For all VALIS’s many virtues, she lack the amenty of an ice-maker. Damn. So cocktail time can be a bit challenging. Today was a perfect, at-sea, going-to-Hawai’i day, and I had about 6 hours in between watches in the afternoon. I had done my laundry, and was really thirsty. I peaked into the excellent, large capacity fridge of VALIS, saw some Gatorade, and got inspired. I drank off some of the top of a 20 oz bottle of Gatorade (standard green flavor), and back-filled with about 3 oz of Mt. Gay Sugar Cane rum. Fantasitic! And so a new cocktail cooler was born, the Mt. Gaytorade.
