Mother's Day has come and (nearly) gone, and with it passed a pretty big day at work. Between 9am and 3pm, the hours we ran our Mother's Day Brunch, we had somewhere between 450 and 475 people eat, making it, I'm reasonbly certain, our busiest day ever. Despite all this, things ran amazingly smoothly, especially considering most of our restaurant has tables that seat four, and about 75% of our reservations were for parties greater than 4 people.

I also made up a kick ass drink for the brunch, that sold, I've been told, quite well. I wanted to call it the Pink Flamingo, but we wound up calling it "Fresh Strawberry Rum Punch," which sounded a bit too "Mary Poppins" for my liking. Anyway, it's fantabulous, in my not so humble opinion, so here's how you make it.
1.5 oz. Parrot Bay classic (coconut) rum
1.5 oz. Parrot Bay Mango Rum
1.5 oz. Parrot Bay Pineapple Rum
Splash of Bacardi O (orange rum)
top up with pureed strawberries.

shake well. Serve over ice.

Alternately, if you don't feel like pureeing strawberries, or the bar you're at doesn't have a blender, drop the puree and the Bacardi O and top up with orange juice. but you'll have to find a different John Waters movie to name it after.
go make yourself one. or four, like one of the moms in our restaurant had. We had some happy mothers in the restaurant today.

    I miss California tremendously. I'm working on getting back there permanently. That is all (for now).
