Cocktails: Part 2

When I am cooking in Montisi for Gail's group, Brad is happy to take on bartender duties. Last Sunday, Brad and I created some cocktails with our friends in mind.

The "Great Escape":
1/2 ounce Amaretto
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce orange juice
Fill glass with Prosecco


How about a "Bella Bugalu"? Fun and "slightly twisted"!

1 oz. Grand Marnier or other orange liquore
1 oz. cranberry juice
fill glass with prosecco and twist of orange


Jerry was more of a challenge. I know he likes rum and gin. Brad decided since we would be in Italy, Campari would be in order. So.......... "Le DeQuetteville":

Dash of gin (or vodka)
2 dashes Campari
Top with 5 oz. of Prosecco. Twist a mint leaf and discard. Garnish with a twist of orange and lemon.


Next he made a "Gail Flirtini", so she will have an excuse if she is "over served".
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1.2 oz vodka
1 oz. pineapple juice
3 oz prosecco


Brad tried to make me a "Palmabellatini" using my usual Pinot Grigio. He combined an oz. of peach schnapps, and oz of pomegranate juice, and 4 oz. of wine. It was disgusting! I'll stick with the two I posted yesterday.


FInally, Brad came up with a drink for himself. He is a bourbon guy. He tried citron vodka, bourbon and prosecco with a squueze of lemon, for a "Brad Did It". He actually liked it!

Palma, I just wet my pants laughing!!!!!!

I'm sure you'll think of a drink for that....


What an interesting experiment.....I must say, Le DeQuetteville does look quite good! But I'm still drooling over the looks of yesterday's Lemon Drop. Yum! Anything with lemon has to be good.

Barb Cabot:

This is hysterically funny! I bet you two were rolling on the floor laughing as you were creating these drinks. Too cute! Thanks for the belly-ache too much fun laugh!

That is hilarious!
So mine is slightly twisted, and Gail is a flirtini.
OH~ we are in such trouble!!

Paul is sad at the lack of the Paultini. We shall have to work on that! LOL


Poor Paul and John and Holly didn't get a cocktail, but assure him I have special treats for him that will come from the kitchen, if not the bar.

Palma - don't you worry. He has settled down! LOL Just being away from work is treat enough for him.

Oh my gosh....sounds like a fun time is in order!


Where can I get me some of those drink stirrers?
