Naming a Series of Drinks.

There are tons of names of mixed drinks but no one seems to name a series of drinks that you drink one right after the other. Here are two suggestions.

A Menage Artois = Three Stella Artois in a row.

The Pep Boys =
1 glass of Manishevitz
1 Mojito
1 shot of Jack Daniels.

How about a "Miramax," which would be a Harvey Wallbanger and a Bob Cocktail (alternately, a Rob Roy).

And maybe you can tell the bartender to "make it German" by adding a Sidecar to the drink order.

Excellent. I'll also add a "The Five Boroughs" which is ...


Ingredients: 3/4 oz rosso vermouth
1 oz rye whiskey
2 - 3 dashes maraschino liqueur



3.0 cl Gin
1.5 cl Sweet Red Vermouth
1.0 cl Dry Vermouth
1.5 cl Orange Juice
Pour into shaker all ingredients with ice cubes, shake well. Strain in chilled cocktail or martini glass.



5.0 cl Rye or Canadian whiskey
2.0 cl Red Vermouth
1 Dash Angostura Bitter
Pour all ingredients into mixing glass with ice cubes. Stir well. Strain into chilled martini or cocktail glass. Garnish with maraschino cherry.


Staten Island Ferry

1 part Malibu Rum
1 part pineapple juice

Serve over ice in a highball glass.


Queen's Cousin

1 oz vodka
1/2 oz Grand Marnier orange liqueur
1/2 oz lime juice
2 dashes bitters
1 tsp Cointreau orange liqueur
3 oz sparkling white wine

OK the queens cousin is a stretch but I don't know of a mixed drink that is named for Queens. Actually last weekend, Suzi and I were drinking Staten Island Ferries.
