May have to make Revenge this year... if I can remember the favoured one... Any old SCA(Society for Creative Alcoholism) people from TRF will remember that stuff! Cinnamon Apple was one!

I am one of those people from decades gone past, and I do remember Revenge.

 That kind of SCA I LIKE!   Revenge sounds interesting!

Chocolate Cake

1/2 shot of Vodka
1/2 shot of frangelico
slice of lemon
sugar

coat the slice of lemon in sugar, and pour the liquor in the shot glass. Lick the sugar off the lemon, but don't swallow yet. Take the shot, swallow, and then bite the lemon. It's supposed to taste like chocolate cake.

I myself haven't gotten it quite right just yet, but I'm willing to do the work necessary   ;D however, I have heard of this from several friends, and they say it's the most bizarre thing in the world.

I came across a new one that sounded really interesting.

I was watching a rerun of Anthony Bourdain today, and he was in Uruguay. A local was making a drink called Siete y Tres (Seven and Three). It's seven parts red wine and three parts coca cola. I'm drinking it now and it's....interesting. I can't quite decide if I like it or not. Sometimes it tastes like red wine, and sometimes like coca cola. I used a cabernet sauvignon, but it would be interesting to find out what different reds do to the flavor

 Well I like the red wine part!
  Not fond of sweet sodas.
 My favorite potion is easy to make. Take a tall glass. Fill with ice cubes. Fill with single malt scotch! It makes me happy!

I have not had a chance to make my melomel this year...things have been too hecktic... seems the standard.
I love blended potions... one I redid to suite  was the Grasshopper

I use

Mint Choc ice cream(in place of the cream)2-2 1/2 scoops
1 oz cream de menthe
1 oz cream de cacoa
1/2 oz good vodka
handful of ice

blend well this serves 2 easily!  I call it a spotted Grasshopper

Another is Berry ice

4oz vodka
bag of froz berry mix(good sized bag)
ice
ginger ale

blend ice,vodka and berrys add ginger ale until it is a nice mushy slushy! serves 3-4

Sooo, I'm doing one of those bad bump things where you bump a thread that's ancient.

What happened to the scurvy cat?

It's Bob Marley's Birthday tomorrow, so it's an emergency!

Well, hmm, I remember the day the pool guy came, we had been drinking scurvy cats in the twilight (sounds poetic, don't it?).

They had, uh, rum and Paula's TX orange in them, I think, and some orange juice. Emphasis on "some." :D

I decided we will have dark rum and Jamaican ginger beer cocktails. The ginger beer is infused with orange nectar.

 I think Meyers rum ,golden rum, Paulas TX orange and a dash of OJ- was there coconut rum too? That should be about right. They were tasty.I wrote it down somewhere?
 Your drinks sound good too! We used to like Rum and Ting- grapefruit soda from Jamaica. You can get it in Central Mkt!

For the holiday season, I put a bow on my Jack Daniel's bottle.

Other than that, I do enjoy a nice hot buttered rum as I sit by the fireplace. Teach would enjoy that, I'm sure!

I always wondered how you actually made hot buttered rum.
For some reason it makes me think of hot Dr. Pepper.
