  • Official Drink of 2010 contest!!

    Alright Gang, since we're now in the new decade and the 2009 contest has concluded, I figured i'd get us off to a good start in January! Last year we decided to get the ball rolling in the summertime and I just felt that it would be more fitting if we had (just under) a full year for people to get entries in, because as we all know, there are PLENTY of excellent wintertime beverages (hot buttered rum...mmmmmmmmm) as well as refreshing summertime cocktails.

    To get things started off, here was my entry in the 2009 contest (which was also the winner!)

    (WARNING: THIS WILL GET YOU TANKED)
    Recipe is PER PITCHER.
    1/2 Bottle Champagne
    2 oz courvoisier
    3 oz cointreau OR grand marnier
    1/2 can sprite
    3 oz simple syrup
    5-7 FRESH mint leaves crushed in ice
    sliced oranges, limes, cherries
    Ice to fill.

    Combine in pitcher, stir, consume.
    Feel free to contribute what you want to the thread. If you want to just give the name of your favorite beer or discuss the aroma of your favorite single malt scotch, please do! Lets see if we can get some quality tasty entries in this year for all of us boozehounds and home-based bartenders!

    Prepare your glasses, oh mixologists of TG!

    Hot chocolate with a dash of Crème de menthe or peppermint schnapps. More Crème de menthe is needed than schnapps as it doesn't taste so strong, but it depends on how minty you want it.
    Edit: Make sure you make proper hot chocolate (chocolate flakes with hot milk) rather than nasty, watery instant hot chocolate. Also, whipped cream and peppermint/chocolate sticks can be added for extra indulgence.

              Got introduced to this one over the weekend.. Neighbor married into a family from New Orleans. Her cajun mother-in-law quickly taught her that a woman must be able to drink bourbon and taught her this drink. It's like a white russian, but much better!

              Makes ~4 drinks. (I use a 20oz boston shaker, so adjust proportions appropriately up or down based on your shaker)


              - Fill a shaker with ice, then add:
              - 2oz Bourbon
              - 1tbsp sugar
              - 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
              - fill with whole milk to cover ice

              shake and serve.

              taste.

              make this face.

                OK, I haven't gotten my hands on any Castrie's Cream peanut liqueur, but when I do, I plan on mixing it with some chocolate vodka, or maybe some good vodka and some Godiva, and serving it in a margarita or martini glass that has been rimmed with some cocoa powder or maybe some powdered chocolate milk mix (Quick?).

                I'm looking to make a cocktail that tastes like, or is obviously inspired by, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup! When I heard about Castries a while back, I thought it might be possible. I've tried several other recipes (most involve Frangelico, which just isn't close enough in flavor to Reese's), and found them all lacking. Castries just might be what I've been looking for all these years...

                        that sounds amazing, I've always been a sucker for white russians. I'll be sure to try this.
