopefully keep this recipe in the family for generations to come, here's how to make a "Flaming Momma's Boy"....
  • 1 oz Bailey's
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1 oz Chocolate Vermeer / Dark Creme de Cacao
  • In a shaker, shake well and pour
  • Top with whipped cream and garnish with a cherry


In case you want to mix it up a little, you can also make yourself a "Cousin Eric" (Fruity, with a dash of masculinity).

  • 1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy
  • 1/2 oz Cherry Brandy
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1/2 oz Bacardi Razz
  • 1 oz Cranberry Juice
  • Pour over ice and stir


I never quite got into NASCAR. Until today. I finally watched this long time coach explain the intricate details. And now I'm at least intrigued....

Weird Al's song "Bob". Can you figure out what all the lyrics have in common?


It's not often that you hear anyone prioritizing their renditions of "YMCA". In fact, I never intended to ever post anything "YMCA" related. However, given the topic today, it only seems appropriate... To present my favorite performance of "YMCA".

How come Neil never made a "Cousin Lisa"? Probably because every time he gave me a shot I made Danny take it for me.
