Bailey's Irish Creme has always been
my TOP FAVORITE!!!!

I like it with ice (on the rocks....)

Sometimes a splash of milk or cream.

Also with DeKuyper Butter Shots Butterscotch Schnapps. ... equal parts....
Very nice change to it,
again, you put in amounts of your choice and test.

[flower] Tom and Jerry's!!!!! [flower]

This was a Christmas tradition in my family. We opened our gifts on Christmas Eve and Dad and I were in charge of making these since I was knee high to the kitchen table.

Ingredients:
Eggs
Powdered Sugar
Milk
Brandy
Dark Rum
Nutmeg

To Make:
1. Separate eggs, yolks in one bowl, whites in the other.
2. Mix powdered sugar into the yolks until you can handly move the spoon
3. Beat eggs whites until stiff.
4. Fold beaten egg white into egg/sugar mixture, we'll call this the batter.
5. Heat milk slowly (don't want that nasty stuff on the top) but not too hot to drink.
6. In the meantime while that milk is heating, pour hot water into cups so they will be hot.
7. Pour water out of cups.
8. Add batter to cups, to a little less than 1/2 full.
9. For the drinkers in the room, add 1/2 jigger rum and 1/2 jigger brandy.
10. Fill cup with hot milk, stir with a spoon until top is a little frothy.
11. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve.

[muggs]
Merry Christmas!

Hey Weezie,

The recipe on this web site doesn't have powdered sugar, I don't think there was any in 1862! [Big Grin]

Enjoy!

Hey njoynit,

I found this recipe on the Web, they use Royal Crown in place of your Canadian Club.

Drink Recipe: Duck Fart

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Kahl˙a
1/2 oz Bailey's Irish Cream
1/2 oz Royal Crown (Canadian Club)

Mixing instructions:
layer ingredients in order into shot glass

Bet this looks great with the Kahlua at the bottom layered up to the Royal Crown on top.

Hey JC...Trader Joes and Beverages and More both have a Tom and Jerry mix now. Just add rum, brandy, heat and away you go. My friend bought some and it was tasty goodness. I'll have to get some for the upcoming holidays!

Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
by weezie13 on December 10, 2003 08:50 PM
Njoynit and JC,
When doing your layering if one doesn't have
a steady hand or feel too confident with layering,
(you have to shoot the liquor in and on to the side of the shot glass as to not allow it to mix together as you're pouring...)
But if it's easier take the back of a spoon
and tip the spoon into the shot glass at say a
45 degree angle and gently pour on to the back
of the spoon and just to the side of the shot glass, so you achieve the layered look....

If worse comes to worse and you don't get it
the layered looked, they still take great
no matter what they look like!!

Some many millenniums ago,
it had Grand Marnier` on top.....
And they lit it!!! [Mad]

And it was called a B52!!!!

Gardengal and Weezie,

Gardengal, thanks for the heads up about Trader Joe's, I will pick some up. I love Tom and Jerry's but hate the time it takes to make them. Plus that darn batter separates by the next day.

Weezie, great spoon tip for layering! B52, I have had them, no wonder that recipe looked so familiar. [Big Grin]

Weezie is right...if it's in a 'shot' glass...one BIG gulp!! [muggs]

I wouldn't try it with a bigger layered drink, like a coffee nudge...then you stir and drink...

(Gee, Dad...I must have read this somewhere, for surely I don't know! [Wink] )

Thank you! [Love] [grin]

A coffee nudge is some combo of coffee, Bailey's and Kaluha, with whipped cream on top...if it's poured correctly it ends up layered, and then as it sits the whipped cream is pulled through it in 'streamers'...pretty neat looking! I personally am not too fond of the drink, but mom's side of my family drinks them this time of year...starting with Halloweeen...made the trick-or-treating better for us all! [thumb]

Ever had coconut rum and coke? [Cool]

WHITE RUSSIAN

Ingredients:

JC,
Are you a mixologist???

