    Could you share your favorite mixed drink recipe?

    I have always loved beer but here lately I'm looking for something new and I have never mixed a drink before.

    I have searched online but there are so many.

    Anyway, I thought it would be a cool thing to share with each other.

    I can pretty much only drink vodka. I love Jager mixed with Dr. Pepper, but it usually doesn't agree with me. Tastes yummy though. I usually mix vodka with about any diet soda out there, not very expensive and does the job LOL. Once in a while I will get more creative and do margaritas (using vodka instead of tequila, which again doesn't agree with me and I've been told makes me turn into a mean 8itch) or cocktails/martinis. Yum

    2/3 thirds 7up
    1/3 bourbon (old grandad or something better than Evan Williams green label)
    Splash of angostura bitters ( 3 or 4 splashes)

    Your welcome :)

    Vodka Gimlet (if you like lime)

    I always use Roses Sweetened Lime Juice and Vodka for it, regular lime juice is bitter, and gin is too..gin tasting. But a proper vodka and Roses lime served frosty is very lovely on a hot summer night.

    For winter it's Hot Buttered Rum. That stuff is addictive.

    Mojito

    Add to a shaker and shake very well:
    • 2 oz lime syrup
    • 2 oz white rum (ie Flor de Cana)
    • 10-12 mint leaves
    • ice
    Pour over:
    • 1 1/2 oz club soda (or Sprite)
    • ice
    • 1 sprig of mint
    Quantity: 1

    Lime Syrup
    • 1 part sugar
    • enough boiling water to dissolve sugar
    • 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
    • Zest from 2-3 limes.
    If you squeeze 1/2 cup of lime juice, then add 1/2 cup of sugar to a large measuring cup. Pour just enough boiling water to sugar to moisten it. Stir vigorously for a minute to try to get most of the sugar to dissolve, adding more water as needed. Add lime juice and lime zest and continue stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.

    NOTE: Lime syrup improves dramatically if left overnight in the fridge in a covered container.

    As a shortcut, you may also use Minute Maid frozen concentrated limeaide. Do not use bottled juice -- it is horrendous.

    Awesome guys, thank you.

    I am going to try every one of these (not in the same night of course :confused:).

    I purchased a Ninja Blender just for mixed drinks a year ago with every intention of using it long before now.
    I guess its time to bust her out. Here's to good times and good friends :)

    I love lime!

    The Ninja Blender makes amazing Margaritas.
    • 1 1/2 cups (12oz) lime syrup
    • 4 1/2 cups ice
    • 3 oz tequila (Sauza Gold, Sauza Tres Generaciones, Camerena, Cuervo 1800, Sauza Hornitos, Cabo Wabo, Don Julio)
    • 2 oz orange liqueur (O3, Mathilde Orange XO, Triple Sec)
    Blend approx 1 minute.

    Raff's Marguerita Pitcher

    Into a large glass pitcher add: (plastic pitchers pick up odors)

    1 12 oz can MinuteMaid Limeade (save the empty can for measuring)
    1 3/4 Empty limeade cans Tequila...I use anything white as long as its 100% Blue Agave
    2 16 oz Bottles Water
    2 sec pour Luxardo Triplum ( dry orange liquer...be careful with this stuff. Its pretty strong and can overpoer with orange)

    Stir...pour over ice in a short glass with twist of lime...salt on the rim if you want...but I don't use the salt myself.

    ==========

    And then there is this.....CoronaRita. First time I saw this, I thought...what a yuppie gimmick. First time I actually tried one, I thought...I'm gonna be having more of these. These darn things are good. Everytime we go eat mexican food, I have one nowadays. The beer feeds into the frozen margherita as the level goes down. It cuts the sweetness of the marguerita and adds an effevescense.

    Not a mixed drink but my personal love and cherished drink is a bit of Douglas Laing Port Ellen Old and Rare 25 year 1982.

    It's brilliant. My hubby buys me a bottle every few years (you don't drink it fast and it's best suited for winter by the fireplace). I love my husband's indulgence of me with this drink. It's very peaty and smells of Scotland's isles in winter.
