I have this thing about me, when it comes to alcohol I am pretty simple. I do not like girly frou frou drinks or anything sweet. Typically, I am good with shots. Preferably, whiskey. Tequila, if I am feeling froggy and wanna make an arrogant man feel emasculated by my tequila drinking skills versus his….But that is my own personality flaw…And another reason I am pretty sure this is my first life as a female….I admit it, I often have penis envy…or atleast I am envious of the doors that penises? peni? can open…
Point being….When it comes to mixed drinks, rum and coke is as fruity as I get. And don’t put a freaking lime on it, I didn’t order a cuba libre. GAWD
Another thing about my drinking habits, should I say I have a drinking habit? Hmm…My drinking preferences?
Beer makes me sleepy. But if I have to drink it, I better not be able to see through it.
Wine must be red.
And I typically find something I drink for a while and nothing else, until I switch.
Lately, because I was trying to get a drink that wouldn’t make me feel tooo terrible about the empty calories the Cellar Bar at the Ringler’s Annex, one of McMenamin’s magical places, introduced me to this drink. BUT i Janified it 🙂
It breaks all my rules.
It has a freaking cherry.
It has soda in it.
It has ice.
It comes in a glass that is bigger than this:
Regardless, here is my recipe:
Buvez et obtenez un bon bu!
Janified Amaretto Sour:
First get an array of delicious citrus:
I like to use 2 oranges, 2 tangerines, 4 lemons and 2 limes.
Either use a simple juicer or get all hard core like me and peel your citrus:
Then throw them in your magical centrifugal juicer:
Then you end up with this kind of deliciousness that will separate, make sure you give a good stir before you pour:
Then you wanna give a spoonful of maraschino cherry juice over your ice:
Then fill your glass 1/3 full with Amaretto of your choosing:
Then 1/3 more with your fresh delicious nutritious guilt free citrus juice:
Then top off slowly with some 7up or whatever lemon-lime soda ya got. (this mixture produces a fantastic foam like a root beer float….”It is so good” like Martha Stewart freaking good.)
Top off with a few cherries.
*The more you drink the more cherries you will want. They become a sport to spear in the bottom of your glass 😉
Stir slowly before drinking.
