Daiquiri Mix In A Tube

For those times when you drink alone
  [vote for,

Jimmy Stewart (overheard in a phone conversation):

"Well hello, Margot, how are things uptown?"

"Oh you do, do you? Well, alright then, let's hear it. What's the big idea."

"No offense, but that's been tried before."

"I see."

"Now wait just a minute, daiquiri mix in a tube, that's putting it differently!"



"I don't know..."

"Sure, sure they'd sell like hotcakes, alright. But you'd never be able to-- say now, you're not sore are you?"

"Well of course it's a good idea. It's a swell idea. Finest idea I've heard all day. No really, I mean that."

"Well, sure, folks'll go crazy for it, absolutely banana's, but there's no way it'll fly at the HalfBakery, dollface."

"Well, now, don't go and put it like that. That's not what I..."


"Well, fine then, if you feel that way about it."

"Sure, sure, and while you're there, send me up one of those daiquiri tubes for one. Looks like I could use it."

"Maybe I like it that way too, did you ever think of that?"

"No I'm not angry, Margot. Not really."

"Margot? Margot, are you there?"

"Will you look at that?" (rubs his chin and hangs up slowly) "Dame hung up on me."

ADDENDUM (per waugsqueke's request): This is a flexible plastic tube of daiquiri mix, contianing enough mix for one beverage. They could be sold in a box of a dozen or so. When a daiquiri is needed, you take the frozen tube and squeeze it, whack it on the counter and/or bend it nearly double in several places, thereby pulverizing the contents into the familiar slush for which daiquiri's are much sought. Once the mix has reached the right consistency (could also be further softened by leaving it on the counter, in the fridge or in the microwave), simply tear it at the small nick in the plastic near one end, squeeze the contents into a glass, and add rum. Make one or make half a dozen and never touch a blender.

Other notes: I don't know alot about plastics, but I've seen the kind of plastic I'm thinking of: fairly tough, but elastic, not prone to bursting or splitting. However, once a tear is begun, it tends to tear easily and fairly straight.

I may not spell daiquiri correctly, but at least I know how not to spell it. How to not spell it? [dijontoothpaste, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       What happened to Margot?
envy, May 30 2003

       And did he ever get his daiquiri? Some things are beyond me, and therefore beyond the pale. *rimshot to cymbal*

       Well, it helps to know that Margot is a six-foot invisible chipmonk. This conversation took place after several daiquiris.

       I've wrestled with spelling for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally learned to spell daiquiri.

       So this product of course would be for adults but something like Go-Gurt® - The Grab-n-Go Yogurt®?
Tiger Lily, May 30 2003

       //...something like Go-Gurt® - The Grab-n-Go Yogurt®?//   

       Brilliant! I mean yes. Naturally. Lose the blender.   

       Daquiri is a registered trademark of Go-Daquery - The Grab-n-Go Daiquiri. Not related to Dackery (see link).

       Ah, yes...Fridays...*hic*   

       Barkeeper, pour me another one of those Diraqis. *hips*
dijontoothpaste, May 30 2003

       -You have now obliged yourself to try baking a bread-like pudding of same concept.   

       Two flavors; marmite and vegemite.   

       Good luck.
Tiger Lily, May 30 2003

       Could you perhaps describe the idea more? This is just a packaging idea for daiquiri mix? How is a tube better/different from a bottle?
waugsqueke, May 30 2003

       tubes are better for snagging black holes...
Tiger Lily, May 30 2003

       [waugs]: //Could you perhaps describe the idea more?//   

       But of course, please see the new addendum to the idea.
dijontoothpaste, May 31 2003

       What is your point in crossposting my annotations, jurist? I asked a legitimate question and dijon appears to have answered it.
waugsqueke, May 31 2003

       strawberry juice and rum, right?
git, May 31 2003

       Here in Canada you can buy buckets of daiquiri mix, add rum, toss it in the freezer and serve as needed. Not single serving but same idea.
