Milk and Booze! How To Make Sweet Milk Liqueur Milk liqueur: a Portuguese recipe made from equal parts vodka (or grappa), milk, and sugar. Say hello to the newest addition to our liquor cabinet! This rather improbable combination of vodka and milk makes a liqueur so smooth and perfectly sweet that you'll want to sip it straight. Get the recipe, our review, and some ideas for using this sweet liqueur below. We love the idea of making our own liqueurs, and we've been wanting to try this milk liqueur ever since we saw it in David Leite's most recent book The New Portuguese Table. Simply made by mixing vodka or grappa with an equal amount of milk and sugar, it just seemed so unusual and fascinating. The hardest part about this liqueur is waiting for it to infuse. But strained a few times to catch all those milk solids, the resulting liqueur is perfectly clear with a lovely sunshine yellow hue. This is definitely a winner in our book. Homemade Milk Liqueur adapted from The New Portuguese Table by David Leite Makes about 1 quart of liqueur

I Do Not Speak Tumblr, Dorm Wine Green Monster Cocktail | Every Wednesday I usually write a book review, but this week I was way to busy to sit down and read a book. I know it is a shame, but I have been extremely busy. So instead of reading a book, I made a cocktail. Who doesn’t need a cocktail half-way through the week. After a few shots of the green monster I tried it as a stand alone cocktail. The Green Monster 1 oz Blue Raspberry Vodka – I use UV Blue1 oz Midori1 oz Sour Mix1/2 oz Lemonade – Use no pulp lemonade1/2 oz Lemon-Lime Soda – I used Sprite The first step is to add ice to your shaker. Next add the vodka. All they had at the local ABC was miniature bottles of UV. Add the Midori. This melon liquor is a nice addition for summer drinks. Add the sour, lemonade and the sprite. My shaker is just a metal tin, so it requires a pint glass to finish it off. Fill your rocks glass with ice. The key to a good cocktail is ice. Now strain the drink into the glass. Fill to the lip and enjoy! There you go, the ultimate summer cocktail. The Green Monster

Perfect Iced Coffee Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. Iced coffee is a complicated thing, and there are many different approaches. 1. Given the previous set of facts, one would assume that the logical solution would be to brew hot coffee, then transfer the brew to the fridge, allow it to cool, and use it to make iced coffee from there. There are reasons this method results in a smoother, richer, more delicious concentrate than simply brewing strong coffee and refrigerating it. (Note: I’ve totally adapted/tweaked coffee/water amounts to suit my own tastes. I start with a big ol’ container. You can use a big bowl, a large pitcher…even a really clean bucket will work if you’re going for a huge quantity. Rip open a pound of ground coffee. Hi, Julie!

ancestryinprogress: boujhetto: Wine 101  ... Drinking Games | Film School Rejects Cult television shows always end up with a certain level of melancholy because their fans feel they were canceled long before their time. It is this fan devotion that keeps these shows alive in reruns and on the various home video platforms. However, once in a while, a show gets resurrected on a different network (like Cougar Town), as a major motion picture (like Serenity), or even on a totally different delivery platform (like Arrested Development moving to Netflix). Arrested Development is one of those cult television shows that the fans refused to forget. It may never have been as popular as the similarly quirky but far more mainstream Seinfeld, but for the fans, it has worked its way into the fans’ lives as much as any show has.

BASIL SMASH!!!!! « April 23, 2010 (Day 83) — Gin-Basil Smash I’m pretty sure around the time I originally started this little project, I made some sort of comment towards the effect of the resurgence in cocktailism — which I’m perfectly aware isn’t actually a word. Hendrick’s Gin — which, as I’ve mentioned before, is Jenn and I’s No. 1 favorite gin, hands down — contact me via Twitter today, asking what my next Hendrick’s-based cocktail might be. Well, who am I to say no to the guy who runs the Twitter account of my favorite gin? One major player in the recent revival has been Le Lion in Hamburg, Germany. You can see the full interview/demonstration on how to make this drink here. Plus, that just looks like one damn classy bar. Sweeeeet. (Photo found here) All the photos I’ve found of this drink, it has a very dreamy, cloudy green hue to it, garnished with one fancy little basil leaf on the top. But, before we continue to the recipe, I have something to admit. Artist’s Rendering But, enough talk. 1 bunch basil
