Dirty Hairy Monkey Cocktail

Tracy Byrne

Dirty Hairy Monkey Cocktail | Pale YellowIn Costa Rica there was a lot of drinking, when it's free, there is no reason to go for it.  We made our own sangria at lunch from wine and fruit, had pre-dinner cocktails, wine with dinner, and our post-dinner toast.  But the best drinking moments took place at the swim up bar.  Every pool should have a swim up bar. Dirty Hairy Monkey Cocktail | Pale YellowWhen you're enjoying happy hour in a pool, fruity cocktails are a must! Whether you fancy mojitos, daiquiris, margaritas, or pina coladas, your drink should be cold, colorful, and delicious.  Sometimes the drinks weren't very strong, but there is an easy fix - "strawberry daiquiri con mucho rum, mucho, mucho rum!"

Cocktail Time | Pale YellowAwesome Spanish aside, there was a "drink-of-the-day" at the resort.  One of the drinks was called a dirty monkey.  I think it was called a dirty monkey, honestly I can't remember and I kept calling it a hairy monkey.  No matter, I Googled the cocktail stateside and made my own adjustments.

Dirty Hairy Monkey Cocktail | Pale YellowThis doesn't take exactly like what I had in Costa Rica, but close enough!  Cold, fruity, strong, and a slight hint of banana and chocolate.  The only way to improve the cocktail is to drink it in a pool instead of at the table while working on homework.  Boo to homework, yay to dirty, hairy monkeys!
