This post is intended for those 21+ years of age. Please enjoy responsibly. Gumby Slumber Cocktail.
Last week I was in the Florida Keys, if you follow me on Instagram and Twitter you would have seen some of the aca-awesomeness, and if you’re not, just why? Go ahead and fix that now, m’kay. I almost didn’t come home. Not even going to pretend that it was anything short of amazing.
The food, the people the WATER. It’s ridiculous. I honestly bought an artisan made necklace off a gallery owner’s neck because it reminded me of the water. I had to have it, and this cocktail that I discovered while there.
We were greeted at the dock of the luxurious and uber exclusive Little Palm Island Resort & Spa with a tray of these cocktails. It’s called the Gumby Slumber. “It was created and named long ago by one of the Island’s first bartenders. The name was a random thought as he was describing the effect of the drink – your body turns to a “gumby” state and you simply want to “slumber” in a hammock all afternoon. I can attest to that. I decided to shake it up (literally and figuratively) using Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum and Blue Chair Bay White Rum.
