I made a ton of fresh orgeat yesterday (so easy, so good). I'm going to a dinner party tonight, and I want to try and make this tiki drink called the Scallywag (it's shown on this page) that I had at Featherweight in Brooklyn. It's delicious. Unfortunately, I do not know the proportions and the internet is not helpful so far. Can you help me with an educated guess?

I know it has scotch, smith and cross, orgeat, pineapple juice, lime juice, and angostura bitters. Should I add simple? I am thinking not, but maybe I'm wrong.

This is my best guess at the proportions:

  • 1oz scotch
  • 1oz Smith and Cross
  • 3/4 oz lime
  • 3/4 oz pineapple
  • 1/4 oz orgeat
  • 2 dashes angostura

Does this look reasonable? The drink was not super spirit-forward, but still fairly strong. I'd love any feedback. :)

Reddit - Mixology by /u/streblo99 - 2d ago

Hi everyone! So I've just started to move on from beer and the basic strong spirit with a mixer to something a little bit fancier. So far I've made a black Russian, screwdriver (very complex I know...) And most recently a blue lagoon which has taken the place of my new favourite drink.

On a whim I decided I wanted to start learning and making cocktails so I ordered a largeish ice cube tray and a Boston style Saker....my first attempt at a black Russian ended with it all over my kitchen cause I didn't know how to shake properly, I've looked up a guide since.

my question is what tools do you consider essential? Like I said I have a Boston mixer and recently bought one of those egg timer looking things that tell you measurements, but is their anything else I absolutely need? Like a mixing stick or strainer? Maybe even a few more ice cube trays so I don't sadly end the night with no ice in my drinks? Also any other drink recipes based on vodka would be greatly appreciated since vodka is my favourite alcohol.

Hey, I'm very new to mixology and with very minimal knowledge on the subject but i have given myself this "challenge." So right now im trying to create some aestheticly pleasing drinks that would impress a (legal)younger audience and I really would like some help brainstorming. The plan that I had was a variant of the aviation with a much deeper blue and some glitter on top as a type of starry night. Here i basically have two questions; is there a way, without ruining the drink to make it more opaque while still only using the voilet or a similar blue/purple liquor as coloring? and perhaps make it darker aswell so as to create more of a night sky. And do any of you have reccomendations on how to mix up the recipie a bit so that it is easier to drink as a lot of people i know don't really enjoy gin or dry cocktails very much? I would really love any feedback, tips or new ideas as I really would like to learn more about this subject and I really want a pretty looking drink!

I bought the mini “shooter” bottles of those 2 vodkas and I don’t know what drink(s) I can make with them. Turned 21 July 8 so I’m wanting to learn what I like.

Just moved into a place with a big rosemary bush, so naturally I had to do some alchemy. What are your favorite drinks using the herb, or what would you try? Here's my off-the-cuff invention.

The "Evil" by Interpol.

1.5 oz gin (I used tanq)

.5 oz limoncello of choice

.75 oz lemon juice

1 sprig of fresh rosemary

SHAKE

Pour over ice and top with tonic. Garnish with a tall sprig of rosemary.

Turned out pretty tasty and wonderfully floral. Taking a whiff while you sip is an experience. What would you change?

I personally prefer Sailor Jerry for R&C; the spices they use work so beautifully with the flavorings in Coke. I just wanna know if anyone with a more refined palate than mine can give any suggestions as to what might be better. Also, lime or no lime? Sometimes people add nutmeg, I hear. Anything one should add on top for extra flavor?

I have plenty of scotches and blended whiskeys but no bitters what so ever. I needed to make a drink to end my day of work and didn’t want to resort to tequila or vodka to cool down. I just made a simple whiskey sour with a tiny twist. Strawberry. I made a strawberry infused simple syrup by adding a single sliced strawberry to the syrup after it began to simmer, and letting the syrup cool with the strawberry suspensed. Used .5 oz of the mixture, .75 oz lemon juice and 2 oz. dewars blended 12 year whiskey. Shook and served in a stemless wine glass with two slices of strawberry and a single basil leaf suspended to garnish. It’s delicious, sweet and ultra refreshing. The basil adds a nice little spice characteristic that actually warms up the drink. But yeah that’s my story. Let me know what I can do to make it better or if I should start from scratch.
