CaprioskaScotty’s Drink of the Week from the Last Gen (Feb 2013) episode of Sanity Claws Radio!

Caprioska – Combine in a shaker 1 cup ice cubes, 1 half lime (quartered), 1/4 tsp sugar, and 2 1/2 oz vodka.  Shake and strain into a double shot glass (preferably one that is roughly 1 miniature yeti high).  The percussion of the ice cubes hitting the lime wedges will lightly juice them – DO NOT zest the lime wedges or your face will turn inside out with tartness.  This shot earns the rare labeling of actually being good!

>>> Thanks, Friend-of-the-Show Johnny!

Gin and Tonic!

Gin and Tonic – Stir together over ice in a low ball glass 1.5 oz gin and 6 oz tonic water.  Squeeze a lime wedge over the cocktail then dangle it triumphantly from the rim of the glass!

>>> Thanks Nikki!

Fizzy Crown!

Fizzy Crown – Stir together 1.5 oz of Crown Royal, 1.5 oz of lime juice, 6 oz of club soda, and 4 tsp sugar in a low ball glass. Add ice cubes.  For a whiskey sour with a crisper, effervescing taste increase the Crown Royal to 3 oz and decrease the sugar to 2 tsp.  Mustache.

>>> Thanks Frosh!

Schizophrenic Purple Squirrel!

SchizophrenicPurpleSquirrelScotty’s Drink of the Week from the 2013 Predictions episode of Sanity Claws Radio!

Schizophrenic Purple Squirrel – Combine 1 shot of each in a cocktail shaker with ice: silver rum, coconut rum, blue curacao, grenadine, sweetened lime juice.  Shake and strain into a low ball glass filled with ice cubes.  Top with club soda.  ALTERNATIVELY you could misread those directions and combine all of those ingredients into a single shot.  It happens to the best of us.

>>> Thanks Scooty Puff Ranger!

Breakfast Shot – Start the day right with a healthy meal consisting of equal parts Jameson Irish whiskey and butterscotch schnapps in glass A and good ole fashioned orange juice in glass B.  Combine in your stomach in rapid, alphabetical order.  Tastes just like syrup and pancakes!

>>> Thanks Janel!
