Some people think there are recipes that you shouldn't mess with...and then there's me. 

I'll put limoncello in anything godammit. 

Sometimes, to surprisingly good results. And that's the case here. Below you'll see pics of exactly how you create a soon-to-be-legendary Light and Stormy cocktail.

Dancing in the Sheets

Mixed Drinks with Limoncello , Rum Limoncello Drinks

This goes WAY back! At the risk of dating myself something awful, I'll say that I remember when this song was popular. Though in my defense, it is one of the first songs I ever remember playing an abusive number of times.

The Footloose soundtrack was one of the first albums I ever owned and I played it until my Walkman finally ate the tape. (Millennials may have to decode that last sentence with some Google searching.) 

True to form, this drink is a new twist on an old classic. And be prepared for a quick trip to the liquor store, because only Baby Boomers and earlier generations would have Cognac laying around the house. Even then, probably only blue bloods and Francophiles.

Talk about impressing your friends though! Whipping out a bottle of Cognac and knowing what to do with it?! Goddamn!

You'll be the talk of the evening. All because of this cocktail with an indecorous moniker. And Shalamar. We mustn't forget the debt we owe to Shalamar.

A couple years ago we visited Water Island, which is a small, sparsely inhabited chunk of land just off St. Thomas.
I was introduced to these by our good friend Captain Jeff of Dinghy's Beach Bar and Grill.

While we were there I had a number (we'll leave it at that) of drinks like this, so I re-created that magic for the site. As you can see from the glassware it's a dark, brooding magic straight from the tiki gods themselves.

Now, here's the thing about dark tiki magic mixed with pineapple juice. It goes down a little too easy and shenanigans tend to ensue.

I have HEARD it said that sometimes people post things to Facebook that they shouldn't when under the influence of dark tiki magic. And that, my friends, is how this drink got its name.

“If You Like Limoncello” Colada

Mixed Drinks with Limoncello , Rum Limoncello Drinks

This drink is obviously named after the goofy 70s song that sticks in your head for days. I'm hoping that effect will carry over to the drink and eventually you'll say "all right already, dammit, I'll make the drink!"

The namesake song was released in 1979, capping off a decade of ugliness. People with ugly hair wearing ugly clothes, driving their ugly cars to the disco for some cheesy dancing to take their minds off the ugly economy.

I count a surging interest in piña coladas and my own birth as some of the highlights of a decade that was otherwise pretty tough on everyone. It's pretty tough to improve upon such a classic drink, but I think we really nailed it here. 

Let me know if you agree in the glowing praise (comments) section below.
