Bare Platypus Recipes for Relaxation

THIS WEEK we have been providing tips for getting ready for Memorial Day weekend.  To that aim, we present you with two official Bare Platypus recipes for relaxation. 



For our first recipe you’ll need:

¾ Oz. Sloe Gin

¾ Oz. Amaretto

¾ Oz. Southern Comfort

Orange Juice


In a Collins glass pour the alcohol over ice.  Top with Orange Juice. For a dash of panache, add a maraschino cherry. 

Serve ONLY to naked guests age 21 and over and do NOT give your guests back their clothes or their keys unless fully sober.  (You can make a non-alcoholic version by mixing orange juice with a dash of grenadine syrup and the cherry.) The drink is known as an “Alabama Slammer.”  Drinking it ONLY when you’re buck naked is our idea.

Our second suggestion is the “Broken Pinkie Toe”:

Pink Grapefruit Juice

1 Oz. Peach Schnapps


In a rocks glass pour Peach Schnapps over ice. Top off with the juice and stir gently.

Okay, we can’t see going into a bar and saying “I’ll have some malt liquor and the wife will have a Broken Pinkie Toe,” either.  So you’ll have to enjoy this one at home.  Fortunately that means you can sip it whilst lounging in your birthday suit.

Again, this drink is for the 21 + crowd only, but you can serve the kids any leftover grapefruit juice at breakfast.
