DRINKING BUDDIES

Cocktail Time!

So even though i've still been busy with the whole house closing headache (which still isn't comepleted), it has somehow not compromised my drinking habits.  To celebrate, I want to share an old shot recipe that I've had for a long time, and an excellent little deal you can do at a party.

Nuclear Fallout
1½ oz. Pomegranate Vodka
splash of Grenadine
1 oz.  Cranberry juice
½ oz. Blue Curaçao

Easy enough,  all you really do is shake the first three ingredients over ice, pour into a shot glass, and drizzle the blue Curaçao over the back of a spoon.  You can easily just throw everything together in the shaker, but pouring over the back of a spoon not only creates a great layer of flavor, but a neat little visual.  Here's a closeup picture of what the finished product should look like.  Photo courtesy of my lovely wife, Crystal!


Have fun with this one!  Simple and enjoyable!

  4. Not big on cocktails, but I love layered shots:
    Butterscotch schnapps with Irish cream on top is a favorite of mine.

  6. I'm kinda lacking the ingredients for this. Any recipes that use plain vodka?

  7. @lef - You can use plain vodka in this one, just add a little more Grenadine which is Pomegranate syrup.
