Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 in BOOZE!!, Social

Today’s offering is put forth by our friend Jack Capito.

Don’t judge me.

extra creamy orgasm cocktail

Extra Creamy Orgasm

  • ½ oz. Amaretto
  • ½ oz. Kahlua
  • ½ oz. Bailey’s
  • ½ oz. Creme de cacao
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate sprinkles

First, swirl chocolate syrup on the inside of a shot glass. Shake Amaretto, Kahlua, Bailey’s, and creme de cacao over ice. Pour inside the chocolate garnished shot glass. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles. This may not be for everyone, but it damn sure is for me.

So much chocolate, so little a glass ;)

Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 in BOOZE!!, Social

This week finds me expecting out-of-town family, and getting ready for a family reunion, plus a possible trip to Hubby’s class reunion. I have never attended one of his reunions, being indisposed with children or having to work on the evening of the event.

I am not disposed to attend one now, either. But perhaps it’s a small sacrifice to make. If I’m lucky, I may get some fancy cupcakes out of the deal.

Anyway, I am rather busy getting the house ready but that doesn’t mean I can’t post a recipe, especially one conducive to entertaining like this one.

june bug cocktail

June Bug

  • 3 cups ginger ale
  • 4 tbsp. grenadine
  • 4 tbsp. orange juice
  • 3 scoops orange sherbet
  • 1 cup white rum

Pour all ingredients into a blender and set on high. Pour over ice-filled highball glasses. Then proceed to drink it while enjoying the summer breeze. Just make sure no real june bugs fall in :)

This past weekend I attended the sort-of-annual get together for members of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler blog. This year’s Rott Fest™ was a bit smaller than usual, but just as much fun and as an added bonus, we got to enjoy several alcoholic solutions that we had not tried before.

I also got the chance to fire an Uzi. And it felt gooooooooooooood.

Anyway, one of the solutions I brought to sample was Absolut™ Vodka’s newest addition to their limited edition flavors: Absolute TEXAS!!

absolut texas

Tejano

  • 2 oz. Absolut Texas
  • 3 oz. Grapefruit soda

Pour ingredients over ice in a glass and garnish with lime wedges. You can salt the rim if you so desire.  I’m not one for flavored vodkas, but this one is refreshing, with just a kick. Needless to say, one will do me. Ok, half of one :)

Not really a girlie drink, but it packs a wallop.

manhattan french

French Manhattan

  • 2 oz. Red Dubonnet
  • 1 oz. Vermouth, dry
  • Cherry, for garnish

Add first two ingredients to a shaker with ice, and swirl the contents gently. Strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a cherry on the bottom.

Dubonnet is a wine made for use in mixed drinks. Similar in style to Lillet, it comes in sweet (red) and semi-dry (blonde) varieties. If that is too frou-frou for you, stick with the classic and use bourbon ;)

When it comes to strawberries, I am lucky. No, I can’t grow them worth a damn, but I live relatively close to Poteet, Texas.

By “relative”, I mean within 250 miles. Doable day trip around here.

Anyway, Poteet is famous for their strawberries. The local creamery makes a Poteet Strawberry Ice Cream for a very, VERY limited time. One of my favorite wines is sold during their Strawberry Festival, and once it’s gone, people go into mourning. But the best part about Poteet is going to harvest your own berries out in the fields. It’s a great activity for anyone, no matter if you go on your own or with friends and/or family.

strawberry sensation cocktail

Strawberry Sensation

  • 6 oz. Moscato wine
  • Strawberries
  • Club soda
  • Mint leaves for garnish
  • Sugar (optional)

If you want a very sweet drink, coat the strawberries with a bit of sugar first and let it stand for a few minutes. Next, muddle the wine and the strawberries in a glass until very mushy. Add ice, and top off with club soda. Garnish with some crushed mint leaves if so desired.

You can make a pitcher by increasing to one bottle of moscato, one pint of strawberries, and about 8 oz. of club soda. Take it to your porch and proceed to enjoy your day :)

I had a bit of an off day yesterday, and today found me running all over town taking kids to school and to dental appointments, so of course I am running late with this week’s version of a dead blog post.

pinktini

Pinktini

  • 1 oz. Chambord
  • 1 oz. Honey vodka
  • raspberries
  • 1 oz. Lime juice

Pour all liquid ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, and shake well. Strain into a martini or cocktail glass and garnish with raspberries. To get a stronger raspberry taste, muddle a few raspberries before adding the liqueurs to the shaker, and serve as directed.

