ITK, have I got the website for you!
Click here: The Webtender: In my bar - Select

You click on all the ingredients/juices/alcohols you have in your home and it generates a list of all drinks you can make. It's quite fun!

I love the Webtender!

Webtender is a GREAT site, especially if you're at home, don't feel like going to the store, and just want to know what kind of new drink you can try mixing yourself with what you have already at home!


Great tip!

Thanks for thinking of us! I told you that you would have some kind of link for us to check out. This is great for the fact like taking 'leftovers' and making something with them. I just depend on you to keep us all informed. I am anxious to try the orange tic tac. I buy when I make my trip to the store but I sure don't want to be obvious and race to the "Party Center" first. People seem to look at my basket to see what I buy. Once someone took the thing and never did get it back. I sure didn't like that.

thanks again

Strong

Well, we got all the ingredients and had to make special trip for galliano. Now to use all of the bottles up. They told me I made it too strong. I went according to directions that jkath told me about. Should I add more half and half next time? Can i mix orange vodka w/plain vodka? Trying to think of ways to use it. Well, there is always Christmas. Really strange, no one said the drink affected them. Maybe we have to drink more than one.

Now to try other suggestions.

As a part of my party rental business I rent out frozen drink machines (margarita machines). One time I screwed up and sent out a machine with Mai-Tai mix instead of strawberry daquiri mix. The renter used the mai-tai mix with tequilla and instantly came up with this drink that tasted almost IDENTICAL to orange tic tac's. I didn't believe him until I came back to correct the situation. I tasted the drink and was absolutely floored! Just like orange tic tacs.

...and are they on your list of "specialty party drinks", Home Chef?
I love those machines - such a great idea!

ITK, as to amounts, like I said, I never really measure. You kind of have to taste it and figure out what's best for you.
Also, when you're shaking a drink, make sure to use plenty of ice!

Orange Tic Tac

Isn't this great that you got to taste such fantastic drink? No matter how you get it, the flavor is what intrigues me.

jkath, I thank you for suggestion. We really try our drinking for weekend but maybe I could experiment alone and tell them I wanted to get it just right. Adding more ice I am sure would help.

I like a Black & Tan made with Guinness and Harp Lager. Harp is also made by Guinness. The first time I had a Black & Tan was at the Rolling Rock Pub in Roseville, CA at a friend's 30th birthday party.
