IMG_6483

Voila, the first collection of drinks I have created this year.  Apologies if the names confuse you or weird you out–they were named by theatre kids!

 

The Bi

Somewhat sweet, somewhat smokey.

Yield: One Shot

1/2 oz. Whiskey

1/4 oz. Amaretto

1/4 oz. Seltzer

2 Maraschino Cherries

If you have a two-part shot glass, put the whiskey in one side, and the Amaretto and Seltzer in the other.  Garnish with two cherries on a toothpick.

 

 

The D

Named after my good friend Deidre, or “D”, who loves gin.

Yield: One Drink

1.5 oz. Gin

1 oz. Sour Mix (check out my homemade!)

Dry Cucumber Soda

Combine first two ingredients in a glass with ice.  Top with cucumber soda.

 

 

Sexy Mexi

Named by D, after my good friend Élán.

Yield: One Drink

1.5 oz. Silver Tequila

1 oz. Kahlua

Pinch of Cinnamon

1 oz. Bailey’s

Combine tequila and Kahlua in a glass with ice.  Sprinkle cinnamon over the top, stir to integrate it.  Add Bailey’s, do not stir.

 

 

Amie’s Lemonade

One day my friend Amie asked for a Vodka Lemonade.  I didn’t have lemonade.

Yield: One Drink

1.5 oz. Vodka

1 oz. Sour Mix

Seltzer

Combine vodka and sour mix in a glass with ice.  Top with seltzer, stir to combine.

 

 

The 10 out of 12 Days of Christmas

For all those theatre people stuck in 10/12’s during the holidays.

Yield: One Drink

1 oz. Kahlua

1.5 oz. Spiced Rum

Eggnog

Combine Kahlua and rum in a chilled glass (ice optional).  Top with eggnog, stir.
