One day, while having lunch with Fireangel, I got an idea for a party where everyone sits around making experimental cocktails for each other, for no reason other than to get high really really fast. After all, I have a good variety of booze at home, and it's always fun to see what sort of cocktails I could make out of them.
Anyway, I had some rules for the 'Mental Experimental Cocktail Party". The rules were these:
1) You DO NOT make drinks for yourself.
2) Each drink MUST have AT LEAST one shot of liquor, and AT LEAST one mixer. No shooters or shots allowed.
3) If you finish your drink, you draw a name from a box at random to see who makes the next drink for you.
4) Anyone who is called out for having an empty glass or nursing a drink too long will have to take a shot from the Tray of Death (TM)
So, I had the party last Friday, and a grand total of nine people turned up; three of LL's friends, Vicky and Cris, and Deepak and his friend Junial. The rest chickened out; while FA had to go spoil her alcohol appetite the night before by getting drunk on whiskey and beer (a travesty which I have still not forgiven for until she buys me a siew yoke lunch), so she couldn't make it either. HMPH.
So, what was available? Here you go:
- Absolut Apeach
- Absolut Mandarin
- Absolut Vanilla
- Absolut Vodka
- Advocaat egg liqour
- Bacardi Apple
- Baileys Irish Cream
- Cazadores gold tequila
- Chinese rice wine
- Finlandia Cranberry
- Gordon's gin
- Green Fairy absinthe
- Jameson whiskey
- Johnnie Walker Black Label whiskey
- Kahlua coffee liqour
- Malibu Coconut flavoured rum
- Martini Bianco
- Peachtree schnapps
- Sauza Gold tequila
- Lime juice
- Orange juice
- Apple juice
- Cranberry juice
- Pinapple juice
Needless to say, we all got mightily high, but surprisingly not drunk. I guess the cocktails weren't THAT potent, or maybe it's just because all of us could REALLY drink.
Between us, we made up cocktails, some pretty good, and some really awful ones like Vicky's Advocaat + Guinness + Tequila concoction, and Junial's absinthe + Rum + Whiskey shooter he made for Deep (the one and only shooter of the night. We banned them after that one).
The Tray of Death (a tray of shotglasses filled with different sorts of liqour at random) was only used twice - once when someone forgot to refill his glass, and the other, when someone held on to his drink far too long.
It was just too bad there were so few of us, or it there have been more cocktails going around. And I wish I'd written down the drinks we made because some of them were pretty good. Oh well, there's always next time... hee hee.. HIC!
