Horney Grandma

Horney GrandmaHorney Grandma

One of the challenges when I’m having my “drink of the day” while out at a restaurant or bar is finding something unique that I haven’t had yet this year.  When I explain to the bartender or waiter my “different drink every day for an entire year” resolution and ask if they have a unique house special or something local that you don’t find anywhere else… some will be helpful and get creative in coming up with something but most… eh, not so much.  Most will say they  don’t know… whatever is in the menu… and that’s where we got today’s horney grandma – in the menu.  Why on earth would you ever put a horney grandma in the menu?  Other than someone like me, who is looking for the most obscure drink listed, would ever say “Ahhh yeah, I think I ‘ll go for the horney grandma.”  I realize “horney” part is a play off of the Hornitos tequila used but why did you have to drag grandma into this?

Horney Grandma margarita recipe:

  • Hornitos Silver Tequila
  • Triple Sec
  • Grand Marnier (maybe the “grand” is where they got grandma…? But c’mon they must be something else that is grand that you can pair with horney!)

Drink Tip: Go ahead, try your best when ordering but when I tried to be funny with the cute waitress when ordering the horney grandma… I got no-reaction-at-all… yeah….

Seven Dials Cocktail

Seven Dials Cocktail

Seven Dials Cocktail

Seven Dials Cocktail Shake – Now this seemed interesting, a drink with an egg yolk in it! I was excited to make this one… I mixed it up… and… eh, it was OK… Seemed like it was missing something so I added more ice, more heavy cream, more dark crème de cacao (chocolate liqueur) and threw it in all in a blender… now we’re talking!

My version of Seven Dials:
(If you want the original version, Google it or buy “the book“)

  • 1 oz cognac
  • 2 oz dark crème de cacao (chocolaty goodness)
  • 1 tbls of Grand Marnier
  • 2 oz double cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • lots of ice and toss it all in a blender

Drink Tip: Don’t forget to put the cover on the blender before turning it on! …messy, messy, messy… or better yet, go out and get a Wendy’s Frosty and just add the alcohol!

European – It’s the drink of the day but I’m headed in the opposite direction… flying from Boston to Los Angeles so I didn’t have time to mix it up myself but that’s why they invented airport bars, so busy travelers could fulfill their dream of drinking every day!  I looked up the recipe on my phone, showed it to the bartender and even though they were missing one of the ingredients she was able to mix up something close. She also had a pretty steep hand as she poured the drink, just two of ’em and my cheeks went numb… now that’s a good drink!

European
Since we modified it we’ll call this a “Boston European”

  • 1 oz gin
  • ½ oz cream sherry
  • 1 oz vermouth
  • 1 tsp Grand Marnier
  • 1 maraschino cherry (add a little of the cherry juice)

Drink Tip: Be sure to make it a double… Shake it up, pour it over ice, knock it back and feel the tingle as your face goes numb! (and don’t miss your flight)
