Well, this is not a drink for mature adults. This is a drink for people who missed their first childhood, have led a life of toil, trouble and responsibility, and have at some point decided the hell with this, they’re going to have their first childhood with a vengeance. And an I.D. which proclaims them all grown up. Bwahahahaha!
The Happy Face cocktail actually gets garnished with a happy face on top. I am not kidding. Like I said, it’s not for people who have adjusted well to maturity. But who wants to be those people?
- 1/2 ounce gin
- 1/2 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- 1/2 ounce tonic water
- 4 – 8 ounces orange juice
- 1/2 ounce pina colada mix
- 1 whole egg
Fill ahalfway with ice cubes. Pour the gin, vodka, Cointreau, tonic water and pina colada mix into the . Break an egg and drop it into the shaker, or use egg substitute if you’re concerned about consuming raw eggs (the raw egg is traditional, but thanks to corporate farming’s mishandling of salmonella, you’re probably better off with the substitute).
Shake this drink to hell and back – really shake it to break up that egg. Pour the contents, including the ice, into a glass. Fill the glass the rest of the way up with orange juice.
And here – are you ready for the really silly part? Float two cherries on top of the egg foam like little eyes, and float a lemon wedge by them so it all looks like a happy face. Only, I’ve never gotten this to work. So just be creative and garnish with whatever.
