The Golden Monkey

It’s about time the recipe for this one made it to the public, so without further adoo, the Golden Monkey:

You will need:

  • 2oz. Malibu Rum (or Coconut Parrot Bay)
  • 2oz. Apple Pucker
  • 1oz. Vodka
  • 1oz. Triple Sec
  • 4oz. Orange Juice

Fill a chilled shaker with crushed ice, add all the ingredients and shake vigorously. Pour into shot glasses. Too harsh? Add a little more OJ (not too much).

Origins of the Golden Monkey

The Golden Monkey was named in honor of one of the largest e-braggarts ever to roam JU, GoldenJeeper. Those of us who’d been poking holes in his tall tales had taken to calling him “GoldenMonkey.” At a fire-side party during a desert camping trip, Whisker_Biscuit created a shot which tasted like plain old banana-orange juice. We all loved it, which is good considering he had prepared several rounds before testing it. It didn’t take long to realize just how strong the shot actually was. As the saying went: “It doesn’t taste like alcohol, but it lies!”, and the Golden Monkey (the shot) was born. Good friends, good times and good drinks – thanks guys.
