Crocodile (Hunter) Tears

I want to pay tribute to the late wildlife conservationist and damn-fine human being, the ultimate Wildlife Warrior, Steve Irwin.

His commitment to educating us all about exotic animals and dedicating his life to helping them survive is an example of what it means to be a productive member of society. His purpose on Earth was larger than his own existence.

In honor of his work, you can make a donation to his wildlife preservation organiztion, Wildlife Warriors Worldwide. The money is used to run the non-profit and also to help maintain Australia Zoo, the wildlife park started by Irwin's parents and continued by Steve and his wife. In an interview, Steve said he hoped to pass the torch of wildlife preservation to his children, Bindy (8) and Bob (2), one day.

Crocodile Tears
(Disclaimer! This recipe is not meant to be in bad taste. Rather, this drink is meant to be a nod to his zest for life and his sense of humor.)

1 oz. Midori
1 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. Galliano
4 oz. pineapple juice

Combine all ingredients and shake vigorously, with ice. Pour into a rocks glass. Exclaim “Crickey!” upon consumption.

Um, why haven't I read this site before. Please forgive me.

Love what you are doing with the place.

Sad to see Steve go. Not happy.

Did you have any scotch drinks that you'd like to share?

Thanks, Anonymous.

And, Hello Mr. Senator... Is this the Senator friend / foe of KAC?

Thanks for the note. Happy to have you in the Land of the Muse. I will think of some good scotch drinks for you...

A friend to most. Foe to few.

KAC and I will continue to remain friends with a deep respect and connection, despite what we all may read/see in the blogosphere.

Oh, and FYI, you can order a "Senator" scotch drink at the Topaz Hotel Bar. It comes with a twist.
