    ****tail Recipes

    Ok seeing as I am sure some of you did some drinking last night...I thought we could start a ****tail thread and share some of our faves.

    Two of my faves are

    The Polly Bar's "The Mistress" - Polly is a ****tail bar in brunswick...if you love ****tails you will LOVE this place...and when I have been there this is my drink of choice, and I have mastered the recipe too

    Use a nice glass, like a martini or ****tail glass. Coat the rim with castor sugar...to do this I normally have a saucer with castor sugar in it, rim the glass with one of the liquers I normally use the strawberry schnapps (just dip your finger and run it around the edge) then turn the glass upside down and dip it in the castor sugar. You can also use a damp teatowel or sponge (new/clean) but I prefer the liquer. Or you can use fruit too.

    After you have sugar coated the glass fill the glass with some ice (as much or as little as you would like)...then...add...

    1 shot Vodka
    1 shot Strawberry Schnapps
    1 shot Lychee Liquer
    And fill the glass with Champers


    Second Favourite would be...

    Cosmopolitans (this recipe is for the real thing, so it is quite strong)

    Using a shaker ...

    4 shots of vodka
    2 shots of cointreau
    2 shots of cranberry juice
    1 shot of lime juice

    Add some ice after all the ingredients, shake and pour....into a martini glass of course If you wish to sugar coat the glass, run a wedge of lime around the edge of the glass and then dip in castor sugar.

    A couple of my faves from the top of the head

    **** Sucking Cowboy
    3 doses of Butterscotch Schnapps
    1 dose of Irish Cream

    Serve in a shot glass

    Prepare in Glass

    How to prepare:
    Three quarters of a shot glass filled with Butterscotch Schnapps. Using a spoon to assist with the topping up of Bailey's Irish Cream.

    My SIL can't wait till I have the baby so I can go around to down a few of them at her place

    There is also one that I thought sounded absoultly horrid ie what was put into it but wasn't too bad. It was called an "Andy" and was Kahula and Coke but I can't remember how many parts of each it was.

    I have to say this is my fav. We found it in an old ****tail book one afternoon at my sister's while trying out every new recipie we could find ( I used to drink a lot there) Anyway, here goes:

    Golden Dragon
    30ml Grand Marnier
    15ml Galliano
    90ml pineapple juice

    mix and drink. Of course, you can always use more, just stick to those proportions.

    I used to make this Iced Coffee for my Mum in Summer when Dad was out. She said it helped her to sleep! Cadbury's liquer works really well instead of Baileys, but you can use almost any liquer in this. I'm sure we all know what goes well with coffee!
    Baileys Iced Coffee
    2tsps French Style Jarrah coffee powder 15ml hot water
    15ml Baileys
    130ml milk
    Ice cream

    Add coffee to water. Stir until dissolved. Add Baileys, milk and stir.
    Add ice cream just before serving.

    Since you're nice people I'll share some of my recipies with you (I don't need them anymore so they're declassified lol).

    Long Island Iced Tea
    The secret is the sugar syrup. You make this by simmering sugar in water until it reduces to a syrup.
    build it over ice in a highball glass or a hurricane glass
    1 shot (30ml) vodka
    1 shot bacardi
    1 shot gin
    1 shot tequila
    1 shot of sugar syrup
    dash of lemon juice
    and top up with coke.

    extra extra dry martini
    prepare in a shaker over ice
    1 shot chilled bombay saphire
    get a bottle of dry vermouth hold it between the light and the shaker so that the light passes through it to the gin
    turn the shaker over once and then back again
    pour into a martini glass
    for the modernist you may add a touch of midori (it looks nice)

    Doesn't have a name but you build it over ice in a highball
    1 shot vodka
    1 shot butterscotch schnapps
    1/2 shot baileys
    top up with milk.

    for a variation on the muddled drinks get mixed berries, put a few berries in the bottom of a glass with some castor sugar and some vodka, bash it a bit, add a bit of ice, crush it up a tiny bit and stick a straw in it.

    a twist on the cowboy - after you build it get a shot glass and put grenadine in it. get a straw and put it in the grenadine. hold your thumb over the straw to create an airlock. lift the straw and put a couple of drops (no more) of grenadine in the cowboy. it will sink to the bottom making an interesting pattern and differant after taste.

    What's your favourite ****tail recipe?

    I'm trying to plan a last-minute ****tail party for my sister's hen's night, as the races here in Brisbane have been cancelled due to equine flu. So ... I need a couple of good, girly ****tails - preferably with ingredients that will do for more than one ****tail IYKWIM.

    What's your favourite ****tail recipe?

    I love....

    Crushed ice...quarter limes and squeeze 2 over the ice...throw the limes in...a good splash of gin, then that fizzy pink grapefruit drink....garnish with a sprig of mint and SWILL. It's easy and relatively cheap. It looks very girly...I guess you could replace the gin with vodka or bacardi too, but I love the citrusy taste that gin has.

    In my Zombie proof fortress.

    Pickled Brains
    1 nip Kahlua
    1/2 nip Cointreau
    Yellow Advocaat
    Shot glass

    First layer Kahlua, then using a spoon layer the Cointreau so that is floats on top.
    Then carefully dribble the advocaat so that it looks like a little floating brain.
