Booze.

I've been introduced to the catastrophically ill-advised Irish Car Bomb this weekend, which I'd never heard of (Half glass of Guinness, with a shot of whiskey and Baileys depth-charged into it) so I want to broaden my horizons.

Favourite stupid drink mix?

Re: Booze.

What a wonderful thread!

Desperate Housewife - Stupid on so many levels, but it tastes pretty good with the chocolate liqueur, the caramel vodka (seriously!), and the chocolate drizzle.

I actually know a lot of stupid mix drinks, but they all seem to be geared toward the middle aged woman.

i have got to stop making my mother's drinks for her.

Re: Booze.

Caramel vodka?!?!

Sounds like a nifty novelty drink, but God, that would be a terrible idea if you were in for the whole night.

Also, old lady drinks, bring em on. Recipe style too, no matter how obvious or well known. Let's pool the know-how, people!

Re: Booze.

Stupidist drink I ever enjoyed to excess (I get nauseated thinking about it):
A Field Artillery Special
-Everclear
-Jagermeister
-Jack Daniels
-Gatorade

Personal rule #266: never get near any cocktail that involves a liquid that is 95% pure alcohol.

Re: Booze.

In honour of my birthday a couple of years back, a friend of mine who happens to be a bartender gave me two shots. They were both awesome and became favourites of mine.

"B-52"
1. 1/3 Kahlua
2. 1/3 Irish Cream
3. 1/3 Amaretto (or Bailey's or flaming absynthe)

"Kalashnikov"
... I have no idea. Packs a punch, though.

Re: Booze.

That sounds great. The punch, I mean.

Well-known, for the middle-aged, and obvious all in one:

Margarita:
shot of triple sec
three shots of tequila
four ounces of lime juice/sour mix (or mix to tast, i guess.)

Screwdriver:
I like it half/half, but...
1/3 vodka
2/3 orange juice

it's great when you add frozen strawberries and blend.

You have a specific name for that? We just call it vodka and orange here.

Re: Booze.

You're supposed to use orange concentrate for Screwdrivers though, right?

Re: Booze.

It's still just vodka and orange juice, though. Doesn't merit its own name.

I hereby disown the name "screwdriver" in the name of all future generations.

Re: Booze.

But that burns up the alcohol. So you end up with a really expensive hot chocolate. Way to go.

Re: Booze.

Incidentally, the last few days has taught me a healthy respect for absinthe. I've had absinthe before, but at some point over the weekend, I decided to do the whole "show off absinthe drinking" thing, and just started chugging it straight. I'd forgotten how quickly the stuff completely disconnects your brain from your motor functions. It all went a bit wrong, but it turned out okay in the end.
