Some Drinks To Try

I compiled this list from a variety of places, and I have tried to give credit to everyone, but some of these people are hard to track down. And now, I present to you, a variety of drinks:

All of these are presented in their original form. Anyone who feels infringed upon can e-mail me.

Whisky Dave Tells All:

I'm like a bit of malt myself. I also like making cocktails that taste
nice enough for the average female to enjoy but still strong enough to get
you rat assed. (no sexist just experience). So try these : 

Chery brandy + Creme de cacao + milk  1/3 of each cut down on the milk
latter on.
as above but use these instead of cherry brandy.
Creme de menthe, .. de bannana 

just mix a basic Cacao/kulal/tia maria (chocolate) with another liquior or
tequla for a winter kick.

Don't use cirus or cola  stuff with baileys.

I use milk or single cream so you can poor it in a large glass and drink
it and not throw up on small measure.

If you can find creme de cacao white or clear then the colour of the other
bit will look great.

Subject: 3.15 What is 'Snakebite'? 

Half a lager and half a cider. Lager is what americans would call "beer"
and cider is the same sort of thing made from apples basically. The
combination is somewhat lethal. A lot of pubs will refuse to serve it.
Variations: "snakebite black" - the same drink with a splash of
blackcurrant in it, also known as a "purple nasty" up north and is the
cliche goth drink (also can be prepared as snakebite and black with a
pernod and a vodka in it). "red witch" - a snakebite with pernod and
black in - not to be taken lightly under any circumstances.
"Anaconda" - made with half a pint of Theakstons Old Peculiar (or
another real ale) and a bottle of Diamond White or 1080 (or other
strong dry cider), a dash of black and two straws. It can also be *real
beer* and cider (i.e. ale) e.g. Theakston's Old Peculier (~5.5%) +
Scrumpy Jack (erm, ~5%ish), a rather entertaining mix

From TaB.1.0


The Anaconda Snakebite is made with half a pint of Theakstons Old Peculiar  
(or another real ale) and a bottle of Diamond White or 1080 (or other strong 
dry cider) , a dash of black and two straws.  

	o 75% of those drinking it were sick
	o 15% fell over
	o 10% had to drink more than one pint to achieve the same effect.

This drink has the colour and consistency of slightly congealed blood 
(some sort of reaction between the bitter and the cider).  
It turns to poison in your stomach.  Goes well with Kebabs.

