A Caribbean Storm out of California

     My Friend Pete Cowper from California sent me this cocktail recipe that he was given by his friend Debi Stalder out of Simi Valley. Her husband Bill is one of my high school classmates. Debi's father Biff Adams was Merle Haggard’s drummer for 45 years. They are classic Corvette people who have a ’57 Fuel injected Corvette painted light blue with white coves.   They drive it all over the country with the original factory fuel injection still on it.
     This is an interesting cocktail that has a real fruity feel to it, but hidden below all of that flavor is a real potent kick.   It truly has earned the name "Storm", because it has the potential to just blow you away.
