August 14, 2010 (Day 197) — Bolo

This morning my dad and I set down two kayaks in the beautiful waters of a nearby lake and proceeded to paddle our asses off for the next 2 1/2 hours.

It was beautiful, hot, cool and exhausting. Overall, a pretty great guy. That being said.

This is a bolo tie:

This is a bolo knife:

This is a Bolo cocktail:


2 oz rum

1/2 oz lime juice

1 oz orange juice

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Not too bad, really. The citrus of the juices mixed with the darkness of the rum and spice of bitters is a pretty solid combination. As always, make sure you’re using fresh juices. It always make a huge difference.
