The words Brass Monkey became part of the pop culture after the Beastie Boys song Brass Monkey.
(partial lyrics)
(chorus) Brass Monkey – that funky Monkey
Brass Monkey – junkie
That funky Monkey

Got this dance that’s more than real
Drink Brass Monkey – here’s how you feel
Put your left leg down – your right leg up
Tilt your head back – let’s finish the cup
M.C.A. with the bottle – D. rocks the can
Adrock gets nice with Charlie Chan
We’re offered Moet – we don’t mind Chivas
Wherever we go with bring the Monkey with us
Adrock drinks three – Mike D. is D.
Double R. foots the bill most definitely
I drink Brass Monkey and I rock well
I got a Castle in Brooklyn – that’s where I dwell

Try making a Brass Monkey drink and cranking up some Beastie Boys. After a couple drinks, I’m sure you’ll be singing along.
