Your love for cocktails is incomplete if you have not tried these 5 drinks! Yes, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of classic cocktails. But a few have special staying power. Here are top 5 must have drinks:
#1: Brain Haemorrhage
1oz (30 ml) Peach Schnapps, 3/4oz (20ml) Bailey’s Irish Cream Grenadine. Pour the Peach Schnapps into a shot glass, Slowly pour the Bailey’s into the middle, Gently add a few drops of Grenadine. **For an Alien Brain Haemorrhage, add a few drops of Blue Curacao along with the Grenadine to create an eerie blue, purple and red fluid to go along with your curdled brains.
#2: Girl Scout Cookie
1/2 oz. Kahlua, 1/2 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream, 1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps. Rim the glass with Chocolate Sprinkles or a flavoured sugar of your choice, Pour the alcohol in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, Shake until well mixed and strain into a tall shot glass.
#3: Bomb Pop Shots
1/3 oz. Sprite, 1/3 oz. lemon vodka, 2/3 oz. blue curacao, 2/3 oz. grenadine, Ice. Shake the Sprite and Vodka with the ice to chill it, Strain into shot glass, Using a spoon, gently layer the Blue Curacao over the vodka, Tilt the glass slightly and pour the grenadine down the side so it layers on the bottom.
1/2 oz. Kahlua, 1/2 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream, 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier (you can also use Amaretto), Splash of Bacardi 151 (Optional). In a shot glass, layer Kahlua, Bailey’s, then Grand Marnier with the back of a spoon carefully as to not let the layers mix. For an added kick, layer a few drops of Bacardi 151 over the top layer with a spoon. CAREFULLY light the top layer on fire for a few seconds with a match. IMPORTANT: Be sure to gently put out the flame before even moving the glass and especially before consuming the shot!
