It's been over 4 years since I featured this cocktail and it has been my most-viewed and most-popular post to date! I am excited about that, but also excited for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie — a perfect excuse to enjoy this cocktail as well as the others I have listed below in honor of it!
I have to admit that when I first started straining this cocktail into my glass I got a little scared because of it's neon green color. I have to say, do not let the color fool you! This is a good cocktail!! It kind of has a creamy taste. You're not expecting it at all but it's definitely weird in a GOOD way. I give tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5. The Ninja Turtle is even husband-approved!
Here is the recipe for the Ninja Turtle:
- 1 shot Malibu rum
- 1 shot melon liqueur
- 1 shot pineapple juice
In a shaker add ice, Malibu rum, melon liqueur and pineapple juice. Shake it up well so that all of the ingredients mix up good. Strain it into bud vase if you have one (like mine pictured below), or even a martini glass and enjoy!!
Here is a photo of the end result:
To those of you who used to watch the cartoon, have seen the movies or just know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are, Cheers to you!!
