Almond Flavored Cocktail

Here’s another experiment.

  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • 1/4 oz Orgeat Syrup (I used Giffard’s)
  • 3 Dashes of Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters
  • Had nothing almondy in my house so I garnished with an Almond Roca

This drink is far from being perfected. I would imagine it as a lighter fragrant drink with a hint of almond.

It actually tastes pretty good, but it’s a bit sweet for my liking. Amaretto is already ¬†pretty sweet on it’s own and after adding the Orgeat Syrup, I think it gets too sweet.

This cocktail is similar to the Godfather

  • 1 1/2 oz Blended Scotch
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • Build on Ice and serve in old-fashion glass

The ratio for the godfather really depends on your preference for sweetness. It can be 1:1, 2:1, 3:1.

The Alien Brain Hemmorage!

  • 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 1/4 oz Baileys
  • Few drops of Grenadine
  • Few Drops of Blue Curacao
  • Double the ingredients if you’re making a 2 oz Shooter

First pour in the Peach Schnapps, next grab a teaspoon to help you slow the pour. You’ll want to drip the Baileys slowly into the shot. Basically what happens is that the Baileys curdles as it touches the Peach Schnapps. By dripping the Baileys, you’ll get these little brainy looking strings. Next pour a little bit of Grenadine into the cap and drizzle over the shot. Repeat for the Blue Curacao.

Chemically, the Baileys is a cream and the Peach Schnapps is a weak acidic liquid. Put together, the cream curdles up.

Taste: It’s sort of like a melt gummy worm/bear. It doesn’t taste gross. It just feels gross in your mouth.

This is a beastly looking shooter you might want to order for someone’s birthday!
