The "Bahama Mama", what started out as a classic rum punch to give any party a tropical flare has now become...a smoked sausage! Whether in your grocer's prepackaged deli meat section, or at the local convenience store/gas station; the Bahama Mama smoked sausage is up there with the all American hotdog.
First off, the drink:
Bahama Mama Cocktail
1/4 ounce coffee liqueur
1/2 ounce dark rum
1/2 ounce coconut liqueur
1/4 ounce 151 proof rum
juice of half a lemon
4 ounces of pineapple juice
Fill a tall glass (10 ounce capacity) with cracked ice; pour all the ingredients in and stir. Garnish with fruit (strawberry, pineapple, skewered cherries).
However, alcohol is not the main focus of this post; it is my husband Roy's passion for the smoked sausage. The smoked sausage; a mixture of beef and pork seasoned with a spicy blend and smoked to perfection. Warmed up on a grill, or, in the case of the local Maverik, the rolling grilling machine; placed in a warm potato roll and topped with a multitude of toppings. This is the breakfast my husband so desires when we are off adventuring; and I will hold you in suspense no longer.
Canyon Man Bahama Oh Mama
Spicy Brown Mustard
Sweet Pickle Relish
Sweet Banana Peppers
Pico de Gallo
Lots of Napkins
Place hot Bahama Mama inside potato roll; begin topping with ingredients layer upon layer; except the napkins of course. Eat, enjoy, use the napkins on face, hands and wherever else the toppings have landed upon.
When I first presented this masterpiece to Roy, he said, "Now how I am supposed to eat this?" I had given him a fork, but stated the point that, "a real man would pick it up and eat it"; he proved me correct.
After the first bite, his reaction was, "Oh yeah, now that's what I'm talking about!"
While I am not particularly fond of the Bahama Mama myself; it brings me happiness to see my hubby enjoy his food.
