Friday 5 o’Clock Cocktail – Miami Cocktail

You’re going to need a bottle of Light Rum, a small pile of lemons and some Creme de Menthe. That’s because this week’s Friday 5 o’Clock Cocktail is the Miami Cocktail. A delicious drink that goes well with Spring.

Here’s how to make a Miami Cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 oz Light Rum
  • 1/2 oz Creme de Menthe
  • 1 dash Lemon Juice

Directions: Making this drink is easy. Just put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake it, strain it, and serve it in a cocktail glass. Fresh Lemon Juice is always best, but we’re drunks so we use whatever we have available.

Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail – Tequila Sunrise

Tequila SunriseMaybe it’s because Spring is in the air. Maybe I’m just low on Vitamin C, but I have to admit I’ve been drinking these all week
The Orange Juice and Pommegranet flavor in the Grenadine goes well with the silky smoothness of the Tequila. A little squirt of lime juice really finishes the drink off nicely.

Here’s how I make mine:

  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 3 oz Orange Juice
  • Splash of Grenadine
  • 1 slice of lime

Directions:
Combine first three ingredients in a rocks or highball glass with ice. Squeeze the lime slice over the drink and then drop it in. Stir gently. Enjoy.

Friday 5 o’Clock Cocktail – Captain Cosmo

Last week we featured the Cosmopolitan. Now, get ready for the next one. I’m not usually one to splurge on hyperbole, so please understand that when I say this drink is f*cking awesome. I really mean it is THAT good.

This drink is a little better if you put on a mask and wear some sort of red tights or a unitard. At the very least, wear a cape and a pirate hat (eye patches can also help).

This week’s drink is the Captain Cosmo; which is sort of like a cosmopolitan with it’s hair messed up.

Enjoy!

Martini Recipes

We may not always agree on the various concoctions that have come out claiming to be Martinis. It seems sometimes that if you put the concoction in a cocktail glass, all of the sudden it qualifies as a Martini – even if it has shrimp in it!

Now, I’m not going to jump up on a soap box here. I’ve already expressed my “purist” opinions about Martinis on another post. But suffice to say that there are a few Martini recipes that it pays to know if you want to be considered a proper Drunk.

So in the interest of being fair, we have created the Martini Page. A page that contains the top 5 Martini Recipes.

Now, WAIT! Stop right there. Don’t send us email about these recipes! Everyone has their own version, and I recognize that you may be one of those cork dorks who thinks that the Vermouth portion should be measured in atomic units. But that’s not us.

You may now view the Martini Page

Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail – Shellshock

I know it doesn’t sound very Christmas(y), but today’s cocktail of the day is Shellshock. Basically this is like a scorching hot Bloody Mary that is made with beer instead of Vodka. Or, if you want to be a real drunk, you can modify it to include Beer AND Vodka. So it’s great at breakfast, before work, under a bridge, basically anywhere – anytime.

There is no celery in this – celery is for pussies who have extra money for vegetation. No, with this drink, all you need is half a beer (it can even be flat beer), some Clamato Juice, Lemon Juice, Tobasco Sauce, and some Cayenne Pepper.

Also, just like a Bloody Mary, this can help knock the wind out of a hangover. I know, I just tried it.

One alteration I would suggest. Some hot sauces are hotter than others. For me, putting an entire ounce of Tabasco Sauce in this thing is way too much. One quarter to one half an ounce is plenty. As they say, you can always add more.

How to make a Shellshock:

Ingredients:
6 oz Clamato Juice (you can substitute Tomato Juice or V8 if that’s what you have)
6 oz Beer (a light lager like a Pilsner would be best, but use what you have)
1 oz Hot Sauce (Probably 1/2 oz is better)
1 dash Lemon Juice
1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 pinch Salt

Directions:
Pour clamato juice over salt, pepper and lemon. Then add beer. Stir slowly with a spoon to mix the hotness with the beer, but don’t make the drink fizz too much. Serve in a Pilsner glass.
