How to Make a Tequila Sunrise

I love OJ and Vodka (Screwdriver), but never have I tried Tequila and OJ. I think the OJ might bring out the flavor of the Agave in the Tequila a bit more. What do you think? Here are the ingredients:

2oz Tequila
Fill with Orange Juice
1/2oz Grenadine

A very simple yet VERY tasty kind of drink. Almost makes you feel as if you are on an island! Check out the video below:

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Fish. However, I think the same would apply to some baked chicken or even fried chicken. Liquor does add a unique flair to your food! So I wouldn't be surprised if it was really tasty!!! Check out the ingredients below:

Drinking for Keeps: The Tower of Power

Look at that Mario piece! You already know what you're in store for! Shoutout to Mushroom Tower for the dope pic! Anyway, onto the drinks!

These days nothing too much amazes me, but I have to say this was pretty cool to watch. I love the concept of setting up a psuedo-tower to help make the drinks. The presentation was dope. Here you have 6 different shots:

Jagerbomb - Jagermeister + Redbull
Dr. Pepper - Amaretto and Beer + Coke
Randy Savage - Jack Daniels + Strongbow
Bam Bam Bigelow - Blue Curacao + Cherry Brandy and Redbull
Sakebomb - Hot Sake + Sapporo
Irish Car Bomb - Jameson's + Bailey's and Guinness

Now, from the first few drinks, you should already get pretty wasted. However, downing these the way this guy does and the speed! Um, can you say pure insanity?_? (no exercise). All right, here it goes. Peep this crazy guy down these in a flash!

How To Make The Root Beer Float Cocktail

First off, I used to love floats as a kid. I'm sure this would make another EXCELLENT party drink with an adult twist! I mean, who would turn down ice cream flavor with alcohol? LOL. Here are the ingredients:

1.5 ounces of Vanilla Three Olives Vodka
2 ounces of Root Beer Schnapps
A bit of Simple Syrup
A bit of Coca Cola
The tip with whip cream

That's it! Check it out below:

How to Make a Lemon Drop

You may have heard the song, "Shots" by LMFAO ft Lil Jon. Remember the one part of the song where Lil Jon breaks down different shots, and he says - Lemon Drop. Well, here is how to make one!! Peep the ingredients:

1oz Lemon Vodka
1/2oz Triple Sec
1/2oz Sweet & Sour

Pretty chill, right? Check what Mr. Skyy John has to say about this stuff, and catch a video of him rocking correctly. Oh yea, you can check the video to "Shots" right under the recipe vid!

How to make the JagerBubble Cocktail

Now this sounds extremely interesting. Never have I thought of mixing Jager with Vodka let alone a BubbleGum Flavored Vodka. Apparently, it all really goes together. That's definitely something I will have to try in a bar or something somewhere. The ingredients goes as follows:

1 oz. Jagermeister

1 oz. Bubble Vodka

4 oz. Cream Soda

What's crazy is you think the Jagermeister would over take the flavor. Not the case. Why? Well, the Bubble Vodka is a bit on eh side but when you put the cream soda in plus the Jager, it all comes out in a sort of bubblegum flavored taste. Apparently, the Jager has a little after kick that you'll pretty much taste getting into the bottom. That's understandable because it is at the base of the drink, right?

Anyway, check it out.

Thanksgiving Cocktail: How To Make The Turkey Feather

First of all, Happy Early Turkey Day (2 Days, I know).

2nd of all, Mega Shoutouts to Everyday Drinkers for posting this recipe:

2 oz. Bourbon
1/2 oz. Drambuie
1/2 oz. Amaretto

As you can see, it doesn't have too much flare, kick or tropicalness such as the other drinks I've posted. However, it's a nice kind of spiced drink perfect for the holidays. Enjoy!

How to make The PunchOut!

Here's a drink I came up with over the weekend that's really smooth tasting, but will put you on your butt!

All right:

2 Liters of Raspberry Simply Lemonade (it's a really good mix that isn't terribly sweet, but has a really great flavor).

1 pint of Ciroc Redberry (the redberry is pretty bitter as far as flavored vodkas go, and is the perfect base to keep the sweetness of the raspberry lemonade at bay).

2-3 shots of Three Olives Vodka (it'll make your drink stronger, but does not take away from the flavor and smoothness of the redberry).

There you have it! A nice, party drink for your people! Enjoy!

How to make Skittles Vodka

Well, here's a cool drink with a lot of flava and spunk. I guess you can call this one of the most popular drinks, but here's a bit of that with a twisted kind of mix to make it taste like a vodka on steroids! At any rate, here are the ingredients:

5 bottles of vodka
1 bag of skittles

Remember, it's best to filter your skittles to make a much cleaner drink. Also, it's better to drink this really cold!

Step 1: Organize your skittles (make even line with the flavor).

Step 2: Put them in the bottle, but make sure the amount is not too crazy because you don't want a syrupy taste. (I mean, who would want vodka that says like a fruity, syrupy drink?)

Step 3: Shake em up.

Step 4: Make sure you put them in something like a cold freezer for 24 hours. It's best to shake it up every so often within that 7 day period.

Step 5: Use a coffee filter to help get rid of the excess Skittles.

Once you are comfortable with doing these steps, you can slowly add whatever types of liquor you feel may add to the table!

For more info, check the table!

How to Make Jungle Juice!!!

