Cocktails and more....

Now dont get me wrong...its not that i am a alcoholic or something like that..i am just an occasional drinker. I mostly have couple of drinks during an outing with friends or at a family function.

Its just at a recent outing to one of suburban nightclub..i noticed many cocktail drinks on the menu list that i had never heard or had before. But the most amusing factor were the names given to these drinks. I know this is not new but these new names and drinks take simple cocktail drink to a completely new level. Those days of names like Bloody Mary, Long Island Ice Tea are definately gone...

Now obviously the name does have some sort of a relationship with drink. It could be based on the ingredients used or simply based on the final look and feel of the drink.

Sample these -

1. Sex on the Beach (Very famous) : Peach Schnapps + Vodka + cranberry Juice + Orange Juice + Pineapple juice.

2. Death Certificate : Kahlua + Bacardi Rum + Vanilla Ice Cream + Tobassco Sauce

3. Bloody Lip : Cherry Liqueur + Vodka

4. Mojito : Rum + Club Soda + Ginger Ale + Lime + Mint + Sugar Syrup

5. Brain Tumor : Bailey + Peach Schnapps + Grenadine

6. Stock Market Crash : Rum + Goldschagar + Coca Cola

7. Horny Monkey : Banana Liqueur + Sambuka Black

8. Broken Heart : Grenadine + Orange Juice + Vodka + Chamboard

9. Hot and Spicy Men : Jack Daniels + Jim Beam + Rum + Schnapps + Dr. Pepper

10. Punch in the Stomach : Hawaiian Punch + Sprite + Pineapple Juice

One question that comes to mind :

Do people buy these drinks cause they like the mixeses in it or just cause the name sounds saucy & funny ?

PS : Another funny name cocktail that i use to have usually in Sydney was called QF (Quick Fuck) made of Bailey + Kahlua + Melon Liqueur. Weird....you should try it out...

  1. reading me makes me thirsty!

    my fav is Long Island Iced Tea, and the way it is made in NYC. Here they put real iced tea, all over its coke, and never the same.

    What is interesting in the sexual connotations of the various names !!
