Middle Class Bartending: Days 4 & 5

     We are now heading into the second half of Hanukkah. It is also 12/12/12, and the Mayan Apocalypse is just around the corner. What does that mean? No clue. However, we will ponder it all with two new beverages.  The first is based on a Jewish holiday tradition. That tradition is based on where we traditionally eat on Christmas.

Jewish Christmas

  • 1ounce Maotai Liquor
  • 12 ounces Tsingtao
  1. Pour Maotai into shot glass
  2. Drop into mug of Tsingtao
  3. Drink as a Boilermaker
     This one just struck me as a fun drink to put together. You can never go wrong this time of the year with a Fiddler on the Roof reference.

Tequila Sunrise, Sunset

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 2 ounces blue curacao
  • 1 ounce grenadine
  1. Pour tequila, orange juice, and blue curacao in that order over ice. Do not stir.
  2. Pour grenadine around edge of cocktail (inside edge, don't be a dummy).
  3. Garnish with orange slice
It happens every time.
Two drinks and BAM! I'm up on the  damned roof!
Good times!
