Booze

I used to drink a lot. I was a private drink mixer for people & bars… Without the circus act… Nothing fancy, just a suitable means for a minimum income. Here’s a collection of some recipes that I’ve assembled during my great alcoholic career… Self-invented Martini and cocktail recipes.

So…

Booze

Some of the ingredients I recommend for mixing are as follows…

Cinzano Vermouths – These are my favorite, especially Vermouth Rosso (which I often use in martinis instead of the classic Vermouth Bianco or Dry Vermouths… or just alone over ice).

Monin Syrups – Monin Syrups are what got me into mixing drinks. Monin boast to be world champion in natural high-quality syrups. With every flavor imaginable, they make a yummy addition to sweeten your hot-chocolate, coffee, or martini with. One flavor literally seems better than the other, and because they are all natural they leave no funky chemical aftertaste. I can’t imagine a martini without them, and even use them for spicing up sweet treats like chocolate mousse.

Cachaca – Cachaca is from Brazil. It’s a very “flexible” drink as it can be used to spike any type of beverage (and food) due to its unobtrusive sweet-ish/coconut like flavor. Its something like a combination of “the best of” rum, vodka, and gin. It mixes exceptionally well with fruity drinks, and makes an excellent addition to sweet beverages like hot-chocolate. It even serves well in spiking mousse’s, cakes, and ice creams. I find it to be a very “flexible” drink, and often use it as a substitute for gin or vodka in martinis (especially the candy flavored ones) because the taste (in my opinion) is so pleasantly unique.
Amaro Ramazzotti – Amaro Ramazzotti touts a rich combination of herbs and spices ranging from orange peel to cinnamon, and coriander. Because of its sweet and rich taste its ideal for spiking various drinks and sweets with (like coffee, creams, mousses, and cakes.).

Sambuca Luxardo – Is something like an anise flavored infusion, and tastes kinda cool in beer… you can light things on fire with it…
