Jolly Rancher infused vodka

Last week I was bored and decided to make a vodka infused with Jolly Rnachers.  I made several different ones for each of the flavors and have to say that this is something I would do again, as these mixes have very bad tastes.  The only one that was sort of good was watermelon.

So I picked up this little bottle of Soho the other day at the liquor store and thought it had a interesting taste to play around with it.  Soho for those who don't know is a lychee liqueur that is made in france, that has a strong lychee flavor with little alcoholic taste even though it is 21%.

Croutching Tiger Hidden Shot
Soho:  0.5oz
Blanco Tequila: 0.5oz 

Lychee and 7up
Soho:  1oz
7Up:  4oz

Tanqueray Dry Gin

Now I don't know about you guys but I do love a good tom collins or gin and tonic.  I have been trying out a fair bit of gins out and this is the one that I love the most. 
Its bright juniper and subtle flowery tastes make it my favorite even infront of the standard around here which is Bombay Saphire.  Next time you are deciding what to buy pick this up and try it in a tom collins.

Liquor Reviews

Been a long few days without updates, first I lost power to the house for a day and a half then the internet went on the fritz and took 2 days for them to fix it.  I have been thinking about this for the few past days, and I am thinking I want to shift this blog into more of a liqour review blog.   Would this interest you guys or no?

Banana Jack

Just bored tonight and made a Banana Jack and sliced up some real banana to eat with it.  For you who don't know Banana Jacks are half JD and Creme de Banane.  For my version put a few slices of banana at the bottom of your shaker and then put in the JD and CdB, but do not muddle.  Just shake it and strain it, this will imbibe the fresh flavors of banana but not make it to chunky or the likes.

Vodka Watermelon

In prepping for tomorrow I have been trying to figure out what I could do with watermelon for friday night, after browsing around google and found the vodka watermelon.  This may be a bro kindof thing to do but it is pretty good and can get you pretty trashed if you have a few.

1. Get a bottle of vodka and watermelon
2. Cut a hole in a watermelon just large enough to fit the neck of the bottle in it.
3. Put the neck in the hole so the vodka pours into the watermelon.
4. Wait for about a day, might be quicker or slower but that will be usual.
5. Slice up and eat, or ball it and freeze it as watermelon cubes.

Watermelon Margarita

I was at the store and they had watermelon on sale so this weekend will be all watermelon drinks.  I will start off with a watermelon margarita, which is so much more better than those premade margarita mixes.

1. Slice up a watermelon and put in 3-4 scoops of it your glass
2. Muddle it in with a little sugar or the triple sec about 1 oz (optional)
3. Add in ice
4. Add a reposado tequila 2-4 oz (whatever you want)
5. Drink and enjoy responsibly

Rocky Mountain Bear Fucker

As you may or may not know most of Canada the government has a monopoly on who can sell booze.  As part of that they do not sell alot of good liqours like Everclear or drive up prices of everything roughly double the US cost.  I am going to have a couple of mixes this time for this drink as I have never tried the 151 shot.  

Rocky Mountain Navy                                        German Bear Fucker                                  
1/3  Sailor Jerry Spiced rum (43%)                      1/3  Doornkaat Schnapps 
1/3  Jose Curevo Gold                                         1/3  Jose Cuervo Gold

Cement Mixer

I picked up Chambord and Lychee liqueur today when I was in Chinatown today picking up a whetstone and decided to look into a Liqueur store and see what unique things they had.  I saw them onsale to see what I could make of them.  I got home and tried combining and nothing was working.  I made a Cement Mixer to get the juices flowing and low and behold a decent shot.  Lychee drinks will come later...

1oz Bailys
1oz Chambord
1. Drink the shot of Bailys and keep it in your mouth
2. Drink the Chambord
3. Shake your head like a madman

 4. Swallow

P.S. Does that not look like the holy handgrenade?

The Deadly B-52

I was at a party lastnight and someone had Patron Coffie there, never having it before I saw that it had a much higher proof than Kaluah. I substituted Kaluah for it in a B-52 to make it much more stronger.  I assume that you could also find a orange liqueur with a higher proof also to make this even more effective.

1/3 Patron Coffie
1/3 Baileys
1/3 Grand Marnier

Ginger Mint

Its friday night and I have been thinking of a new shot to make.  I have been drinking some ginger juleps this week and decided to buy some ginger from the grocery store.  I have been making different shots tonight and found that if you put half a shot of creme de methe and then get a bit of ginger and make some ginger symple syrup.  Then mix them together untill you have your perfect mix.

Caramel Vodka

So a follow up of yesterdays mix I will talk about another vodka infusion that was good.  For this one you use the same qualitys but it only takes about 5 days for this one but it takes a very small filter for you to get all of the particles to make it a smooth drink.

A Little Molecular

About 4 months ago I had the brilliant idea to infuse the flavor of strawberry into a vodka.  I put a 40oz of vodka into a sealed container that was 3/4 full of fresh strawberrys.  I bottled it and stored it until today, after filtering and straining it I tried it.  It was the most tasty vodka I have ever had, well technically a kind of gin now, but I would recomend doing it.

This is a drink that I just got introduced too, I have heard of the shooter, but this is a better mixed drink.

1/2 oz of Blue Curacao
1/2 oz of Raspberry Sourpuss
4 oz of Sprite

Cheap and easy to make, try one tonight.  Do like shooters or mixed drinks better?

Thanksgiving failures

Well this weekend has been a bunch of Thanksgiving partys and dinners, being Canadian we have it early October, whereas our Americans to the south have it later in November.  I have been trying to create something with a festive taste but I have to say pumpkin, squash, turkey do not belong in any drinks.

So instead today I ask for some drinks you make around Thanksgiving that I may try and enjoy.
