The Tangeloafer™

The Tangeloafer

This easy-to-make drink is designed for hot, lazy summer days. Loafing as a science and an art.

1 Large Tangelo (citrus hybrid*)
1 jigger Cruzan Pineapple Flavored Rum
1 oz Triple Sec
1/2 cup cracked ice

Cut a wedge of about 1/8 of the tangelo and set aside. Combine juice and pulp of remaining tangelo flesh, plus rum, triple sec, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until your hands turn numb. Strain into an old fashion glass.

Ideally, the liquor and the glassware com out of the freezer. However, there is a chance that you are just too lazy for that much preparation. And that's okay. Enjoy.

The tangelo is citrus fruit that is a hybrid of any mandarin orange, popularly known as a tangerine, and either a pomelo or a grapefruit. It may have originated in Southeast Asia over 3,500 years ago. The fruits look like good-sized, oblong oranges and have a tangerine taste, but are very juicy, to the point of not providing much flesh but producing excellent and plentiful juice.
