Cocktails

50 replies • Last post

Hi everyone!

What's your favorite cocktail, beer or wine? I'm looking for some new things to try. I do love a good mojito or margarita. I'm a fan of Proseco and dry red wines.

I recently tried a Portuguese beer called Super Bock. I loved it! In the states I loved a cold Miller Lite.

Cocktail recipes welcome!

Beerita

Mix the following:
6 pack of light beer or whatever you like
12 oz. can of semi- frozen limeade

Serve with a lime wedge.

Yummy!

I am a beer fan. Outside of making my own I like Guinness and Bell's Oberon, a locally brewed summer ale from Michigan. When it comes to mixed drinks I love Crown Royal and Coke, or Johnny Vegas.

Johnny Vegas is:

1/3 shot of Jose Cuervo Gold
1/3 shot of Watermelon Pucker
1/3 shot of Red Bull

It is outstanding! You should definitely try it!

Beer and wine (mostly red) for me! Some beers I don't mind are James Squire, Hoegaarden, and anything German or made by those crazy Belgian monks (get to a Belgian Beer Cafe if they have one where you live).

Johnny Vegas sounds like a heart starter you'd sink into at about 5am after an all nighter. I hate tequila but I'll try anything once. I'll have to give it a go.

The Johnny Vegas looks delish! The Watermelon Pucker is what did it for me. Seems like it would be so refreshing.

Here's a sour one. This is fun to give a friend and watch their face as they take a sip. Martini

Motherpucker
1 oz vodka
1 oz Grape Pucker schnapps
1 oz Sour Apple Pucker schnapps
1 oz Cheri-Beri Pucker schnapps

You know I have never heard of "Pucker" used to describe a drink before this thread. I am guessing its supposed to make you pucker up because its sour? If so I can see why they would call that a motherpucker.

They used to have these lollies when I was at school called warheads that were coated with some sour stuff. We would take them out of the wrappers and put them in a bag and offer them to other kids then watch their faces as they were hit by the sour (they also had hot chili too). Good times Smile

Some of these sound really yummy! Personally, I don't take alcohol very often, but I do love a good, sweet, fruity cocktail once in a while. As long as it has no tequila in it! lol

But what I discovered recently is that a particular Belgian sort of beer is really my cup of tea, especially in hot summertime. It's called Kriek, and it's sweet, with cherry flavor - another recommendation to try out if you have a Belgian Beer Cafe around the corner. Smile

Pucker is sour. Gives you that pain right behind the ears. We had war heads in the states. I loved them! Kind of a bitter sour taste if I remember correctly.

Have you tried an Irish cocktail barbadosslim93? Its a pint of guinness with a slice of potato wedged on the glass.

Just kidding all my Irish friends!

nothing beats a lemon, lime and vodka with plenty of crushed limes in the glass.

I have had my share of Irish Carbombs in the past, but never anything with a potato! Wink

Has anyone ever gotten or given a prank drink? I had a friend of mine give me an Angry Smurf. It was equal parts Jack Daniels, Jim Beam and Johnny Walker mixed with Blue Curacao. GROSS!

To get him back I served him a drink that was equal parts Jagermeister, Gin, Cactus Juice and Crown Royal. I haven't received a revenge drink from him since.

On a trip to Italy I purchased a bottle of Unicum. You drink it straight and It aids in digestion supposedly. I tried it and it was absolutely awful. It tastes like herbs/licorice/anise/God knows what else. I brought one home and it was given to almost everyone I knew. I guaranteed them that it was tasty. Their faces were priceless lol Good times!

Unicum??? That is the name of a drink? I am scared of typing that into a search engine!

I class Jagermeister as a prank drink all by itself. That stuff is disgusting.

Just came across this thread, I know one good cocktail, I do not actually know the name but it's made quite easily:

you need: 1 bottle of champagne or a bottle of sparkling wine,
1 bottle of Vodka (0.5L) and 2 bottles of cheery juice: you mix these all together in a huge pot and that's all- tastes delicious.... If somebody knows the name, please share Smile

I do not know the name, that's why I'm asking maybe anyone knows it? or has tasted? I like it a lot, it's quite easy to prepare and is delicious! I forgot to identify that the sparkling wine should definitely be the white one!

