The Strawberry Fields Forever cocktail is mostly strawberry schnapps with a touch of brandy and then some soda water to add carbonation. The result tastes a lot of a strawberry soda. This drink is perfect when you’re in the mood for overwhelming strawberry flavor. It’s actually amazing served alongside plain cheesecake, and you have to
The Bulldozer is so named because it goes through your brain like a bulldozer. It’s some strong stuff – malt liquor spiked with high proof rum. The taste of this drink is nothing to write home about.
