Talking Kameleon Recipe

This is a very pleasant summer cocktail, with pleasing visuals, as well!

1.5 oz 151 Rum
1/2 oz blue curacao
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1/3 oz Pimm's

You need a highball glass, filled with crushed ice. Add the ingredients in the order listed. Momentarily, the layers will keep to themselves, rather like a traffic light, with the Pimm's floating on top. Stir it....and it's such a lovely shade of green. I believe it you took it towards a black light, it would glow.

It's one of those cocktails that goes down waaaaaaaay to easily.

BTW, when you say highball glass, you're talking about the pint glasses I have at the house, right??

A pint, dollface, may be a bit too big...I think 12 oz. is fine...but if all you have are pint glasses, just add more rum.

Vera, would rinsed-out jars for Classico spaghetti sauce be acceptable vessels for this lovely concoction? What if I hike up the ice?

Go for it, indeed

I found I didn't have high ball glasses, either. I used two glasses we got at a pub last year. I think the days of high balls have gone the way of brill creme and polishing white shoes with that squeezgy thing.

How did those tall skinny glasses (or is it the drinks that go in them) get the name high ball, anyway?

Maybe I should use the souvenir Pat O'Brian's hurricane glasses instead.

I remember that squeezgy thing - used it on my saddle shoes and then later, when I was cool, on my tennies.
