Iceberg & Titanic Cocktails

Iceberg and Titanic mixed drink cocktail recipe

Iceberg and Titanic

Iceberg & Titanic – Like Sonny and Cher or peas and carrots (or Jerry and a doughnut) you really can’t have a Titanic without an Iceberg.  So today as you mark the the 99th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic (as I’m sure everyone is doing… at least those of us looking for an excuse to drink)  raise a glass not only for the boat but also for the ‘berg that made it famous!  Hey, without the iceberg we would have missed out on the second highest grossing movie of all time, coming in at just under 2 billion buckaroos (yes, billion with a “B”)!  These two drinks work well together… play off each other nicely!

Iceberg Cocktail Titanic Cocktail
  • 1 oz white crème de menthe (oops, I used green, same thing just different color)
  • 1/2 oz peppermint schnapps
  • 1/2 oz Goldschläger
  • milk
    (mix ingredients with ice in a blender)
  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 oz Galliano
  • 1/3 oz dry vermouth
  • 1½ oz vodka
    (chill in a shaker with ice and strain)

Drink Tip: To make things more interesting I recommend doing a Google search for Titanic drinking games…

Black Bird Cider

Black Bird Cider drink recipe

Black Bird Cider

Black Bird (Raven) Cider –

Once upon a midnight quest, while I pondered what drink to test,
Over many a quaint and curious story of drunken lore,
While I poured, nearly spilling, to the top I kept filling,
As I added ice gently chilling, chilling the drink some more.
`’Tis the drink of the day,’ I muttered, `filling the drink some more –
Every day, like a wonderful chore.’

Black Bird Cider:

  • 1 shot blackberry Schnapps
  • 1 pint cider

Drink Tip: I like it, I’m thinking from now on we add a shot into every fruit beverage we drink, no matter where and when… but I think I’ll skip the plagiaristic poetry next time…

Snowflake mix drink recipe and review


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.


  • 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.

Boy Scout

Boy Scout mixed drink cocktail with peppermint schnapps, creme de cacao, whiskey, creme de menthe and a maraschino cherry.

Boy Scout

Boy Scout – This one seems a little strange to me… today’s drink from the book is a Boy Scout.  Yup, that’s right, we’re drinking to commemorate the incorporation of an organization for 11-18 year old boys whose rules (even if they were old enough to drink) prohibit the use of alcohol.  So raise your glass (and your middle finger) and do us all proud by earning that drinking badge!

Boy Scout

  • ½ oz peppermint Schnapps
  • ½ oz dark crème de cacao
  • ½ oz Tennessee whiskey (I used Kentucky)
  • 1 tsp of green crème de menthe
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Drink Tip: Chill the drink with ice in a shaker and then strain… then let’s go push some old ladies into oncoming traffic…
