The Captain with a Skirt!

Scotty’s Drink of the Week from the E3 2012 Review episode of Sanity Claws Radio!

Captain with a Skirt:  In a white wine glass, mix 2 oz of spiced rum with 2 oz of white wine.  Add 2 oz cola and ice cubes.  Garnish with a lime wedge.  I like lime.  A lot.

“The story behind the drink:

In the early days of television, shows were less scripted, and stars had to be ready for anything. Actors and comedians with a quick wit and no fear of the unexpected thrived. Milton Berle fit this description perfectly. He hosted his own show, which premiered on this date in 1948. It was originally dubbed Texaco Star Theater, and it was a smash success. Berle became a superstar almost immediately, earning the highest ratings on TV. Americans were drawn to his zany antics; he frequently preformed in outrageous costumes – even in drag – and the audience loved the adlibbed slapstick. Have a Captain with a Skirt as you think of some of your favorite stars who favor the feminine flavor of dress!”
