Victory! #Homemade rhubarb liqueur finished!
Testing it as a rabarber & soda #cocktail. Very light and refreshing.
It was really easy to make:
1. Put chopped rhubarb and a few lime peels in a jar with 500 ml vodka for 12 weeks.
2. Strain the infused vodka.
3. Make 500 ml rhubarb simple syrup.
4. Mix together & bottle.
People say you can use cheap booze for liqueur "it doesn't matter because you're flavouring it" but if you wouldn't drink it straight, don't use it.
This needs a mixing rum with a powerful taste. The #Appleton 12 may be a tad too gentle.
Don't worry, non-alcoholics! I made a#cocktailhour #awoo surprise for you too!
THE VIRGIN AWOO
6 cl pineapple juice
2 cl ginger beer (a strong brand, like Fever Tree)
10 cl Trocadero* (or ginger ale)
Combine pineapple juice, ginger beer, and soda in a glass over ice. Garnish with a slice of fresh pineapple.
Feel healthier and morally superior to the people drinking slutty awoos!
*Trocadero - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trocadero_(drink)
1 cl ginger infused vodka
4 cl pineapple juice
1-2 cl simple syrup
1 dash Angustura bitters
10 cl nationally appropriate sparkling wine
1 slice fresh pineapple
Combine the vodka, pineapple juice, syrup, and bitters in a shaker and shake with ice. Pour your sparkling wine into a champagne glass. Strain vodka mixture into the glass. (Slowly! Think science fair volcano.)
4 cl spiced rum
10 cl ginger beer
1 cl lime juice
lime slice to garnish
Add a few ice cubes to your glass; squeeze a lime wedge over the ice. Pour the ginger beer over the ice.
I prefer a strongly spiced ginger beer like Fentimans or Fever Tree.
Gently pour the rum into the glass. This is where you get the color gradation.
Garnish with a lime slice. Feel smug you've made such an attractive drink. (Stir before drinking.)
6 cl bourbon
2 cl sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 cl absinthe
lemon peel to garnish
combine bourbon, vermouth, and Angostura in an ice-filled mixing glass; stir.
rinse a chilled cocktail glass with the absinthe. (you can pour out the extra if you prefer; I don't.)
strain the drink into the cocktail glass.
garnish with lemon peel.
My #cocktail game is weak. Help me out!
I like Old Fashioneds / Manhattans, but am interested in branching out.
What do you guys like to drink? Send me "recipes" :-)
I have some vodka, gin and rye whiskey on hand. I also have some simple syrup and some bitters, and some lemons and limes.
