I know there are various recipes to make a chocolate martini – I used Godiva Dark Chocolate liquer this evening with some Vanilla Vodka.
This is a gin based cocktail. With Aperol, Lillet Blanc and some Angostura Bitters.
This is Bourbon, Benedictine, Sweet Vermouth and Bitters
Was intrigued to find out the origin of the name for this drink. Apparently the 3Gs refer to the “G”in, St. “G”ermaine (elderflower liqueur) and “G”inger liqueur.
And frankly, that is all there is to it. Good evening cocktail (sweet/flowery) at the end of a hot day…
Not sure how it got its name but Mr. 404 has Vodka, Aperol, Elderflower liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup.
Fairly interesting cocktail. The flowery, sweet elderflower liqueur continues grapples with the bitter edge of the Aperol. Neither dominates the other. The nose is definitely sweet and flowery but the length has the distinct Aperol bitterness.
I have not yet, try as I might, cracked the mystery of the origin of the name of this cocktail. If any of you know or find it out, please do let me know. This is from Mr. Boston Official Bartender’s Guide.
Vanilla Vodka, Butterscotch Schnapps, Limoncello and lemon juice.
Love the color of the drink. I took a few pictures with my normal black background and then out in the yard. The color comes from the light blue color of Hypnotiq and the pale yellow color of pineapple juice. For the alcohol, you put in vodka. I am not the biggest fan of pineapple juice but the drink was good for a hot day after a long motorbike ride.
I am not sure of the origin of the name. One can safely guess the Kentucky connection of Bourbon whiskey has to do at least something with it. I remember flying into Lexington, KY for work in my previous life and the airport was called Blue Glass airport!
Bourbon, lemon juice, maraschino liqueur and pineapple juice it is!!!
Tried the Charoe aloe vera liqueur for the first time. This cocktail had the liqueur, vodka and a couple of drops of absinthe.
Next time, I am going to make this on a hot summer afternoon.
This is a fairly complex cocktail with three alcohols trying to duke it out – rum, vodka and apricot flavored brandy. There is also lime juice and grenadine.
Now, I made a big faux pas with this drink. I poured it in a martini glass. The proper glass for this drink is a champagne flute.
