Moonage Daydream Martini

While hanging out before the Rebel, Rebel show. Someone mentioned we have a David Bowie inspired martini called a Moonage Daydream. I quickly stepped in to suggest something with Blue Curacao for color and Godiva White Chocolate to make it creamy. Originally, I thought of using Coconut Rum as the base, but after getting home and experimenting with the chemistry set, I decided the coconut flavor with chocolate was too much like the Obama-tini. So I swapped it out for pineapple and the result was perfectly delicious and unique. Garnished with a small colorful fruit salad, I think the drink fits Bowie's persona just fine.

  • 5 oz Pineapple Rum
  • 1 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 oz Godiva White Chocolate Liquor
  • splash of Frangelico
  • drizzle of Grenadine

Shake all ingredients except the Grenadine with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a small orange slice and a pineapple wedge with Maraschino cherry on a cocktail spear. Use a spoon or eye dropper to drizzle a lightning bolt shape with the Grenadine in the blue foam.

I think it looks tasty, but it needs some food-grade glitter as a garnish too. I'll have to investigate at kitchen window; I know they have some. *grins* We should have a bowie-themed party.
