Orange Tic Tac

Does anyone know of a drink that tastes like orange tic tac?

Also Black 'n Tan. It is combination of Guiness Beer and what else? Heard in conversation and cannot recall what it was?

If anyone knows I am sure many have answered my questions before and feel confident of your knowledge.

Thanks

Well depending on who you ask, a black and tan can be a few different things.

When I order one I am expecting Guiness and Bass. The Guiness is floated on top of the Bass to creat the back and tan color.

Quick

Thank you both for your response. I knew I wouldn't have to wait more than few minutes to find out if people knew what i was talking about.

Seems like I am checking this section out more often than I did before. I surely would not like to admit that I rather drink than eat! Seems lot simpler and makes you feel good. Maybe if I wouldn't have to do all the cooking and washing dishes I wouldn't mind. But like everyday doing same thing at same time. Should get a break more than once week. I do not mind eating White Castles now and t hen. Think I am getting lazy?

ITK: here's a tasty treat I had over at Wynn's last month in Vegas:
galliano
smirnof mandarin
half & half

Put into a shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass.
Reminds me of a 50/50 ice cream bar.

Great

jkath: one thing I know is that you are really acquainted w/good things and special drinks are one of them. I appreciate this and since I am not sure could I just mix cup of each one and put into shaker In other words, equal parts of each one? It does sound good. I am familiar w/galliano had it once and really was good. I will go through the liqour department and hope I pick a good one, or is there only one kind of each?

Must have had good time in Vegas to remember this special drink. Do you make them at home sometimes? Hope you are doing well in your new house.

Black & Tans are a combination of Guiness and Bass where I come from too.

As for orange Tic Tacs, I've never even tasted them, so I can't comment.

ITK - I usually eyeball out my meaurements with drinks, but I'd put one part galliano, 2 parts smirnoff mandarin & 2-4 parts half & half (depending on how strong you want it).
If you want to be extra fancy, get a nice strip (about 1/4" thick & 2" long) of orange peel, & twist it around a swizzle stick till it takes shape (like a corkscrew). Lightly spritz with water & then sprinkle sugar over it. Prop it on the side of the martini glass.

Feeling?

What is your opinion of someone who has so little connect ion w/liqour? I just feel like I am sitting in back of room and everyone in front row gets to sample and I don't. I am just thankful you don't ignore my posts and keep me ignorant. I do learn a lot from this site that is why I really do not like to miss out for too long. Otherwise I will be in the last row. At least you have shared your happiness w/me and I can try to duplicate in the privacy of my own kitchen. Even if it is alone. Seems I have the best time when I try different mixtures of liqours. I hope you will continue to respond and understand I have to learn too. the family feels it unnecessary for me to go to bar to learn anything. Thanks for all your time.
