In honor of NASCAR weekend in Las Vegas, the Cabo Wabo Cantina continues to serve the perfect drink–the Can’t Drive 55.  It’s the perfect drink to make while you watch the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube.  The menu describes the Can’t Drive 55 as “Five different spirits, five different juices, in one very happy cocktail, featuring Sammy’s Beach Rum, Cabo Wabo blanco tequila, vodka, gin & Amaretto. Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, cranberry, fresh lime juice & a splash of grenadine.”

It sounds like the perfect drink to accompany a “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” weekend. 

For my make at home version, I’m going to use 1/2 oz. of each of the liquors and juices.  All over ice in a tall mixer glass with a cherry on top for garnish.  Hold on tight!  It should be a great race!
