OK, so it's not Halloween, but... [12 Jan 2010|07:34pm]

[ mood | morbid? ]

What are some fun, gross shots?

Here's two:

Dead Canary
3/4 oz light rum
3/4 oz banana liqueur
splash pulpy oj
splash pineapple

Shake ingredients over ice until very frosty. Sink 1/4 oz grenadine to the bottom of the glass.

Bloody Brains
1 Shot Peach Schnapps, Float 1/4 oz. Bailey's Irish Creme for the brains, Drip 1/8 oz grenadine directly into Bailey's, the result is a disgusting curdled mess that is peachy and fantastic, aside from the mucus-like "brains."

Mojito questions [26 Apr 2008|11:01am]

[ mood | confused ]

 Help!  I have a bartending gig tonight, and I've been told mojitos are on the menu.  It's been awhile since I've made them and I'm kind of nervous.  Furthermore, the client told me he went out and bought extra mint julep.  How do you make a mojito using this stuff (is this in place of the mint leaves?)

Barback jobs [21 Jun 2007|04:48pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I'd like to pick anyone's brain out there...

A friend of mine is looking for a job (he's a computer programmer whose company is going kaput), so he's looking for some (temp) work to make some extra cash.  How much experience does one need to be a barback (in NYC) ?  He has a flex schedule...

Bartending School [12 Jun 2007|08:25pm]

So I want to go to bartending school, however living in Utah my options are extremely small.  The nearest school I can find is in Las Vegas, however a problem I can see, besides distance, is that the liquor laws in Utah are painful, and very different from Nevada.  So a school in Nevada may not be very helpful for working in Utah.  
Any suggestions?

Also, what do you think of online courses?  Are they effective at all, and are they even worth it?

*I don't know if this post is okay, if not I wont be hurt if it's deleted :).

Recipes! [12 Jun 2007|04:16am]

[ mood | drained ]

I made this one up for St. Patty's day, everyone seems to love it.

This is the recipe for the shot, if you make it as a drink, serve chilled in a martini glass.

"The Lucky Charm"
1/2 oz. gin (well is fine)
1/2 oz. sour apple pucker
1/4 oz. blue curacao
1/4 oz. midori (or melon liquere)
1/2 oz. orange juice

shake, strain.

If done correctly, it's a brilliant shade of neon green and tastes like a Charms Blow-Pop. My co-worker came up with the name, and it's delicious, so it's become quite a local favorite in our bar even though we're a high volume store.

Make it famous!

"Sex With a Virgin" (my version of a sex with an alligator.)
1/2 oz. spiced rum (Captain)
1/2 oz. strawberry schnapps
1/2 oz. orange juice
shake, strain.
sink 1/2 oz. razzmatazz
float 1/2 oz. Jager

In a "Sex With an Alligator," you replace the middle with vodka, melon and oj. (Like a melon ball.)

OK I'm done. Happy cocktailing!

[ mood | awake ]

Cheers! Just joined and thought i'd say hi. I've been bartending for a few months now and absolutely love it. Honestly I don't dread going to work everyday which is nice. I'm at a local place right now that isn't super busy so its a nice way to ease into it I suppose. Anyways, i noticed people posting recipes on here so i'll do two of my best sellers....

Caramel Apple:
1 oz Buttershots
1 oz Sour apple pucker

Chill and shoot...

Werthers Original:
1 oz Buttershots
1 oz Crown Royal

They're both pretty sweet but are really nice overall and ppl never complain.

TGIFriday's Annual Bar Flair Competition [15 Sep 2005|01:04pm]

[ mood | tired as hell ]

On Sunday, food, drink, and pouring tests were taken, and whether or not my co-workers failed certain parts on purpose so they wouldn't have to participate in Regionals, doesn't matter, I won, and that's cool.

Yay flair!

(The most expensive Bombay Sapphire and Tonic I've ever served.)

hey sleepy community. i joined you. lets be a party.

so i just got a bartending job 6 weeks ago or so, with no experience at all. but i'm getting there! and i made up my first drink, which is an important step, i suspect. tell me if this is really called something else--

2 parts chocolate liquer
2 parts frangelico
1 part baileys
a tiny splash of raspberry liquer

you gotta shake it extra hard so it gets ice-y. i called it a dunkin' donuts, because it tastes just like a coolata. (know it? yes?)

Virgin Entry!

Welcome all to the intoxicology community! This site is for bar regulars and restaurant/bar employees, sharing bar stories and drink recipes, or anything alcohol-related. This is my first attempt at a community, so I apologize if it sucks ass.

Though I'm the only Casey known to me to ever work at the same job at the same time, in the work place I've always gone by "Casey P." (Hi! Nice to meet you!) I'm 22 years old and I have been bartending at TGI Fridays in Hanover, Maryland for nine months.
I love working at Friday's as a bartender, because if you'll remember that movie Cocktail with Tom Cruise, flair mostly originated in TGI Friday's bars. (Yes, when he was wandering the streets of Manhattan after all of his interviews-gone-bad he stumbled across a corner bar, and as he’s walking in, you see the red and white stripes and the gold “T.G.I. Friday’s” on the awning.) I remember seeing this movie when I was like ten and thinking “ooh I wanna do that someday” but I never knew that life would actually pull me in that direction eleven years or so later. Here I am, and I’m getting good at bar flair so watch out!

I was never much of a drinker because the burn and the taste of most liquor never appeased me, but since becoming a bartender, I’ve come to terms with mixology (intoxicology!!) and I know how to make shit taste good. :)
If you are in the Arundel Mills area and you mention this page and want to sample these drinks, there’s a free one waiting for you. They are drinks I’ve invented, with the best liqueur ever invented: the peach schnapps.

“K C Peach:”
½ oz. Gin
½ oz. Vodka
½ oz. Rum
¾ oz. Peach Schapps
3 oz. Sweet and Sour
Shake with ice and strain over ice and 1 oz. Cranberry Juice
(It’s a layered cocktail, it looks fucking awesome.)

The “Bi-sexual:”
1 oz. Jamesons Irish Whiskey
1 oz. Peach Schnapps
4 oz. Sweet and Sour

If you don’t like peach schnapps, then fuck you.

---In Memory---
I feel it’s my duty to mention my dear childhood friend Courtney Hayes. The first time I ever took a shot of alcohol was when I was 14, freshman year of high school, sleeping over her house after she moved out of the neighborhood we grew up closely in. It was Goldschlager, and it was disgusting. The real mention goes to my first taste of a fuzzy navel given to me by her mother, Ms. Sharon, on the porch of 104 Kent Road across the street and I’ve since fallen in love with peach schnapps. Sharon Hayes, thank you, and may you rest in peace.
