Manic Monday - Drink

Today’s word over at It’s A Blog Eat Blog world is DRINK.

I am not much of a drinker. I was drunk 1 time in my life and too buzzed about 3.

That feeling of having no control never really appealed to me. I like to drink an occasional beer and some wine with a meal is OK too. Occasionally a Jack and Coke might appeal to me but mostly I am a water, coffee, tea, milk girl.

Oddly enough I used to bar tend at a Go Go Bar and mostly served beer and shots. I actually love the smell of a bar. The lemon, various alcohols, and stale beer smells good to me.

Some of my favorite drinks if I am going to drink alcohol are:

Buttery Nipple - Shooter
1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream

1 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps
Pour schnapps into glass then slowly pour Bailey's Irish Cream against side of glass.

Pour ingredients into a shot glass and serve.

For my 40th birthday I threw a Luau and served this which were awesome.

1 gallon pineapple juice
6 ounces lime juice
2 quarts vodka
2 quarts 7UP
1 quart brandy
1 quart tonic
Ice cubes to chill
Mix all ingredients in a large punch bowl.

One of my all time favorites:

Tequila Sunrise Ingredients
2 oz Tequila
4 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Grenadine
Orange juice and tequila and pour over ice in a highball glass. Add Grenedine by tipping the glass and pouring it down the side of the glass. The Grenedine should go to the bottom and then rise slowly through the drink.
