    Creating your own drinks at home

    I just came up with a new favorite

    8oz Apple Cider
    2 Shots [URL="http://www.becherovka.ws/"]Becherovka[/URL] (Czech clove liquor... found in m
    1/2 shot whiskey

    Serve over ice.

    Tastes like apple pie with cinnamon.

    That sounds amazing. Cloves and apple are a great marriage. A nice variation might be replacing the Becherovka with Tuaca, which has vanilla notes. Or, maybe just adding some Tuaca to what you have already concocted, as vanilla is awesome in apple pie. Salute, or [I]Na zdraví.[/I]

    One gluttonous St. Patrick's Day a few years back, I dropped a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a pint of Guinness. An Irish Beer Float. It was actually pretty damn good.

    That does sound good.

    BTW, Becherovka can be found at a lot of liquor stores in NYC (Astor Place Liquors for sure)... I can't recommend it high enough. I'm three in already. I'm just rooting against Texas tonight.

    ...and keep making this drink (and maybe Hot Chocolate and Whiskey)

    Back in the late 80s/early 90s when we shared a season ticket, my brother would always show up for cold weather games at the Meadowlands with a massive thermos of this stuff. Awesome.
