All of it Jameson of course, as Irish Whiskey is far superior to any other whiskey!

I've been mainly switching between Bulleit Rye and Bulleit Straight Bourbon, neat. When I feel the need for something sweet, it's been Sailor Jerry and Coke.

I invented a holiday drink that the ladies like, and it delivers a powerful buzz. Simple to make, too.

The Borzoi:
Large shot of quality vodak
Shot of Amaretto
Splash of cinnamon schnapps
Chocolate milk to taste
Serve with a couple ice cubes in an old-fashioned glass.

Cheers!

I like a good cocktail as long as I don't have to make it. If I'm doing it myself it has to be simple: open and pour----I don't have the patience to keep mixing ten ingredients every time I need a refill.

1. Christmas tree lights blinking in the night
2. Fireplace crackling
3. Vince Guaraldi's "Christmastime Is Here (Instrumental)"
4. Lagavulin, neat.

Perfect.

NobleHam: Mostly you just have the sort of booze you mix with soda.

Well, I did make ghetto variations of the Singapore Sling with club soda ... used to have the proper ingredients.

My parents have a lot of fruits growing in their yards -- oranges, lemons
Lemon peals make great infusions. Takes a few weeks, but wellll worth it

// probably obvious.

Making it from scratch is always better, but when I'm running out of time, I suck it up & make Ambassador's Punch:

1 qt store-bought eggnog
6 oz. brandy
3 oz. creme de cacao
3 oz. dark rum

Whisk together, add big block of ice, grate nutmeg over the top, provide sleeping quarters for most of your guests.

Funny enough, Irish Whiskey is the only whiskey that does not make me punchy. Hence why I stick with the Irish type. I do not need to go to jail.

Miss Stein: hogans: I was expecting six variations of Glögg. Instead we got six sickly sweet recipes for crap.

THIS. It's not the winter holidays without glögg.

Time to fire up the first batch of the season....


Wait, what? Are you people Swedish or something? Also, don't forget the OP Anderson Aquavit!!

WTF?!?

That writer must be a super light-weight.

She's also notorious for just taking other peoples pictures, writing something stupid, and never listing the recipe.


Right??? I thought that was the POINT of these articles.

/though I guess I should be thankful: I'm gonna try the Scrooge listed on a linked site for sure!

I make my glögg with burgundy, port, spices, and vodak. I used Absolut for years, but now that I've gone grain-free (gluten intolerance), I'm looking for a good potato vodak. Any suggestions?

I also have a nice selection of aquavit, made from grain, that will need to find a new home. Sigh.....
 
2012-12-03 03:48:17 PM
If you have any OP Anderson, I will pay you for it and for shipping it to me! They don't export that stuff to the US anymore, unfortunately. And I didn't mean aquavit in the glogg, that would be weird... I just meant as well as glogg!

As for potato vodkas: Karlsson's Gold!

Wait... gluten makes it through the distilling process? Also, I think Chopin is a good starting point in most people's opinion.

Spiced mulled wine, or if you're feeling up to it, spice mulled brandy.

Amaretto & Eggnog is also an acceptable choice.

Honestly, it's not that hard.

these are all terrible. They could've added at least one drink that someone over 18 would drink. who wants that much sugar?

Go out and buy some decent malt whisky.
Pour it into a glass, by itself.
Warm the glass in your hands.
Sip slowly, while inhaling the vapour.
(keep the other stuff for guests or inlaws).

GhettoWinter: these are all terrible. They could've added at least one drink that someone over 18 would drink. who wants that much sugar?


It's hard to go wrong with spiked hot chocolate. I melt a bunch of shaved dark chocolate in with whole milk, add a handful of marshmallows and add a shot of vanilla. Heat the mix slowly so as to not burn the milk or chocolate. Serve in pint mugs, add a double shot of peppermint vodak. Drink while your lady cuddles up next to you naked under a blanket as you fail to finish watching the movie.

Aside from methanol-spiked bootleg vodka and that ilk, I was under the impression that there were no wrong answers when it came to booze. I prefer adult beverages that are made of fruit rather than grain. Therefore, cider and wine are very right indeed!

Blue Moon.

Get a pint glass.
Add random measure of spirits/liqueurs as dictated by you whim.
Drink.

So called because if you do this in a pub, it's a drink you can afford once in a blue moon.

with the armagnac try a Bittered Sling

- 2 oz Armagnac
- ¼ oz or less of Simple Syrup (I put 50/50 water/sugar in a small water bottle and shake it up until completely dissolved. there are other methods, but this is quick and easy. also, it will keep in the fridge for a while)
- 2 dashes bitters (angostura works, peychaud's could be interesting, feel free to experiment)
- Garnish with nutmeg on top

/ although, it might be better to drink the armagnac on it's own if it's good. either way, the armagnac, bitters and nutmeg will give this a great christmas taste

OK, Worst article EVER.
1) If you have an article about drinks, have the recipes there, not links to the sites that have links to the recipes. Arrgh!
2) If you have an article about drinks, the recipes should be for DRINKS, not cups of solids.
3) If you are going to have an article about Alcoholic Drinks, it would be best if they contained alcohol.
4) and worst of all: PUTTING DRINK IN A MARTINI GLASS DOES NOT MAKE IT A MARTINI

A martini contains Vodka or Gin, at least a trace of vermouth or a credible substitute (Chartreuse, Campari, Herbs muddled in Liqueur, something like that), and a twist or pickle of some sort (typically an olive). That's it. Not Gin or Vodka? Not a Martini? No Vermouth? You've got yourself a Churchill. Cranberry Juice? You've got a Cape Codder, Up. If you have a drink that is Sweet but not savory, you do not have a martini, you have something else. Nothing wrong with something else, BUT IT'S NOT A MARTINI! You want to put a cocktail onion in it, well, yes, that's a martini, but it's a particular type of martini, called a Gibson.

There's a lot of scope to play with here, but, like the blues, martinis are not about limitless choices.

Might I suggest as a Christmas Martini: BlueCoat Gin mixed 10:1 with Green Chartreuse with a Cornichon or Citrus Vodka Mixed 12:1 with Campari with a nice, pimento stuffed Spanish olive.

And remember, folks, Don't bruise your gin. Stir. Don't shake.. Shaking brings out the bitter. (You like the bitter, go ahead and shake, That's why James Bond likes 'em that way.) Keep shaking for Cream or Fruit Juice based drinks. WHICH ARE NEVER MARTINIS.

I guess I better grab some nawg to make Nawgged Out Kitty Sarks with.

Kitty Sark

Cutty Sark Scotch Whisky, one to two shots, depending on mood
Sweetened condensed milk, NAWG!! two shots, preferably handmade Nawg
slightly chilled spring water, shaken hard to oxygenate, to top off a champagne glass

Mix carefully, drink slowly; do not drink too many or lightweight kitty will be floating in zero-G
with goddamn reindeer antlers and blindingly bright red LED-illuminated snoot on!!
and NOT feeling fine for the next two days.

/thinks about hurling on NORAD from orbit
