Take The Hummer for a Test Drive

Take The Hummer for a Test Drive

Having drunk a healthy amount of whisky last week, I decided to once again return to my cocktail theme. I asked the bartender if he could recommend me a cocktail preferably with both a dirty name and an interesting backstory.

He didn’t fail (he rarely does) and made me a drink called The Hummer. The cocktail is made from rum, Kahlua and vanilla ice cream all blended together and served in a glass with ice. I won’t deny that it is very sweet, but it’s also refreshing, contains coffee flavouring and ice cream and is for these reasons hugely enjoyable.

As for the back story, it was created by a man called Jerome Adams at the Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit, Michigan in 1967. Adams was struggling to create a drink that patrons of the bar would think was as good as the drinks made by his predecessor.

Adams said that when he was experimenting he made a small batch of the drink and was about to go into the kitchen and give it to the staff to sample when a group of three men came into the bar, one of whom was the bar’s chairman. The story goes that the men drank the cocktail and liked it enough to ask Adams to make another batch, and then another and another.

As for the name, when Adams told the men that the cocktail didn’t yet have a name one of the guys said, “You know what? After two of these damn things, kinda makes you wanna hum.” Hence the cocktail got its name, The Hummer.

Have a Drink Between the Sheets

Have a Drink Between the Sheets

After a few days break drinking whisky and wine it was time to get back to the world of cocktails, specifically cocktails with dirty names. The bartenders at my local are now used to this theme and are beginning to get into it, this time they suggested a ‘Between the Sheets’ cocktail (quite a mild name compared to others).

First off, the cocktail is made with white rum, Cointreau, lemon juice and cognac. I think the bartenders also know my taste as I really enjoyed it. Obviously it was very citrusy but the rum and brandy gave it a pretty good (and tasty) kick. It’s a fairly strong cocktail, but drinking a few of them won’t knock you out so it was definitely possible to enjoy two without worrying about the after effects.

Most articles I’ve read on Between the Sheets suggest that it dates from Prohibition. One article put forward the theory that as alcohol was so scarce during Prohibition, they not only liked to make fairly strong cocktails so that you could get drunk on less, but they also liked to give them smutty names as at that time alcohol was already considered morally degenerate.

However, some people believe that Between the Sheets was first created by a bartender called Harry MacElhone at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in the 1930s. Obviously it can’t be both a product of Prohibition and originate in 1930s Paris but either way the evidence suggest the drink became popular very quickly.   The fact that Between the Sheets turns up in bartenders’ guides dating from the era suggests that it was considered a standard that all bartenders should know how to make.  

While the cocktail did fall out of favour for a while, it has enjoyed a resurge in popularity along with cocktail culture in general and has regained its status as a drink that most bartenders should know how to make.

Go Have a Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against The Wall

Go Have a Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against The Wall

I was telling a friend of mine about this blog and my theme of cocktails with vaguely (or explicitly) dirty names. He asked me if I’d written about the ‘Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against The Wall’ and I thought, perfect.

I immediately set off to the pub where I was promptly given a history lesson about this cocktail. It turns out that it’s essentially a variation on a Screwdriver (orange juice and vodka in a highball). What’s nice about the ‘Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against The Wall’ is that the name tells you how to make it. It consists of one part sloe gin, one part Southern Comfort, one part Galliano and then topped up with orange juice.

The ‘Wall’ part of the name isn’t so obvious; it actually comes from a reference to another cocktail, the Harvey Wallbanger which is made with Galliano, vodka and orange juice. The ‘Screw’ comes from Screwdriver and the Screwdriver got its name because American engineers would surreptitiously add vodka to small cans of orange juice and stir it with their screwdrivers.

There you go, now you’ll never forget how to make one. As for the taste, I thought it was very nice. When I was younger I used to love Southern Comfort but at some point, I began to find it far too sweet and while this was definitely a fairly sweet cocktail, I found that the gin and the Galliano stopped it from becoming too sweet.

