As a gift to you all, this is THE girly drink.  It is not girly because it is tropical and smooth, although it is. Or because it makes you want to put your toes in white sand and turn your face to the sun, which it does. Or because it makes you want warm water all over your body.  It is THE girly drink because I guarantee it will make you giggly.  VERY giggly.

Yield: 1 cocktail

3/4 ounce Bombay gin
1 ounce Remy Martin cognac
1/2 ounce Cointreau
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 1/2 teaspoons superfine sugar
1 teaspoon fresh pineapple juice

Quarter fill a shaker glass with ice. Add and shake together all the ingredients, and serve in a chilled martini glass. Sip slowly.  Giggle charmingly.

This recipe is from Mark Miller's cookbook, THE COYOTE CAFE.  It was created by the bartender at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.  Inspired.

BTW, if I ever get motivated to take pictures of food or drink, it'll be a miracle. So don't anyone hold their breath.
