Reader blitzen has created a BFB Barca Manita drink! If you don’t drink like moi, there is a non-alcoholic version as well. Revel in her awesomeness! She takes over after the jump.
If you are like me, the Barcelona-Arsenal game left you feeling, well, distraught. If you are like me, you might be craving a good, stiff drink right now. Well, I have just the cure for you! Why don’t you make yourself a manita? It’s the soon-to-be worldwide sensation that will make you think of happier days!
You will need:
RED Mascherano (sic) cherries
In a mixing glass, combine grenadine and pomegranate juice in a 2:1 ratio.
Pour into a clean dry cocktail glass and let settle. In another mixing glass combine tequila and curaçao in a 2:1 ratio.
Take a tablespoon and position it at an angle bottom-side-up in the cocktail glass with the tip of the spoon touching the side of the glass just above the grenadine layer. Slowly and gently pour the tequila-curaçao mixture over the back of the spoon, getting as wide a distribution of liquid as possible. It should layer beautifully. If not, drink it anyway and start again.
On a long skewer, alternate pineapple wedges and cherries. Since this is a manita, 5 is a good number. 😀
For a non-alcoholic version you could substitute any blue-coloured pop (soda).
Put on the last El Clasico and lie back and think of Barcelona. 😀
