Whats your favorite mixed drink?
Stoli O on the rocks, or occasionally with a splash of cranberry juice.
It's sorta my signature beverage.
Double post: sorry
Flavored Stoli or plain?
Bourbon and dr. Pepper; Bourbon and Coke
Fuzzy navels are alright as far as fruity stuff goes.
Buorbon an dr.pepper ythat sounds good I like dr.pepper I will try that.
The O stands for Ohranj, as it's spelled on the label, or orange, as you or might spell it. It's yummy in a glass.
Captain and coke, vodka stinger, screwdriver. In that order.
Whats a vodka stinger?
In an oversized Tom Collins glass filled with commercially produced ice (harder and colder than possible from ice machines or your freezer) pour:
1 oz gin
1 oz vodka
1 oz plain curaçao
1 oz blue curaçao
Fill reminder of glass with a sour press (if you don't know what that is fill with equal parts Tom Collins mix and club soda)
Add a Maraschino cherry, sprig of mint and a long red straw. You'll have an inviting tall glass filled with a brilliant blue cocktail that will prompt your guests to inquire, "Is there any alcohol in this drink?" And after consuming two, drink a third and take a cab home. Despite being a bit complicated (not really, if you're behind a bar in San Francisco), this is a very refreshing adult beverage refreshment. Tastes great and great to look at.
When I can't locate blue curaçao I'll just make a pitcher of Grass Hoppers, using Half and Half.
Note: I began tending bar long before the invention of the Harvey Wall Banger and have equally old tastes in classic cocktails -- back in the day a Martini was always made with gin, Martini and Rossi vermouth, and garnished with two enormous pimento-stuffed olives. Oh, and we never had to pay income tax on tips, too.
I'm pretty simple - vodka + various kinds of fruit juices ... OR straight tequila
Doing the math this means you are pushing 80 years old because the HW was created in the early 1950s you'd be born about 1933-35 to be a bartender of the age of 18 or older........it's good to have mature flesh around here.
Beefeater gin and tonic.
Add a couple of dashes of Angostura Bitters, and it's heaven.
Long Island Iced Tea.
G and T with ice, lemon and lime and when I buy gin I add a couple of sliced hot chillies to the bottle and keep it at least a month before drinking in. Perfection.
jack and jill...
i am aware of my Jack Daniels blaspheme, but is tasty enough to dodge lightning bolts for.
I usually drink my bourbon neat--not much of a mixed drink person actually, but I do enjoy a good Bloody Mary on occasion.
This is a toughy!
Many moons ago when I was in University and had just got my first fake ID, I went with friends to a small bar in a rural town. I had near zero alcohol experience, so I let them order on my behalf and ended up with the bar's house cocktail they called a nuclear thunderfuck . It tasted like alcoholic Bazooka-Joe bubblegum and became my alcohilc vice until I graduated. I've never managed to find any recipe that tasted even remotely similair, so I am hanging on to the memories. :frown1:
I'm also a fan of the white russian, but I chalk that up to a certain movie more than actual taste.
i don't often drink spirits but when i do, ouzo goes with just about everything.
