How to Stock a Home Bar

Posted by Tiki Denny on Aug 31, 2011 in Drinks

Excellent advice on how to stock your bar. I have bunches of bottles of liquour I have never touched that I bought because I thought they would be cool. There’s no point. Unless the bottle is shaped like a crystal skull. Akroyd totally should have done an Indiana Jones cross-promotion.

Tiki Bar Inventory

Posted by Tiki Denny on Jun 20, 2011 in Drinks

Yesterday I was playing with a shopping list app on my Android Phone and decided to try and scan the bar-codes of my bar stock. I had pretty good luck, over 75% of the scans worked, though a couple came back weird, mostly listed as skins for Blackberry phones?

So here is a running inventory of our bar. I didn’t realize how many different types of rum we have, pretty exciting. And I also discovered that my bottle shelving is half the size it needs to be!

The Vodka Quickie

Posted by Tiki Denny on Jan 18, 2011 in Drinks
Vodka QuickieSunday night I created a new drink, if you can call it that.  We picked up a bottle of Hpnotiq liqueur in a gift pack over the holidays, and opened it up this weekend.  We mixed up a couple drinks from the recipe card with it, and then I decided to try and pair it with the X Rated Fusion liqueur, because what better to mix a vodka liqueur with, than another vodka liqueur?
The result was pretty satisfying, both in taste an appearance.  After shaking, it gets a purple cotton candy like color that I couldn’t do justice to in the picture (how not to photograph food, step one…)  The fruity flavorings pair nicely.  I guess you could consider this a chick drink, but a couple of them are pretty potent.

The Vodka Quickie

  • 1 oz Hpnotiq liqueur
  • 1 oz X-Rated Fusion liquer

shake with ice and strain into a glass

This Week’s Drink: The Deep Throat

Posted by Tiki Denny on Jan 12, 2010 in Drinks

Who comes up with these names?

A deep throat is served in a shot glass and consists of:

  • 1/2 oz Kahlua
  • 1/2 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1/2 oz whipped cream

Pour Kahlua into the shot glass, followed by the Irish Cream.  If you want to get fancy, pour the Irish Cream over the back of a spoon to make it float on top.  Add whipped cream.

This drink is deceptively sweet, and even though it doesn’t seem like a lot, will sneak up on you.

Drink of the Week: 1st Edition

Posted by Tiki Denny on Jan 5, 2010 in Drinks

I’m going to start trying to post a drink of the week, every week.  We’ll see how that goes.  They aren’t all going to be Tiki drinks, just drinks enjoyed in the Tiki Bar.  For our first drink, it’s the one we’ve enjoyed the most lately:  The Red Headed Slut.  Not a very flattering name, but a great drink.  If all you have heard are bad things about Jagermeister, don’t be scared, the peach schnapps and cranberry juice blend with it very well.

  • 1 oz peach schnapps
  • 1 oz Jagermeister
  • cranberry juice

Mix in a rocks glass.  Enjoy.
