A Tale Of Cocktails #15 (Take 2)

Fuzzy Shark


4 oz orange juice
1 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
1/2 oz Blue Curacao

Taste: 8
Look: 8
Cost: 9
Name: 9
Prep: 8
Alcohol: 3
Overall: 7.8

Preparation: Pour the Blue Curacao into a cocktail glass. Put the orange juice, Peach Schnapps and a cup of ice through a blender, and pour into the glass.

General Comments:  That is a simply spectacular name.  Fuzzy sharks might not be the best kind of sharks, but they're still better than anything else with fur in this world or any other.  Even the cutest puppy must bow down before the bloodthirsty might of the fuzzy shark.  If it knows what's good for it, at any rate.

Onto less cosmetic and dog-munching concerns.  The blended ice in this really works, combining with the orange juice and the slight tang of the Schnapps.  It's another one of those dangerous thirst-quenching drinks, especially if you've worked up a bit of a sweat (in my case, by bowling my worst game in eight years).  The Curacao gets lost a little in there, which is a bit of a shame, but it's just about detectable, and does enough to the look of the cocktail (which really shouldn't work, but absolutely does) that it definitely needs to be in there.
