Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail for November 30, 2007

It’s cold and snowing here in Colorado today, so we need to have warm drinks. Today’s Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail is The Colombian made with Cognac, Coffee Liqueur, and Almond Liqueur.

How to make The Columbian:

1/3 oz Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua if you have it)
1/3 oz Cognac
1/3 oz Almond Liqueur (Amaretto is always nice)

Pour it in a glass and swallow it. Repeat as necessary.

The Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail – State of Emergency

I’ve been thinking about coming up with a weekly cocktail in addition to the one that appears on the site as the “Drink of the Week”. This one will be chosen depending on the things that are happening at the time. If there’s a hurricane blowing in from the Gulf that day, you can bet there will be a “Hurricane” on the Friday 5 o’clock drink of the day. Fortunately, we won’t be having Hurricanes today. In fact, looking at the weather, it appears we won’t get much inspiration at all from that direction.

Checking the news headlines today, Pakistan is under a State of Emergency, as is Georgia (the country), the southeastern U.S. is under a Level IV drought alert; whatever that means. And, finally, the dollar has fallen to new lows against the Euro. Sounds like it’s time to drink a “State of Emergency!”

How to Make a State of Emergency:

2 oz of Vodka
1 can Red Bull Energy Drink
¼ oz Grenadine
1 Lemon Spiral

Mix Vodka, Red Bull Energy Drink, and Grenadine in a glass with Ice, and garnish with Lemon Slice. The Red and Yellow colors indicate a STATE OF EMERGENCY!
