It's Sunday and the Tiki Bar is open

Today's selection features gin, vodka, and beer. It has an intriguing name, Strip and Go Naked. There are a lot of recipes on the web for this drink. All that I've seen are for the kind of drink you serve in large quantities at big parties. They mix large amounts of lemonade, vodka and beer. This version, however, comes from Beach Bum Berry's Tiki+ guide and dates back to 1963 when Tiki restaurateur Dean Short served it in his Arizona restaurants.

In a double old-fashioned glass:

  • 3/4 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 5 oz lager beer
  • 1/4 oz grenadine

Add ice cubes and stir.

For the lager, I'm using Kona Longboard to give it the Island flavor. The juices make for a sweet drink that you could drink a lot of on a summer day, but the mix of spirits make it very potent.
