Evil Tongue

Evil Tongue drink recipe - Gin, Midori, Sour Mix, 7-Up

The Evil Tongue cocktail is a beautiful translucent green, and it tastes like citrus and melon. What more could you want in a drink? This is not as sweet as your typical Midori drink. The citrus notes are also a bit stronger than the melon, so it's one of those few drink recipes where the … [Read more...]

Monkey in a tree

Monkey In a Tree drink recipe: Malibu Rum, Creme de Banane, Grenadine, Midori, Pineapple

The Monkey in a Tree is supposed to be a golden cocktail with a layer of green Midori floating on top, or a golden cocktail with the Midori at the bottom like a sunrise effect. But it all depends on the brands you use for the other ingredients. Sometimes it just all mixes together. But that's … [Read more...]

Frozen Girl Scout

Frozen Girl Scout drink recipe - Creme de Menthe, Chocolate Ice Cream, Milk

The Frozen Girl Scout cocktail recipe calls for green creme de menthe, but I'm not sure why. The color just got lost in the brown of the ice cream. Maybe their idea of "scoops" is more modest than mine? Whatever! You can't go wrong with this one, even if you don't get the ratios just right. … [Read more...]

Blue Goose

Blue Goose drink recipe - Hpnotiq, Grey Goose Vodka, Lime, Orgeat Syrup

The Blue Goose cocktail is gorgeous. It's a light, slightly cloudy blue that looks like it's lit from within. The white sugar rim against that sky blue makes me think of skiing. And that makes this drink a lovely choice for wintertime, or when it's hot and you wish it was cold enough to ski. … [Read more...]

Suffragette City

Suffragette City drink recipe - Rum, Grand Marnier, Lime, Grenadine

The Suffragette City cocktail probably got its name from being pinkish in color. It blends orange, lime and berry flavors with light rum, so it's very easy to like. This drink is light on the fruit flavors, so you can enjoy it when you want something a little bit fruity but not overwhelmingly … [Read more...]

Apple Cobbler cocktail

Apple Cobbler drink recipe - Apple Schnapps, Cinnamon Schnapps, Bailey's

The Apple Cobbler cocktail tastes just like it sounds - apple, cinnamon and something creamy with hints of caramel. It really does taste a lot like apple pie. This drink obviously makes a great dessert substitute. It's also wonderful served with milk, almost with one drink as a chaser for the … [Read more...]

Jet Black

Jet Black drink recipe - Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Black Sambuca

The Jet Black cocktail is, in fact, not jet black but more of a deep purplish blue. It certainly has a lovely mysterious look to it. Black Sambuca is a deep blue liqueur, but you use so little of it in this recipe that it gets watered down to a lighter blue, and then the sweet vermouth adds … [Read more...]
