Brass Monkey

Who has heard of this wonderfull concoction?

If you have,............ how do YOU make it? I have recently heard of a somewhat different "recipe".


I was at the beer store today and decided to skip on my usual choice of Dechutes' Inversion IPA, Sierra Nevada Pale or Montanas' Big Sky IPA, and grabbed a 6 pak of Mickeys wide mouths, and 2 40's of OE (old english) . I figured while I was "slummin it" I might as well grab some OJ and whip up some Brass Monkeys.


Anyway, my normal "recipe"..........; take a big swig out of the 40oz (or a little sip in the case of the Mickeys wide mouths) and then top off the bottle with OJ, re-cap, gently mix, open and enjoy


The NEW recipe.............

Drink the 40oz down to the top of the label, add 2oz of Southern Comfort , top off with OJ, Mix, Enjoy.

Now I haven't tried this new one yet, maybe tomorrow, I do have another 40 ounces of OE in the fridge

There was a premixed ****tail called "Brass Monkey" produced by the Heublein Company in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. It was fairly inexpensive and provided a portable alternative to regular mixed drinks. Heublein was based in Stamford, Connecticut, and had production facilities in the Hartford, Connecticut area. Brass Monkey was available in bottles from half pint up to 750 mL. At the time that Brass Monkey was released, liquor stores carried mostly beer, wine, and hard alcohol; there were very few premixed alternatives. The drink was named by Steve Doniger, an advertising executive, after an alleged WWII spy. Sales and popularity of Heublein's "Brass Monkey" increased in the 1980s after the release of the Beastie Boys song with the same title of the beverage.[2]

After several years of absence from the market the Brass Monkey premixed ****tail has recently been re-released as The Club" Brass Monkey. Produced by The Club Distilling Company of Stamford Ct. Brass Monkey is currently sold in liquor stores along with other premixed alcoholic beverages under the name The Club ****tails owned by Diageo. [3]

Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.
