Vodka (neat) and Mustard dill pickle brine…you take a shot of vodka and follow it up with a shot of the brine that those little pickled cucumbers go in (also with mustard seeds) for some reason this is really nice! I had it in St Petersbourgh in a restaraunt and its was delicious although just drinking pickle brine would be rank (also haven’t tried it since with english pickle brine). I assume that this thread was to discover other interesting alcoholic concoctions that are made from otherwise horrible ingredients? If i’m wrong and it was simply a way of giving respect to the G & T then fairplay, they are nice aren’t they? - i’ll take Mangetouts recipe and add a mozzarella, fig, prosciutto and honey salad as well.
We used to make Screwdrivers with 3 parts vodka for every one part orange juice. We renamed this drink to a Sledgehammer. I will be dating myself with this one, but we also would have Wappa Dew parties. To have a Wappa Dew party, get a brand new steel garbage can, set it on a table near the entrance to the party. Everyone that comes to the party must bring at least one bottle of booze (any kind will do). When they enter the door they must empty the bottle into the garbage can to add their donation. Then the Wappa Dew monitor scoops them out a cup for their drinking pleasure. The Wappa Dew monitor’s job was to make sure the Wappa Dew stays reasonably iced down and that no one throws any pills into the punch that aren’t stimulants or psychedelics.
jjimm: anybody that ever turned 21 knows THAT one!
We also had Evermelon. Take a 250ml bottle of everclear and a medium sized watermelon, take out a triangle shaped plug of watermelon on one end, poke some holes in the exposed meat and pour in the bottle. Replace the plug, seal with duct-tape. Referigerate for 2 or 3 days, rotating every 12 hours or so.
It’s a great party food, and woe to the poor schmuck that makes a faux pas at the party. They get to eat the plug. (Which by now has been leeched white, and the rind is about as soft as the meat.)
Everclear is the name of the grain alcohol mixer sold in the US that is 190-proof (95% alcohol). It’s fun stuff, has a warning right on the label that it is poisonous taken unmixed. I don’t know of anything else like it, but I am not a drinker (is there?).
