Post your cocktails, especially unusual combinations or rare ingredients. I'm pretty much starting this thread as a replacement for the now-defunct GOD thread of the same theme, so some of these may be familiar to GOD people. I had pages in there, and saved most of the stuff that's worth drinking again; the ones below are pruned down to just the genuinely good combinations (which is a couple levels above 'worth drinking again'). Tea-infused vodka: chuck ~5-10 tbsp of the looseleaf tea of your choice into a 750mL bottle of (good) vodka. Let it sit for 12-18 hours, shaking occasionally. Taste periodically to see if it's strong enough. You will taste the vodka, so bottom shelf stuff doesn't really work for this. As far as teas I've had the best results with Darjeeling or Maloom teas, but they're the teas I like best anyway. Delicious straight, or in any number of combinations. Grapefruit tea: 50mL black tea infused vodka, 30mL Giffard's Creme de Pamplemousse liqueur, couple dashes Angostura bitters. Shake over ice. My periodic tea puritanism aside, this is everything sweet tea aspires to be. Elderflower tea: 50:50 mix of tea infused vodka and elderflower liqueur. Outside of gin and tonic, probably my favourite mixed drink. Can dilute with soda water or seltzer to dull a bit of the sweetness of the liqueur. Peach tea: Roughly 2:1:1 ratio of tea infused vodka : Giffard's crème de pêche de vigne : soda water. Still don't have a proper, measured ratio for that, but it's pretty hard to fuck up. It's yet another on the list of ~20-30% abv drinks that taste like good, fruit-flavoured iced tea. I could probably open a bar in a nice bit of Charleston or Savannah and make bank on these things. Licorice Orange: 2 shots ouzo, 1 shot triple sec, dash or 3 of bitters. Into a champagne flute and top off with soda water. If you like orange spice herbal teas you can work with this, and swap in a cinnamon or clove-based bitter for a very similar flavour profile. Alternately - Bitter Spiced Orange: 3 parts ouzo, 1 part orange infused vodka, dash of Campari. Couple dashes of cinnamon bitters if it isn't in the orange infused vodka you're using. Add an amount of seltzer water equal to the total volume of booze. Same deal as above; it's broadly similar to an orange spice herbal tea. Swapping out the triple sec for vodka and adding Campari gives it a much stronger bitter note though. If you really go for bitter drinks you can use an orange peel infused vodka (no pulp, peel only) instead, and sweeten to taste with simple syrup. I prefer the result of that route personally, but orange peel infused vodka is fucking useless for everything else, so it's not usually worth it. Whisky Marmalade: 1 shot Aalborg Nordguld aquavit, 2 shots orange juice, dash of angostura bitters, and ~1/2 shot of the smokiest, peatiest Scotch whisky you can find. Put in a highball glass and top up with carbonated water. May need to adjust the amount of whisky depending on what you use, but you can get a dead ringer for whisky marmalade in a glass doing that. Lagavulin works well as long as you never let your whisky-loving friends know you only have a bottle to use as a mixer. Aquavit and Tonic: muddle some strips of lemon peel in a cocktail shaker, making sure to abuse the peel enough to get some essential oils going. Add 100mL aquavit and ~1tsp lemon juice, and shake without ice. Strain into a glass and top up with ~200mL tonic water. I would still use Aalborg Nordguld for this since I kind of developed a taste for it, but any aquavit would probably be at least decent.
