In memory

3 Oct

Chupa, meet your cocktail namesake:

Chupa was an excellent pet. Not my pet, but one I became close to over the last several years. There was nothing like being woken up by the Chup-ster. Someone in St. Louis put your hands over Java’s eyes lest he see that. I swear cats can read only the things you don’t want them to.
I came across a recipe for a drink called the chupa cabra and thusly made it in her honor. Then I googled it and found a lot of different chupacabra recipes, all wildly different, but they all had tequila. So even if you don’t make this, do a shot and send some cat love.

Here’s to you, Chupa!

Chupa Cabra(slightly adapted from the Mixology app)

2 oz. white tequila
1/2 oz. Campari
1/2 oz. lime juice
3/4 oz. ruby red grapefruit juice
1 tsp. sugar
Dash of angostura bitters
Slice of lime.
Shake everything but the lime slice with ice then strain.

    Oh, so much sweet love to that little angel you were lucky to have known! I dedicate my glass of wine tonight to sweet Chupa (cuz God knows I cannot drink tequila…) :).

      Haha, I don’t think I finished that drink either. I thank you for the wine dedication:)

    Aww cute! I absolutely love cats, it’s a common thing among Russian females, i think. Cheers to Chupa!

      Thank you! Yes, kitties are good. Even for us non-Russian females. Although people are always telling me I look Russian so maybe that counts for something:)
