Yes, they call it the Coney Island Strong Man....not sure why. This cocktail is being blogged for.. "you know who you are"

The Coney Island Strong Man is a signature drink at Coppa's located at 253 Shawmut Ave., Boston, MA and costs $9.00.

Sounds ever so strange to me, but I think it just might work. This is the actual picture of the cocktail at Coppa's and I do love the glass.

The general manager at Coppa's says " It's something that people haven't seen before.... A lot of people squeeze lime or lemon in their beer anyway. This does all that for you, but we mixed in a little extra booze in there to get the job done."

BOTTOM LINE: Chartreuse makes everything better and the lager here explodes with sweetly herbaceous goodness!


1 oz yellow chartreuse
1 oz green chartreuse
3/4 oz lemon juice
1 Miller High Life Pony
Serve on the rocks in a tall mug (above)

MY BOTTOM LINE: Ya it's something people haven't seen before and maybe for a REASON????? Anything you add a little extra booze to MUST be good. To call a Miller High Life Pony a HERBACEOUS LAGER is a BIGGGGGGG stretch don'tcha think?????

But as always, I'll give it a go!
Happy Friday, Bernie
