Happy Hour: Daylight Savings

As you may know (and if you're in America and don't know this, then quick change your clocks!), we sprung the clocks forward for daylight savings this past Saturday night/Sunday morning. Now, all last week I searched the internet for a drink that would convey that feeling, but I found nothing called "Daylight Savings" (or Spring Forward for that matter) and really thought it was a true shame. So this weekend, when I was at the Velvet Cantina, I convinced Peter (the fantastic bartender who's last name I never got) to invent one for me. Actually, he invented two.

The first version took inspiration from a Tequila Sunrise, and was beautiful to behold, but it was just too sweet (although Peter insisted it would be better with proper, fresh pineapple juice). The second version was much nicer and a bit more tart, in fact a few other people ended up ordering it as well.

To check out what he came up (there were two versions),

Version 1 DOES seem like it would be waay too sweet. Looks good though - would be great for those reeeeally hot days at the beach :)
