Goslings and Barritts I hope

goslings and goslings acutally ;-)
Don't know what they're called (I guess a Collins or fizz?) but they're going down way too easy...

1/2 Oz gin
1/2 Oz Old Tom gin
1/2 Oz triple sec
1 Oz Aperol
Couple of dashes rhubarb bitters
Fill 1/2 way up with tonic, 1/2 with grapefruit perrier
Mango Caipirinha

2 oz cachaca
1/2 lime cut into quarters
1 teaspoon sugar (or to taste)
2 oz mango puree (or to taste)

Take first three ingredients and muddle in an old fashioned glass. Add mango puree and stir. Add ice.

Feel free to play with the mango and sugar amounts to suit your palate.

anyone have anything fun?


Here are a few fun cocktails:

Kingston Colada
1.5 oz coconut water
1.5 oz aged amber rum
1.5 oz pineapple juice
3 dashes Angostura bitters

Add all and stir in an iced filled Old Fashioned glass

.


Hey, that's pretty good. Not as sweet as a pina colada but has some of the flavors.

I tried these a couple of weeks back when hosting friends. They were well-received, and I enjoyed them too. I thought they needed a bit of acid to balance the sweetness of the brand of pineapple juice we used (Dole), so lime juice did just that.

Glad you enjoyed and have a new drink in your cocktail arsenal Smile

yea thanks for posting

was a good one

I used coconut cream too to get more of that pina coloda taste, but it's surprisingly light on its feet.
Mango Ginger Mojito

2 oz mango nectar
1.5 oz rum
Half a lime cut in quarters
0.5 oz ginger simple syrup (to taste)
Mint leaves
Club Soda

Add rum, limes, ginger simple syrup, and mint leaves in a Collins glass. Muddle then add mango nectar, ice, and top with club soda. Stir and serve.

If you don't have ginger simple syrup, simply replace with a teaspoon of sugar (to taste) and slice of ginger.

That reminds me, when I was a kid I remember a great uncle whose favorite saying was, "A little booze'll fix that right up."
Not a cocktails as much as a very enjoyable couple of fingers of Blantons. One small ice cube to cool it off.
Chili Mango Margarita

4 parts mango nectar
2 parts Olmeca Altos plata tequila
1 part Cointreau
1 part lime juice
A few jalapeno slices

Add jalapeno and lime juice. Muddle. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a margarita glass.

Fresh mango margaritas have become a favorite of mine when I visit Puerto Vallarta. Never thought about adding jalepeno, though. I'm sure I'd get a funny look from the bartenders if I asked.
A couple of cocktails I have tried recently that I found nice and refreshing in the hot summer days we have been having.

Captain's Table

2 oz gin
1/2 oz Campari (I would use a bit more)
1 tsp grenadine
1 oz OJ
2-4 oz ginger ale (I used ginger beer)

Sunburn

1-2 oz tequila
1 oz Grand Marnier
3 oz cranberry juice (I used cranberry/pomegranate)

You can have without the chilies and it will still taste awesome. But the jalepeno gives the margarita a great combination of spicy, sweet, and sour.

If you're making a large batch, I recommend instead to infuse the tequila with jalepenos for a few days. Then put it all together.

Hey nice! I've made a similar cocktail using spa water (pitcher of water with sliced up orange, lime, cucumber, and mint). I highly recommend using Hendricks gin for this drink.
Avation cocktail:

2 oz Plymouth Gin
0.75 lemon juice
0.5 Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
0.25 Rothman & Winter Creme de Violette

Shake and stain into a cocktail glass.

Great cocktail. Haven't made this in awhile since Creme de Violette is sometimes hard to come by.

- EDIT -

A friend recommended lowering lemon juice to .5 oz. I think it came out better.

This time no mangos so I made a regular Jalapeno Margarita:

2 parts Olmeca Altos plata tequila
1 part Cointreau
1 part lime juice
2-3 jalapeno slices

Add all ingredients to shaker. Muddle and shake with ice. Strain into a margarita glass. The jalapeno gives it a nice kick.
Had a glass of iced mango ginger mint green tea and added a shot of vodka...quite refreshing on a hot day.
Imperial Collins

2oz Old Tom Gin
1oz simple syrup
.5oz lemon juice
.5oz grapefruit juice
1/2 bottle Imperial IPA/DPA/Hoppy Modern IPA

Shake till really cold and put in a highball with a single large ice cube. Carefully poor beer on the cube to get a nice layered effect.

The sweet from the Old Tom and syrup tone down the bitter of the beer while the citrus plays off the hoppy citrus of the beer. Dangerous as it's a lot of booze per drink.

D and I were in the mood for Mexican martinis last night. We had our favorite bartender at Bistro 315 make us six different styles ( we split each one) for us to vote on.

A lot of fun and the bartender now knows our favorite for our next visit.

Made this over the weekend. I liked it a bit better after cutting back on the lime juice a bit. A great rum drink.
