Cocktails - What Are You Drinking?


#1

A place to share your favorite cocktails and cocktail bars, both new and classic. And if you’re mixing it up at home, share that too! :cocktail::tropical_drink::clinking_glasses:

When people share them, I hope they’ll share “recipes.” Good topic.

I’m a huge fan of martinis, but my cardiologist suggested that if I drink, drink tequila (so, no more vodka for me). Here’s how I order: Herradura Silver (or any Silver, if they don’t have Herradura), fresh squeezed lime, a tiny splash of Grand Marnier - shaken, and served as a martini.

Everyone ends up having what I have.


#14

Did your cardiologist explain why tequila would be healthier than vodka, whisky, gin, brandy, or rum?


#15

Tequila is a “healthier” alcohol, it’s a probiotic and prebiotic. She (my doctor) explained that studies have shown it to be a “heart healthy” alcohol, it can lower cholesterol and aid in digestion. This is true of Top Shelf 100% agave tequila, only.

Nice. I should do that, too, but I’m lazy. :grin:

What did they do to the drink? And is a Paloma the same as a Clay Pot? According to our fave Mexican bartender at our fave Mexican bar it is We consider them potentially dangerous as you don’t know you’re drinking :slight_smile:
