    I like booze.
    only thing i like more than booze, is trying it in new drinks.
    So, post here your own self created, or just interesting concoctions you've found.

    Haven't Named It Yet
    2 jiggers vodka
    6 oz Black cherry juice.
    Shake with ice, strain into glass
    Fill with soda water

    Pretty good considering i made it out of the blue. The vodka is barely noticeable and the cherry hits as an afternote.

    What is a jigger? Sounds like a good drink!

    Plus it's fun to see people's face when you say it!

    Still needs a name:
    1.5 Jigger of Gin
    .75 Jigger of Jagermister
    Shake with ice, strain
    Top off with Aloe Vera drink (available at T&T Markets and Save-On)

    Truly decent.
    Maybe a tad more Jager next time

    The Rosie! (Named after a buddy that recommended the ingredients)
    1.5 oz Jameson
    .75 oz peppermint schnapps
    .5 oz absinthe

    My first attempt at a layered shot. Not bad. Wanted it to be a flaming drink, but the absinthe diluted.
    Next attempt will be with heavier ingredients to try and stop that

    Shots are fun... especially when you don't remember what they are anymore!

    This one ended up being a bit much for a shooter. But I'm about to attempt one with heavier ingredients.

    1 oz banana creme de banana
    .75 oz brandy
    .5 oz absinthe.

    Still won't light, but the ingredients seperate much nicer

    Me and a buddy have an ongoing competition for creating drinks.
    It hasn't always ended pleasantly.
    But alas I'll take that burden for this forum. To investigate and report on different alcohol combinations to present the most palatable for your consumption.

    I thought this was getting all racist at first

    I was all like "how is that a unit of volume?"

    You're not wrong.
    We do like to justify our shortcomings!
