The exact quote is: ” Tea, coffee, or a pint of gin? ” The quote comes from the movie series LoveJoy. Series 2. Episode 2.
Mystified, I wondered if I went into a posh bar and tried to order a drink with coffee and gin would it be possible? Well Of Course! Is there a female version of Rip Van Winkle? My version would be so different from the male version…of going off to the mountains to drink with fairies or trolls to sleep it off for the next 20 years. My version would include-raising a child, having a house…fixing things as they break kind of woman. But in all that busyness what happened? I stopped going into bars. So in a way I was sleeping with the trolls and fairies. To make it real I probably should give my troll a name …Tom the Troll..There I feel much better. O.k. let’s move on. So there really are drinks with both coffee and gin. One is called The Turbo Gin & Tonic. Which was described repeatedly as “A classic British drink with the addition of cold brew.” Did you know how to make a cold brew? Yes ..Yes I know you can buy it now in the grocery store in the milk department…but if you want to make it at home it’s easy peasy! Just leave the coffee to steep in cold water overnight. Cuts the acidity also gives it a sweeter taste. Grab a tall glass pour in the ice , add the gin then the coffee and then add the tonic . Don’t forget the long lemon peel. You know it’s easty filling up your “history” with questions like Martini espresso? Gin and coffee? Coffee and Jin? Creative drinks for creative people? Cute names for creative drinks…I always wonder if anyone followed my trail of thought …they ‘d go crazy. Then I found ….Drinks Mixer ….Amazing! http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink2629.html Oh..Oh it was the answer to all my weird “creative questions” So at Drinks Mixer they have “182” recipes of drinks using coffee and a paltry “27 ” for tea. So of course I looked for cute names ….
Duck Fart Coffee ….I think you should ask a ten-year old boy who likes to tell fart jokes why it’s called this. He’ll probably have an excellent explanation.
1 ½ oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream, 1 ½ oz Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey , 1 ½ oz. Kahlua Coffee Liqueur.1 ½ oz. Creme de Cacao . 1 oz. Whipped cream , 6-10 oz. Fresh brewed coffee.
Voodoo Tea …. I think a person should eat Voodoo Donuts ( Portland) while sipping this drink to have a real voodoo experience….Maybe put on jazzy voodoo music on in the background…
1 shot White rum, ½ shot Blue Curacao Liqueur , sweetened tea in a Highball glass.
