Mixology: June 1, 2011

2 Jun

I’ve been working on some new summer cocktails. The following is one I came up with yesterday but look for some several peach based ones in the coming days.

This guy comes to us courtesy of an excess of lemons, my summer goal of incorporating fresh fruit, herbs, and veggies into beverages, and a strawberry/ mint combo kick.

June 1, 2011
Add ice to glass of your choice
1-2 ounce Strawberry Vodka (I like Strawberry Smirnoff or your own infusion)
Splash of Peach Schnapps
Fill glass half up the rest way with homemade Lemonade:
– 8 Fresh Squeezed Lemons= roughly 1 cup lemon juice
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 3 cups water
– Stir till sugar dissolves, serve over ice.
Top with sparkling water
Garnish, fresh strawberries, watermelon, mint.
Mix and serve with straw.

Summer in a cup?

3 May

I’m trying mixology. It is a thing I’ve been trying for awhile but not formally, not that I am getting all formal now, it’s just that I want to see what I can come up with using things I haven’t thought up previously. No more cocktail books. I’m going rouge.

Lasts nights mix:

May 2, 2011

2oz strawberry infussed vodka
1oz peach Stirrings liqueur
1oz ginger Stirrings liqueur
Orange soda water
Mint leaves and strawberries to garnish.

2 fresh cut strawberries and ice in a wine glass.

2oz strawberry infused vodka (my own/first attempt at infusing.)

1oz peach and 1oz ginger of my new favorite liqueur brand, Stirrings Natural Liqueurs, poured over the vodka and strawberries.

Topped off orange soda water and garnished with mint leaves.

Unsurprisingly it tasted just like I imagined it would but not as sweet as you might be imagining. Score 1 for dungeon drinking.

Method in review:
Place strawberries in glass (any glass).
Add vodka and liqueur.
Top with soda water.
Garnish with strawberries and mint. Get messy.
