The Mungo Jerry

A note about cocktails.

I live in a city with a well-established cocktail scene. I very much enjoy fancy-pants cocktails, while still digging the dive-bar concoctions that I order most of the time.

I’ve stepped gingerly in the world of making my own artisanal cocktails. My first invention was a cucumber-basil-gin mix that my roommates affectionately deemed “Pond Sludge” (and less-affectionately requested that I NEVER MAKE AGAIN).

Needless to say, I’ve already got a strike against me as a creator. But Friday night I whipped up a little vodka-triple-sec-orange juice drink that met with approval (I’m even allowed to make it again!). I deem this the Mungo Jerry cause guess what came up on shuffle while I was making it.

The Mungo Jerry

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 6 oz orange juice
  • ice
  • maraschino cherry
  1. Mix vodka, triple sec, lime juice and orange juice in cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into your equivalent of a lowball glass. Top with ice and cherry.

**Apologies if this is a real drink and I didn’t know it.
