Kungaloosh

Maggie and I spent out honeymoon at Disney World and had a real blast. One of our favorite attractions was Pleasure Island, which has changed quite a bit over the years. The most fun we had in Pleasure Island of 1991 was hanging out in the Adventurer's Club. At one point, Maggie even ended up on stage performing in a mock radio program. And they served a fun frozen drink called the Kungaloosh. I've never seen a recipe for it until now.

Kungaloosh Recipe

1 1/4 ounce Malibu Rum
1 1/4 ounce vodka
3/4 ounce Midori
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
1 splash cranberry juice

Mix well.

I can't tell if that's the same drink, but it certainly sounds similar. Even if I mix this beast, I have no idea whether I will remember the flavor of the original.

Here's a question. Why does pineapple juice come in cans and not bottles or jars? I it may come both ways, but I only see it in cans at the local supermarket. Is it because it's easier to transport from faraway lands in a can?

Pineappele juice in a can and not in a bottle does seem odd to me.

My first thought was, "Just go to Bread & Circus and look for pineapple juice in a bottle."

My next thought was, "How far is it from James's house to Bellingham, where there's a Whole Foods Market?"

Hmm...

Are you closer to Providence? There are two Whole Foods Markets there, and I'll bet they have pineapple juice in bottles.

Juice in a can tastes, well, tinny.

Yes! I've been to that Whole Foods Market. I love it there. That's the only place I know around here to get good ginger beer. I don't go all that often, but I may be driving by there on the highway soon. Excellent. Definitely worth a stop.

Easier to transport things in cans because cans don't shatter, they're cheaper, and they protect the contents from light.

That drink is a lot like a Pearl Harbor, which is one of my favorites.

However, knowing Disney, it seems likely that the actual juice-to-booze ratio was probably a little more favorable to the Hawaiians.

Did you just ask for a jar of juice?
