Drinks Beginning With R

Ramos Gin Fizz
2 ounces (60 mL) gin, 3 drops orange flower water, 1 egg whites, 1 teaspoon (5 mL) bar sugar, 1 ounce (30 mL) lemon juice, ½ ounce (15 mL) lime juice, 1 ounce (30 mL) cream, soda water to taste.
Shake very vigorously for at least one minute. Strain into a tall thin glass, or a very large old fashioned glass, and top with some soda water. Stir.
Red Headed Slut
Equal parts Jagermeister and Peach Schnapps ( usually ¾ OZ) and 1 oz of cranberry juice.
Shaken with ice strained and served in a rocks glass. Taken as a shot.
Vodka, club soda, lime.
The ingredients are served over ice with a slice or wedge of lime squeezed into the drink.
The proportions may be varied to make a stronger or weaker cocktail. It is most often made using 1 part vodka to 3 parts club soda, but if a stronger Rene is desired, use equal parts of vodka and club soda. The Rene is low in carbohydrates when compared with many other mixed drinks. Its refreshingly light taste makes it a natural favorite during the warmer months of the year.
Ricky Bobby

1 oz Dr. McGillicuddy’s Cherry Schnapps; 3 oz Mike’s Hard Lemonade,

Serve in a Bomb Cup (plastic cup with center shot), or place a shotglass inside a lowball glass. Fill the shotglass with Cherry McGillicuddy’s and pour the Mike’s Lemonade around it, just a little higher than the center shot so the red bleeds slightly into the drink. If ingredients are chilled, there’s no need to use a shaker.
