Black Jack

Black JackBlack Jack

When you’re in a casino it just seems to make sence to order a drink called Black Jack…. just sayin’

Not sure exacly how this drink is made but I know that is has Jack Daniels, blackberry syrup…. and maybe some cranberry juice…?

Drink Tip: I need the tip on this one.. nut sure exactly what’s in it…

It’s a pretty basic drink but what makes this great is that when you’re in Vegas they make it in a gallon size jug that you can take with you as you walk the strip…

Seabreeze recipe:

  • Vodka
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Grapefruit Juice

Drink Tip: Don’t pay extra for that souvenir cup because you know that you’re not gonna go back for a discounted refill and will just throw it away when you’re done… why do I never learn!?

Double Trouble

Remember that TV show from the 80’s Double Trouble?  Yeah, that has absolutely nothing to do with this drink, just showing my age…

Double Trouble drink recipe: “You’ll be feelin’ single and seein’ double after a couple of these!” ~ Menu Description … I don’t have the exact recipe, just going off what was on the menu:

  • Start with their Pina Colada recipe and then add…
  • Banana Liqueur
  • Dark Rum
  • 151 Rum (that’s the double trouble part)

Drink Tip: Mix up one of these and then do a YouTube search for Double Trouble.. c’mon you remember… the twin sisters…

Sbarro Special

Sbarro SpecialSbarro Special

Like I mentioned yesterday… a few days of some DIY (DO It Yourself ) Make-up drinks.. but as long as it’s something different it qualifies for my resolution of a different adult beverage every day this year (can’t wait to get my full bar out of storage!)

My Sbarro Special mix drink recipe:

  • 1 part Coke
  • 1 part Dr Pepper
  • 1 part
  • Orange soda
  • Rum… lots ‘o rum

Drink Tip: Oh yeah, you got to get it at and drink it in a Sbarro cup in order for this to qualify as a Sbarro Special…

Strawberry Banana Rum Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Rum SmoothieStrawberry Banana Rum Smoothie

Ok, so I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately… technically homeless since I moved out of my apartment a month ago, put everything in storage and have been on the road ever since – so some of my drinks in the last few weeks are more of a DIY concoction (and will probably be a few more made-up drinks over the next few weeks until I find a place to live)… and here’s another one…

Strawberry Banana Rum Smoothie

  • Pre-made smoothie with banana and strawberries
  • Rum rum rum

Drink Tip: I recommend making this with fresh fruit in a blender (maybe add some vanilla ice cream) but sometimes when you’re on the road you just gotta do what you can with convenience store ingredients and cheap hotel room plastic cups…

Serrano Pineapple

Pulled another crazy drink off the menu at some restaurant… couldn’t remember what the waiter had said about all the ingredients so I pulled the recipe off the inter-web for ya…

Serrano Pineapple drink recipe:

  • Fresh Pineapple
  • Serrano Pepper
  • Cilantro
  • 1.5 oz Tequila Blanca
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz lime juice

Drink Tip: The recipe I found also said something about adding “1 drop of orange blossom water”… I don’t know about that.. sounds made-up to me like unicorn tears or something! But hey, what do I know….

Havana Club Anejo 7 Anos

With a name like Havana Club Anejo 7 Anos it sounds a lot more complicated than it really is… basically it’s just a Cuban rum…

Drink Tip: The makers of this rum tout it as complex, smooth, fine, etc… so I tried it on the rocks… have to admit, I’m a little low-brow and usually just like to mix my rum up with something…

West Coast IPA

Back on the West Coast so when in Rome…. down at some pizza joint in San Clemente today so I went with one of the local brews on tap (photo of the bottle is for entertainment purposes only)

Drink Tip: What can I say, it’s an IPA… either you’re gonna like it or not…

Venetian Monk

Not sure what Venetian monks really drink (always thought monks were into brewing beer) but I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say Italian monks aren’t really into tequila drink… but hey, I’m no monk some bottoms up.

Venetian Monk recipe:

  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 Muddled Blackberries

Drink Tip: Not much of a muddled drink kind of guy… I like to drink my drink and not have to chew any of it…

Raspberry Lime Rickey

Always has been one of my favorite summertime drinks… used to get these all the time as a kid at the ice cream stand down the street.  Well, this drink has an extra ingredient that wasn’t in my drink as a kid…

Raspberry Lime Rickey recipe:

  • 8 oz seltzer water (raspberry lime flavored if you got it)
  • Fresh Lime
  • 1+ oz of grenadine
  • Vodka… as much as you like!

Drink Tip: Warm summer day, a few of these and you’ll be feeling like a kid again!
