1:10PM - let's get a tally
how many of you can actually read when you're drunk/been drinking? could you get a master's degree in literature if you drank as much as bukowski?

i'm all about the seasonal drinks: pina coladas, mint juleps, and rum-and-coke-slurpies in the summer, warm sake, wassail, and rum-and-hot-chocolate in the winter, anything drunk from a hollowed-out pumpkin (or skull) around halloween, etc.
but i've not yet found a good spring drink.

4:10PM - 3 months no entries??
Ok so after a long hiatus and i'm sure you all missed me soooooo much...ya right (who is she again?)...i have returned!
Just wanted to let y'all know that while away my drink of choice has been Gin. The recipe i have picked up on was originally made with Plymouth Gin and thus called a Plymouth Breeze but hell any ole gin will do...
shot of gin
1/2 cranberry juice
Serve either tall or short. Very light and refreshing
Gin - Like a thousand flowers on your taste buds all fighting to see who can make you puke first LOL

3:36PM - no recipe, just a quote
"Work is the curse of the drinking classes." -Oscar Wilde
i found that quote rather tasty with some cheap Chardonnay.
5:03PM - finals = hittin the bottle
before i get too drunk to remember this:
3 shots tonic
+ 2 shots gin
+ 1 shot sweet n sour mix
+ 1 shot sour apple pucker
i think i'm going to call it the zelda fitzgerald, if for no other reason than the fact that my dance teacher once told me i look like her.
10:42AM - And finally....
1/2 cup strong brewed chilled coffee, 2 tbsp half n half cream, 2 tbsp coffee liqueur, 1 tbsp white rum. Combine with ice in a high ball and stir.
1 oz London Gin, 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1/2 oz dry vermouth, 1 oz of fresh OJ. Shake with ice and pour into a cocktail glass, garnish with an orange slice. Rumor has it the OJ was added during prohibition to mask the alcohol.
Niagara Cocktail (Just cus of the area i live in...Niagara wine region)
Fill a wine goblet with ice. Add 1 1/2 oz vodka, the juice of 1/4 lemon, and 4 oz of white grape juice. Top with 1 oz of soda water. Garnish with a couple frozen grapes.
To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 1 oz vodka, 1/2 ox Kahlua, 1/2 oz white creme de cacao and 2 oz milk. Shake sharply and strain into a martini glass rimmed with shaved chocolate.

8:28PM - Wet Wednesdays...
I was wandering thru the area and found signs of life in this community and my interest was peaked by the question and replies to WWJD? I belong to a couple other communities and have started to post what I call Wet Wednesdays so ppl can do their lists early for weekend drink supplies. I thought I'd give it a go in here too but if y'all don't like it, pls tell me I'll stop np. I have done 2 installments of 2 recipes each they follow and I think that perhaps the first is aptly named for a drink that might tempt and may be another answer to WWJD?
The Fallen Apple
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add 1 oz apple vodka and 1/2 oz Southern Comfort. Top with apple juice. Garnish with a green apple slice and a cinnamon stick.
Pour 3 oz sake into a mug and heat almost to a boil in the microwave. Add 1/2 oz Absolut Mandarin to a snifter and top with the hot sake. Garnish with an orange twist.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 3/4 oz gin, 1/2 oz blue curacao, 1/4 oz Sour Puss Sour Raspberry liqueur and 3 oz cranberry juice. Stir until well chilled and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
In an appropriate mug add 1 oz brandy, 1/2 oz Grand Marnier and top with hot apple cider. Dip a red apple slice in honey and coat with brown sugar to garnish.
Hope you all enjoy!
PS - I'm turning yet another yr older in 9 days and would love a few drink suggestions (I'll be 33).

alright. now that it's past noon...
i challenge thee, o fledgling members of this community and curious passers-by: wwjd?
by which i mean, of course: what would jesus drink? post good drink recipes from the good book, or make them up. bonus points for historical accuracy or creative absurdity. either way, let's find a drink for the main character of the most popular book ever written (and no, i'm not talking about rhett butler... his would obviously be bourbon), because plain ole communion wine just can't be hitting the spot anymore.
the impetus for this community's glorious founding:
"the white angel," found in truman capote's breakfast at tiffany's.
-two shots gin
-two shots vodka
-tonic, to taste
stir together all of the above in a cocktail glass. consume. smoke cigarette through ridiculously long holder. wear sunglasses indoors. rinse, repeat. begin to imagine yourself as audrey hepburn. stumble into bed sometime before noon.
