New Favorite Alcoholic Drinks

18 Aug

This summer I really made it my mission to try new combinations of booze, I was getting bored of the same vodka/rum/whiskey and coke drink. Heres some familiar, and unfamiliar drinks I’ve found to be awesome:

1. Bloody Mary

A bloody Mary is an acquired taste being that its spicy which many people don’t like in a drink, but i had my first this summer and loved it. Try one for yourself:

8 oz good tomato juice
3 oz vodka
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
fresh lemon wedge
fresh ground black pepper

Fill a large glass with ice. Coat the ice with black pepper and Worcestershire sauce, then add remaining ingredients. Pour contents into a shaker and shake well. Pour back into glass and grind a bit more pepper over the top. Garnish with a fresh celery stalk.

2. Shit In the Grass (Shot)

This shot tastes far better than it sounds. a green mint liquor, baileys or a small bit of Pina colada mix for a floating surface, and chocolate syrup on top to look like a shit on the grass.

3. Alien Brain Hemorrhage (Shot)

 Unlike a shit in the grass, where it looks kinda questionable but tastes amazing, this one is purely for looks, it actually tastes pretty gross but its awesome to show your friends.

Fill a shot glass halfway with peach schnapps. Then Pour Bailey’s on top. After the shot is almost full, add a small amount of blue curacao. After it settles, add a small splash (or a few drops) of grenadine syrup. The grenadine syrup somehow doesnt mix well with the other ingredients creating a water and vinegar look to it, creating your alien brain hemorrhage

4. A Flaming Dr. Pepper

 I first discovered this drink reading I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (A review soon to come) and had to try it out for myself. Basically put 3/4 of a shot glass of amaretto, then top it with Bacardi 151, have a glass of beer half full, ignite the shot, let it burn for a few second, drop it in the beer and drink. Tastes just like Dr. Pepper, oh and don’t kill yourself in the process.

5. Dirty Monkey

 A perfect frozen summer drink with an even better name because of the sexual connotation.

1 oz rum or vodka

1 oz creme de bananes

1 oz creme de cacao

1 oz Kahlua coffee liqueur

2 scoops vanilla ice cream or milk

Half of a Banana

Chocolate Syrup

Blend six ice cubes with ice-cream and banana in a blender until smooth. Add liqueurs and continue blending, again until smooth. Add more ice-cream if needed (for milk-shake consistency). Pour into a highball glass, and serve.
