Gilligan’s Island

Gilligan's Island mix drink recipe with Ginger and Mary Ann

Gilligan's Island

Gilligan’s Island – Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a tasty drink…  Didn’t have any orange juice (too lazy to go to the store) so I squeezed a couple oranges – I think that makes this drink a bit more authentic though… they had a lot of things on that island but they couldn’t make a run to the store either.  One thing I’m really surprised about this drink is that there isn’t any coconut juice in it, or at least some coconut rum…?  Think I may have to re-invent this drink…

Gilligan’s Island:

  • 1 oz peach schnapps
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 3 oz orange juice
  • 3 oz cranberry juice

Drink Tip: The big question is always Ginger or Mary Ann… I’d like to thing that girls these days are a little more open minded and there’s no reason to exclude anyone…

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)

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.

Winter Break

Winter Break

Winter Break

Winter Break – “Whooah, we’re halfway there…”  Today is the officail hafway point for winter… but I don’t see what the big deal is?  The weather today here in Southern California was no different than it was back in July… warm and sunny… (just had to throw that out there for all my friends and family back in Boston experiencing the worst winter they’ve ever had!)

How to have a Winter Break:

  • 1/3 oz Southern Comfort
  • 1/3 oz peach Schnapps
  • 1/3 oz banana liqueur

Drink Tip: If you hate the cold and snow of winter, mix yourself up one of these and then move your ass to someplace warm, jackass!

DJ Shooter

DJ Shooter

DJ Shooter

DJ Shooter – In the book this drink was scheduled for a few days ago… being the rebel that I am, I keep my own schedule – I’m crazy like that! This drink, originally scheduled for the 25th was to commemorate some scandal involving radio DJs taking bribes to play certain albums… well, if we’re to commemorate a day in history, today is the 28th so that doesn’t make sense so let’s see… January 28th, 1985 they recorded “We Are the World” and one year later on January 28th, 1986 the space shuttle Challenger exploded just after take-off.. there’s your two choices – raise your glass and drink to which ever one you think was the greater tragedy…

Make a DJ Shooter:

  • 3 oz peach Schnapps
  • 1½ oz gin
  • 1½ oz coconut rum
  • 1½ oz vodka
  • 1/3 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/3 oz orange juice
  • 1/3 oz cranberry juice

Drink Tip: Go easy on this one, there’s enough alcohol in this drink to blow your O-ring!

Southern Frost

Southern Frost

Southern Frost

Southern Frost – Today’s drink is a Southern Frost which is in tribute to one of my favorite Crosby Stills & Nash songs… you know how it goes.. sing the chorus with me:

“Think about how many times
I have fallen
Spirits are using me
larger voices callin’.
What heaven brought you and me
Cannot be forgotten.
I have been around the world,
Lookin’ for that woman/girl,
Who knows love can endure.
And you know it will.
And you know it will.
When you see the Southern Frost… what, it’s not? …oh, ahhh… never-mind….”

Make a Southern Frost:

  • 1½ oz peach liqueur
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 2 oz ginger ale
  • lot’s-o-ice

Drink Tip: Are you sure the song isn’t Southern Frost?

Red Hot Lover

Red Hot Lover

Red Hot Lover

Red Hot Loverred hot is an understatement, I got enough alcohol here to fuel a rocket!  Here’s the issue with all the booze – who wants just one red hot lover when you can have two!  There’s a recipe for a Red Hot Lover in “the book” but I came across another recipe online that was completely different… so now it’s decision time… what to do… who what to choose?  Well, I decided to take a chance, introduce the two drinks to each other and see if I could arrange a little ménage à cocktail…

I bought all the ingredients for both versions of the drink, mixed ’em both up and had a little taste test with a few people who happened to be hanging around the house.

Red Hot Lover #1 Red Hot Lover #2
  • 2 shots vodka
  • 2 shots peach Schnapps
  • 1 splash of grenadine
  • 3 oz strawberry margarita mix
  • 3 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 1/2 oz. bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. grenadine
  • Splash of pineapple juice
  • Fill with cranberry juice

I poured the drinks into separate glasses and sent everyone off with one in each hand for a little alone time, give them a try and then report back which one they thought was the better Red Hot Lover… after just a couple minutes (I was done in less then 30 seconds) the results were in and with a vote of 2-1, Red Hot Lover #1 became the choice drink of the night!

Drink Tip: Just accept it for what it is and and don’t try to change her… er, I mean it… After trying both drinks myself (and voting for #1) I started feeling a little adventurous, thought I could make them better, that I could take the best traits from each, mix them together to make the perfect Red Hot Lover for myself!  Well, that didn’t go as planned…  I won’t go into all the graphic details but let’s just say strawberry mix can make a sticky mess…

BELOW: Rate this drink from 1-10