There are a huge amount of variations on this drink, each one with its own appropriate name. For instance you can have a ‘Sloe Comfortable Screw Between the Sheets’ which contains vodka, Southern Comfort, sloe gin, rum, brandy and orange juice or there is the ‘Sloe Comfortable Mexican Screw Against the Wall’ which contains vodka, Southern Comfort, sloe gin, tequila and orange juice.

The Angel's Tit - A Heavenly Dessert Cocktail

The Angel's Tit - A Heavenly Dessert Cocktail

In the last few posts I’ve deviated from my theme of cocktails with dirty or silly names. I was reminded of this last night when I overheard someone ordering an Angel’s Tit cocktail. How was I supposed to resist trying that?

The Angel’s Tit is made from white crème de cacao, maraschino liqueur, half and half (in this case a mixture of milk and cream) and a maraschino cherry as a garnish. It’s pretty obvious where it got its name; the finished drink is a white creamy mountain with a bright red cherry on top.

I have to admit, some of the ingredients in the cocktail were completely new to me. I’d never heard of, let alone drunk, maraschino liqueur. It’s made in the Dalmatia region of Croatia by distilling Marasca cherries. It’s fairly sour and has an incredible smell. Similarly I’d never heard of crème de cacao. It’s simply a chocolate flavoured liqueur which tastes pretty much exactly as you’d expect.

Overall the drink tasted like something between an alcoholic fruit sorbet and frozen yoghurt. The maraschino liqueur added a nice sour fruit flavour which was countered by the milk and crème. It was extremely enjoyable, particularly so on a hot summer night.

Some people recommend that the drink is chilled for half an hour before serving, especially as it doesn't contain any ice. I might give this a go next time, I’ll just have to call ahead to the bar tender to let him know when to start making it.

The Negroni - A Bitter-Sweet Experience

The Negroni - A Bitter-Sweet Experience

Last night I took a break from my theme of cocktails with suggestive names as I wanted something bitter, the barman recommended a Negroni so I happily took him up on his suggestion.

Negroni cocktails are made from one part gin, one part vermouth and one part Campari. It is served with ice in an old fashioned glass and mine came garnished with some orange peel.

As always I’ve done some research into the origins of the cocktail. The most popular theory is that it was invented in 1919 in Florence, Italy. The story goes that Count Camillo Negroni invented it by asking the bartender to strengthen his favourite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin in place of the usual soda water. The cocktail proved to be so successful that the Negroni family established the Negroni Distillerie in Treviso, Italy and started to produce a ready-made version of the drink sold as Antico Negroni.

The drink has remained popular ever since, there is even an instance of James Bond drinking one after he disarmed an enemy’s henchman in Thunderball. More recently the Negroni featured in the television series The Sopranos as one of Bobby Baccalieri’s favourite drinks.

There is an early report of the cocktail from Orson Welles in a letter to the Coshocton Tribune in 1947. He said, “The bitters are excellent for your liver, the gin is bad for you. They balance each other.”

Slippery Nipple - A Liquorice Flavoured Coffee

Slippery Nipple - A Liquorice Flavoured Coffee

After writing about the Screaming Orgasm cocktail I remembered a Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie routine from the show A Bit of Fry and Laurie (video below). In the sketch the barman offers the customer a Slippery Nipple and of course, in keeping with my naughty cocktail theme, I had to go and find out exactly what this cocktail is.

The Slippery Nipple is a layered cocktail shot which is normally made from Baileys Irish Cream and Sambuca. Because of the difference in density between the drinks they remain separate in two distinct layers in the glass. The drink is served neat, with no ice or any kind of dilution and should be downed at once.

Once again there isn’t any definite answer as to how the drink got its name. Apparently there is evidence that it originated in the 1980s when cocktails underwent a rise in popularity. It is most likely that the name was just picked to be shocking, but when and where this occurred is likely to remain a mystery.

