RESULTS Rockabilly Challenge #1 - Drink Up

Here's my result for the first Rockabilly Challenge.  Please feel free to post yours!  Give it a name, tell us how to make it, and tell us why you named it what you did and why you chose the ingredients.  Be sure to post it here with a picture!  We want to see your creation!

Island Girl
2 oz Rum
6oz Pineapple Juice
1 tsp Lime Juice
3-4oz Orange Juice
4 Maraschino Cherries

1. In a shaker, put rum and juices. Shake and pour half into glass.
2. Add enough grenadine to color the bottom of the glass.
3. Drop in 4 cherries.
4. Pour the rest of the drink into the glass over a spoon.  This should keep the drink from becoming one solid color, achieving the gradient effect.

I have been on a retro Polynesian/Hawaiian kick lately which is why I chose to make this drink.  Can't go wrong with rum.  I chose pineapple and orange juice because its sunny and tropical.  I wanted to reflect a sunset, so I dropped in 4 cherries and some grenadine.  I named it "Island Girl" to reflect my mood.

Pinterest Rockabilly Challenges

With Easter coming up on April 20th (I had to google that, LOL) I figure what better way to get ready than to make something new for Easter?  Put together a rockabilly look for Easter.  If you use a pattern, tell us what pattern you're using.  If you are just putting an ensemble together, tell us the brands.  Nifty shoes?  Where did you get them?  Have fun boys and girls!
