Hey robots, I'm Excremento, but you cool and old skool Dtoiders know that already, this is merely for the N00BS. I've been a videogamer for as long as I can remember. I have well over 27 years of video game experience that I rely on daily, and a near encyclopedic memory of gaming starting with the Commodore 64 and ending with whatever is the current hotness.
I've got my own blog at MediaWhoreNetwork that I try to write on when I'm not too busy...and just recently have decided to come back to do a few Community Blogs here on Dtoid now that most failbloggers don't exist anymore. I'm still here fellas (and ladies) updating as often as I can for all of your enjoyment.
Any of you out there who wish to chat it up with ol Ex can do so at:
And I think to myself, there are plenty of others here on D-Toid that do the same. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to share some sophisticated drink recipes with fellow adults?
The Workman Mojito
Yes, that is a picture of THE James Bond, Sean Connery. What does he have to do with a mojito? Absolutely nothing whatsoever, but in Die Another Day Pierce Brosnan ordered a Mojito when he was in Cuba. It is internet law that anything that James Bond drinks is automatically manly. Its a good thing too cause I felt like such a girl when I oredered one of these when we were in Mexico. Ron Workman is neither Mexican or Cuban, he does however live in Florida which makes him automatically 1/4 of both and another 1/4 Old Person. This is a particularly good recipe for a mojito, the personal touch from me is the brown sugar instead of granulated white sugar. I hope you like it.
The basic recipe is:
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Lime Wedges
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
1 1/2 Oz. Silver Tequila
1/2 Oz. Creme de Cassis
5 Oz. 7-Up® soda
Get yourself a drink mixing tin, place the brown suger, lime wedges, and all of the mint leaves at the bottom and muddle them until mixture smells like spearmint gum (if you don't have a muddling tool, just use a wooden spoon and beat the hell out of the ingredients. Next, fill the tin with ice. After that you'll want to add the Tequila and Creme de Cassis, put the lid on and shake until the tin starts to have condensation on the outside and is cold to the touch. Pour into a tall glass, and fill to taste with 7-up. You can garnish if you want, but it'll just get in the way of your drink.
The drink should look something like this when finished.
I'd personally use a taller glass
There you have it, The Workman Mojito! Depending on your tolerance for alcohol, take it easy with these, if you're uninitiated in the ways of liquor, it might go straight to your head. Good god they are delicious!
