Idonis

Day 128


Idonis
3 shots out of 5


No clue what the name of this cocktail is supposed to represent......maybe the person who invented it, maybe they pulled letters out of a hat, whichever the reason.....it's a very unique name.  On that note, Happy Friday night to you Idonis!

I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5.  I have to admit......apricot brandy..........oh my.......kinda nervous about it.  There's more alcohol in this cocktail then there is mixer, which had me not really wanting to take that first sip.  I'm glad I did though!  This is NOT my usual fruity sweet cocktail that I give my 3's to, oh no!  This cocktail has the perfect amount of alcohol to juice ration for people like me who don't like the taste of alcohol taking over their cocktail.  Don't get me wrong, I can definitely taste the alcohol, but there's just enough pineapple juice mixed with the apricot flavor in the brandy to make me like it!

I had a question of "How Do You Store All Of Your Bottles?"  Well, I figured that there are more of you wondering the same thing, so I took a picture of my bar and posted it in my New Cocktail Equipment and Supplies tab.

Here is the recipe for an Idonis:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz apricot brandy
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
In a short highball glass, fill it up with ice and pour in your vodka, brandy and juice.  Stir up your cocktail and enjoy!

Here's to trying apricot brandy again and liking it!

Cheers!!
