Hockey Stick

Hockey Stick

Hockey Stick, TMNT, cocktail, Casey Jones


I have been off on what day of the week it is all day.....well all week to be honest.  I must have checked the calendar at least 5 times today to make sure that it was Thursday.  Every time the kids have a day off of school whether it's a holiday or a teacher in service day, I get screwed up all week long of the days.  I had a couple "OH NO!" moments today thinking that I was getting this post out on Friday when I really wanted it to go out on Thursday.  Jen, it's Thursday.  Tomorrow is pizza and beer Friday!  

I created a cocktail for all 4 of the Ninja Turtles over the past 4 days.  In reality I totally could have stopped there, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, our family really likes Stephen Amell and since he is playing Casey Jones in the TMNT2 movie I just knew I have to create a cocktail for him too.  Tonight I did just that, so Stephen Amell if you are reading this (right Jen, like he's a faithful long time reader of your blog.....in your dreams), this cocktail is for you!

In my mind, if Casey Jones was to go to a bar after a long night of being a vigilante and fighting crime, he would order a cocktail that had whiskey in it.  Once I decided that I was going to use whiskey, I opened up my bar and there it was front and center......Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey!  It's like it knew I needed to use it or something.


So I added Honey Whiskey, orange juice and lemon juice.


I shook it up real good to give everything the perfect chill and strained it into my mason jar.



After that was all said and done my husband called to let me know what channel the Warriors game is on.  SUPER EXCITED ABOUT HOW WELL THEY ARE DOING AGAIN THIS YEAR!!  While we were on the phone I was telling him about what I used in tonight's cocktail and he gave me the name Hockey Stick.  Pretty clever.......but I told him I'll throw it in the pile of names (of which I only had one) and let him know if his won or not.  It did, but I think I'll make him wait a little longer before I let him know I chose it......see we're very competitive and we're both always right (actually he usually is right 95% of the time, but I like to pretend that I am too) so this would be a "win" in his book and the longer I can go without letting him know he won, the better......it's the small things ya know?


Don't forget toe check out my other turtle cocktail: TMNT RaphaelTMNT MichelangeloTMNT LeonardoTMNT Donatello as well as my Ninja Turtle cocktail.