Peppermint,
Those things are pretty much ALL liquor,
depending how much milk/cream was put in..

If it was tasty to you, but would like it
to be less strong or weaker in liquor taste,
we used to have girls put them in tall shaker
glasses and add alot of milk, so it wasn't so much liquor tasting, still same amount of liq.
just more milk, more filling...

A Black Russian is no milk............

I'm way outta touch with that,
I was testing my memory of drinks and it
was wayyyyyyyyyyy shy of the repertoire

I should go back to studying that stuff again..
Not that I want to go back to that "den of wheneckwahties"(sp)??? (HOW do you spell that word anyways???)

How about Ramaki, my Hot Fav.

Ingredients:
Raw chicken livers
Waterchestnuts - cut in half
Bacon - cut in half across
Toothpicks

To Make:
Wrap chicken liver and waterchestnut in bacon, hold together with toothpick

Put on a pan and broil until bacon is crisp

If you absolutely hate chickien livers try:
Pineapple
Prunes (Yes, they taste great!)
Any canned fruit will also do

Some put a dash of Worcestershire Sauce on them before broiling

My husband's favorite! [muggs]

Brain hemorrage:

1 oz peach schnapps
1 tsp. Bailey's irish cream
1/2 tsp. grenadine

Pour the peach schnapps and then slowly pour the Irish creme without mixing. The creme will clump together and settle at the bottom of the schnapps. Pour the grenadine over the creme to complete the drink.

That Brain Hemorrage made me remember one of my Favs, a Cum Shot.

Yukon Jack
Baileys

Put Yukon Jack into a shot glass, gently pour in the Baileys until it looks like "you know what" in the bottom of the glass [Embarrassed]

In place of the Yukon you can use Butterscotch Schnapps

That's too funny!!!

That's the same concept of the one Barley
posted, when you pour in the Bailey's it
swirls around looking like a brain in a test tube beaker or something, and the dash of grenadine
makes it look bloody!!!!

I know, some of the names they come up with
now adays!!!
I sent a list of dirty mix drinks to the girls.

Wow, I remember having a "brain hemorage" a long time ago at d.c. space, a music club I used to hang out at. It was so gross, the way the whole "brain" came crashing into my mouth- like an OYSTER!!!!!!! But after I drank it, hey, what do you know? I didn't seem to be too traumatized.

They used to make the best Irish Coffees at d.c. space. They were made with Jameson's Irish whiskey, Kahlua, coffee and cream. Mmmmm!

Does anyone know how to make a Wassail bowl? I had a great one at a Colonial restaurant in Leesburg, once. It seemed to be made of hot cider, rum, oranges, cinnamon and cloves. It was a very popular restaurant, and we had to wait out in a line for some time before we were seated, but once inside the front door, the hostess handed the grownups a cup of Wassail from a huge kettle hanging over a fire in the fireplace, and it took the chill off real fast, I'll tell you.

All these drinks look yummy, especaily the "Brain Hemmorage", one of my favorite hot drinks is a "Blueberry Tea"

1 cup hot tea
Grand Marnier
Ameretto

I like a cherry in mine, some people like to make it with Earl Grey tea but I prefer just plain tea

Hi Bess,

Being the little web researcher that I am, here are several links to Wassail Bowl recipes. If you want more, just email me and I can send you more links! [muggs]

My grandma always made a big bowl of wassail when I was a kid. I don't think it had any rum in it since she let us kids drink it up. It was such a tasty treat with dessert, and she made the best cookies and pies. I miss her so much, especially this time of year. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. [kissies]

On a different note, Full Sail Brewing Co. has a seasonal beer called WassAle that is also tasty. They also have one called Wreck the Halls. Both are good. Hubby and I really enjoyed them when we were in Portland last month.

Jillie or JC, I'll take a tall gingerbread latte if you're going to Starbucks before you have your Ramaki Shooters!
