You Complete Bar Steward! – 09.05.05
With my 22nd Birthday in 3 days, I’ve decided to introduce you to a wonderful cocktail that I absolutely love, and will be guzzling down jugs of it on Thursday. This fortnights’ slammer is also very good for a long drinking session to add some variation.
Slammer of the Fortnight – Strawberry Bliss Bomb
Difficulty Rating: 5/5
1/3 Malibu Rum
1/3 Strawberry Liquor
1/3 CrÃƒÂ¨me de Cacao
1 x 50ml Shot Glass
Carefully pour each of the ingredients into the shot glass over the back of a spoon, so as to layer each of the ingredients. If successful, your glass will have 3 layers of ingredients without any of them mixing into each other.
A Pig goes into a bar…
… and orders ten drinks. He finishes them up and the bartender says, “Don’t you need to know where the bathroom is?” The pig says, “No, I go wee wee all the way home.”
Cocktail of the Fortnight – WooWoo
Ahh… the WooWoo. Discovered during my time spent at University up in Newcastle upon Tyne, this awesome Cocktail was given to me by a mate one night out down town. As soon as I took the first slurp, I fell in love with it. Simple yet effective.
Difficulty Rating: 1/5
Taste/s: Fruity, Thirst Quenching
50ml Peach Schnapps
Garnish with Ice
2 x 50ml Measures’
(For a jug full, just put as much Vodka and Schnapps in as you like, then fill the rest of the jug with Cranberry Juice).
Served In: Ã‚Â¾ Glass / Jug
1. Take your glass, and fill it half way up with Cranberry Juice
2. Pour in both the Peach Schnapps & Vodka
3. Fill the rest of the glass with Cranberry Juice then give the glass a stir to mix in the different liquids
There’s another variation of the WooWoo recipe, which contains the ingredients above, but adds 50ml of Coconut Rum into the fray.
I’ve never tried that variation, but it sounds just as nice!
A man walks into a bar…
… with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says, “A beer please, and one for the road.”
With my Birthday coming up pretty damn soon, I’ve set myself a challenge of drinking as many different types of drinks as I can (without getting totally blotto’d .. just merry). I’ll let you know how this went, along with any crazy stories from my Birthday in the next instalment of YCBS!
Also, next week at work we’re introducing a new “Traditional Cocktails” list, so over the next few weeks I’ll be writing about traditional and old-style Cocktails.
If you have any questions, queries, comments or general feedback, just drop me an email. Also, if you’ve tried a cocktail or drink that you liked (say, for example, when you were out on the razz one night) but can’t remember exactly what’s in it, give me a shout and I’ll try to find out what it’s called and what the correct ingredients are.
And that’s the end of that for a fortnight. Until next time…
