CharlieMac Saturday Drink Specials
Ready for another evening of not wanting to go to a bar, but still want to get a drink? Well your local liquor store can help you with that. In fact, here are some ideas for homemade drinks that you may find compelling enough to give a try...or eight tries.
Crazy Cocktail (original source)
2 oz coconut rum (Malibu)
1 ½ oz Raspberry Pucker Schnapps
1 ½ oz Melon Liqueur

Perhaps, crazy isn't the way you want to go...or maybe it is. Are you in the mood for a crazy hot beverage? I can't promise you'll find this recipe crazy hot, but it does have a good spiciness to it. With that in mind, I present to you the...
Sweaty Hipster (original source)
2 oz Hornitos Reposado Tequila
1 oz O3 Orange Liqueur
1 oz fresh lime juice
Dash of grapefruit bitters
1 oz serrano/mint-infused simple syrup
Garnish: chili salt for the rim and Serrano chili pepper slices
First off, rim your glass with the chili salt. Then combine the liquid ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake the contents well until they are mixed, then strain to the rimmed glass. Finally, garnish your concoction with the serrano chili pepper slices.
And who can go wrong with a drink titled like this next recipe?
Honky Tonk Badonkadonk (original source)
1 1⁄2 oz Cointreau liqueur
1⁄2 oz calvados
1 oz vanilla vodka
1 dash (1/8 tsp) cinnamon
Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake well then strain into a glass. Preferably martini, but I doubt everyone has a martini glass just sitting in the cabinet waiting to be used. I don’t have any so that right there means not everyone has one, or am I just the odd one out?
They nonalcoholic ingredients could be found at your local grocery store if you can't find them at the liquor store. Townsquare Media and KIXS 108 do not condone underage drinking and encourage you to drink responsibly. Have a safe and fun weekend!
