How do you make a chocolate cake? I use Frangelico or Hiram Walker Hazelnut Schnapps and Absolut Citron. A friend uses Frangelico (or a substitute) and Vanilla Vodka. Possibly a 1.25/.50/.50 of Frangelico/Vanilla/Citron? It’s a better upsell and tastes smoother and richer than the Frangelico chilled with sugared lemons.



Oh, it’s ladies night, so bust out some specials!

Fruit Punch-for the one who doesn’t want to taste the booze or is a big drinker or wants something fruity try this: 1.25 oz Vodka, rest of glass half sour, half sprite, layer triple sec into the mixture and then two splashes of grenadine. Pour/shake/stir. This one is from my “work wife” at the Fish Haus.

Megamosa-Just a mimosa with a half pour of Grand Marnier across the top. I find it gets the party started and is very popular among industry people in my town especially when you have 1/2 or 1/3 shot floaters of Grand Marnier. Possibly a good idea even for an Ultimate Pitcher or Ultimate Endless Mimosas.

Fun Dip-Everyone at work has their signature shot, it’s what everybody gets when they ask for a shot, it is what they drink when it’s offered, and it’s one only they can do jjuuuuusssttt right. This one is mine I adopted from the Scallop Haus: grape vodka, sour mix, sprite, red bull (1/3, 1/3, 1/3 each filling up the glass), splash of curacoa. It was originally a drink but I altered it to make a shot. It’s actually not that bad and ridiculous for upsells. I use McCormick’s grape vodka, but using a UV, Pinnacle or Smirnoff (etc.) flavored vodka could make it even more expensive.

Uptown Girl-A southern twist on the cosmo: it’s Absolut (or other top shelf) vodka, 1/3 shot of Grand Marnier, Cranberry juice, splash of lime. The G-Ma blends everything together and gives this drink great depth, and for a fruity martini, it’s utterly possible to charge a fair amount for something that can be whipped together and strained without craziness.



About Malachi the Drink Slinger

Finally transferring to that four year school in January, my goals made, my life set, the blinders dropped, my past signed and sealed, my future bright and airy, a writer, a thinker, a feeler, someone who is enthralled by beauty, an artist worth slightly more than two shits, a lover, a fighter, a person on the way to become the person I have always wanted to be....
