Zombie (Stroh Edition)

Last week many of imbabers-blogers participated in real Zombiennale (New Zombie Recipes – TDN). I decided to support this theme. This great recipe of Zombie cocktails was found on Cocktail.Idea [site with very pretty design, but mediocre cocktails recipe]. But idea Zombie cocktail with Stroh (overproof specied rum from Austria) seems very interesting. I tasted Stroh rum in my Mai Tai some times ago and obtained a lot of pleasure.

Two Zombie Cocktails (Два коктейля Зомби)

Zombie (Stroh Edition)

60 ml white rum
30 ml gold rum
30 ml Stroh 60
1 dash Angostura
30 ml orange juice
30 ml lemon juice
30 ml pineapple juice
20 ml simple syrup
Shake with a lot of crushed ice and pour in hurricane glass. Garnish with any apropriate garnish (something poisonouos, I hope…).

This Zombie Cocktail has very strong and no so sweet taste. It is magnificent drink! This cocktail is great with song named Zombie by Fela Kuti.

Tangerine Margarita

As you know mandarine (tangerine) is one of my favorite citrus fruits. Tangerine (juice) is so rare ingredient for mixology. This interesting cocktail was found on Dale`s DeGroff site:

The Tangerine Margarita (Коктейль Мандариновая Маргарита)

Tangerine Margarita

60 ml tequila (Sauza Conmemorativo)
30 ml Cointreau
15 ml fresh lime juice
15 ml fresh tangerine juice
Shake. Serve on the rocks with salt rim.

It is amazing coctail, first of all, because it is Margarita :) Great Margarita on the rocks with some piquant note of fresh tangerines. Great cocktail, but in my mind was born some fantasies:

The Mandarine Margarita Cocktail (Мандариновая Маргарита)

Mandarine Margarita

60 ml tequila
30 ml Mandarine Napoleon liqueur
15 ml fresh lime juice
15 ml fresh tangerine juice
Shake. Strain over ice into old-fashioned glass with salt rim. Garnish with lime wheel.

Admirable! This cocktail has rich sunny color and interesting taste, because it is Margarita too :)

Blueberry Martini

Actually I have some problems with recipe normal cocktail with my new liqueur DeKuyper Blueberry… But result is great!

The Blueberry Martini (Коктейль Черничный Мартини)

Blueberry Martini

50 ml vodka
25 ml blueberry liqueur (white)
1 dash blue curacao
2 drops of grenadine
Shake well and strain into frozen cocktail glass.

I use BOLS Blue and Lemon-X grenadine for color like blueberry. This cocktail has strong, sweet berry taste. Admirable!
