1-900-SOME-OF-THE-NAMES-FOR-THOSE-DRINKS-ARE-FUK-EDUP

Out of the top 10 list I've only tried the margarita.
I didn't know what a Sangria was made up of so I looked in my...Spanish-English dictionary. It has just informed me that it's red wine, fruit juice, and sugar. Muy interesante!

I have to admitt my ignorance when it comes to drinks... never had much of them as I never found anything that can muddle up the alcoholic taste... I don't like that taste at all.

I've made and had all of those except the 1-900 one (have no idea what that is, never heard of it) and the L.I. tea #1 and Cosmo #1.. I'm not sure what the #1 means. I've made Cosmos and the L.I. teas before though (obviously). In my bar, the liquor popularities go from whiskey drinks at the top, vodka drinks as a near second, and then= distantly tequila drinks and gin and rum drinks taking up the end. Shots of Jager are pretty popular. Mmm.. I used to hate Jager until I started being a bartender.

The newest drink thing I've made up is called the Butt Pirate. Here's how I make it:
1 highball glass filled with ice
4 second pour of spiced rum (about 1 1/2 ounces though you can go with 2 oz.)
2 second pour of grenadine (3/4 ounce) This makes the drink pink. And sugary.
2 seconds Rose's lime juice (or 3/4 ounce of squeezed lime)
3 dashes of bitters
fill the rest of the way with half soda water and half pineapple juice. Top with a couple cherries and a pineapple chunk if you got it.
There you go.. the Butt Pirate! Arr!

If you can't get bitters (recommended) then replace the bitters and the soda water with ginger ale.

I don't know if you noticed or not, but if you go to the web site and click on the name of the drink, the recipe will display.

I've had one or two of them...Sangria and Margarita are very common.

Jello shots (though we would call them vodka jelly) used to be sold in Disney, though they must be on a health kick now as there was no sign of them last year.

There is no way I'd even try any of the Iced Tea drinks...I've had 'normal' iced tea and it was disgusting so I'd be put off by the name alone. Mind you, looking at the recipe, it may be ok.

I didn't notice that.. I didn't notice the link to the website at first.
The "Piece of Ass" looks tasty..
I bookmarked the site for later perusing.

I must admit, I was waiting with baited breath for Vandal to respond to this thread, given that this is his speciality.

The only mixed drink I ever had was a Brandy Alexander, and maybe a Strawberry Daiquri. I noted they didn't count. :confused:

I really hate the juvenile names bartenders come up with for drinks.. but I guess sex sells, especially with liquor. I like Stiletto Confession, though.. kind of a ring to it. Sounds tasty, too..
