I am not sure which reference to my title is more apropos; Ripley’s Believe It Or Not or the theme song to Greatest American Hero.  In any case, I passed.  I was shocked.  The test was supposed to be in two parts, the first written and then the practicals.  I felt confident about round one but thought I’d bomb the second half of the exam, which required me to make drinks on demand for the instructor (12 in 7 minutes or less).  Alas, he handed me my test and said, “It’s a full class today.  You were the first to hand in your written exam with a score of 97.5%.  I know you’ll pass so you can go.” I stood there dumbfounded unsure whether he was joking or might change his mind.  I accepted and bolted, certificate in hand. 

I think I’ll go celebrate with a Zombie…

You’ll need a pint glass filled with ice.  In order pour:
1 ounce light rum
½ ounce almond liqueur
½ ounce Triple Sec
Sweet & Sour
Orange Juice
Float ½ ounce of 151 rum on top
Garnish with a orange & cherry
