When I was at Myrtle nannying, I had one morning off and decided to grab a fun summery drink, because...well, I mean I am alive so I cannot think of a better reason than that.
As I was trying to make my selection, the bartender tried to talk me into this drink and I was not initially sold on the idea...Until he went and spoke the magic words. "No one has ever ordered it before and I am trying to have a formed opinion, I will give it to you on the house"
Say what?! Well now, suddenly that sounds oh, so tasty.
The first few sips were a little too sour for me and I was not sold on how I felt about it, I didn't hate it, didn't love it, was more so ambivalent towards it. I remember mentioning something about how it would be better with bourbon(because...isn't everything?!) and he walks over with a bottle of Makers and he...Makers my day.
Yes...I just said that. You're welcome.
Upon getting home I decided to try my hand at it using real ice cream instead of that lovely island oasis mix and here is my version.
2 to 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 oz caramel baileys(or any caramel liquor)
1 oz apple rum
a couple splashed bourbon
caramel sauce *optional
Combine all ingredients in blender with a handful of ice and blend to desired consistency. Drizzle Caramel sauce in glass and pour in blended drink.
Not my favorite, but I am not an overt fan of mixing sweet and sour in a frozen drink from the start, my neighbor loved it though.I enjoyed it more than I anticipated, though. Really simple and refreshing.
