I recently had the fun opportunity to chat with my friends Cynthia Pelayo, Gaby Triana, and Nicholas Diak about making a few drinks worthy of a horror-filled weekend for virtual StokerCon. See what we mixed up below!
The wonderful Gaby Triana has contributed the tasty Bourbon Sour Blood Orange seen below. You can find the recipe she used here! Gaby also put everything together in a video over on her channel The Witch Haunt, you can find it here!
- 1 oz blood orange juice
- 2 1/4 oz bourbon
- 1 oz simple syrup
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 1 maraschino cherry
The lovely Cina Pelayo has mixed together two of my favorite things, vodka and coffee. I definitely need to try this! Enjoy the recipe below from Cina:
“Unofficial StokerCon Coffee Martini Recipe
2oz vodka of your choice, I used Kettle One
2oz coffee liqueur of your choice, I used Kahlua blonde roast style, rum & coffee liqueur
2-3 oz of chilled espresso
Add ingredients to shaker (with ice)
Add to chilled martini glass”
And next we have the King of Cocktails, Nick Diak! Nick makes some seriously creative drinks, and it’s always so fun to see what he’s up to.
From Nick: “This is, hands down, my favourite tiki drink.
.75 oz Lemon Hart 151 Rum
2 oz Lime Juice
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1.5 oz of Passion fruit syrup
.25 oz of Demerara Sugar Syrup
*.25 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1.5 of Denizen 8 Rum
*Demerara Sugar Syrup is a simple syrup made with Demerara Sugar. Simply dissolve 1 part sugar into 1 part water. Do 2 parts sugar to 1 part water to make Rich Demerara Sugar Syrup.
Put all ingredients except the Lemon Hart 151 into a cocktail shaker. Add a few pebbles/bits of crushed ice. Shake until ice dissolves. Pour into a double rocks glass. Fill with crushed/pebble ice. Float the 151 rum on top.
MOST AMAZING DRINK EVER. Dangerous and delicious.”
Oh, and me! I made what I’m calling the Sloe Bleed due to the Sloe Gin + if you spill this, it certainly bleeds everywhere. Not that I know that from experience…
Ingredients for the Sloe Bleed:
1.5 ounces Sloe Gin
.5 ounces Heering Cherry Liqueur
1 tsp lemon juice
1 dash Peychaud’s bitters
Shake together and then add on club soda and any desired ice — it should be nice and foamy!
