Sounds like it came out nicely.

I like that you went with a pink straw, bold move.

It was surprisingly tasty. The coconut came through nicely and there was a bit of a zing from the sour cherry. I left out the line on the second one as I thought it wasn't needed. I was wrong. The lime added some nice flavour to it too.

As much as I blamed it on my wife. It was actually my choice lol. I couldn't have an orange one because the drink is kind of orange. It was a choice between yellow and pink and I chose pink.

Cool. Now you can start changing the base spirit to see what other drinks you can come up with.

When I am not drinking scotch I enjoy the occasional Absinthe Cooler.
Fill rocks glass w/ ice
1oz Absinthe
1oz sweet anise liqueur like sambuca or anis escarchado
fill with club soda

Delicious and Dangerous!! (Absinthe can be up to 80% alcohol, and sambuca is 42%)

I have an Absinthe fountain so at some point I may do a traditional preparation.

In true Christmas fashion, my sister in law lovingly sends pictures to remind me that I am NOT there with them for the holidays...again.

I thought we (and by we I mean you) could whip this one up for Zazz for Christmas Eve

Appropriately named the Zaza.
Merry Christmas!

Here, let me help you.

A co-worker gave my wife this stuff:


Which she thought tasted vile. I was asked to try and make it taste better so I whipped this up for the girls. It's a take on a Cranberry Smash but they kept calling them crackberries since they went down quick.
    2 Ounces of disgusting Jack Daniels Winter Jack
    1 Ounce spiced simple syrup (recipe previously provided)
    1 Ounce tart cherry juice
    1 Ounce lemon juice
    20 Cranberries (I used some from my yard that I kept frozen)

    In shaker muddle frozen cranberries with syrup, lemon and cherry juice. Add disgusting stuff and shake, without ice, until mixed. Pour into a rock glass filled with ice.

Or you could have this. Since we just got back from New Orleans I wanted to make one of the most famous cocktails from the city. Created in the 1930's it is one of the best post-Prohibition cocktails. The Vieux Carre:
    1 Ounce Rittenhouse rye

    1 Ounce VSOP cognac
    1 Ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
    1 Teaspoon Benedictine
    1 Dash angostura and peychaud bitters
    1 Lemon peel for garnish

    Mix all ingredients over ice until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass with one large ice cube and garnish with the lemon peel.

Or maybe this. My buddy likes beer-based cocktails so I made this one for him which is a riff on a shandy.
    1 Bottle amber or dark ale
    1 Ounce peppercorn simple syrup
    1 Ounce Thyme simple syrup
    1 Ounce lemon juice

    Add the syrups and lemon juice to a beer glass. Slowly pour beer in and give a couple of spins with a bar spoon to mix.

I'm happy to report I've never tried that.
I wonder why your wife's co worker dislikes her so much?


I think if you have to put that much sugar in something...yuck but, at least their kidneys got cleaned out (from the cranberries).

Apple cider and whiskey!

Still trying to wrap my head around that one.

The guy said, 'You like cider!', and she said, 'I hate whiskey!'

Someone else gave her a jumbo bottle of Rumchata which she likes with a little grated nutmeg on top.

I agree with her on all of those points.

yeah, that stuff goes quick, the girls like it. It's low in alcohol but actually tastes pretty good. I made my own version once but the amount of work to make horchata is not worth it since this stuff is rather inexpensive.

Now, I'm off to cook breakfast and drink bloody marys. Try not to be too jelly.

That one for sure looks yummy although not a huge beer fan, I'd try it.

The one above... The Vieux Carre...

Definitely take one of those.
STAT.

You should try it, the simple syrup and lemon juice add an interesting set of flavor profiles. Just make sure it is an ale since lighter beers would get too washed out.

Here's a few new ones I made over the weekend.

    2 Ounces Rittenhouse 100 rye
    1/2 Ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
    1 Dash angostura bitters
    1 Dash orange bitter
    1 Orange twist for garnish

This one I made for my friend who said she was not a fan of cognac. she is now a fan of cognac. Make sure to use higher quality liquor, not the VS or VSOP releases. This one is courtesy of Death and Co, The Ingénue:
    2 Ounces Pierre Ferrand cognac
    1 Ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
    1 Ounce cinnamon simple syrup
    1 Orange twist for garnish

    Mix all ingredient over ice and then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with orange twist.

Here's another Pre-Prohibition drink that takes it name from the famous horse stables that used to be located in Wayne, New Jersey (where yours truly went to high school). The stables also gave their name to a horse race you may have heard of. The Preakness:
    1 1/2 Ounces over-proof bourbon (at least 100)
    3/4 Ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
    1/4 Ounce Benedictine
    1 Dash aromatic bitters (I used DSB brand)
    1 Orange twist for garnish

    Mix all the ingredient over ice until well chilled. Strain into a couple glass and garnish with orange twist.

When you do make it to New York this is one of many neat places you need to stop, The Campbell Apartment (temporarily closed for renovations), It is located inside Grand Central Terminal and most people do not even know it is there.


They make a very cool cocktail called the Prohibition Punch which recalls the style of drinks in that era where juices were used to mask cheap booze. This one is an improvement since we don't use cheap booze. Prohibition Punch:
    1 1/2 Ounces Appleton Estates V/X rum
    1/2 Ounce Grand Marnier
    1 Ounce champagne or prosecco
    2 Ounces passion fruit juice
    1/2 Ounce cranberry juice
    1/2 Ounce lemon juice

    Add all ingredient except champagne to a brandy snifter. Add 6-8 ice cubes and mix lightly. Top with champagne.
