CharlieMac Saturday Drink Specials
Its the Weekend! Time! To! Party!
Now the question is: "Do I go out or stay at home to party?" You don't have to go out to a bar to have a good time and a drink. You are more than capable of spending time at home and having a party with friends and family. Besides, when's the last time you went to a bar and watched Netflix on the TV? Some of you can just do that in the relaxing surroundings of your own home to watch Netflix (or go to a family member or friends house) and have a drink. Here are a few drinks that are easy to make and perfect for an evening at home...
Lavender & Lemon Homegrown Cocktail (original source)
1 ½ oz Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin
½ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¼ oz Lavender Simple Syrup
Garnish – Lemon Wheel, Lavender Sprig
Combine the Gin, Lemon Juice, and Lavender Simple Syrup into a shaker with ice and shake well. Then strain into a glass and garnish with the (by garnish, I mean put in the drink) the Lemon Wheel and Lavender Sprig.
The Three & Out (original source)
3 oz Vodka
3 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 ½ oz Honey
1 dried Chile pepper (cut in half)
1 bottle Pilsner Beer
Garnish – Chile Pepper, Lemon Wedge
Combine the Vodka, Lemon Juice, Honey and Pepper into a shaker with no ice. Stir the ingredients together until the honey has been dissolved. Then add the ice and shake well. Strain the mixture into a tall glass (or large enough for the mixture and beer) and top off with the Pilsner Beer. Garnish with the Pepper slices and Lemon Wedge.
(How is it gone?! It was just a sip!)
