Liquid Cocaine

Day 64


Liquid Cocaine
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.

I HUGE cheers to Natalie on her birthday!  I look forward to celebrating with you!  This liquid cocaine is for you!!

Cheers!

  1. Wow, those three ingredients sound horrid to mix together. Peppermint, rum, and licorice just doesn't sound like a yummy combo. I do have to laugh, though, that we got Liquid Marijuana on Monday and Liquid Cocaine on Thursday. I can't wait to see what drugs we get to drink on Sunday! :)

    1. Yea, I would never order one of those at a bar on purpose. I have to say though, that the thought of those 3 mixed together was worse then the actual taste.......or maybe because I was really anticipating it to be horrid?
      Actually the Liquid Marijuana was back in March (and was the best drug cocktail I've made so far in my opinion).....but the Liquid Valium was only 5 days after that, haha. Maybe I should lay low on the drug cocktails for a while? Haha.

  2. how weird... my RSS feed downloads to Outlook and has it downloaded and dated Mon, 4/16, at 4 PM. It does say Day 38, so don't know why it seems to have updated itself.

    1. That IS weird! Wait! You know what might have happened, I did some "tag" updating the other day......I bet that was the day and that Liquid Marijuana was one of the cocktails I added tags to! That would explain it. Sorry for the confusion! But the more I think about that cocktail......I just may have to make another Liquid Marijuana this weekend!! Cheers!!

    2. Your friend Natalie has great taste in drinks. I'm not a seasoned drinker myself but my friend recently introduced me to this shot (and other Jagger drinks) and now I'm hooked!

    3. Hi darkkarate! Jagger isn't bad, I like it mixed in with other ingredients. My favorites that I've made so far are: The Torpedo and Buttery Jagger Ripple. I'm glad you like this cocktail, if you don't mind give it a rating above =)

      Cheers!!
