Russian Quaalude

Russian Quaalude Cocktail has very interesting name (as for me as graduated pharmacist) and unintelligible recipe. The Quaalude – second part of “Sex, drug, rock ‘n’ roll!!!” is unique culture forming medcines. Some interesting facts about this pharmaceutical phenomenon you can read here.

I use recipe of Russian Quaalude Cocktail from Dale DeGroff.

The Russian Quaalude Cocktail (Метаквалон, он же Кваалюд)

Russian Quaalude

20 ml vodka
20 ml Kahlua
20 ml amaretto liqueur
30 ml cream
Shake and strain into a rocks glass.

Nothing special, Russian Quaalude Cocktail has sweet and creamy taste – on the line with Screaming Orgasm and Mudslide :) But on closer view Russian Quaalude (Dale DeGroff recipe) is near relation of famous White Russian (with Italian necktie) :)

Monkey Gland (revisited)

I am inspired by Darcy O`Neil post about Monkey Gland. The scan of newspaper article, detailing the drink, in this post inspired me to tasting Monkey Gland with raspberry syrup.

Actually few days ago I buy two Routin syrups – Lime and Grenadine. The Routin Grenadine is no so common grenadine. It is “Mixed berries” grenadine :) This syrup use … fruit juices (lemon, blackcurrant, strawberry, elderberry, raspberry, redcurrant)… How marvellous a coincidence!

Monkey Gland

45 ml gin
45 ml fresh orange juice
1 bsp. Pernod
1 bsp. berry syrup
Shake with ice, strain and serve.

Monkey Gland cocktail with raspberry syrup has rich habitual taste with some berry notes. It is very interesting drink.

Monkey Gland cocktail with Routin Mixed berries Grenadine is astonishing, amizing cocktail. It has very unusual taste. Heavenly fair cocktail!
