A Toast to "Helo 66"

From Don Blair's book, Splashdown! NASA and the Navy,... 

  "Incidentally, when the crews of several of the Apollo 11 recovery helicopters invited me to join them at a popular Honolulu steak house prior to our sailing, they introduced me to the squadron drink, the Black Frog, and I still enjoy one occasionally 34 years later.  Two parts scotch and one part Kahlua... on the rocks.  Cheers!"





The smooth nature of scotch serves as a excellent base liquid

2 parts


Makes the beverage dark in color, like the wetsuit of a "Underwater Demolition Team" diver during recovery operations.   

1 part

Pour over ice (to make it cold like the ocean's water) and enjoy (like you just got home from the moon)!
