A shot made using equal parts Hot Damn and Malibu, to represent the Hot & Tropical aspects of the El Nino weather system that affected the US in the late 90's. Invented by a group of University of Montana students in 1998 an attempt to capitalize on El Nino's prominent place in the news. The plan was to order it as if it were a famous drink, then look at the bartender with distain when they didn't know what it was, and tell then the ingredients. Then, when you did the shot with your friends, you all shouted "El Nino!!!" in an attempt to start a trend. It did not catch on.
MAN 1: "Can I get 4 El Nino's please."
BARTENDER: "What the fuck's an El Nino?"
MAN 2: <scoffs>
MAN 1: "UH, duh, Hot Damn and Malibu."
Shots are made and served.
MAN 1 & MAN 2 & MAN 3 & MAN4: "EL NINO!!!!!"
MAN 3: <whispering> "Hey, this isn't bad."
