    Anyone have a recipes for mixed drinks (alcoholic)?

    I like pina coladas, though only rarely at a simcha. You need cream of coconut, rum, and pineapple juice to make it. The recipe probably would be on the cream of coconut can.

    Dare to drink this one:

    “Chemical Ali”

    Fill a large glass with ice and add the following:

    100 mls absinthe (Pernod absinthe 68% is kosher and so are a couple of others)

    50 mls rum

    50 mls triple sec

    50 mls Drambuie (or Benedictine if you hold by it)

    Sprite to fill glass

    See you next Purim :).

    How about Advocat & Chocolate Liqueur? Really delicious…

    Just for interest is it not a bit of a random time of year to ask about alcohol mixes??? 🙂

    Here’s an easy one for the winter:

    1 shot of Irish Whiskey

    1 teaspoon of lemon/lime juice

    2 teaspoons sugar

    6 cloves

    4 shots of hot water

    Add the water last; the other ingredients should be stirred together before adding water.

    Serve in an old fashioned glass – it looks like tea, tastes like tea, but has a nice zing.

    white russian:

    4 oz milk/cream

    bourbon and amaretto. adjust amounts to your liking but the amaretto makes it sweet and takes away the sting.

    take one drop of Glen Garioch, 1958

    put it in a large tall glass

    swirl it around for a while until most of the drop evaporates

    then fill the glass with fresh-brewed iced tea, ice, preferred sweetener, and freshly squeezed lemon.

    I’m not sure. If you can’t find kosher Kahlua, just use the Godiva which I know has a hechsher. It’s delicious either way. Personally I like the milk chocolate flavor but it comes in several varieties.

    Is Frangelico kosher these days? That would sub nicely for the kahlua, I would think.If you use Godiva liquor make sure it is not milchig, if you are eating a fleishig meal. I think that the white chocolate and milk chocolate varieties are dairy.

    re Kahlua: The rumor you may be referring to is that if you buy it directly from Mexico it is kosher, and that the only problem is the lack of kashrus at the US bottling plant. Whether or not this was true at one time, IT IS NOT TRUE now. You can call a kashrus agency to confirm this/discuss the rumor. Kahlua is history (to the kosher market).

    squeak: At least this time the line isnt too bad!

    Which reminds me of the (true) story:

    Two guys were retiring from their Company. One was semi-frum and the other Asian. The Company planned a retirement party for them. The party was not going to be Kosher (food). The semi-frum guy invited his buddies, including a certain frum Yid. He told him that he was sorry but could’nt come since it wasn’t Kosher. The retiree said, nu come and don’t eat.

    Well the party came and went. The frum guy of course was a no-show. After the party the 2 retirees bumped into the frum guy. So the semi-frum guy asked him why didn’t you come? So the frum guy said ”Morris said I can’t come.” Morris? Morris, who? asked the Asian. ”Morris Eyin” said the Yid.

    The semi-frum guy, red in the face, shlepped the Asian away (who still had no idea who this Morris Eyin was), without another word.

    Emesdika maaisa!

    I remember this thread and I loved this thread…except for the fact that my recipes were banished to cyberhell.

    Oomis (from 7 months ago), Frangelico is Kosher, (I just checked my bottle, it has an OU on the back) but it’s hazelnut, not chocolate so it can’t replace Kahlua.

    Godiva chocolate liquor with Frangelico hazelnut liquor and vodka over ice, “shaken, not stirred!” (raio: 2-1-2)…yum yum.

    Apple and Eve’s Mango Passion 100% juice and vodka (equal amounts) with a splash of Triple Sec…yum.

    Kilobear, my brothers found that in Israel and brought it home with them. They actually drink it when they’re really in a nutty mood.

    Drinking age in EY is 18 I believe. When I was there at that time I was 17 and became 18 but it was not enforced by police; it was only expulsion from my ulpan program that kept me from buying the stuff. I heard that especially because of the influx of immigrants from this vodka soaked region that the drinking law now is enforced, but really I don’t know.

    Cholent, that elderly Yid was a real person, Reb Meir Itkin AH, who lived to be – 96. He passed away 2 summers ago in Crown Heights and had been known to drink 96 even during the war years in the Soviet Union.

    I once had quite a few shots of it at a simcha and for some reason my face turned red. I went out to get some air and surprisingly returned, looking and feeling much better. My explanation – that 4% of water is not filtered and my skin is very sensitive :).

    Here in Ukraine it is sold only at the pharmacy, to make sure proper tax is collected. The amounts that the pharmacies keep on hand make it so obvious that it is being sold for drinking purposes. Due to its small red bottle cap, ‘Pharmasept’ is known as ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Sadly because of the economic situation here I see more and more bottles of it discarded as litter.

    That is the standard term for it – I only write 96 to save time and because there are those on this thread who have no connection with Yiddish. Russian Chassidim also call it spirt, which is the standard Russian word for the stuff.

