Here’s a fun shot to make for your guests. It is called a Brain Hemorrhage, but I think this one looks more like a tornado so I shall call this one Stormy Weather. WW points who knows, sometimes you just have to not care and enjoy the simple pleasures in life (just not everyday)
- Peach Schnapps
- Bailey’s Irish Cream
- Blue Curacao
Pour to the way it’s listed above. Fill a shot glass 3/4 full of the peach schnapps, add the Bailey’s very slowly like I am talking super slow motion here. Add a bit of the blue curacao and than the grenadine. There you have it, a great conversation starter. Oh I must also add that this tastes damn good.
There are more crazy recipes for shooters and cocktails in The Bartender’s Black Book. We keep one handy beside our liquor cabinet in case we run out of ideas.
Sometimes I follow the recipes in the book and sometimes I use it to inspire new recipes that I make on the fly. When I am visiting friends, the Mixology application for the iPhone is also another great way to find and create new drink recipes.
I also have a bar mat permanently on my counter top because I experiment with mixing a lot. I found some nice bar mats on eBay sold as collectibles, but they are inexpensive and functional. It keeps our counter tops clean and non-sticky.
