Potions 101
« on: May 15, 2008, 02:35:51 PM »
 Here is a place to post your special potions!

Here is one Lord A and I whipped up a few years ago.

Mead Evil Kilt Tilter
Mix
1 part Mead
1 part Scocth
 Serve over crushed ice!
Garnish with a blue ribbon.
Enjoy!

 I revived this thread early this AM- but it disappeared. Nargles again?
  Post your potions and I hope they stay for all to enjoy!

This is my favorite potion, an old recipe which I learned from a St. Augustine bartender.
I shared this recipe with my old potion master, Lord A.
It has marvelous restorative qualities!

Dirty Bird Martini

3 parts Grey Goose Vodka
1 part very dry vermouth
Dash of olive brine
3 olives (small, so as to not take up too much room in the glass)
ice

Mix first three ingrediants and stir over ice. (contrary to popular belief and James Bond movies, you can't bruise vodka).
Poor straight up into cocktail glass.
Garnish with olives.

Good for what ails you!

 That sounds wonderous indeed, Amras! You must make one for me some day!
I need restoration!

 Lord A's Manhattan-
 2 parts Makers Mark Bourbon
1 part  Martini and Rossi sweet vermouth.
Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice.
 Serve in chilled martini glasses.
 Garnish with a small cherry- or a twist of lemon peel.
Beware they are addictive and strong. All booze!

 We must combine the threads. Originally Potions 101 was in my realm. Get John to move your posts here?
See you at Scarby!

 This is more of a dessert potion.
 Wizards Delight:
Marinate fresh sliced strawberries in a generous amount of sweet Sherry and  triple sec! Serve over angel food cake- or alone in a bowl.  Over ice cream is good too.

Summer Bourbon Punch
Shaking up the drink in jars makes it frothy, but you can also mix all the ingredients together in a large pitcher and add ice.
INGREDIENTS
    1 cup sugar
    1 1/2 cups water
    2 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
    2 cups Bourbon Whiskey (16 ounces)
    1 cup fresh orange juice
    Ice
    2 lemons, cut into thick slices for garnish
DIRECTIONS
1.   In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar and water and boil over moderately high heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Let the syrup cool completely. 
2.   In a very large jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the syrup with the lemon juice, Bourbon and orange juice. Shake vigorously. Add ice and shake again. 
3.   Fill tall glasses with ice. Strain the lemonade into the glasses, garnish with the lemon slices and serve.
MAKE AHEAD Except for the Bourbon, the ingredients can be mixed together and refrigerated overnight.

The Canadian Car Bomb

1 pint glass
1 shot glass
1 bottle/can Molson Canadian
Canadian Club Rye Whiskey
Real Maple Syrup

Take a tall pint glass and pour in the bottle (or can) Molson Canadian.  Fill the shot glass 3/4 with Canadian Club Rye Whiskey, fill the rest of the way with real maple syrup.

Prepare thyself.  Take two or three deep breaths.  Drop the full shot glass into the beer and chug.

Oh, so yummy.

An Irish Car Bomb can be had similarly, except you use Guiness, Irish whiskey and Bailey's Irish Cream
Always on the lookout for my next noble cause.

And because a flail don't need reloading, that's why.
