Sea Monkey Day Cocktails

NOTE: Old Sea-Monkey aquarium as glass = cool
Drinking Sea-Monkeys = not cool
D'oh! I got so caught in my life as a dad, husband, comedian and comic book reader that I lost track of my responsibilities as Sea-Monkey blogger number one. Yes, I missed National Sea-Monkey Day on May 16th this year.

The fine folks at celebrated the important national holiday by posting the following Sea Monkey cocktails. Your Sea Monkeys do not want to drink these. They want YOU to drink them, preferably after you've fed them and put them somewhere safe, secure and out of the way.

Sea Monkey Martini
recipe adapted from RA Sushi Bar & Grill, Miami, FL
* 1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
* 1 1/2 oz Skyy Infusions Raspberry Vodka
* 1/2 oz Black Raspberry Liqueur
* 1 oz Cranberry Juice

Glass: Cocktail
Garnish: Orange Wheel
Pour pineapple juice into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and shake with ice. Strain slowly over the pineapple juice and try to keep the two layers separated. Float an orange wheel for garnish.

* 1/2 oz Blue Curacao

Layer ingredients in order. Be sure that the Goldschlager has been completely chilled.

Sea Monkey Soup?!

Don't panic, the recession has not yet gone so deep that we're raising amazing pet Sea Monkeys for food (though their less hybrid cousins have been feeding the fishes for years). This amazing painting is by Ron English and his site is worth checking out for lots more fantastic art.

Photo: Sea Monkey With Egg Sack

While perusing Flicker I found this great picture. The photographer says:
"This is the photo I've been waiting for! 2 of the sea monkeys from my 2nd batch were mating for days with no results. This female from my 3rd batch had been swimming around for several days with a male attached.
Tonight they were separated at last, and when I looked closer, I saw a dark lump on her abdomen.
I took dozens of photos (using Super Macro) then cropped them to get a good view."
