As Michelle stated, “this is my favourite kind of drink. The sneaky kind where you can’t taste the alcohol!”

Beware, this drink is deceivingly boozy and we polished off a 26 between the three us of in no time.

INGREDIENTS:
5 Parts Le Citron (lemon flavored) Vodka
4 Parts Iced Earl Grey Tea
1 Part Sugar
3 Whole Lemons
** I added some left over ginger simple syrup in the ice tea stage. Gave it a really nice flavor with the Earl Grey.

DIRECTIONS:
1) Place raw sugar in a punch bowl
2) Add warm Earl Grey tea to dilute
3) Thinly slice the lemons and add to the vessel, along with vodka
4) Chill for 2 hours
5) Serve over ice with lemon wheels

As the ladies of COW know, I have a new found love for all things PROSSECO. So, since the French 75 has been done, I scoured the internets for a “Martha” friendly champagne cocktail and discovered the Ginger Sparkler. After getting trashed at Christmas on the Ginger Fizz, I knew this would be delic!

Ingredients:

  1. 4 tbs. Grated Fresh Ginger (peeled)
  2. 1 cup Sugar
  3. 1 cup Water
  4. Vodka or Gin
  5. 1 Bottle (750ml) Dry Sparkling Wine (chilled)

Make ginger simple syrup*. In an tall 8 oz. glass combine 1oz. ginger simple syrup with 1 – 1.5 oz. Vodka/Gin. Fill the rest of the glass with Sparkling wine. Drink. Repeat.

NB–> In summer months, ice cubes are necessary.

*Ginger Simple Syrup
Heat  water and sugar over the stove until the mixture boils. Remove from heat and add grated ginger. Let this stand for 0.5 to 1 hour. Sieve out the grated ginger and chill until its drinking time!

After a drunkin’ debaucheous night with my family and the Canucks I made it my destiny to host a “BUILD YOUR OWN CAESAR” night.

Required Ingredients:

  1. 6 oz. Clamato Juice
  2. 1 -1.5 oz. Vodka**
  3. Celery Salt
  4. Worcestershire Sauce
  5. Freshly Ground Pepper
  6. Lime Wedge
  7. Celery Stalk

“Build Your Own” Ingredients:

  • Hot Sauce (we used tabasco)
  • Horse Raddish
  • 1 oz. Port (we tried red wine)
  • Prawns
  • Pepperoni Sticks
  • Pickled Beans
  • Pickles
  • Pepperoncini
  • Jalapeno Havarti Cheese
  • Black Olives

Rim a tall highball glass with celery salt. Mix the vodka, Worcestershire sauce, & black pepper over ice. Fill glass with Clamato juice and add lime & celery stalk.

Go buck wild with the “Build Your Own” ingredients and voila! EPIC Caesar.

NB–> The Port/Red wine was gross.

** Tequila and Gin work well too