A bitter Snakebite From alt.vampyres


 Let's begin with the True Classic of VAMPYRES, the famous Viking
 Margarita, brought to you by the legandary Countess E. Bathory (and a
 cast of thousands) ( ).
 Viking Margaritas are very smooth and a bit sweeter than the average
 Margarita. You sit sipping (or guzzling, if you prefer) your
 margarita(s) in perfect innocence... and when you try to stand up, you
 discover someone has sneaked in behind you and bashed you on the back
 of the head with a mace. Standing up is NOT an option...
 The recipe (which I have from a bartender friend) is as follows:
      a Fifth of decent tequila (I prefer gold)
      1 pint Triple Sec
      2 large cans lemonade
      2 small cans limeade
      lime juice to taste
      salt for the rim of the glass
 Frozen lemonade and limeade go into the pitcher. Fill each lemonade
 can with tequila (or dump in the fifth - same result); fill each
 limeade can with triple sec (or dump in the pint); add four cans of
 each size of water (less if you like yours strong) and add lime juice
 to taste. Serve with a wedge of lime in a well salted glass. (makes
 roughly half a gallon)
 This one is from Antonio Salieri ( AUVERS@DRYCAS ). He says he has not
 tried it, but I have. I'd advice being careful with chili/cayanne and
 increasing the amount of orange and lime juice to 1/4 cup.
      (1 serving)
      1/4 cup white tequila
      1/4 cup tomato juice
      2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
      1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
      1/2 to 1 teaspoon powdered red chili or cayenne
      dash of kosher salt
      freshly ground black pepper to taste
      1 cup crushed ice
      2 lime wedges
 Combine all the ingredients, except for the lime wedges, in a shaker
 or blender and mix thoroughly. Squeeze the wedges into a tall glass
 and fill with tequila mixture.
 Banshee ( EBOV21@ERCVAX.EDINBURGH.AC.UK ) treats us chocoholics to
 these delicacies. What a pity that he himself does not appreciate
 them: "As the list's premier chocolate hater I've not tried any of
 these and can't say what they'll be like. (Horrible I'll bet)." Don't
 let him discourage you. From my experience I know the first one is
 Break up 75-80 grams of chocolate into a pan with 550 ml of milk. Heat
 gently and whisk until the chocolate has melted, chill, then add 7-10
 tablespoons of rum and serve over crushed ice.
 Melt chocolate into milk as above, adding a pinch of ginger and
 allspice before chilling. When cold put into a cocktail shaker with a
 tablespoon of honey, 5 tablespoons of rum and 2 table- spoons of eau
 de vie. Shake and turn out into glasses.
 The next batch of drinks all involve the use of Creme de Cacao, a
 liqueur made from distilling cocoa beans.
 Mix equal parts of brandy, creme de cacao and cream together in a
 cocktail shaker with some crushed ice and serve.
 Mix equal parts of creme de menthe, creme de cacao and cream, pour out
 over 4-5 ice cubes in a glass.
 Mix equal parts of gin, vodka and creme de cacao in a cocktail shaker
 pour over crushed ice and serve.
 The following cocktail recipes by Mark Vladimir Arosco ( ).
 VAMPIRE COCKTAIL 1 (experiment #27)
      1/2 bottle light corn syrup (Karo Syrup)
      4 teaspoons powdered cocoa (Unsweetened baking cocoa)
      2 tablespoons of cream (for color)
      5 drops of yellow food coloring (liquid)
      40 drops of red food coloring (liquid)
      water to get the correct consistancy
 best served in an IV bag, available from your local medical supply
 OK, so it's fake, but it looks good... and it's chocolate.
 VAMPIRE COCKTAIL 2 (experiment #3)
      1/4 cup fresh blood (mixed to prevent coagulation)
      1/2 bottle red grape juice (to add light fruity taste)
 This is the real stuff. The extra fluid prevents the body from
 rejecting the blood as too salty.
 VAMPIRE COCKTAIL 3 (experiment #23) (aka liquid smurf)
      1/4 cup milk
      1 ripe banana
      10 drops of blue food coloring (liquid)
 Mix in a blender. Pour in a glass that is "three apples high" and top
 with whipped cream. The name says it all.
 Cecily ( D020214@UNIVSCVM.CSD.SCAROLINA.EDU ) knows a good blood
 substitute for those who cannot get the right stuff and hate
 chocolate. I'd suggest adding some vodka into this one.
 An interview with Geraint Wyn Davies reveals that the blood on that
 series is really the black current drink Ribena in almost undiluted
 concentrate form. I suppose you could put any kind of liquor into it.
 The ironic thing is, that Wyn Davies says it's sickeningly sweet, it
 nauseates him, and that he actually did get sick from it after one
 scene had to be redone many times.
 Here's an intriguing little recipe from Vincent Fisher, P.I.
 Pour a generous shot of strong clear alcohol, something on the order
 of 120 proof peppermint schnapps. Add a small dollop of Bailey's Irish
 Cream, pouring with a careful hand so that it does not mix into the
 clear. Mix a few drops of grenadine into the clear alcohol before
 adding the Bailey's -- the result, if done properly, is known as a
 Bloody Brain. You'll understand.
 Hemogoblin ( SLIB1532@VEGA.SELU.EDU ) writes: "The favourite drink of
 hemogoblins everywhere is a Barnabas Collins: gin, blood and Hershey's
 chocolate syrup."
 Mystress Myrmidon ( LAURENN+aCALVIN%World_Resources@MCIMAIL.COM ) and
 her friend Laybrother Bat of the Order of St. Germain provide us with
 a special recipe, directly from the Abbey kitchens:
 In a jigger shot glass, mix equal parts sacramental wine and Irish
 whiskey; shoot three in quick succession, for the Father, Son, and
 Holy Spirit. The trick is to get the 'AMEN' out before you fall to
 your knees!
 The next one is the personal favourite of the keeper of this list
 herself, susi the weirdward wolf (knuuttila@finuj
 Smash one clove of garlic into a small strainer. Pour a bottle of beer
 gently over the garlic ( I prefer a Finnish brand called "Vaakuna",
 which means "coat of arms", a dark lager type beer ) and add some
 whisky. You can also put the smashed or sliced garlic into the drink
 without straining, but it looks better if there are no garlic pieces
 floating around.... I do not know about its effect on vampires, but it
 certainly gives you such a bad breath the next morning that every
 breather keeps away from you.
 BLOODY MARY (or whoever)
 Finally, Tim ( ) reminds us of the simplest one: "Don't
 forget about bloody mary, bloody bob, bloody jim, actually anybody
 will do." But some vintages are better than others.
