Brass Monkey

Got this dance that's more than real
Drink Brass Monkey - here's how you feel
Put your left leg down - your right leg up
Tilt your head back - let's finish the cup
M.C.A. with the bottle - D. rocks the can
Adrock gets nice with Charlie Chan
We're offered Moet - we don't mind Chivas
Wherever we go with bring the Monkey with us
Adrock drinks three - Mike D. is D.
Double R. foots the bill most definitely
I drink Brass Monkey and I rock well
I got a Castle in Brooklyn - that's where I dwell

(repeat chorus)

Cause I drink it anytime - and anyplace
When it's time to get ill - I pour it on my face
Monkey tastes Def when you pour it on ice
Come on y'all it's time to get nice
Coolin' by the lockers getting kind of funky
Me and the crew - we're drinking Brass Monkey
This girl walked by - she gave me the eye
I reached in the locker - grabbed the Spanish Fly
I put it with the Monkey - mixed it in the cup
Went over to the girl, "Yo baby, what's up?"
I offered her a sip - the girl she gave me lip
It did begin the stuff wore in and now she's on my tip

(repeat chorus)

Step up to the bar - put the girl down
She takes a big gulp and slaps it around
Take a sip - you can do it - you get right to it
We had a case in the place and we went right through it
You got a dry Martini - thinking you're cool
I'll take your place at the bar - I smack you off your stool
I'll down a '40 dog" in a single gulp
And if you got beef you'll get beat to a pulp
Monkey and parties and reelin' and rockin'
Def, def - girls, girls - all y'all jockin'
The song and dance keeping you in a trance
If you don't buy my record I got my advance
I drink it - I think it - I see it - I be it
I love Brass Monkey but I won't give D. it
We got the bottle - you got the cup
Come on everybody let's get ffffff

(repeat chorus)<

If it ain't beer or whiskey then who the fuck cares what it is.

Let the women drink it.

It's NOT good Bourbon in a clean glass. I think there was some sort of mix by that name 10-15 years ago. Probably some syrupy crap with a parasol.

I believe it is a kind of fortified wine, but don't quote me on that.

You're asking a guy who plays with dolls whether or not your drinking vodka makes you a sissy?

Vodka is fine as long as you don't mix it with more than two ingrediants.

And ice should always be one of them.

Yeah, but Brass Monkey isn't a wine, it's a pre-mixed mixed drink. Has several liquors in it as well as some other swill. I only know this because my first drunk was from a friend raiding his dad's home bar when we were about 14. We drank a whole bottle each of the 50 proof bilge, along with some "shots" of Seagram's 7.

Never again!

Brass Monkey

1/2 oz Rum
1/2 oz Vodka
4 oz Orange juice

Toss rum and vodka together and stir gently. Pour in the orange juice and shake well.
Pour over ice in a highball glass.

Not quite sure what the original concoction was, but it was dreamed up by a bartender at a bar/nightclub in Singapore named "The Brass Monkey." This particular bar was owned by a German by the name of H. E. Rasske. (I don't recall the names for which the initials stood) It was also said that Herr Rasske was a German spy, or a controller for those who spied for them, and other assorted agents in the Far East. If one went into the establishment, and took a pen and blocked out the letters "T, B, M, O, N, Y" on the cocktail coasters, it was part of an identification procedure which got one into the back room and Mr. Rasske. I would assume one either reported to him or, if an imposter, was shot.

I've had the pre-mixed stuff on a couple of occasions. Not too bad. It definitely has a citrus taste.

Beware, it will make your ears burn and make you get real loud.



Damn, now I kinda want some.

Ask my GF (now wife) about the time I pushed her home in a shopping cart after a night of Brass Monkey business.

vaguely recall Heubleins Brass Monkey, gotta be 30 years ago or more.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 5:05:39 PM EDT
You can buy it by the can, in those pre-mixed "Club" cocktails you see at the liquor store. I saw one of them called "Brass Monkey" and thought "oh, there really is such a drink."

I choose to totally forget it.

I remember it from the 70s. It was premixed in a bottle; IIRC, the majority of the alcohol was vodka. I also remember getting very sick from drinking it in mass quantities with my friend. Hurling type of sick...bad ju-ju.

I haven't seen it or touched it since the mid 70s.

Since Vodka is essentially water and alcohol, usually with flavoring ingredients carefully removed, it shouldn't be a big problem.
Rum and Gin, however, would be a different story.

I remember the drink and if you ask me it was so named because you had to have Brass Balls to drink it. If you weren't careful it would kick you in the brass monkeys.

texas tea-vodka, rum, triple sec, tequila

margarita-tequila, triple sec

sex on the beach-vodka, midori, chambord

surfer on acid (modern)--rum, midori, jagermeister

surfer on acid (traditional)--gin, midori, jager

liquid cocaine--151, rumpleminz

jolly rancher--crown, tuaca, peach schnapps

most cocktails combine multiple types of liquors and liquers.
