Penelope Pitstop


Penelope Pitstop
This Wacky Races cartoon character was dubbed the "Glamour Gal of the Gas Pedal", and was known for her affinity for the color Pink.  Actually, she was based on the Natalie Wood character in "The Great Race", and was known for her trendsetting style and fashion.  As for our cocktail tribute, we have a tasty, frozen, Pink, Rum drink that's a bit nutty (Amaretto), somewhat tropical and fruity (Coconut and Pineapple), and is highlighted with Glitter and Gold (Goldschlager).  So, the next time that you're looking to get a little revved up, be sure to try out featured cocktail, the... Penelope Pitstop.  Cheers!
1.5 oz. Light Rum
1 oz. Amaretto
.5 oz. Cream de Noyaux (Grenadine will work too)
2 oz. Pineapple Juice
2 oz. Pina Colada Mix
Whipped Cream
Red Sparkles (cake decorating section at grocery store)  
Invert a Hurricane glass, and run it through almost any liquid (I used a tspn. of syrup from the Cherry jar) to wet the rim.  Slide the rim through a saucer of 1 tspn. of Red Sparkles, so that it coats the rim of the glass.  Set the glass upright in the fridge while you prepare your drink.  For the cocktail, combine all of the liquids, and about 10 cubes of ice, into a blender.  Puree for about a minute, and then carefully pour into your glass.  Add a bit of Whipped Cream, top with a Cherry, insert a long straw, and you're ready to begin enjoying your pink and delicious... Penelope Pitstop!
