The Hang Glider Recipe Information
Originated at Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys. When made properly, this is an extraordinarily beautiful-looking drink; very eye-catching. The story is, one night four buzzed guys walked into my bar and asked me, "If there was ever a drink called a Hang Glider, what would you put into it?" I thought of a hang glider sailing through the sky and clouds, high above the Earth, and voila, the cocktail was born. Afterwards, and after belting back a few, the accidental similarities to the taste of the B-52 became apparent, and we found it both odd and coincidental that B-52's and hang gliders are all flying machines. We then started describing the Hang Glider as the 'little brother' of the B-52.
