Tiger Blood

A winning Tiger Blood drink recipe that would even make Charlie Sheen proud!

There's no fear when you've got Tiger Blood!

Tiger Blood A winning Tiger Blood drink recipe that would make Charlie Sheen proud! I’m going off schedule for the next couple days or so and switching things up.  With his tiger blood and DNA of Adonis, the Sheen is a force that cannot be ignored so for the next week or so I’ll be creating drinks dedicated to the great quotes he’s been dropping on us.  A quick Google search and I found eight drink that have been created within the last week called Tiger Blood but non of them grabbed my interest so like a ninja assassin I decided to create one of my own… and it’s a pretty tasty one if I say so myself!

Tiger Blood drink recipe:

  • ½ oz Johnny Walker Red whiskey
  • ½ oz sloe gin
  • ½ oz cherry brandy
  • 3 oz cranberry juice
  • splash of grenadine

Drink Tip: Chill with ice in a shaker and strain… add a maraschino cherry if this is your first taste of the Tiger Blood!

Cosmonaut

Cosmonaut drink recipe with vodka and Tang, the drink of the astronauts

Cosmonaut

Cosmonaut – Like yesterday’s drink-of-the-day we’ve got ourselves another great breakfast drink… and this time I actually did have it for breakfast. Haven’t had Tang since I was a kid, didn’t even know they still still sold the stuff until I went looking for it to make this drink.  Kinda like a screwdriver for astronauts and kids (if kids drank vodka, which of course I don’t condone… publicly)

Cosmonaut:

  • 2 parts Tang
  • 1 part vodka

Drink Tip: Tastes even better when being drunk from a Scooby-Doo thermos while eating a Fluffernutter!

Snowflake(s)

Snowflake mix drink recipe and review

Snowflake

Snowflake – More like a blizzard than a single snowflake… the recipe called for Pear Liqueur but since I didn’t have any (and didn’t feel like going to the store) I decided to get creative but couldn’t decide on just one flavor so I mixed myself up four different flavored drinks… same recipe just a different flavored Schnapps in each.

Snowflake

  • 1½ oz pear liqueur
    • Peach Schnapps
    • Banana Schnapps
    • Butterscotch Schnapps
    • Root Beer Schnapps
  • 3 oz milk
  • crushed ice
  • 2-3 oz 7-Up

Drink Tip: Throw the booze, milk, and ice into a blender then top off with the 7-Up (or Sprite)

Italian Delight

 Italian Delight with the spaghetti and meatball

Got me the spaghetti and a-meatball with an Italian Delight... Fuggetaboutit

Italian Delight – Mamma-mia! Lazy Domenica, semplicemente per rilassarsi e guardare il gioco Celtics mentre celebrava il compleanno di Michelangelo 536a con gli spaghetti e la cena polpette e mescolando un italiano cocktail delizia coppia. Pretty drink luce con l’alcool solo essere una sola oncia di amaretto, non cattivi sapori come un milk shake.

Italian Delight:

  • 1 oz amaretto
  • ½ oz orange juice
  • 1½ oz cream
  • maraschino cherry

Drink Tip: Tastes kinda like a milkshake… why not do it up right and triple up the ingredients and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream…

Boston Cocktail

Boston Cocktail mixed drink cocktail recipe and review

Boston Cocktail

Boston Cocktail – If you’ve been following this blog you may have noticed that in all the pics I’m almost always wearing my “drinking hat” (a brown flatcap) but since today drink according to the book is called a Boston Cocktail it gave me an excuse to switch things up and go with my Sox hat… that and a Red Sox pre-season game was on TV today and we don’t get many of those out here on the West coast so I take it when I can get it … unfortunately this drink tasted about as good as the Sox played… split-squad action saw one game tied 4-4 and the second game lost 11-2… but hey, it’s only pre-season…

Boston Cocktail:

  • 3/4 oz gin
  • 3/4 oz apricot brandy
  • 1½ oz grenadine
  • ½ oz lemon juice

Drink Tip: Since today is National Absinthe Day it probably would have been a better choice.  The Boston Cocktail didn’t seem to bring the Sox luck anyway…

Hemingway

Hemingway mixed drink recipe

Playing the part of Hemingway, just chillin' on the couch with my pussy cats

Hemingway – What can I say about Hemingway that hasn’t already been said more eloquently? I don’t envy some of the hardships and tragedies he endured but I do admire his brilliance and the way he chose to live his life.

Little bit of a change-up… for the licorice liqueur I used Ouzo instead of Pernod like the drink recipe called for so I’m calling this drink a Greek Hemingway.  Those crazy Greeks drink Ouzo like water… I was drinking that stuff for breakfast over there…

Hemingway:

  • 3/4 oz licorice liqueur
  • 4 oz Champagne

Drink Tip: Follow the directions – I didn’t.  I just grabbed the bottles of ouzo and champagne and just started pouring both into a glass at the same time so I ended up with an 50/50 mix… that’s about 3 oz of ouzo instead of just 3/4 of an ounce.  First sip and I realized my mistake… that was one potent drink!

Special Delivery

Special Delivery mixed drink cocktail recipe and review

Hey baby, I got a Special Delivery for ya 😉

Special Delivery – According to the book, on this date back in the 1800’s congress decided that it was illegal to send any kind of pornographic material in the mail.  They later eased up a bit and decided it was OK if the material had some literary value ~ whatever that means? The Supreme Court addressed the issue again in the 1970’s and when Justice Stewart was asked how to determine what’s legal and what’s not, he replied “I know it when I see it.” Again, seems a little vague and open to interpretation.

Taken directly from the post office website:
13.5.4 Lewd or Filthy Matter
Obscene, lewd, lascivious, or filthy publications or writings, or mail containing information on where, how, or from whom such matter may be obtained, and matter that is otherwise mailable but that has on its wrapper or envelope any indecent, lewd, lascivious, or obscene writing or printing, and any mail containing any filthy, vile, or indecent thing is nonmailable (18 USC 1461, 1463).

From the little bit of research I did, this applies not only to the post office but to the distribution of naughty material in any form… mail, e-mail, web, or just handing something to another person… so that probably means that 98% of the websites on the internet are technically illegal and when it comes to email and cell phone cameras… we’re all criminals!

So anyway… This has nothing to do with me, I’m just bringing the drinks, whatever happens after that, as long as we don’t distribute the photos, we’re good…

Special Delivery:

  • ½ oz Southern Comfort
  • ½ oz peach Schnapps
  • 2½ oz sour mix
  • 2½ oz lemon-lime soda

Drink Tip: Personal preference but I like to go easy on the sour mix and use a little less.

Gun Barrel

Gun Barrel mix drink cocktail recipe and review

Gun Barrel

Gun Barrel – Without this day in history we wouldn’t have Western movies, Clint Eastwood, duels at high noon or Russian Roulette… 175 years ago today Sam Colt introduced the revolver to the gun loving world.

How to stare down your own Gun Barrel:

  • 1½ oz vodka
  • ½ oz Triple Sec
  • splash of cranberry juice

Drink Tip: If you only add a little bit of cranberry juice the drink comes out pink… make sure you add enough cranberry juice so that the drink turns red, red like blood (insert evil laugh here)
