Ok, I decided to get in on this. And this is what I came up with. I usually make it with pineapple juice but, since that wasn't one of the juices listed as available, this was made with a mixture of apple and orange. (Orange juice by itself was too acidic.) Anyway, in homage to '1969', it's called 'Solar Flare'...

Solar Flare
5 oz mixed apple/orange juice
1 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz Amaretto

Shake with ice, then strain into a glass. Pour just a touch of grenadine down the side.



Or don't strain it and just pour everything into a glass, then add the grenadine.

How to make a "Nasty Ba'al "

Pour milk and ice into a tumbler
Shake together 2 shots of espresso, 20ml of kahlua, 20ml of vanilla vodka and ice  in a cocktail shaker and pour on top of the milk and ice ( this will sit on top before gently seeping into the milk)
Serve with a cherry ( the Ba'al ! )

To make a "Thor's Hammered"
Mix together 20ml of Capt.Morgans spiced rum, 10ml of banana liquor together with orange and pineapple juice and ice... Serve with an orange wheel.

To make a "False God"
Pour milk and ice into a tumbler
Shake together 2 shots of espresso, ice and coconut syrup in a cocktail shaker and pour on top of the milk and ice.

To make a "Glider through the gate"
Pour 20ml of Bacardi into a highball glass with ice.
Add 10ml of frangelico and 10 ml of vodka and fill glass with Sprite
Serve with a slice of lemon

Geez, I need 32 hours per day to keep up with everything...

So here are my cocktails:

- "Blood of Sokar"

3 cl. of Bitter (Martini if aviable)
3 cl. of red vermouth (Martini or Cinzano are fine)
a spray of soda

Mix all together and serve with ice and slice of orange


- "Going off-world"

4 cl. of vodka (not flavored)
2 cl. of triple sec
2 cl. of midori
4 cl. of pineapple juice

Put all the ingredients in a shaker, shake and serve with a slice of pineapple


- "Jack and Sam" these are two shots, which can be drunk together (reccomended) or as stand alone

For Jack: 2 parts of dark chocolate cream
               3 parts of vodka (not flavored)
               1 part of milk cream

pour the vodka and chocolate cream in the shot glass and add on top the milk cream previously whipped


For Sam: 2 parts of Sambuca
               2 parts of blue curacao
               1 part of mint flavored syrup

pour the Sambuca in a shot glass, add mint syrup, and pour the blue curacao using a tea spoon upside down (pour the curacao on the upside down spoon so not to mix with the sambuca)

Hope you'll like'em!
