How will you make these in the winter ?




I was stoned through grammar / English. I rely on spell checker and it never fails to get me.

One more mix.

Two parts Pineapple infused vodka
One part orange citron
One part white cranberry juice
Splash of lime juice
Shake, strain and pour into a martini glass

Tomegranate Martini

2 oz Vodka (Finlandia)
1/2 oz Triple Sec (Bols)
1/2 oz Gran Gala (like Cointreau but Italian)
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz pure pomegranate juice (Langer's from Costco)

Shake using the mdrew method. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Enjoy. Yes, I know that's a lot of "mixer". Get over it.




I finally got around to trying this "specialtini" and I've got to say it was outstanding. Tom, you've got yourself a winner. I'm a big fan. Waaaaaay too easy to pound these, though, so it took some self control not to pass out in the first 30 minutes!

As a slight twist, I made one batch with Absolute Limon, and that worked out quite nicely. Not sure if I'd permanently adjust the recipe to do that, but it was pleasant, so give that a shot (pun intended) someday.

Take care,
Rich

Glad you liked it, Rich! It's Mrs. Tuttle's current favorite. I agree with Mike's earlier observation that the pomegranate "needs" some lemon to pull it forward in a palatable way. You could scale back on any of that stuff to suit your taste, but I like a bit of orange, a bit of lemon and a bit of sweetness to deepen and balance both the vodka and the pomegranate. We rarely buy infused vodkas, but I'm weakening on the citrus stuff.

I hit several liquor stores this last weekend and couldn’t find any Gand Gala or Black Hills Bourbon. I guess Alaska just doesn’t have the market for them. But now I’m on a mission. I MUST find these bottles. I’m going to my local store owner to see if she’ll order them for me. She orders wine for me, so I’m sure she’ll get the liquor.

But I did get another bottle of infused vodka. I’m weakening…….another Finlandia. Mango this time and it’s very good. I’ve tried many other brands of the flavored vodkas and found them all to be sweet, but Finlandia seams to have the process down. They are not sweeter, you just get the flavor.

Mango Vodka. Good Lord, what have we become?

Mike, the Gran Gala isn't really anything too "special". It's pretty much a knockoff for Cointreau or Gran Marnier. I just like it because it is about half the price and it comes from Italy instead of France.

We don't get that Bourbon in WA, either. Lucky Californians with their BevMos. Grumble.

You know, I'm SURE Ken would be happy to grab a bottle of anything BevMo offers for y'all if you send him some money.

He loves it when I volunteer him for things, too.

Oh yeah, my favorite thing...

Just email me your Visa card number, I'll take care of it.

Although I'm pretty sure there are laws about mailing alcohol around between states...

OK, I finally got a chance to try out the Samoan Fog Cutter recipes with a willing audience and made a few adjustments based on user feedback.

1/2 of a 750 ml (26 oz) bottle of Orgeat syrup (shop somewhere Italian)
1 1.75L (64 oz ?) bottle light rum (I used Bacardi Gold)
1 750 ml (26 oz) bottle brandy
1 375 ml (13 oz) bottle gin
juice of 25 lemons
2L (2 quart) carton of orange juice minus the glass you had at breakfast

Combine all of the above and stir well in a big pitcher.

Pour into big coffee mugs 2/3 filled with ice. The ceramic mug adds a bit of tiki authenticity -- it just doesn't taste right in a plastic cup. Float a bit of sherry over the top of each drink. Add umbrella, fire up the patio lanterns and enjoy.

Repeat, adding a bit more sherry if anyone felt their first sip was too sour.

For individual servings :

1/2 oz orgeat syrup
2 oz light PR rum
1 oz brandy
1/2 oz gin
juice of one lemon
2 oz orange juice

shake with ice, float sherry over a spoon, enjoy

EDIT -- based on anecdotal evidence, it seems to me that "the tiki lifestyle" probably did not involve regular work hours. Can anyone provide insight ?

SECOND EDIT -- with luck, this weekend will be Tomegranit time... will let you know if anyone survives

Through a combination of "creative substitution" and "not paying attention" I managed to accidentally mix one of my guests a combination of V8 and gin, plus the usual seasonings and celery stalk.

We call it the "Bloody Awful". It tastes far worse than you might imagine.
