four score

It's a good Friday. No, not just for reasons related to the namesake holiday, but also because on this 10 April 2009, felix's daily starfish and waffles turns four. Yay, score!

The people's editor celebrates four years of felix's daily starfish and waffles with four editor-sized Four Score Orange-Mango Vodka Smoothies.

In commemoration of this momentous day, we've decided to shake the rust off of that drink-mixin' arm (or front leg, in the case of the editor) and come up with a celebratory beverage. The result? The Four Score Orange-Mango Smoothie, a drink so sublimely - well, smooth - you'll be pounding the table for at least four more. (Score!)

Four Score Orange-Mango Vodka Smoothie
500mL freshly-squeezed orange juice
4 scoops of mango sorbet
3 shots of vodka
2 mangoes
2 bananas
1 lime, juiced

Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend. Pour. Serve. Drink. Celebrate! Repeat four times. And then again. (And again). Here's to four more years!

Still thirsty? More original starfish and waffles drink recpies are listed on the left side of this webpage, under the heading "Bartending School". Enjoy!


  1. four years deserves four times as much vodka! (^O^)

  2. Anonymous ... fair enough, we'll drink to that! (^o^)

  3. I deeply respect the editor for drinking several times his bodyweight. Chin chin!

  4. Congrats on 4 years. 5's the big one, make sure the editor breaks out the tuxedo for that one.

  5. Amanda ... Well, as you know, those editors sure can drink ;o) ... cheers!

    Blake ... Thank you. Rest assured, it'll be one helluva party for number 5 and I think we can all safely assume that the editor will be pulling out all of the stops for that one.

  6. Congrats on 4 years! Come back and visit and we'll celebrate over some smoothies.

  7. Thanks, Donna! And we might be celebrating over some smoothies soon ... time is really going faster than it should.
