Title: Help me invent a vodka cocktail on the spot!
Post by: Dicey on February 08, 2018, 05:05:48 PM
I just read the agenda for tonight's meeting. I need to make up a three ingredient vodka cocktail with a cutesy name to go with a Wonderland (as in Alice) theme. Any ideas? Help!

Vodka, cranberry juice, cinnamon hearts: call it a Queen of Hearts
(perhaps the taste will be appropriately nasty?)

Vodka, carrot juice, a stick of celery: the White Rabbit

Vodka, soda water (water with bubbles, don't know if it's called the same in the US?), dash of orange juice = Tweedledum.
Vodka, soda water, dash of apple juice (or some other juice) = Tweedledee

So you'd have not one but TWO cocktails :D

ETA I don't know how the dash of juice would taste (I would normally just have vodka, soda water and a piece of fresh lime or lemon). If you have Aperol, you could do a dash of that instead for one of them.

Vodka, Mad Dog 20/20, Soda water - The Mad Hatter - you'll be feeling like him as well after 2.

Bonus points if you can find Absolut Kurant vodka, which matches well with cheap wine (source = drank a lot in college)

"The Redaqueene."

Vodka
Grenadine
Redpop

The more you drink, the more you will remain in the same spot (to avoid falling down drunk).

Holy Cow! You guys are awesome!

At the meeting tonight, they gave us more time to plan, so keep 'em coming. So far my favorite idea is Tweedledum and Tweedledee! I think names and combinations could be mixed and matched, so keep throwing shit out there and let's see if we can concoct something that sticks!

Thank you!!!!!!
