What do I love more than booze? Drinking it. Unfortunately, I can’t drink like I used to. I can’t funnel rubi like a freshman heathen anymore. Neither my morals nor my insides are as forgiving as they once were. I’m about to be a senior, so I’m basically a fossil in college years. I turned 21 in January, and I’ve been growing accustomed to drinks that actually taste like they’re intended for human consumption. Now that I can buy liquor completely independently, I like to get creative with my drinks.

I like going to the liquor store and grabbing a bunch of things that I’ve never tried before, that seem like they’d taste good together and hoping for the best. The days of soda and alcohol are behind me (for the most part). So I decided to share my concoctions on my blog every once in a blue Tuesday.

For Marathon Monday, probably the most widely celebrated day drink in New England, I decided to make two giant jugs of what I have officially named Marathon Mango.

Liquor is sold in the Shaws that I go to most frequently as well as the BJ’s that my family visits most frequently, so I usually can get all of my ingredients in the same place, but for those of you less fortunate, I split the shopping list into the grocery store category and liquor store category. Brands are in parentheses because for the most part I don’t feel like they were extremely important.

Liquor Store:

Shitty, struggle bus vodka. If it comes in a plastic bottle and smells like it’s supposed to go in your gas tank, it’ll do. (Fleischmann’s)
Peach Schnapps (DeKupyer)
Coconut & Pineapple rum – it can be coconut. Or just pineapple. The only reason I chose this rum was because it looked like it tasted good and it was about $5 cheaper than Malibu. (Calico Jack)
Triple Sec (Hiram Walker)

Grocery Store:

Pineapple wedges
Simply Lemonade – I didn’t put the brand in parentheses this time because I felt like the brand was significantly relevant to the taste for the lemonade
Mango Smoothie (Naked) – I bought an industrial sized one, not the one at convenience stores, so you might want to buy like… four?
Mango juice (Apple & Eve)

I gave both jugs a good shake and let them sit over night.

The one thing you can’t really expect from me is accurate measurements, because I play it by sight and and my expectation to get a good brown out at the very least without gagging every time I drink it. If it’s any help, I believe the jugs were somewhere around half full with alcohol before I started adding juices.

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs

  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