    For instance, at times someone has pointed to me and said: “Er macht kiddush mit spirt”. Usually I do it only during Tishrei, on parshas Tzav due to the gematriya, and on the Shabbos before my bday.

    How about beer? I wanted to have something with my seuda for Gimmel Tammuz, and it is too hot for wine or hard stuff so I bought and drank a pint bottle of a local beer with a 10% alcohol content, more than some of the kiddush wines out there these days. Let’s put it this way – I am in no condition to walk, let alone to drive, right now but a few glasses of water and it will pass.

    Usually if I really want to enjoy beer I buy Guinness stout, with or without the widget. 100% kosher, I think supervised by the Federation but I am not sure. As far as anything else is concerned, the non-alcoholic beers taste better and that is what I drink if I just want a beer to cool off in the summer. I think we have Staropramen and Tuborg at kiddush in shul and both are OK but nothing special.

  • #908459

    Rowan’s Creek – very creamy. Noah’s Mills – also an excellent bourbon. The gadlus of bourbon is that for 40-50 bucks – you can buy a very respectable bottle. For even 25-30 – you still can buy a geshmake bottle: Old Weller or Corner’s Creek.

    My tipple is a freezing cold vodka on the rocks but I have yet to find one that’s really smooth and believe me I’ve tried a lot.

    Also like Gin & Tonic with lemon and ice and a good cognac all served in the appropriate glasses of course!

    That said, I do enjoy a beer such a St Miguel and I have no idea why it tastes better fom the bottle or in a tall glass

    Of course all drinks ‘taste’ different depending on where and with whom you’re drinking such a bar, a simcha, the californian sunshine, Israel, Europe or wherever

    Business Week online edition has a rating of vodkas. Am reading it now :).

    Is any Ukrainian vodka (horilka) sold in the US or UK or EY? Nemiroff is certified OU; I don’t know which varieties are sold abroad but their semi-premium line is quite good, better than the far more costly Russkiy Standard. Their Lex premium brand has an unusual taste (from mint or something) which I do not like, and their lower priced black label horilka is fine when kept in the freezer. Their pepper and honey flavored (OU as well) horilka is a high sugar content, easy to drink elixir best consumed on Purim.

    Speaking of which – though it may need a thread of its own – what is everyone’s favorite wine?

    Non mevushal – just about any vintage of Yarden Merlot or Dalton Merlot or Dalton Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Mevushal – Kindzmarauli from Georgia. Witnesses have seen me make kiddush on a three liter vase of same on Shmini Atzeres night :). I drink down about 1.75 l and give out the rest. Eating and dancing allow me to sober up very quickly.

  • #908479

    LOL that was an error. My vase, jokingly referred to as an aquarium, holds three bottles (2.25L), not three litres, so what I drink amounts to 1.2 litres and not 1.75 litres. Not much harder than drinking down the largest size fountain soda sold at any 13th Ave fast food place :).

  • #908481

    A600KiloBear – that’s still pretty impressive if you drink it at one shot!

    An eitza tovah that can’t be stressed enough is that when you drink on Purim or Simchas Torah – always match each cup of wine or shot of “bronfin” with a cup of water. Most people who get sick or naseous – are dehydrated. If you drink water, you’ll feel much better & won’t get sick.

  • #908483

    A600KiloBear – I have an interesting question for you. You have mentioned earlier that you are a Lubavitcher Chossid. I was always curious what vodka Lubavitcher Chassidim prefer at farbrengens?

  • #908484

    We are a sweet wine family. I particularly like the Rashi Cream Pink Concord. I happen to also like semi-dry wines, but as my mother is not a fan of them and my brother is too young for alcohol, we only have the sweet kind unless a Shabbos guest brings a bottle.

  • #908486

    I forgot mention another favorite of mine – Gentleman’s Jack. Very geshmak. Also, there’s a Silver Select by Jack Daniel’s which I have only found at Duty Free shops which is excellent. A600KiloBear – have you ever had it?

    Traditionally Lubavitchers use Smirnoff red label because that was what was around when the Rebbe was with us.

    However, because of so many young people going to Russia on shlichus, Russkiy Standart is seen in Crown Heights and Kfar Chabad now, and Grey Goose has its fans, mostly in trendy Chabad House communities such as those in California.

    A600KiloBear – there’s an old machlokes that has been going on for years & I wanted to hear your opinion: when you pour a beer – do you pour it against the side of the mug to avoid getting a “head” or does the beer have a better “taam” with the “head”?

    A beer is supposed to have a head, but of a controlled size. The correct way to pour a beer is against the glass for the first 75% of the way up and then directly for the next 10%-15%, giving a slight head. Adjust based on personal preference.

    A beer is supposed to have a head, but of a controlled size. The correct way to pour a beer is against the glass for the first 75% of the way up and then directly for the next 10%-15%, giving a slight head. Adjust based on personal preference.