I don't drink very often at all anymore, but I really enjoy wine. Especially sparkling wines and champagne. I used to love attending wine tastings, and I even traveled to California wine country for the wine tasting experience and visited vineyards, etc. So much fun. I used to enjoy a glass of wine with my meals. Now, due to health issues, I have had to really cut down on my alcohol consumptions. From the following post, you will see that, in some ways, I really miss it! lol!

I like to drink Sex on the Beach in the summer (of course, lol) and I LOVE the Applebee's restaurant "perfect margaritas." They serve it in the metal shaker and pour a little into a martini glass. Oh, and speaking of martinis, I tried a caramel apple martini the other day that was YUMMY! In the winter, I enjoy Bailey's Irish Cream, Tequila Rose (tastes like strawberry cream) and Colorado Bulldogs. Now, before you think I am a complete lush, I honestly only drink about two to five times per YEAR, so I am reminiscing here, lol.

Here are a few recipes:

Sex on the Beach (there are MANY variations on this theme, including "sex on the beach with a blanket" where a bit of cream is added):

1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
2 oz cranberry juice
2 oz orange juice
Add vodka and peach schnapps to a highball glass over ice. Fill with equal measures of cranberry juice and orange juice, and stir.

If you look online, there are over 20 (if not more) different recipes and variations for this original recipe.
Popular substitutes include using pineapple for the orange, or Midori & Chambord instead of schnapps. Can add 1 oz of cream on top of you can add it and shake it all up together.

Perfect Margarita:

1 1/2 ounce Cuervo or 1800 gold tequila
3/4 ounce Cointreau
3/4 ounce Grand Marnier
1/2 ounce lime juice
2 ounces sour mix

Mix all ingredients and pour into a chilled glass.

Colorado Bulldog: I was vacationing in Mexico and we introduced this drink to a man from Canada. He kept sipping and saying, "just like mother's milk," lol, which is really kind of creepy now that I think about it, right? Yikes. Another person, from Canada told me they call Colorado Bulldogs, "Paralyzers" in Canada. haha!

Here ya go:
Colorado Bulldog
1 shot vodka
1 shot Kahlua® coffee liqueur
milk
1 splash Coca-Cola®
In a shaker mix Vodka, Kahlua, and milk. Pour into a rocks glass and add a splash of Coca-Cola. We also added Bailey's Irish Cream to ours, replacing the milk with Irish Cream, lol, so maybe ours were called something else.

My problem is that many of the drinks I like go down like kool aid they taste so darn good (like Sex on the Beach, lol).

There was a popular drink at the old (and gone) Nan King in downtown Minneapolis that was called "Wanderer's Punch." OMGosh, they would serve it in a glass a big as a fish bowl, and you NEVER wanted to drink more than one, thus the name of the drink. It really did taste so light and fruity, you would never know there was alcohol in it. I still have to look up that recipe in case I ever decide to entertain, or just to keep it before the recipe disappears. I found it online, a few years back, only in one place, so I best do that before it's too late, lol! GOOD STUFF!

Enjoy!

Hope Wink

That is such a great post hope! Sounds like you like a sweet drink.

On sweet drinks, let me tell you this stuff is like liquid candy... Rekorderlig cider.

They have pear, apple, and strawberry varieties. I like the pear stuff. It is way too easy to drink but its so nice after a few beers.

That looks delicious, Ed. I am going to check my international beer store to see if they have the ability to get that in stock.

With the fall coming here, I recently made pumpkin beer for the holidays. I boiled some light grains together with pumpkin mash, cascade hops, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and a few other ingredients to form a medium orange ale. I just sampled my first bottle to make sure it came out alright.... It was delicious! I will take a pic and post it up here when I crack my next bottle.

