Lounge Cocktail: Red Eye

Although Red Eye has been in past newsletters, it is Red Eye season, so here it is again.

• Cheap, not light, beer
• V-8 vegetable juice
• Splash Worcestershire Sauce
• Splash Tabasco

Fill your frosty glass almost half full of vegetable juice, add a splash of worcestershire and Tabasco. Finish filling glass with beer and enjoy. This is traditionally a Southern drink and is refreshing as well as relaxing. A perfect early summer cocktail.

Witch Doctor Cures Sexual Dysfunction

After a few years of married life, a man finds that he is unable to perform.

He goes to his doctor, and his doctor tries a few things, but nothing works. Finally the doctor says to him " This is all in your mind ", and refers him to a psychiatrist.

After a few visits to the shrink, he confesses. " I am am a loss as to how you could possibly be cured ". Finally the psychiatrist refers him to a witch doctor.

The witch doctor says " I can cure you ". He throws some powder in a flame, and there is a flash with billowing blue smoke. The witch doctor says. " This is powerful healing, but you can only use it once a year! All you have to do is say, "1 2 3" and it shall rise for as long as you wish!"

The guy then asks the witch doctor, " What happens when it is over?" The witch doctor says, " All you or your partner has to say is, " 1 2 3 4 " And it will go down. But he warned, it will not work again for another year!" The guy goes home and that night is ready to surprise his wife. So he's laying in bed with her and says " 1 2 3 " and suddenly gets an erection.

His wife turns over and says... " What did you say " 1 2 3 " for ?"

Lounging at the movies: Van Helsing, Troy, In America, etc.

Van Helsing: starring Hugh Jackman (Wolverine from X-Men), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), who is very easy on the eyes, and others. The first couple of minutes of this movie resembled a 1950's style Frankenstein film. As much as we where looking forward to this movie we thought it was a little hoakie. Van Helsing, a Vampire etc. hunter is supplied weapons from a "Q" (from Bond) type character, only he is a Monk, almost. We fell in love with Igor and his dry humor. For your own humor pay attention to the wives of Dracula when they are just hanging out in the background. Overall the movie had some serious action but a fairly confusing plot pertaining to Van Helsing's past and family line.

Troy: Brad Pitt and others. Nice cinematography but a pretty straight forward story. No surprises just a buff Brad Pitt all sweaty and dusty with a big sword.

Starship Troopers 2: What were they thinking. We loved the first one, they should have left it at that.

In America: Starring Samantha Morton, Paddy Considine, Djimon Hounsou, Emma Bolger, Sarah Bolger, Juan Hernandez, Nye Heron, Rene Millian, Jason Salky, Michael Sean Tighe, non of who we where familiar with.

This may become one of our favorite movies. Great dialog and a great story of family in a strange land. 8 thumbs up. A true story of a family from Ireland packing up and moving to America. A young couple with two young daughters moves to New York city so Dad can work as an actor. New York does not work out as they expect but family has a way of pulling them through. Excellent film, a must see. Bring tissue.

Stuck On You: Matt Damon (Talented Mr. Riply etc.) and Greg Kinnear (Auto Focus, it sucked) and Eva Mendez (Once Upon A Time In Mexico). Matt and Greg are conjoined twins. Funny but fairly dumb humor pertaining to the condition.

B. K. Lounge Eats: Cuban Pork Loin
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Cuban Pork Loin

This is a bit of a carry-over from the Pressed Cuban sandwich (recipe April Lounge Lizard). These eats are a little labor intensive but that is what beer is for. Start in advance, be prepared and you will receive great enjoyment from this meal.

• 4 Lb. Pork Tenderloin
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• 1 small onion, minced
• 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
• 2 limes zested
• 1 large orange zested
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon course black pepper
• 1 teaspoon oregano

Take minced onion, garlic, lime zest and orange zest and pulverize into a paste or as close as you can get. Add salt, black pepper and oregano. Add some juice from limes if you like.

Rub this marinade into and all over pork loin and let sit for at least 1 hour in a zip lock bag.

While you are waiting, make the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

• 1 large Red Bell Pepper
• 1 Habenaro Pepper,
ooseeded and minced
• 1/2 block of Cream Cheese,
ooroom temperature
• 1 Tbs. Butter
• 1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
• Pinch Salt

Preheat oven to broil. Cut Bell Pepper into two equal halves and place in broiler, skin side up, for about 8 minutes or until well roasted. Place roasted peppers in paper bag for 15 minutes and turn oven down to 425 degree.

Place minced Habenaro pepper, cream cheese, butter and salt into a bowl.

Remove roasted pepper from bag and remove charred skin. Mince the roasted meat and add to ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

In a large, hot iron skillet sear Pork Loin on all sides till brown. Then place in preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until internal temperature is 140 degrees.

Remove and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce drizzled over pork at your discretion.

Lounging: Indoor VS Outdoor




Clothes: usually necessary
No need for clothes
Cocktails: need umbrellas
We don't need no stinking umbrellas
Bathroom: usually inside
No problem
Sun Burn

No problem

Not Allowed
Shoes optional
Shoes optional
Rain; usually has no real disadvantage
Not a problem
Walking around: More abstract boundaries and obstacles
More defined boundaries and obstacles
Lightning/Thunder: Thunder is not a problem. Lightning could be a problem especially with an 8 ft. tall whiskey drinker with bling.
Not a problem
Bon Fires
Usually not a good idea
Observing your neighbors
Hard to do
Stumble over twigs and other outdoor obstacles
Sleeping in the wild
You are still taking your chances

In Conclusion: Put an umbrella in your cocktail, get out the sun screen, put on some clothes, grab some diapers, fire up the grill, stay away from the 8 foot tall whisky drinker with bling and enjoy the great outdoors. Lounging outdoors is a far superior, be it at a beer garden or while camping,
