Holiday drink recipes for Nan

by Steve, December 20th, 2008

A couple variations on kid favorites for the grown-ups for Nan who was expecting drink recipes from Wacky Mommy.

Snow Snake

  • Hot cocoa
  • Peppermint Schnapps
  • Whipped cream
  • Creme de menthe

Add a shot of schnapps to a cup of hot cocoa. Top with a mountain of whipped cream. Drizzle a line of creme de menthe around the whipped cream (that’s the snake). Sip carefully and keep away from the kids!

Shirley Tavern

The working title for this has been “Dirty Shirley”, which I like for the assonance/alliteration (what do you call it when it’s both?) but it’s not dirty like a martini.

  • Vodka
  • Grenadine
  • 7-up
  • Ice
  • Maraschino cherry

Fill a tall glass with ice. Add a splash of grenadine, a shot (or more) of vodka, top of with 7-up and garnish with a cherry. Serve to your lovely wife and pour a shot of vodka on the rocks for yourself (I’m partial to Grey Goose.)

The snow so far

by Steve, December 20th, 2008

We got another inch or so last night, with the big blast still pending… 6-10″ predicted for the valley floor, over a foot for the gorge (and tons more for the mountains).
