A Gilligan's Island, but not the one with the Harlem Globetrotters

As always the Veggie Dad is looking for new drinks to try on the weekends.  He found this drink on  This is called A Gilligan's Island.  To this name I added, but not the one with the Harlem Globetrotters.  This addition refers to an event from the Veggie Dad's childhood.  If you will allow, please let me take you way back to the 70's when households had neither cable nor multiple TVs. The young and future Veggie Dad was watching a now famous flea-flicker play in a football game, and his little brother, the future Veggie Brother-in-Law, changed the TV channel to The Harlem Globetrotters visit Gilligan's Island.  A fight ensued which ended with the future Veggie Dad, placing the future Veggie Brother-in-Law's head under the runner of a rocking chair with the intent to cause harm.  This is an often repeated story in the Veggie Dad's family and always the Veggie Dad comes out the winner because well, it was a flea-flicker play which was interrupted.  And they say football is only big in the South.  Enjoy this cocktail and keep you head out for under any rocking chair runners.

Serves one (because if you stick your little brother head under the runner of a rocking chair you SHOULD drink alone)

1 ounce vodka
1 ounce peach schnapps
3 ounces orange juice
3 ounces cranberry juice

  1. Combine the above in an ice filled glass, stir and serve.
