You know, I don’t really drink that much anymore but I was talking to a few people at work today and remembered a drink that I used to make when I bar tended that was POPULAR! It was called a Greatful Dead….I used to serve that drink and people would just order one after another. I know that there are many different names for drinks and same name for different drinks but that is what we called this drink……GREATFUL DEAD…it was made just like a Long Island tea with a slight change at the end.

1/4 oz Vodka

1/4 oz Rum

1/4 oz Gin

1/4 oz Triple Sec

2 oz Sweet and Sour

topped with 1/4 oz Chambord

build over ice then cap glass with mixing tin shake twice squeeze lemon add a straw GO TO TOWN!!!

Too many of these and you may just see the dancing bears!!!

It was a pretty cool drink. What are some favorites of yours? I would love to get some good ideas for drink recipes. I think that it is pretty cool finding out the different variations of the same drinks. You know the kids are going to grandma’s house sometime and little Mommie and Daddy Bloggers everywhere will need to unwind. What is your favorite drink?

  1. My favorite adult drink would have to be a mojito, which is especially cool and refreshing in the summer. Here’s the recipe I use to make it:

    Ingredients:
    Ice
    6 ounces light rum
    12 mint sprigs, or spearmint,
    8 roughly broken apart
    6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    4 tablespoons sugar
    Club soda
    4 slices lime

    Directions:
    Place ice in beverage shaker then add in the rum, 8 broken up mint sprigs, lime juice and sugar. Shake well and serve over ice in a high ball glass. Top off each glass with a splash of club soda.

    Garnish each with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint

    Cheers!
