Mai Tai with a Twist

One of our friends, Allie, left some in coconut flakes and soy sauce roasted almonds at our place, which inspired me to create my new personal adaption of the Mai Tai:

Finely sliced red (dried) and green (fresh) chilis, ground roasted almonds, coconut flakes, Jamaican and Cuban rum, Oregat syrup, all pestled in a glas and put into a shaker with some ice. Add more rum, Orange Curaçao, a dash of Tangerine syrup, some fresh lemon and orange juice, shake well. Strain into a tumbler with some crushed ice. Garnish with more ground almonds and mint. Done.

Spicy, nutty, fresh!

The only cocktail recipe you’ll ever need

“One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, and four of weak.”

If you find yourself trying to make a cocktail, but don’t know the ratio of the ingredients (and are too drunk to google it)…

One of my passions are cocktails. I was a bartender during in university, which by the way, to date is the best job I ever had: Getting drunk, meeting girls AND being paid for it. Awesome!

Anyway, I kept making drinks as a hobby (much to the delight of everyone around me) and as I stumble over new recipes once in a while that are worth remembering, I decided to make it a new category in our blog. Basically my own online bar menu.

Today after a nice surf, I looked for an afternoon cocktail, and found this little nugget (plus it is a good example for the “universal recipe”):

Coco-Jello Loco

1cl lemon juice
2cl coconut syrup
3cl watermelon liqueur
4cl Vodka

I put in a bit more lemon and reduced the amount of Coconut syrup, but a very nice drink for those who daydream of tropical beaches, and much like me, like a girly drink once in a while…
