    Default Got a good cocktail recipe? Post it hear please

    As a relatively new amateur mixologist, I've been experimenting with a lot of rum-based tropicla cocktails for the last year or so. I've got the books and online recipes, but I'm looking for practical stuff that YOU have made, or tried.

    For example, I made this drink tonight, and my god it was well worth it:

    "The Best Year'"

    2-1/4 oz Grey Goose vodka
    3/4 blue curacao
    3/4 Licor 43
    3/4 Rose's Lime Juice (just about the only time that this crap tastes better than fresh squeezed)
    3 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
    1 cup crushed ice

    Blend at high speed for no more that 5 seconds, so the ice acts as a congealing agent and not as a slushy mess.

    It's simple and deceptively strong, with the neutral vodka flavored with hints of orange from the curacao, and predominantly vanilla from the Licor 43.

    I never understood the logic behind using premium liquors in mixed drinks. I guess my palate just isn't that sophisticated.

    Anyway, two things came to mind. Look up Alton Brown's bloody mary. It's not like your typical bloody mary at all. It's absolutely amazing.

    Second, is a party punch I learned about in high school. 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate, 1 cup vodka, and a 6 pack of cheap beer. It sounds weird, but it's really good for getting underage girls drunk...or so I recall. Don't get all judgmental, I was underage at the time too.

    one of our favorites is a Brazilian Monk. If you look at it online, they seem to add sherry, but i've never drank one that way.
    2 shot Frangelico
    3/4 shot creme de cacao
    3/4 shot kahlua
    2 shots milk or ice cream.

    I agree with Salami, the most I'll mix a premium alcohol is with one other ingredient. Other than a couple I don't really do the mixed drink thing. I'm boring I guess so depending on the occasion I like my Cuba Libre's, Pina Colada's and Dirty Martini's. My guilty pleasure drink is a fuzzy navel, lol.

    Otherwise I'm sipping on scotch. JW Black when out and Single-Malts or JW Blue when at home.

    the only mixed drinks i like are caipirinhas and jack and cokes. otherwise, i'll take a scotch, neat. oftentimes, i find a lot of mixed drinks to be just too sweet. i think i just don't like juices or syrups in my drinks. the caipirinhas are just lime, cachaša and a bit of sugar. a lot of the time, i'll actually make my jack and coke a double also so that the coke doesn't make it too sweet. depends on the size of the cup.

    Premium spirits are a must for good cocktails, when the point is to enjoy a distinct taste as opposed to getting hammered. It's not as important with neutral spirits like vodka or gin, though there are definite quality gaps from one brand to the next. Rum however, has a wide variety of distinct flavors depending on the country of origin, age, and manufacturing technique.

    My big interest is in tropical drinks, which have been given a bad, bad name by years of misuse by sloppy bar keeps.

    Always go with fresh lime and lemon juice, never EVER use industrial sweet and sour mixes, avoid anything by Rose's and artificially sweetened juices or syrups.

    For example, I tinkered around with a drink the other night that consisted of this:

    1 oz unfiltered apple juice (the cloudy non-sweetened kind)
    3/4 oz Navan Vanilla Liquer
    1/2 oz orgeat syrup
    1 oz Flor de Cana light rum (from Nicaruagua)
    1 oz Coruba dark rum (from Jamaica)
    1/4 oz club soda

    Coruba has more of a brown sugar taste, where as Myers is a little closer to molasses. Change the rum brands and the flavor profile changes as well. Not too much, but it is distinguishible.

    This drink had subtle apple, vanilla and almond tones, and the club soda cut that "burn" that most light (or clear) rums have.

    I have also been enjoying an old drink called the Ankle Breaker:

    1 oz fresh lemon juice
    1 oz Cherry Heering ( a Swedish heavy cherry liquer)
    1/2 oz simple sugar syrup
    1 oz El Dorado Demerara 151 rum

    Both of these are meant to be shaken with crushed ice and served unstrained into double old fashion glasses, with additional crushed ice to fill. Always try to use crushed ice instead of regular cubes - the drink fuses together better, and you don't get the overly sweet or syrupy notes that lunchie is talking about.
