[NSFW possibly] What's your creative cocktail?

Asked by ETpro (34594points) February 22nd, 2012

I got fascinated by bartender’s ability to remember all the plethora of drink names there are. One of my rather obscure favorites (to consume) is the Greyhound, which is vodka and grapefruit juice (preferably fresh squeezed). You walk into a decent cocktail lounge and generally the bartender knows exactly what a greyhound is, and has the fresh (or fresh bottled) grapefruit juice to make you one—or more. But why not have some fun with your fun? I order a Greyhound in Heat. That’s vodka and red grapefruit juice, of course. So have fun inventing and morphing existing concoctions. What’s your fantasy cocktail, and what will you call it.

Vodka and gin with ginger ale with some fresh lime juice.

I actually invented a drink I like to call the Mariner’s Revenge. Mix 2 ounces of Kraken black rum with 2 ounces of Captain Morgan 100 proof. Stir well, down it like the pirate that you are, and then chase it all with a Seadog wheat ale.

Mines boring Boodles Gin and Tonic. That’s some kickass Gin.

Earl Grey and Rum aroma.

A Hot Penguin – Kahlua, coffee ice cream and hot rum.

Chocolate mocha martini
* 2 parts chocolate liqueur, plus extra to wet the rim
* 1 part vodka
* 1 part half-and-half
* 1/8 – ¼ tsp of instant, freeze-dried coffee.
* Cocoa powder, for the rim
It removes your inhibitions and keeps you awake long enough to enjoy their absence.

As a side benefit, both you and the drink taste so good.

I invented one humble cocktail: the Sally Brown.

two parts dark rum
one part chambord

Up the maritime spirit by using black strap rum.

It’s called the wundayatta time.

On the first day you make yourself some fancy cocktail. Say a Satanic Whimsy.

You sit there and stare at at it, but don’t drink it. One day at a time.

On Day two, you make yourself a Punchable Nun.

Same drill. Stare. Don’t drink. Chant to yourself. One day at a time.

On day three, you order a Sister of Mercy (kind of a sloe-gin fizz, except without the fizz).

It’s Ash Wednesday, so what the fuck. One day at a time.

On day four, it’s the Pope’s Nose. Vodka and Chicken Stock with a shot of tomato juice.

Do the staring thing. Refuse to imbibe.

This can go on and on forever.

But on the fifth day, you order a Long, slow, screw on the beach. This is the big kahuna. The double-shung. The triple sized steak. If you can get through this one, there’s a good chance you can kick the can. Shoe the beast. Wet your wand. Grease the pipe. Milk the lizard. Paint the pickle. Drive the Venus highway.

Those are all drinks, of course, although I leave it to your imagination to say how they are made.

I, myself, have other fish to fry. See you on the flip side!

My favorite shot is available pretty much everywhere:

Just you know, a good ol’ flaming Dr. Pepper. :D

I like champagne with raspberry juice and lime. But…my favorite cocktail is not a cocktail, it’s an herbal brownie. Coloma painted her walls bronze last year in a moment of happy brownie induced creativity They look great!. lol

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard ill def have to give that a try, Kraken is amazing

boffin's avatar

Scotch
Which morphs in hundreds of ways…
Single Malts, Pure Malts, Blends and De luxe.
Transform even further to the distinct regions where distilled.
Go way out and you are in the Liqueurs.
Decision time, “neat”, over ice or Whisky Stones?

The Manhattan, The Old Fashioned, and The Sazerac are three incredible drinks. Wikipedia has the official recipes for all three.

TexasDude's avatar

@uberbatman I enjoy it as well, but I must warn you: the Mariner’s Revenge is a horrifying concoction that is not for the faint of heart.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard ah I should be fine, I’ve been livin in Belize and we drink amazing Caribbean rum everyday here, I actually think I drink more rum than water lol

fundevogel's avatar

Well the engineer said before he died

Conductor said “what could they be”
A hot cup of coffee and a cold glass’a tea.

rojo's avatar

At this time of night, my cocktail of choice is Bombay and whatever is left in the refrigerator or cabinet.

rojo's avatar

Hmmmm…...... Think I’ll try @Blackberry ‘s concoction but, lo’, I am out of lime juice and will just have to substitute lime concentrate.

rojo's avatar

And Tequila…........ seems I’m out of Vodka too.

judochop's avatar

I have drink recipes on a ton of websites and have even had one on the food network
I like to keep things fairly simple and classic with simple twists. One of my favorites this year was a new Hot Toddy I have been doing a ton of and a couple of infusions that have been fun to play around with. The Hot Toddy has white pepper, black pepper, runny honey, home made pomegranate bitters, fresh ginger, apple juice and scotch in it with a float of cinnamon orange juice.
Some of the infusions that have been fun are, Popcorn Vodka, Beet Vodka, Watermelon Tequila and Vanilla Bean Rum.

@Blackberry So what do you call that> A Fast Gin Fiz?

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Mariner’s Revenge. That sounds like a real nautical wrecking ball.

@Adirondackwannabe There ought to be oodles of good names for a Boodles Gin & Tonic.

@ragingloli Is aroma the name of it, or part of the recipe? :-)

@janbb Let’s get together some time with a Hot Penguin and a Greyhound in Heat.

@LuckyGuy Oooohhh! Two of my deadly sins in one cup. Alcohol and chocolate.

@fundevoge Argh. The Sally Brown drink sounds even darker than the sea ditty in the link. Black Strap Rum indeed!

@wundayatta Wow. None of your own inventions there, but that’s a remarkably clever answer.

@rebbel Just how do you consume that?

@WillWorkForChocolate I can imagina that would look like Alien Blood. Good job. Sounds like it would taste OK as well. I’ll have to have a taste of a Buttery Nipple some time. It’d be fin to order, like @wundayatta‘s list.

@King_Pariah A Flaming Dr. Pepper? Is that a person named Dr. Pepper who’s a flaming queen, or a drink with Dr. Pepper and vodka set ablaze?

@Coloma I can’t argue with either of those recipes.,

@boffin I have always been a fan of The Glenlivet Single Malt. I know that’s pretty pedestrain for a single malt, but my opinion is it’s reputation as the leading one is wel deserved.

@mrrich724 Yes. Not your inventions, though, are they?

@rojo OK, Bombay Gion & canned tuna it is. What are we going to call it?

@judochop Hey, way to go. I’d say you have made it into the minor leagues of drink creation with that. If it gets to the point where a bartender in Indianapolis knows how to make one without looking it up, you’re in the majors.

rebbel's avatar

@ETpro You don’t order it, you are offered it.
The bartender, who is sick of a person(‘s behaviour), offers the ScrewUdriver.
It is near impossible to consume without spilling either the juice or the vodka.

mrrich724's avatar

@ETpro no not my inventions. I didn’t take that it had to be my invention the first time I read the question.

I took “your” as the one I like to drink :)

ETpro's avatar

@rebbel Just wrap those lips tightly around the vodka end and SUCK. No spillage unless you can’t handle a straight shot of vodka with juice for a chaser.

@mrrich724 No problemo. The list in a formidable one.

mrrich724's avatar

@ETpro and everyone else: now I want a drink!

TexasDude's avatar

just had half a bottle of wine. Does that count?

mrrich724's avatar

Yes, but a full bottle will count more, ;)

ragingloli's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard
Do you mean half the bottle or half of the content of the bottle?

TexasDude's avatar

@ragingloli, the vessel is just as good as the substance.

@mrrich724, I would have the rest if it wasn’t in my ladyfriend’s tummy already.

mrrich724's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Well in that case… I think it can count equally.
