    You're probably right.

    But you see, I come from the school of thought that there are two basic types of cocktails. The first are the logical combinations that people come up with while sober. For example, while drinking a type of soda or juice, one thinks, hmmm, some rum or whiskey would add kick to this. Boom. A cocktail is born.

    And then there are the illogical combinations that one thinks about when they are wasted (if you've ever been wasted you know that you start thinking about adding alcohol to everything). So that's probably when a drunk, possibly a Russian, found himself wasted, and was like, hmmm, I wonder if milk would bring dairy goodness to this vodka. Boom. The White Russian is born.

    Basically, regardless of how drunk you are, if you mix something with alcohol, and it doesn't make you barf your guts or go blind, well, name it something, like the Flaming Orphy, and Boom. A cocktail is born.

    My cocktail of choice is Makers press. If I stick with only that drink for the night I don't end up with a hangover.
    The wifey and I have had a lot more people over this year and when this happens, its game on. We like going to restaurants and de-constructing the drink so we can make it at home and cut out the middle-man.

    Our favorite is the Screaming Monkey martini from La Grande Orange in Pasadena
    Grey Goose Orange
    fresh squeezed OJ and cran juice
    little squeeze of lemon with a few slices of fresh jalapeño
    martini glass with sugar rim

    My wife and my sister just LOVE this thing. I had to get a bigger martini shaker just so I didn't have to keep getting up to make the damn things

    The next martini I need to de-construct is the Misty Rose from the Chandelier Bar in Vegas
    Hendricks Gin
    St' Germain
    Rose water syrup

    The thing I'm worried about is the rose syrup. I couldn't get the bartender to say if they use rose water, or if they make the syrup out of actual roses. I think I need to do a little more recon on this one before I attempt to make it.

    I guess I'm going to Vegas

    I have rose syrup at home. I've used it in a few things before, the trick is to use a little bit, though. Too much will completely overpower anything as it can be very sweet.

    my favorite drink...
    Red Stag by Jim Beam (black cherry infused bourbon) & coke.

    jameson on the rocks, with a squeeze of orange
    screwdrivers w/ a splash of 7up or vodka+pineapple juice & splash of 7up
    toasted almonds (amarretto, kahlua & cream)
    my version of a margarita. (with stuff i have at home)
    beer glass (no ice)
    2oz 1800 silver
    1/2oz triple sec
    half lime squeeze or some lime juice
    splash sweet & sour
    fill just rest (just over half a glass) with OJ
    shake & pour into another beer glass w/ice, the OJ really mellows out the sour for me because usually alot of pure sweet & sour margaritas give me heartburn after awhile or are just too sweet

    love santa fe iced tea as well (splash of strawberry margarita mix instead of coke)
    just finished off a bottle of the kraken black spiced rum which is pretty damn good with coke

    irish sunsets are excellent (jameson + peach snchapps + pineapple juice in a cocktail glass then a little bit of grenadine to sit at the bottom)
    royal flush's (crown, peach, chambord & cranberry)

    and just an FYI for whoever said Blue Kamikaze, blue curacao = triple sec w/ blue food coloring so they wont dbl up the triple sec... that would be rougher than it usually is
    and drinks w/ "white" i.e. "white russian" are made with creamer/half & half, not milk. milk makes it thinner, and it just doesnt taste near as good

    bulleit, neat

    i've been on a bourbon kick lately.

    i can't do anything rum based since i went a little too big, a little too quick with some Adios MarthaFockers. :o/ (i was such a neophyte)

    Default What are your favorite cocktails?

    bulleit is an excellent bourbon. I use it to make my mint juleps or just for sipping.