This was the first cocktail I’d drunk that came in shot form and I thought it was great. I’ve always been a fan of both Baileys and aniseed based drinks but had never thought of combining them. The result was kind of like a liquorice coffee with an extra kick. While it was sweet, it wasn’t sickly (which is always a danger with Irish cream) and I liked the way the Sambuca cut through the cream.

Another aspect of the Slippery Nipple that I like is how easy it is to make. If you’re ever hosting a party it will only take a few minutes to pour loads of them and not only do they taste good, but thanks to the layered effect they look great as well.

Screaming Orgasms - The Best Cocktail Yet

Screaming Orgasms - The Best Cocktail Yet

Continuing on the theme of naughty cocktails, how could I resist a drink called the ‘Screaming Orgasm’?

It is actually a variation on a cocktail called an Orgasm which is basically equal parts Amaretto, Kahlua and Baileys Irish Cream. The Screaming Orgasm variety is made from Vodka, Amaretto, Triple Sec and White Crème de Cacao together with a bit of light cream.

So basically, the Screaming Orgasm is an Orgasm with vodka. Apparently both can be drunk as shots but the drink I had was in a lowball glass. I actually quite liked this cocktail, I’m a big fan of coffee and cream and basically a Screaming Orgasm is an alcoholic version of both. I’m not such a big fan of vodka so I may actually prefer the straight Orgasm; nonetheless this remains one of the best cocktails I’ve tasted so far. Furthermore, it’s only about 20% abv, which means you can easily drink quite a few of them in one sitting.

Since drinking a Screaming Orgasm I’ve been doing some research the drink. It turns out, as I’m sure is the case with most cocktails, there is actually a huge amount of variation in how they are made and the recipes used (the ingredients above are those that my bartender told me he’d used). For instance, one variation I found used white rum and Cointreau. It’s not such a big difference, but I have a feeling I wouldn’t enjoy it quite as much. Either way, if you’re looking for a recipe, the one here on DrinkedIn sounds pretty good and has got to be worth a try.

I can’t find any information on how the Screaming Orgasm got its name, but if anyone does know, please comment as I’m quite curious. For now, all I can say is that I certainly wouldn’t mind having a few Screaming Orgasms in one sitting.

Sex on the Beach - It's Not Quite Strong Enough

Sex on the Beach - It's Not Quite Strong Enough

There are literally hundreds of cocktails to choose from and most of them contain ingredients that I would never normally drink. So when it came to choosing what to drink I decided to be adolescent and pick the ones with silly names, starting with Sex on the Beach.

The Sex on the Beach I drank was made from vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cranberry juice. However, apparently an alternative recipe is vodka, Chambord Midori Melon Liqueur, pineapple juice and cranberry juice. It seems pretty simple to prepare, mix the recipe together then serve in a highball over ice.

Before discussing the taste, I had to look into the origins of the name. There are a few stories around but one in particular is quite fun. In 1987 in Florida a drinks distributor had just started selling peach schnapps. The distributor apparently put together a competition that would pay the bar that sold the most peach schnapps a bonus of $1,000 and the bartender at that bar who sold the most would receive $100.

The story goes that a bartender working at Confetti’s Bar created the cocktail according to the recipe mentioned above and it was an instant hit. Customers began asking what it was called, the bartender decided that the main reason people came to Florida for Spring break was the beach and sex, hence the name Sex on the Beach.

I have no idea if this is true or not, but it’s a nice story. Either way, there’s barely a bar in the world that doesn’t know how to make some kind of Sex on the Beach, although there does seem to be many regional variations on the cocktail recipe. As for the taste, unsurprisingly I thought it was a bit sweet but it went down quite well. I can certainly see why it’s popular amongst social drinkers, it doesn’t feel particularly strong, the fruit juice is nice and it will get you drunk.

