Cheers! The Roxanne

The Roxanne

The Roxanne

Hmmm. Let’s analyze this: A rum-based cream liqueur, a whipped-cream-flavored vodka and a pumpkin pie liqueur.

Those were the main ingredients to a cocktail my sister-in-law made at a recent family holiday get-together.

Can you say, “Girlie Drink?”

That it was.

Don’t get me wrong, now. It was tasty. Anything with cream in it likely would be, but, man, why do women have to concoct such things? They like to drink (I have personal experience with that), but why do they have to dress it all up like this?

She made it with two shots of Rumchata, 1 1/2 shots of whipped cream-flavored vodka, one shot of pumpkin pie liqueur (only a woman would know such a thing existed) and mixed it with ice.

I call it The Roxanne (if, for no other reason, to make her own up to it).

Babe. Why can’t you just stick with the margaritas that you’re so famous for? Those are at least drinkable.

What is it they say? You can pick your friends, but not your family.

Who made that rule?
