    My wife (God bless 'er, she's wonderful!) makes a cocktail for me to enjoy while I'm on the deck grilling or smoking. She says it's a Black Eyed Susan. I don't care what she calls it as long as she makes it 'cause it sure is good!

    3/4 cup orange juice

    1/2 cup pineapple juice

    3 Tbsp. 100 proof vodka

    3 Tbsp. light rum

    2 tbsp. orange liqueur

    Crushed ice

    Garnishes: Lime slices and/or fresh cherries

    Stir together first 5 ingredients. Fill 12 ounce glass with crushed ice. Pour mixture over ice. Garnish if desired, serve immediately and enjoy!

    Crown Royal on the rocks. A great summer sipping afternoon drink while watching the TBS.

    This started out with me mixing vodka and pineapple juice. Janet says "That ain't nothin'. I'll make you a REAL grillin' drink!"

    Needless to say, I don't make my grillin' sippers anymore. [​IMG]

    Try some of the water enhancers squirted directly in the vodka Chef! Good stuff!

    I'm in the same spot Chef,  Gonna have to forget the pineapple and orange juice tonight.  I'll check the base ingredients out though.

    Thanks, Hillbilly, the juices are already on the shopping list.

    Sound good but I am a cold beer drinker, who cares what you drink as long as you like it and your smoker is full. 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker
