Wahey I've become a Sticky, that was quick, and I do say I'm feeling a bit smug about it.

I was beginning to get the feeling that I had an unnerving talent for killing threads with my wittering :crying:

Earlier in my ingredients post I mentioned the flamed orange zest, and how to do it, as an extra aid here are two videos that provide a clearer demonstration:

Over the next few days I am going to post a list of 150 Cocktails that evryone should know. They will be done in batches of 10, and hopefully with illustrations of the end product.

For those who would like to know more about the massive variety of Cocktails out there I do recommend the excellent Difford's Guide to Cocktails, this has become the UK Industry Standard resource, and well worth the price:

3. The Cosmopolitan

All you girlies out there will know this cocktail well. Here is the simplest recipe:

37.ml Vodka
12.ml Triple Sec (Cointrea is my Favourite Brand)
2-3 Dashes of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters (available here: http://www.thedrinkshop.com/products/nlpdetail.php?prodid=1825)
3 lime wedges
30mls Cranberry juice

Add all liquid ingredients to Boston Glass
Squeeze in lime wedges & add to Boston
Add Ice and shake thoroughly
Double Strain, using hawthorn & fine strainer, into a chilled Martini Glass
Garnish with Flame Zested Orange



As an alternative, use Tequila instead of Vodka for a Rude Cosmo.

4. The Daiquiri
JFK’s favourite drink. I don’t believe in frozen daiquiris, I’m an out and out classicist. So here’s my recipie for the Classic Daiquiri.

50mls Rum (Havana Especial)
1 lime
3 barspoons of sugar

Cube the lime and muddle thoroughly with sugar in the bottom of the Boston glass
Add the rum
Add ice and shake

Double Strain, using both your hawthorn & fine strainers into a Martini Glass, and garnish with a twist of lime.



5. The Mojito
Everyone knows the Mojito, but nobody gets it right, this is my recipe and it’s the best I’ve come across yet.

50mls Rum (Havana Especial)
10-12 mint leaves
1 lime
3 barspoons of sugar
Crushed Ice
Soda

Cube the lime and put in a Collins glass
Add the Mint & Sugar
Muddle thoroughly
Add the rum and a little crushed ice and stir/churn through thoroughly
Top with more crushed ice and add the tiniest dash of Soda (20mls or less)
Garnish with a sprig of mint.

Even better is my Spiced Ginger Mojito, for this replace the Havana Rum for Morgan’s Spiced, and Muddle 3-4 thumbnail sized pieces of fresh root ginger (finely chopped) in the bottom of the glass prior to muddling the lime mint and sugar. This recipe has a little more bite to it.



6. The Caipirinha

The Brazilian Classic that everyone loves, traditionally it is made with limon vert (Brazilian Green Lemons) but I can’t find these over here so use lime instead.
50mls Cachaca, use Sagatiba (pronounced Sa-ga-che-ba, available here: http://www.thedrinkshop.com/products/nlpdetail.php?prodid=2283)
1 whole lime
3 barspoons sugar
Crushed Ice

Cube the lime and muddle with the sugar in the bottom of a rocks glass. Be firm with this.
Add your Cachaca and a little crushed ice
Stir and churn
Top with more crushed ice in a cone shape, sit back and sip it through the ice.



7. French 75

This is a classic champagne and gin cocktail named after the very successful WW1 French 75mm Gun

30ml Plymouth Gin
2-3 Lemon Wedges
1 barpoon sugar
Champagne
Maraschino Cherry

Muddle the lemon & sugar in the bottom of your Boston
Add the Gin
Add ice & shake thoroughly
Double strain, using both your hawthorn and fine strainers, into a chilled Champagne Flute
Garnish with a Maraschino Cherry



Don't use one of these, whilst under the influence of the one above.


I find this works even better if you use 25mls Sloe Gin and 12.5mls Navy Strength

8. Mint Julep

50mls Bourbon, Makers Mark or Woodfords Reserve
6-10 Mint Leaves
1 – 2 barspoons sugar
Crushed Ice
Muddle the sugar and Mint Leaves in the bottom of a Rocks or small 8oz tall glass
Add the Bourbon
Add the crushed ice & stir/churn thoroughly
Top up with a little more crushed ice & garnish with a sprig of Mint.



This is a great drink for summer

9. The Whiskey Sour
50mls Bourbon, Makers Mark or Woodford Reserve for preference
1 lemon (a lemon contains approximately 1oz of juice, so if you do have freshly squeezed lemon juice that’s how much you need. DO NOT USE JIF LEMON)
3 barspoons sugar
1 egg white (Traditional, but optional, make sure its fresh)
1 dash of Angoustura Bitters

Cube the lemon and place in the Boston glass
Add the sugar and muddle the two thoroughly
Add the Bourbon, angoustura and egg white
Add Ice & Shake thoroughly
Strain into an Old Fashioned Glass over cubed ice and garnish with a twist of lemon and a cherry.



Served best with Miles Davis’ “Birth of Cool” playing in the background.

10. Death in the Afternoon
12.5ml La Fee Parissean Absinthe (available here: http://www.lafeeabsinthe.com/)
Champagne
Add the Absinthe to a chilled Champagne Flute, and then top with champagne
Simplicity itself.

Well then it seems I have been neglecting my duty over the last few months. I had promised you more recipies and here we are, another 10, somewhat late in the offing but there you go:

11. Bramble

50mls (2shots) Plymouth Gin
37.5mls (1 ½ shots) lemon juice
12.5ml ( ½ shot) Sugar Syrup
12.5ml ( ½ shot) Creme de Mure (Blackberry Liquer)

Add the first three ingredients to your shaker, with cubed ice, and shake vigourously.
Strain into an Old Fashioned Glass over crush ice
Drizzle Creme de Mure over the top
Garnish with blackberries

12. The Piña Colada

Personally I can’t stand this drink, but some people enjoy it, Hey ho, it takes all sorts I suppose (frickin’ bunch o’ freaks)

12.5mls Goslings Black seal Dark Rum
12.5mls Havana Especial (Matusalems for preference)
25mls Koko Kanu (Coconut rum)*
75mls Pineapple Juice
100mls Double Cream/Milk (Half Mix)

Blend all the ingredients with cubed Ice to make a slushy and decant into a Hurricane Glass
Garnish with a pinapple wedge, obligatory paper umbrella, and coconut shavings

* Koko Kanu is a full strength Coconut Rum, ie 40%abv, Malibu is a Coconut Rum Liquer and only 27%abv)
If you cannot get KK, you can use Malibu, or just use rum and add 50mls coconut milk, if you do use coconut milk, halve the amount of Cream/Milk half mix you add.
If you can’t get coconut shavings, use dandruff instead.

13. Zombie

One of my personal favourites and one to floor anybody.

37.5mls White Rum
37.5mls Pusser’s Navy Rum
37.5mls Havana Especial
12.5mls Apricot Brandy
12.5mls Grand Marnier
25mls Orange Juice
100mls Pineapple Juice
12.5mls Grenadine

Shake Like Crazy in your Boston, and pour over ice in a large Collins or Hurricane,

Float a ½ shot of Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum on the top.

Try not to stand up too quickly

14. The Mai Tai

A classic amongst Rum Cocktails

50mls Aged Rum (El Dorado 12yr is quite good I find)
12.5mls Cointreau
1 lime (cubed)
12.5mls Orgeat (Almond Syrup)
½ barspoon sugar

Muddle the cubed lime and sugar at the bottom of your Boston before adding the other ingredients and cubed ice
Shake like crazy and strain over crushed ice into an Old fashioned Glass
Garnish with a sprig of mint and a cherry

15. Lynchberg Lemonade

A good way of polishing of the remains of the Jack Daniel’s , before you start investing in proper Bourbon

37.5mls JD
12.5mls Cointreau
1 whole lemon
2-3 barspoons of sugar

Cubed the lemon and muddle with the sugar in your Boston, before adding the other ingredients and cubed ice
Shake and Strain into a Collins Glass over cubed Ice and top with Soda or Lemonade to taste (Soda is best I find, less sweet)

16. Americano

A little bit of a bitter-fizzy classic here, from our Italian friends, made popular by wandering Americans suffering from the debilitating effects of Prohibition.
50mls Campari
50mls Sweet Vermouth

Pour ingredients into a Collins Glass over ice
Top with Soda
Stir and garnish with Orange

Simplicity itself.

17. Negroni

The younger and more acerbic brother of the Americano, stems the Count of Negroni’s desire for an Americano with more balls.

25mls Gin
25mls Campari
25mls Sweet Vermouth

Add all ingredients to a Rocks/Old Fashioned Glass over cubed ice
Stir and garnish with a twist of Orange Peel

I like to add a couple of drops of orange bitters to this to give it a bit more zing


18. Russian Spring Punch

25ml Plymouth Gin
1 barspoon Creme de Cassis
2-3 Lemon Wedges
1 barpoon sugar
Champagne
Mixed berries

Muddle the lemon & sugar in the bottom of your Boston
Add the Gin and Cassis
Add ice & shake thoroughly
Double strain, using both your hawthorn and fine strainers, into a chilled Sling Glass over Crushed Ice
Top with Champagne
Garnish with a Mixed Berries

19. White Lady

Heaven on earth IMHO

50mls Plymouth
18mls ( ¾ shot) Cointreau
18mls fresh lemon juice
1 fresh egg white

Add all your ingredients to your boston, and shake well with cubed ice
Strain into a chilled Martini Glass
And Garnish with a twist of lemon

20. Old Fashioned

If ever there was a drink to piss off your bartender this is it. Never ask for this at a bust bar it drives them nuts. But tbh it’s a delicious classic and everyone deserves one

50mls Bourbon or Whisky
Angostura
Orange Bitters
1 brown sugar cube

Soak the sugar cube with 3 or 4 drops of Angostura and place at the bottom of an Old Fashioned Glass, gently crush and add two ice cubes
Add 25mls Bourbon/Whiskey and proceeed to stir gently

After approx 2-3mins add 2 drops orange bitters and two more ice cubes and repeat stirring

Add remaing 25mls Bourbon/ Whisky and two more ice cubes and stir some more
Stir till taste and add a couple of twist of orange peel


More to follow later.

For entertaiment purposes The Blue Blazer.

The Blue Blazer was created way back in the 19th century by the immortal Jerry Thomas while he was at the bar of the El Dorado in San Francisco . Thomas was a star performer with this drink. He perfected the technique of lighting the whisky and throwing the flaming liquid between two silver tankards. This act impressed President Grant of the United States so much he presented Thomas with a cigar. Thomas was a man of principle-he refused to serve this drink until the thermometer fell below 50°F/10°C. Be careful when trying to make this cocktail.
• 5cl whisky
• 5cl boiling water
• 1 barspoon caster sugar
Heat the whisky in a small saucepan and pour into one tankard. Put the boiling water into the other tankard. Light the whiskey and, while it is flaming, pour the two liquids from one tankard to the other four times. This may seem difficult at first and practice is required before you perform this in front of guests. Serve sweetened with sugar. Garnish with a twist of lemon.


Now watch how it's done.

I do warn you this is a dangerous drink to mix, so practise your pouring first, before you even contemplate setting fire to the mix.

Mrs Fang favourite is a Grasshopper

Equal parts creme de menthe, creme de cacao and double cream, shaken with ice, served in cocktail galss with garted choclate garnish.

Any suggestions on any improvements or variations?

Also was thinking could we invent an Arrse cocktail? maybe something layered in Arrse colours?

Mint's a bugger to work with at times, but I would probably suggest maybe something nutty, Frangelico perhaps, 1/2 shot. Sprinkle some crushed nuts on the top with the chocolate.

Other versions could inlcude:

Alexander's Sister

Same as the Grasshopper, but use Plymouth Gin instead of the Creme de Cacao

Barranquilla Green Jade

50mls Gin
25mls Creme de Menthe
25mls half mix (cream and milk)
1/4 a fresg egg white

Bullfrog

same as the Alexander's Sis. But Using Vodka

Midnight Over Tennessee

50mls JD
12.5mls Kahlua
12.5mls Creme de Cacao Brun
12.5mls Creme de Menthe
12.5mls Cream

Shake & Strain the first three ingredients into a martini glass
Shake the Cream and the Creme de Menthe together then layer on top

works well with brandy instead of JD too.

After 8 (shooter)

equal parts vodka, cacao and menthe, shaken and strained into a shot glass.

I've stuck to Menthe Chocolate combo for you, but if there are other flavours you like lemme know 'cos I've got a ton o' recipies. But that would take me all night.

Arrse Cocktail or Arrse Shooter, it's just a question of flavour vs gravity/density and whether or not pyrotechics should be involved (YES YES YES :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: )

I'll think over it.

Oh guru of the cocktails I seek your guidance on a subject matter which should be known as 'the cocktail whose name should not be spoken'

(for those of a nervous disposition do not continue)







The Non-Alcoholic Cocktail
8O

My family and I have been invited to attend Xmas dinner with friends in the village. The decision has been made by the men of the house that cocktail drinking into oblivion is the way ahead. Thanks to this thread I have been voted the expert and will be producing them . 6 adults, 1 teenager and 3 children ranging from 4 to 8 (girls so pink frothy stuff is not a non-starter :) )

To enable them to join in with the proceedings can you recomend some solutions which you may have in your knowledge bank? Really good would be ones I can mix up the day before, pour into the shaker with some ice and make life easy while the real business of getting the adults merry can take my full concentration.

I can’t believe you asked for non-alcoholic drinks, but now I have finished spluttering, I suppose I must. The thing to remember with kids is that if you dress it up properly and present it right anything can be a cocktail so focus on the right glass(plastic)ware and garnish. And try to avoid huge amounts of sugar.

1. Virgin Strawberry Mojito:

10-12 mint leaves
1 lime
3 barspoons of sugar
3-4 Strwberries
Crushed Ice
Canadian Ginger Ale

Cube the lime and put in a Collins glass
Add the Mint, Sugar & Strawberries
Muddle thoroughly
Add the ginger ale and a little crushed ice and stir/churn through thoroughly
Top with more crushed ice and Ginger Ale
Garnish with a sprig of mint & half a strawberry

2. Saudi Champagne

Good one for a large pitcher, used to drink this by the bucket load as a kid, in Saudi strangely enough:
Fresh Apple Juice mixed with sparkling water (1:2) add diced fruits

3. Fruitades

These are simplicity itself and simply involve citrus fruit and sugar
Simple rule of thumb is for each fruit use 3 barspoons or sugar
• Lemon
• Lime
• Orange & Passion fruit

Muddle your chosen fruit in the bottom of your shaker or glass with the sugar
Shake (if using shaker)
Add Ice & Top with soda/Lemonade

4. Virgin Pina Colada

3oz Pineapple Juice
1oz Coconut Cream
1oz Cream/Milk
1scoop ice cream and a little ice
Blend all ingredients together and serve
Garnish with pineapple

Try adding strawberries to the mix for something a little different


5. Virgin Berry Daiquiri

1 lime
3bspn Sugar
12 Mixed Berries (Strawberries/Raspberries etc)
2oz Apple Juice

Cube the lime and add all ingerdients to shaker, and muddle
Add the apple juice and ice
Shake like hell
Strain into glass

Can be served either short or long, short in a Martini Glass, long in a Collins Glass over ice either topped up with soda or lemonade

6. El Castro

A virgin Cuba Libre
1 lime
Coke
Cube lime and muddle in the bottom of an Old Fashioned/Rocks Glass
Add Ice and Top with Coke

7. Smoothies

These always end up being some of the easiest to make it just depends on what fruits you want to use:
Mango, Passionfruit & Peach
Mixed Berries
Kiwis & Apples
Use anything u like
Use Cranberry Juice and Apple Juice to lengthen and thin the smoothie and blend away to your hearts content.
Or use yoghurt and describe them as lassi

8. Soft Floats

Really easy these, simply a soft drink of the child’s choosing
Coke/Lemonade/Irn Bru etc etc
Use a tall glass and add a scoop of ice cream to the soft drink (not the otherway around otherwise it will fizz everywhere

9. Fruit Juice Cooler

• 1.5 oz. Cranberry juice
• 2 oz. Ginger ale
• 1.5 oz. Grapefruit juice
• 1.5 oz. Orange juice
• 1.5 oz. Pineapple juice
Add all ingredients to glass and stir

10. Limler

10cl apple juice
1lime cubed
2bspn Brown sugar
Crushed Ice

Muddle the lime and sugar in your glass
Add crushed ice and top with apple juice

My dad's "Merry Christmas Summertime Cocktail"...Sluggy can vouch for this one!

1 shot each of vodka,bacardi and malibu per serving
squeeze of fresh lime juice and top up with pineapple juice and lots of ice

To reduce alkyhole you can leave out the malibu and use one of them pineapple and coconut juices!!

To be drunk by the jugful on christmas eve, rendering all partakers incapable of coherent speech until long after Her Maj has done her bit on the big day!!

Mostly in and around Glasgow, so same thing really :wink:

Mount Gay is something I really only sell on request, don't use it much, though I have been known to use it as a swap out for other rums in drinks depending on the bar.

Cockspur is something that you don't generally find much these days I'm sad to say but you can get it:

http://www.cockspurrum.co.uk/#

Rum Punch
1oz Sour Lime Juice)
2oz Sweet( sugar syrup)
3 oz Strong(Cockspur Five Star coloured rum)
4 oz Weak (water, ice)
Garnish with Angostura bitters and grated nutmeg to taste. For added attraction include a few pieces of fruit

Havana Gold is now more commonly sold as Especial

My rum tipple at the moment is Pyrat XO

http://www.pyratrum.com/

Which is perfect served straight up over ice with a slice of orange :D

Oi some pass the Cubanos 8)

I'm not trying to out do Rampant, but the I've used the 'Drink Shop' news letter for some good recipes (should that be concoctions?) You can subscribe at no cost. Not only do they have offers and stock a huge range but they have recipes from a different 'mixologist' every month. Not necessarily the cheapest supplier but worth a look.

Might I request your preferred method for a White Russian? A number of my friends have seemingly become addicted to these. I favour Kahlua but others have suggested Tia Maria. The person who suggested Baileys is no longer with us, having been ostracised for such a comment.

Vodka, Kahlua and Half-Mix

Half-Mix being equal measures of Cream & Milk

Whether you layer it or shaker it is up to you.

My preferred method is to shake the equal measures of Vodka & Kahlua with ice in a Boston and then pour over ice in a tall glass

I then shake my Half-Mix before layering it over the the V/Kmix and then dust with chocolate powder, if I feel really indulgent I add some vanilla ice cream (rather than vanilla vodka which can overpower it with a sickly sweet taste).

Some prefer to shake all the ingredients together, which is fine, but if you have little experience of making drinks its possible to get your measurements wrong, and use too much half-mix which means you waste alcohol. :evil:

If you get some ice-lolly molds from lakeland you can make frozen versions for the summer 8)

Also, is it permissible to look down your nose at Black Russians?

Mmm, my favourite cocktail, which I was about to ask for.

On a rummy note, 7x drops of Tabasco and a good squeeze of lime added to a strong Dark'N'Stormy makes the jolly invigorating 'Mess Webley'- copyright Rumpel, at a very boring course at PWOG Barracks Grantham...
