Tequila Canyon

Tequila Canyon

Tequila Canyon

Tequila Canyon – I’ve never been a big fan of tequila so the idea of a tequila canyon has never crept into any of my fantasies… a rum canyon and I may get my swimming trunks and take a dip but tequila… nah…  But I have to say this drink, tequila and all, is pretty tasty!  Not my first choice but I wouldn’t say no to a free refill…

Start diggin’ your own Tequila Canyon:

  • 1½ oz tequila
  • ⅛ oz Triple Sec
  • 4 oz cranberry juice
  • ¼ oz pineapple juice
  • ¼ oz orange juice
  • 1 slice ‘o lime

Drink Tip: Like I said, I’m not a big fan of tequila so I wouldn’t mind mixing this up with something different. I haven’t tried anything else yet but if you do… send me a tip and let me know how it turns out!

Edith’s Fizz

Edith's Fizz

Edith's Fizz

Edith’s Fizz – How I imagine this going down…

Archie – “Edith get me a beer will ya?”
Edith – “Oh, here ya go Archie!”
Archie –“Aw jeeze Edith this ain’t a beer.”
Edith – “I know Archie, I made it myself, I call it an Edith Fizz.”
Archie – “More like a Dingbat Fizz!

Head to the kitchen and mix up your own:

  • 1½ oz white wine
  • ½ oz maraschino Liqueur
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz soda water

Drink Tip: With only a little bit of maraschino liqueur and white wine, there isn’t enough alcohol in this drink to get a fly buzzing… but since you already opened a whole bottle of wine and only used 1½ ounces to make this drink… no reason to let the rest go to waste!

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!

Boston Burnout

Boston Burnout

Boston Burnout

Boston Burnout – What could get me to not wear my drinkin’ hat for today’s drink? (if you haven’t noticed I’ve been wearing the same hat every day… kinda like my drinking uniform) Well, if the name of the drink has got “Boston” in it then I got to represent!  This is a pretty intense drink with five different kinds of alcohol and a little Tabasco sauce… not bad… a pretty tasty drink…

How to be a Boston Burnout:

  • 1 shot root beer Schnapps
  • 1 shot amaretto
  • 1 shot butterscotch Schnapps
  • 1 shot Bacardi 151 rum
  • 4 shots Bailey’s Irish Cream (got to Irish it up, it’s a Boston drink after all!)
  • few drops of Tabasco sauce

Drink Tip: The book says you’ve got to slam this drink… I got no need for that, so I added some ice, kicked back and really enjoyed this one..

ASS

ASS

ASS

ASS –  OK, so it’s the 3rd quarter of the of the AFC Division game and the Steelers just tied the game with the Ravens.  Being from Massachusetts (yes, I’m a Masshole) and a life-long Patriots fan, I obviously have a very biased opinion of the Steelers that coincides with the name of today’s drink… but I have to say that I’m rooting for the Steelers right now (they just recovered a Baltimore fumble…) only so that they can get their asses kicked by New England next week! UPDATE: Let’s go Steelers, beat the Jets next week!

How to be make an ASS:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 splash of apple Schnapps

Drink Tip: When you do the shot, try not to get any up your nose…. man, that burns!

Disco Ball

Disco Ball

Disco Ball

Disco Ball – Sometimes when you’re feeling down (like when the Patriots lose to the Jets) the only way to feel better is to get the disco ball spinning and just dance!  This drink was hot but goes down smooth – just like my dance moves!

Disco Ball:

  • 1 oz melon liqueur
  • 1 oz cinnamon Schnapps

Drink Tip: The book recommends chilling with ice and straining… do whatever you want but please, no disco music… I was just kidding about the dance thing!

Death Sentence

Death Sentence

Death Sentence

Death Sentence – When they said line up for shots they weren’t kidding!  This drink was a death sentence… the taste, the burn, the after-taste, more burning, the burn now traveling up  my nose…

Make your own Death Sentence:

  • 1/3 oz bourbon
  • 1/3 oz Jägermeister
  • 1/3 oz dark rum

Drink Tip: Don’t do it!

    After-Work Special

    After-Work Special

    After-Work Special

    After-Work Special – After work, before work, during work… hey, this is a pretty tasty drink that should be enjoyed any time!  Bring back the days when there was a mini-bar in every office… back when it was not only acceptable to have a bottle in your desk, it was rude to not offer a drink to every person that walked into your office… yeah, I watch a lot of old movies… oh, and Mad Men, great show, watch it Sundays @ 10:00 PM et/pt on AMC…

    How to make an After-Work Special:

    • 3 oz amaretto
    • 2 oz coconut rum
    • 1 oz white rum
    • 3-6 oz orange juice
    • 3-6 oz pineapple juice

    Drink Tip: Orange juice, pineapple juice, almonds, coconut… this is about the healthiest thing I’ve had in recent memory, sounds like a nutritious breakfast!  So if you work from home why wait?  Have one of these babies at your desk while still in your PJs! (OK, so the almonds and coconut is flavored liqueur, but orange AND pineapple juice, c’mon!)

    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?

    Sundance

    Sundance

    Sundance

    Sundance – Today’s drink was originally scheduled to be a Hong Kong Fizz but  screw ‘dat … I deviated away from the book for today’s drink!  I went with a “Sundance” in honer of the Sundance Film Festival which kicks off today… I already drank the drink (actually drinking it while I type this) and took pics but will have to wait until later to post since I have to head to the airport to catch a flight to Utah for…  the Sundance Film Festival 🙂

    UPDATE: OK, I’m in Utah now… saw three movies today and still have time to update this blog… yes, I’m that good… and oh yeah, the drink was pretty good also, just wish I could say the same for the first couple movies…

    Can’t make it to the festival? Then just drink it:

    • 1 oz Johnnie Walker Red Label
    • ¼ oz cherry brandy
    • ¼ oz  dry vermouth
    • ¼ oz orange juice

    Drink Tip: Toss a couple cherries into that mo’fo’
