Tie One On Tuesday

Ah nature! Little woodland creatures, outside my window, mocking me with their freedom. Makes me want to have a drink in their honor...

How can anyone resist a cute little fuzzy squirrel? They eat everything out of your bird feeders, hide peanuts in your potted plants and pelt you with walnut shells. Yep, they are cute little things. What would make them even better? If they were pink and were made out of alcohol.

Pink Squirrel
3/4 oz creme de noyaux
3/4 oz white creme de cacao
1 1/2 oz heavy cream

Pour ingredients into a shaker with ice, strain and serve in a martini glass

Oh my goodness, will you look at that! A sweet deer eating my sage. Ya know, you would taste better in alcohol form too.  I'm just gonna let you know now that I would never drink this cocktail, but you should have at it.

30ml Jagermeister
1 Scoop of vanilla ice cream

Pour Jagermeister in to a tall glass.
Add scoop of ice cream.
Top up with coke.

Look at you, being all foxy and such! You need a Fox-tail!

1 oz. grapefruit vodka
1 oz. gin
1/2 oz. coconut cream
1/2 oz. orange juice
1 oz. raspberry/blueberry juice
Fill a cocktail shaker half-full with crushed ice.
Add ingredients
Shake and serve in a martini glass

Oh little woodland animals, how I love thee. Even though you scurry around and laugh at my lack of freedom. That's okay, I laugh at your lack of opposable thumbs. For you my furry friend, can not hold a martini glass. HA!
