By the way, did you know that Babysham is making a come back in the UK?
Not a cocktail as such I know but very popular with the ladies in the late 50's- and 60's

Do you mean Davie Florida? I lived in Davie before moving up here.
Have you been there long?
Did you know Mario's on Davie Blvd and Sterling road? It was in the corner where the grocery store was or is.

How bout the sub shop across the street from Mario's in the strip mall. It had a sign outside that said it was an ice cream shop.
Best subs ever.

Late 70's - 80's.

I don't recall those places. I remember The Ark restaurant and Batten's Berry Farm. The Ark was on Stirling just east of Davie Rd Extension and Batten's is on Davie Rd Extension, just north of Stirling. The Kapok Tree was north of Griffin Rd and west of Flamingo Rd. Almost parallel with, but way west of the Flamingo Gardens tourist trap. I think you have Davie Rd and Davie Blvd mixed. Davie Blvd is north of Griffin and runs east-west. Davie Rd is east of University Dr and runs north-south.

I don't live in Davie, I live in the Pines. Things have changed. The Alley is now a part of I-75. Somethings haven't changed. Holiday Park and Sawgrass Recreation Area are still there.

Not with this lady in her 60s. I had one or two when I was young and foolish but I never really took to them.

My mother used to like it way back when as part of a "brandy and Babycham".

I may be wrong but I seem to remember that in it's heyday the company made a dry and a sweet Babycham for a while.

It was the first alcoholic drink specifically aimed at women to be marketed in the UK

this is my favorite.

1/2 evaporated milk
1/2 Chocolate liquer
on the rocks. If you want to make it stronger add a splash of your favorite hard liquor, like vodka for example.

Ok, I'm totally confused on spelling here because there are too many choices in Spell Check. But i hope you know what I mean.

Looks to me like got them all right, except liqueur. That's a tricky one with the two "u"s. Yes, I used my spell checker, set to American English, instead of my regular Canadian English or "favorite" would have been wrong (favourite in Canadian English).

Parts of this thread are like walking down memory lane! Two throw-backs to the 1970s are Golden Cadillac and Tequila Sunrise. I used to order that one because the color shading was so pretty AND it went down nice and smooth.

Oh, oh, Tequila sunrise. I can't think about those without thinking about a friend I had back in the '70s. We were at "Jean's", my favourite sleazy bar (that is no more). He walked out with his drink, a Tequila sunrise, in his hand. That wasn't the worst he had done at Jean's. Once he walked out with the toilet seat.