Hosting the best cocktail party

Hosting the best cocktail party

A cocktail is a great way to host your guests without necessarily spending a lot of time preparing food in large quantities. Whether it is a birthday celebration or just a simple get together party, you can make the event a memorable one by serving an amazing drink. No doubt, making the best cocktail drink is not very easy. Serving it in an effective manner is also quite a challenge.

Here are some tips you need to remember when deciding that your guests will be served a cocktail:

  1. A few simple ingredients can make a classic cocktail. You do not have to worry about stocking up on lots of ingredients if you are strapped for time or money. Bourbon, vodka and gin are some ingredients that you may not wish to do without. Having a variety of mixers will ensure your guests that they have a wide range of simple drinks to choose from. Such mixers as lime juice, cranberry juice, club soda or sour mix will come in handy and your guests can have a lot to sample. Ensure to have enough ice as this will be necessary for chilling.
  2. Have the right glasses and garnishes for the cocktail. The focus of the party will be on the drinks you are serving. This means that you will need to add a bit more of effort in serving it. Choose glasses that complement the kind of drinks you will be serving. At the same time, you need to find unique ways of garnishing your drinks. The added visual impact will elevate your guests’ desire to savour each and every serving. Do not forget that spiking cherries, for example, is a simple yet effective way to garnish as well.
  3. Add a bit of food that complements the cocktail you will be serving. You will not need to serve heavy foods as the party is ideally a cocktail one. Simple bites like sandwiches, nuts, pita crisps and several other light appetizers will come in handy being served alongside the cocktail.
  4. In every party, there are activities organised to keep guests occupied and entertained. When planning a cocktail party, you need to be sure that the activities you have slotted in will be those which complement the cocktails to be served. Many people find that such activities like pool and hula contests add a lot of fun to cocktail parties. Sometimes, coming up with an ideal theme that blends well with the cocktails you have prepared will add to the allure of the occasion. Hence, you may decorate the venue highlighting the colours that your drinks will have.

Having an effective cocktail event will usually depend on your general creativity when it comes to such things as mixing ingredients up and serving the drink. When you pay attention to all the little things that matter in a party, you will be able to get it just fine. Sometimes, keeping everything simple will add a sense of style and preparing and serving cocktails is not much different.

Some tips to serve your cocktail in an enchanting way

Having a cocktail in your party is indeed a fantastic idea that will add to the magic of the day. There are a dozen kinds of cocktail recipes that one could try out depending of course on a number of things; one of these has to be what will suit the majority of your guests. Hence, cocktails are hard to miss at many occasions. It is important to note that way you choose to serve your drink will also determine how much your guests enjoy it. After mixing your ingredients following the right directions and ingredient proportions, you need not go wrong in the presentation of the drink

Below are some tips that will help you to serve the cocktail with a bit of style:

  1. Know which glass type will work best for your kind of drink. For example, there are martini, wine, pint and shot glasses as well as champagne flutes. You cannot serve your drink in just any glass. Some of the most common glasses used to serve cocktails are highball glasses. The right kind of glass will give your guests the full experience of sampling your cocktail.
  2. Add tiny bits of ingredients into the cocktail for that extra touch of class. For example, cherries, small pieces of appropriate vegetables, fruit wedges or even dried fruit will not only add to the taste of the cocktail but will give it a visual appeal as well. Be sure though that these additions will not ruin the taste that the cocktail ought to have. You can use toothpicks or cocktail swords to spike these kinds of garnishes.
  3. Know the best dressing for your cocktail. There are many ideas that you can try out to decorate your cocktail presentation. Small umbrellas and mini flags as well as stirrers are some of the ingredients you can use to get the perfect garnish. This will add immense meaning to the general feeling elicited in guests once you begin to serve your drink.
  4. It is usually classy to provide napkins to your guests when you serve them with these drinks. You ought to choose napkins whose colour will match that of your cocktail. You can even choose to use a bit of design on the napkins to give them the extra visual appeal.
  5. Ensure to serve the cocktail warm or chilled depending on what it is made of. Inappropriate temperatures may damn the taste of such a drink. For example, cocktails that ought to be served cold need to be chilled. Preparing the glass by chilling it or warming it as may be appropriate is also advised.

