"Be sure to accompany this drink with music from a low-key steel drum band and 'lotsa lovin'. Like the song goes, 'Well I ask my lady what should I do to make she happy, to make love true.' She said, 'The only thing I want from you is a little piece of the big bamboo.'" from Tropic Cooking by Joyce LaFray Young
