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

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.