You need to pay a lot of attention to the manner in which you serve the drink. Your guests need to get a feeling of fantasy simply in the presentation of the drink. Learning about the garnishes to use as well as the best glass type will help you appeal to your visitors’ sense of taste and vision.

Some Tips for Making a Perfect Cocktail for any Occasion

Some Tips for Making a Perfect Cocktail for any Occasion

A cocktail is a useful and important addition in several party circumstances. When you have the right cocktail mix for your guests, no doubt some people will ask you to share with them the ingredients to your wonder drink.

Hence, for any occasion where a unique drink will be necessary, here are some tips that you need to consider for the perfect cocktail mix:

Measure your ingredients... always

Ultimately, the taste of the drink will be determined by the combinations you have used in it. This means that you need not spare any length in ensuring that you have just the perfect combination of all ingredients. Failure to measure well may result in a cocktail without that unique taste. It might seem a little time consuming task to measure all ingredients. However, the results of measuring will be seen in the specific taste that you give the drink.

Use fresh ingredients for a tastier cocktail

When you are making a cocktail, what features first and foremost as your priority is its taste and the effect it will have on your guests. In this regard, you need to seriously consider using the freshest ingredient ever. When you are using juices especially, go for fresh rather than canned. Getting the juice fresh from a lemon or orange is a lot better compared to using the packaged juices which may not have that unique, fresh taste. Do not forget the additives used in juices which are not fresh as they will have an influence on the overall taste of your drink.

Use the correct glass for your cocktail

If you are serving the drink cold, the glass should advance this as well. Chilled glasses will work perfectly with a cold cocktail. It need not take a lot of time to have the glass ready for a chilled drink. A minute or less in the freezer or pouring cold water to them will help keep the drink colder for longer. At the same time, in the event that your drink will be served warm, try pouring warm water inside the glass before you serve the cocktail.

Summer Whisky Cocktails

Summer Whisky Cocktails

Whisky may not be the first drink that springs to mind when you think of summer refreshments, but for dedicated fans of the "water of life", every season is a good time to indulge in your favourite beverage. More commonly associated with roaring fires and brisk winter nights, whisky can be transformed into a refreshing summer tipple more easily than you think.

Connoisseurs of a good single malt may scoff at the idea of any alteration beyond a drop of water or maybe – just maybe – a few chunks of ice; but in fact, the warm, rich tones of a good whisky can form a wonderfully complex base for a range of tasty cocktails. Even the deepest, richest blend can easily be put on ice to transform its character entirely into a soothingly cool drink; while the lighter, fruity tones of some Speyside or Lowland malts, for instance, are ideally suited to summer cocktail recipes.

Still in doubt? Gather up a selection of bar supplies and try one of these delectable whisky cocktail recipes to see how effectively this hearty libation can turn into a zesty summer brew. While these particular cocktails were chosen because they work well with Scotch whisky, for a sweeter, smoother taste you can substitute bourbon or similar.

Whisky Sour

One of the most basic whisky cocktails, but also one of the best and simplest ways to give the beverage a summery twist when served on ice. The sharp blend of sweet and sour provides a welcome kick to complacent tastebuds, and the tart finish is a perfect antidote to overwarm summer days. Use fresh lemon juice in preparing the cocktail for maximum flavour and impact.

  • 1 1/2 oz whisky
  • 1 1/2 oz lemon juice (ideally fresh)
  • 3/4 oz sugar syrup
  • maraschino cherry to garnish (optional)

Use a cocktail shaker to mix the whisky, lemon and sugar syrup together with ice cubes or crushed ice. Strain into a sour glass to serve (an old fashioned glass can also work).