LOL, You are a mischievous friend, Savannah! haha! That reminds me of the Greek drink "Ouzo" is it? It tastes like anice. My brother tried to make a holiday drink with it one year, for a party, and it did not go over extremely well. lol

Here it is:

Thank you, CL-Ed! Smile

Hmmm...liquid candy! Funny, I do enjoy sweet drinks, but I like my wine very dry. I like a dessert champagne, sometimes, but for the most part, I do not drink sweet wines.

At the vineyards, they had peaches soaked in a sweet sparkling wine or champagne. Let it sit for sometime, and then serve as a dessert. That was so good. We had so much fun on that vacation. We went to the Sonoma side (versus the Napa valley) and to the cutest little town called Healdsburg in CA. You walked downtown and every other door was a wine tasting place. Could be quite dangerous.

Before I left, I had a friend who cautioned me to spit the wine out, because her SIL had gotten so drunk during wine tasting, and I said, "Do you know who you are talking to?" I would never spit wine out unless it was really bad tasting. lol

The above drink DOES look and sound good, though. Strawberry sounds really good to me. Smile

I thought of one more thing that I tried just last year. It is whipped cream with alcohol in it, and you CAN taste the alcohol. I can see putting a spot on the top of a Bailey's Irish Cream on the rocks, or thinking of many different recipes. They have many flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, cherry (I think). I think white chocolate would be so good! I have only tried the chocolate.

Here is what the chocolate looks like:

http://www.shopmerwins.com/853965002028.html

Here is a page that names the flavors: chocolate, vanilla, orange (yum! think dreamsicle!), cherry, raspberry, caramel (I LOVE caramel and caramel coffee drinks, I am making up a good recipe right now, lol). I am sure the ideas are endless. Wink

Now THAT sounds like a "paralyzer," lol! Only a splash of something that is not alcohol? Could be very dangerous. I believe if I drank one of those, it truly would be my "last night out..." ever! Wink

Okay, everyone! I found the infamous "Wanderer's Punch" recipe that I refer to, above, and I just have to share. Makes me lonesome for the old days, when my brother and I would go out to the Nankin, in Minneapolis, that is no longer there. They also had the best Chinese food ever! I read, online, that there is a restaurant now using some of their recipes, including the punch, although they renamed the drink. I will have to see if THAT place is still there and pay them a visit sometime. I just don't go to the city very often anymore. Back in the day, I lived right downtown, so it was easier. Anyway, blah, blah, blah, here is what you are looking for, lol! (Copied and pasted directly from the forum referenced below).

"Wanderer recipe (Nankin, MSP as i recall it)

Hi this is for bobalooza: it's been 10 years, so i **hope** this is right-- additionally, it is for a 4-5 gallon "batch" (we'd go thru 8-10 batches on weekend nights) so you might have to adjust, unless you're really having a party!! Hope it tastes the same:

In large 5 gallon soda keg (available locally from northern brewer in st. paul, or thru a restaurant supply) mix:

1 gallon (real!) orange juice
1 liter sweet and sour mix
2/3 bottle rose's grenadine (tall plastic bottle, think it's a liter)-- this is the amount i can't remember for sure--
1/2 liter triple sec

(here's where you get drunk):
1 liter light rum
1 liter dark rum
1 liter golden rum -----------------nankin used rail pour for these, i'd go to bacardi for light and golden, and meyer's for the dark rum-- using better booze than this is kind of wasteful for this drink imo.

and, here's where everyone gets REALLY drunk:

then put in a liter of 151 proof rum.

swish around, drag to the keg room, and hook up to your Wanderer gun and have a party!
(serve in big fishbowl glass with plenty of ice and a maraschino cherry and an orange slice (paper parasol optional)

***soupkitten liability statement: this is an extremely intoxicating beverage. do not drink on an empty stomach, don't let its pretty pink color fool you. most people are sloshed before they finish their 2nd one. it is called the wanderer because when you try to get up from your barstool you commonly find yourself unable to walk a straight line. if you underestimate this drink, i am absolutely not responsible for your actions, whether you remember them or not LOL! Have fun with the punch!"
