Alexander’s Sister Cocktail

What you end up with – especially if you’re using the heavier shit-bag creme de menthes available in your local liquor store – is something that is primarily dominated by mint and… and well that’s about it.

Godiva Vodkas Part Two: Thin Mintini

Mmmmmmmmmm thin mints. Those delicious, devilish Girl Scout concoctions. It only makes since to booze-a-fi it. 2 oz Godiva Chocolate Vodka .5 oz white creme de menthe 1 dash vanilla extract Combine the ingredients in a chilled cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and then strain into a frozen martini glass.

Purely Delicious

December 13, 2011 (Day 259) — Purely Delicious Creme de menthe, you cagey wench. You’re the menthol cigarette of the booze world. I’m not really sure what that means, other than to say that the use of creme de menthe can either make or completely destroy a cocktail. It’s all in how it’s used and […]

Dirty Kermit

October 28, 2011 (Day 213) — Dirty Kermit One of the greatest pastimes of the internet is destroying childhood memories. In many ways, actually. Usually, through something sexual. There’s even for a rule for it. Rule 34. Don’t Google it if you have any sort of self-respect or love of your childhood memories. However, that […]

Garbo Cocktail

January 27, 2011 (Day 362) — Garbo Cocktail Greta Garbo was a hottie. A classical hottie. She was originally a silent film star, but was one of the few who made the switch over to talkies. And the cocktail that’s named after her seems bizarre and I always enjoy challenges. Garbo Cocktail 1 oz brandy 1 […]

Vodka Stinger 2 oz vodka 1.5 oz white creme de menthe Combine your ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve. If you’re […]

Holiday Hopper

December 22, 2010 (Day 326) — Holiday Hopper It wasn’t too long ago that I actually finally busted my Mudslide cherry and made the drink that makes sorority girls famous (for all the wrong reasons). So, let’s play around with that forumla and create something unique for the holidays. Holiday Hopper 1 oz Midori melon […]

Those eyes… like a doll’s eyes…

April 1, 2010 (Day 61) — The Cricket First, I apologize for taking a break from my Easter/spring themed cocktails. But, I just couldn’t resist finding some sort of “prank” cocktail for April Fool’s Day. If you’re going to be entertaining people with your drinks, might as well make them wretch when the time calls […]


March 1, 2010 (Day 30) — Emerald I’ve got cooking duty tonight, so it’s short! Literally! Simple, too. 2 oz green creme de menthe Top with champagne It’s pretty and it’s taste is… odd. It’s not horrifying, but it’s not drop-dead awesome, either. Might be good for St. Patty’s Day! Have a great night everyone!

Midnight Snowstorm

February 06, 2010 (Day 7) — Midnight Snowstorm Sometimes, complexity is the enemy of the cocktail. If you have too many flavors lumped into one glass, you could face a confused boozehound. For example: Should I be focusing on the fruitiness of the gin? Or the overpowering taste of the syrup? Why is that muddled raspberry drowning […]
