Saying Bye to Single, By Drinking Double

Thursday, May 15, 2008

This weekend is one of reader Amy’s last nights out as a single lady. To mark this occasion, I am making the trip back to the Jersey Shore for two nights in…Atlantic City. While there are a lot of misconceptions about this gem of a town (quote from my grandma, “Don’t get shot,”) I will be sure to post a full trip recap. Of course one that is sensored and acceptable to share.

A bachelorette party means a lot of alcohol consumption. And a lot of alcohol consumption typidally involves shots. Whenever shots are ordered at the bar, the first thing out of a girls mouth is “make it something girly.” So for Thirsty Thursday, here are five “girly shots.”

(Mental note to my male readers: remember these when Uncle Pat comes out)

Washington Apple Shot
- 1/3 part Crown Royal Canadian Whisky
- 1/3 part DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker
- 1/3 part Cranberry Juice
- 1 splash of 7Pp
Pour all ingredients (except for the 7Up) into a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a shot glass. Add a splash of 7Up.

- 1 part vodka 1 part triple sec
- 1 part Rose’s Lime Juice
Shake well with ice and strain mixture into a shot glass.
Lemon Drop
- 1/2 par vodka
- 1/2 part lemon juice 1 sugar cube
Add sugar to the rim of an old-fashioned glass, and drop a cube or packet of sugar into the bottom of the glass. Pour vodka and lemon juice into a stainless steel shaker over ice, and shake until completely cold. Pour into the prepared old-fashioned glass, and serve.

Red Headed Slut - 1 part peach schnapps
- 1 part Jagermeister
- Splash of cranberry juice
Shake well with ice and strain mixture into a shot glass.
Chocolate Cake- 1/2 part Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
- 1/2 part vodka
- sugar
Add vodka and Frangelico to a shaker with ice. Shake. Garnish with a sugar-coated lemon.

Final Note: Let's see if this bachelorette party can compare to the last. The picture to the right explains it all.
