Best "Beverage" recipe

Recommended Posts

Sparked by all the wine and beer mention lately (and possibly the drink in front of me...), I'm just wondering what peoples favorite drinks are (with recipes).

One of my favorites is just a gin and tonic with a squirt or two of lime. That's a tasty drink. Another we've stumbled on is a Soco Manhattan. Full strength is a little much for me (unless I'm planning on getting drunk) so I cut everything in half and it makes a dang good drink.

soco manhattan:

4 shots Southern Comfort

1 shot Sweet Vermouth

1/2 shot juice from the mariscino (sp) jar

a cherry or two

If you want to take down the bite/burn a little bit you can ad a splash of OJ, like I do. It's real sweet, but it's real good.

Maybe I'll stumble upon another favorite.

2 parts 100% blue agave Tequila (avoid 1800 and Sauza)

1 part orange liquer (Gran Gala or Grand Marnier)

4 parts Margarita mix

1 to 2 parts OJ (fresh squeezed is best, from concentrate is worst)

1 part water

juice of one lime wedge

shake vigorously with ice.

I have another that uses all fresh squeezed juices, but it's a minimum 6 hour process.

That sounds good! What do you call it? The "Pama Lift"?

Add black patent, roasted barley, and crystal 20L to 1.5 gallons cold water. Crank up the heat. In the meantime, heat 1 gallon of water to 170F in a separate stainless-steel pot. When the pot with the grains in it comes to a boil, remove them (the grains) immediately. Sparge the grains with the 170F water that you heated previously. You should now have about 2.5 gallons of water/grain concoction. Bring this to a boil and then remove from the heat. Add molasses, brown sugar, dark extract, and the bakers chocolate (n.b. this is not choclate malt). Bring this to a boil. When boiling commences, add the bittering hops (Perle and E. Kent). Boil for 60 minutes total. With 15 minutes left in the boil, add Irish Moss. With 4 minutes left in the boil, add the Tettnager hop pellets. Cool to about 80F and add to fermenter. Add enough water to yield 5 gallons. Rehydrate the yeast and pitch it. That's it!

Makes about 3.5 cases...
