One of the signature drinks back then was the Monorail Yellow. You can still find bar tenders who know how to make it, and it's worth asking. I LOVE this drink. It's rum based and definitely tropical in flavor. And this is when it pays to have a vintage cookbook - we have the recipe! At our latest get together with our former traveling buddies, we busted out the pitcher of Monorail Yellows to great cheers. We just can't help ourselves!
And just for you, dear readers, I have included the recipe here. Enjoy it! Until next time, may all your days be filled with fairy dust!
Monorail Yellow Cocktail
1.5 oz Rum
3 oz Orange Juice (We have also used an Orange Banana Juice)
2.5 oz Pineapple Juice
.75 oz Coconut Cream
3/4 C Crushed Ice
Combine rum, oj, pineapple juice, coconut cream and ice in blender. Blend thoroughly until there are no ice chunks. Pour into tall glasses and garnish with maraschino cherry.