Now as everyone knows, Jungle Juice will forever be the frat drink of choice! I mean, high level of alcohol and tons of juice to appeal to everyone. Who wouldn't drink it, right? RIGHT! All right, look at the picture above. Take a good look because that typical mix of a full handle of Everclear plus a full gallon of Hawaiian Punch is not what's about to pop off right now! This mix is much MORE POTENT!! WHY do you ask?

Well, let me break down the ingredients for y'all:

Bottle of Everclear (note that in certain parts you can only get lighter versions of Everclear, but the one I'm more familiar with is the 190 proof..for people that don't know what that entails, that's over 85%)

Take a look:

The rest of the ingredients is as follows:

Bacardi 151 (Another strong proof drink with EVERCLEAR!! WHAT?!)
3 Bottles of Vodka
Bottle of Apple Schnapps
Bottle of Malibu
Bottle of Gin
Bottle of Sour Apple Pucker
Bottle of Peach Schnapps

As you can see, from the recipe which will be shown in the video below, that is a TRUCKLOAD of alcohol. Now the thing with Jungle Juice is as much alcohol you put in, you normally put in 3x as much juice to hopefully mask the taste of the alcohol. Of course, if you eat the fruit, you'll be extremely twisted. For the recipe the Tipsy Bartender uses, he includes different things like:

Crush (Orange)
Pineapple Juice
Hawaiian Punch

Here's the video below:

How to Make a Zombie aka get you super crunk!

I haven't tried this out yet, but I may have to next week. I want a drink to put me on my ass! LOLOL.


2oz Dark Rum
2oz White Rum
1/2oz Grenadine
1oz Pineapple Juice
1oz Orange Juice
1/2oz Bacardi 151

Now, initially see Dark and White Rum together. I instantly thought total black out session, period! Now, I see you add a Bacardi 151 to the mix. Yeah, your ass is not getting home! LOLOLOL. I know I'll have to make sure I eat a lot before I even decided to partake in this. Now, I've had a full shot of everclear before (I have no idea why), but this might be a challenge for me. LOL. Anyway, check how the Tipsy Bartender mixes it up!

A Collage of Cocktails

I just thought this was a really cool picture of a bunch of famous cocktails!

How to Make - Sweet & Sour

This is pretty simple. One thing, pretty much all stores and liquor stores should have some version of sweet and sour. These are really great for Mai Tais, Margaritas, and Long Island Ice Teas. However, it's difficult to find in places outside of Europe. So, here's how to make it on your own.

All right, remember the other post with the Simple Syrup syrup mix? Well, all you do now is take an equal amount of the simple syrup and match it with lemon juice. Yup! Lemon Juice. To add a bit more volume, fullness, and an interesting taste. Use an egg white or two and stir it up really nicely!

That's pretty much it!!! Take a look at a visual below:

How to Make Simple Syrup

A lot of times in mixes you'll see this simple ingredient. You wonder, "What is Simple Syrup?". Well, let me tell you, it's not hard to make. The reason why bartenders might use this in your drink is to had more flavor as well as give your drink more volume. Here's how it goes:

The ratio is to a 2:1

2 Cups of Sugar
1 Cup of Water

First step: Take your one cup of water and bring it to a nice boil.
Second step: Take a measuring cup or just generally have an idea of what one or two cups look like, and pour accordingly into the pot of boiling water.
Third Step: Stir the sugar in the pot until it fully dissolves.

Now, the next post I'll get into how to make sweet and sour right from the simple syrup mix. Note, that you can use this simple syrup in a lot of other drinks such as daiquiris, hurricanes, and mojitos!

Get a visual of how to make this below:

How to Make the Diddy and OG Diddy

Yup, here's another Ciroc post. Two of my favorite drinks ever. The Diddy and the OG Diddy.

They are very simple to make.

The Diddy

Take 1.5 Ounces of Ciroc Vodka (Original Blue Label Ciroc)
Take 3 Ounces of Simply Lemonade
Shake it up (whether you have two cups or an actual mixer)
Then simply pour into a tall glass filled with ice.

*note, you do not have to use simply lemonade to make the drink, but I highly recommend it because it just tastes a lot better...something about the juice and the palms from the lemon just give it an extra flavor*

The OG Diddy

Take 1.5 Ounces of Ciroc Vodka (Original Blue Label, of Course)
Take 1.5 Ounces of Simply Lemonade
Take an additional 1.5 ounces of Welches Grape (any kind of Cranberry Grape juice will work..I use Ocean Spray Crangrape Juice if I don't have Welches)
Shake it up
Pour into a tall glass of ice.

If you are the type of person that doesn't look forward to a crazy after taste, this is the type of drink for you. It goes down smoothly, the natural snap frost grape flavor of the Ciroc + the lemonade and Crangrape work really well together.

Ciroc Peach Cocktails

*added Winter 2017* - Check out the new Ciroc Summer Colada

This Peach Flavored vodka is very smooth. While other peach flavored vodkas might have that serious burn, this is very nice and elegant going down. It has a few interesting floral and citrus notes that makes it perfect for sipping on ice or having in cocktail that only needs one mixer. You can use some orange juice or cranberry juice to keep it simple. Or if you really want a twist you can do a classic Sex on The Beach Cocktail using the Ciroc. It's called the Ciroc Peach on the Beach.

Seeing as I'm an alcohol connoisseur (if there is such a thing..no, I'm not an alcoholic..lol). I randomly decided to make a blog! Here's my first post!! I love Ciroc with a passion, and here is a cool person that knows how to make a mix for the fellas as well as the ladies. She goes by the name of DJ Makeup Box. Check out some of the cool recipes below
