Well last Wednesday I posted up the new episode of the show which featured a Fruity drink that simple, sweet, and not too hard. Be sure to check out the Episode 3 over on the show page.
1 oz Peach Schnapps
1/2 oz Raspberry Liqueur
1/2 oz Midori
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Shake all ingredients together and strain into a rocks glass
Add alcohol ingredients into an ice filled rocks glass. Top with cranberry juice to 2/3 full. Stir.
“It’s not Tutti Fruity… or is it?”
Today’s Drink is not only on schedule, but is a potent blast of berry flavor. The Red Devil is one of those dangerous mixes, like the “Long Island Iced Tea,” which is sure to get you plastered if you’re not drinking lightly. This variation is a half recipe of the Red Devil. that I’m calling the “Red Demon.” The plus to the Red Demon is that it will fit in a pint glass. The Red Devil will not, you’ll have to find something bigger.
3/4 oz Peach Schnapps
3/4 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Sloe Gin
3/4 oz Southern Comfort
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Orange Juice
Dash of Grenadine
Shake all with ice, serve into an half iced pint glass. (For Red Devil find something big enough or serve in two pints)
I figured the Majora’s Mask glass fit the theme of “Demon” quite well.
*Update: This drink makes the potency of a Long Island Iced Tea look mild. Watch how fast you’re downing this one.
Well now that November is upon us I decided to make the original shot…
“The Liquid Autumn”
2 Parts Peach Schnapps
1 Part Spiced Rum
The shot in layered form has a the initial taste of spiced rum with a sweet aftertaste or the peach. If you’re looking for an even sweeter finish add a dash of grenadine, then layer on the Peach Schnapps and Spiced Rum (in that order, as higher proof ingredients are “lighter” in density).
Spiced Start with a smooth finish.
In addition to this week’s drink, I’ll be starting “Medium of Mixology: The Show.” Hopefully to be the first Wednesday of each month to bring the blog to life (…with a vlog). Check out the “Show” page this Wednesday (and each first of the month) for the new episode(s).
Well I did promise you a drink of the week which this week is an original, but still in progress creation that I’m calling the “Harvest Pumpkin.” The tastes aren’t quite perfect yet, but it is still very close and certainly drinkable. Try it out for yourself if you can find a nice pumpkin liqueur.
Just in time for the harvest season!
