2.5 shots out of 5
Tonight's cocktail is dedicated to one of my very best friends, Natalie! Today is her birthday and she has requested that I make Liquid Cocaine on her birthday. So here's to you Natty!
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. Let me explain. This is definitely a cocktail that you sip, and let it sit on your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing. If I was to take big sips, I would give it a 2.5. If I was to sip it the way I believe it should be sipped.....it could rate a little higher......almost to a 3. This cocktail does call for 100-proof peppermint schnapps, which I don't have, so I just used my regular peppermint schnapps. The reason they ask for the 100-proof is merely for potency. I can taste each ingredient in this cocktail as I take my slow sips and let it rest on my tongue. I think it's a definite "get your buzz on" cocktail if that's what you're after. My husband said that it sort of tasted like mouthwash, and I agree if you take a big swig of it and don't let it sit in your mouth. If you are going to try this one, please don't swig it.
Here is the recipe for Liquid Cocaine:
- 1 shot 151-proof rum
- 1 shot 100-proof peppermint schnapps (or regular like I used)
- 1 shot Jägermeister
In your shaker, add ice, rum, peppermint schnapps and Jägermeister. Stir up your mixture very well so that they all get blended well. Strain your cocktail into a chilled cocktail glass.