Enjoy :)

Sorry there was no post yesterday. There was a snafu with the server and I had stuff to do and couldn’t wait around for it to be fixed. But fixed, the blog is. So, on with the blogging.

This week’s recipe is a variation on the Mudslide. I admit, that is one drink I constantly mess up. Why? Because I tend to increase the chocolatiness by a factor of 27. Ergo, I always end up drinking a chocolate shake instead. But I hope this recipe will make me appreciate the liqueur much better.

nutella mudslide

Nutella Mudslide

  • 1 Tbsp. Nutella (room temperature)
  • 2 oz. Heavy whipping cream
  • 2 oz. Bailey’s
  • 2 oz. Frangelico

Stir the Nutella into the whipping cream until well blended. Add the mixture to a shaker filled with ice along with the liqueurs, shaking well. Pour everything into a glass, and enjoy. If you need more chocolate, you may need an intervention ;)

So this week is preparing to be a challenging week for yours truly. I am in the middle of refinancing the house, can’t find paperwork, helping my niece get ready for her wedding this Saturday, have sundry appointments with doctors and orthodontists and dentists, and getting crap done for the end of the school year.

Not a happy Aggie, I am.

But y’all need a post to scroll right by on Tuesdays, and I can’t disappoint.

berry stomp cocktail

Berry Stomp

  • A small handful each of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries (about five of each)
  • 1½ oz. Vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz. Grand Marnier
  • Club soda
  • Additional berries for garnishing (optional)

Place the berries in a shaker and muddle well. Add crushed ice, the vanilla vodka and the Grand Marnier and shake well. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, and top with the club soda. Garnish with the berries if desired.

It’s too bad my purse is white, because I would sneak a flask of this stuff to the wedding. I have a feeling after eight hours I will be needing it ;)

I discovered a can of pineapple juice in my pantry the other day, and decided to see if there were any cocktail recipes that used it, and were palatable. I say this because my sister loves making pineapple mojitos and they taste awful to me. Mint and pineapple just don’t mix for me. Anyway, since this is the 100th GDOTW, I thought I would do something sweet.

Yeah, I know. When don’t I post a sweet drink??

pineapple margarita

Pineapple Margarita

  • 1 oz. Silver tequila
  • 1 oz. Triple sec
  • 3 oz. Pineapple juice
  • 2 oz. Orange juice (preferably no pulp)
  • Dash of lime juice
  • Pineapple and lime slices for garnish

Pour tequila, triple sec, and juices into an ice-filled shaker. Shake well. Prepare a glass by running a lime wedge on the rim, and coating the rim with salt. Strain into ice-filled glass. Garnish with the pineapple and lime wedges if so desired.

I might rim the glass with sugar instead. Because there is no such thing as too sweet for this gal :D

In less than a month, my sweet niece will be getting married. As is custom for young brides, she wants everything, and I do mean everything to match her wedding colors. I am so glad I am not an attendant, since I look awful in pear green. I was a bridesmaid 15 times in my life, and I can tell you I foisted those bridesmaid dresses on Goodwill™ the following business day. Far be it from me to deprive someone else of a pretty dress, you know.

Getting back to the wedding, my niece also wants to serve a signature drink that matches her wedding colors. She tasked me with this because she knows I do mixology on my Pinterest account. No, she doesn’t know about mixology HERE. Shut it. Anyway, I think I found a drink to serve in her colors of anjou and teal.

electric margarita

Electric Margarita

  • 1½ oz. Silver tequila
  • 1½ oz. Fresh lime juice
  • ½ oz. Blue curaçao
  • ¾ Agave nectar

Pour all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker. Shake well, and pour into a salt-rimmed glass, over ice. Garnish with a wedge of lime, of if you are as picky as my niece and want to stick to the actual colors of the wedding, garnish with a slice of anjou pear.

As for me, I will skip the garnish. No use spoiling the drink in that manner ;)
