Preparation:

1) Pour the Vodka followed by squeezing the juice of half a lemon into a cocktail shaker then add the tomato juice and ice cubes.

Re: Cocktail recipees invited

This is what I do usually on evenings, when in the mood.

1. Fill a shaker with crushed ice
2. Add a cap full of tequila
3. Add a cap or two of lime juice (fresh, if available, or from a bottle)
4. Add salt to taste
5. Shake well
6. Enjoy

Re: Cocktail recipees invited

Since my hard drinking days are over.. I enjoy the following drinks..

1) Sangria - You can get a good bottle for less than 10 bucks..

You can even make your own, you just need

Red Wine - Any(cabernet sauvignon/merlot/shiraz/rioja/zinfandel), fresh Seasonal Fruit Any(lemon/orange/sliced strawberries/peaches/ blueberries/kiwi) and bit of bubbly water or citrus flavored soda..

you can even spike it with a shot of brandy or gin for a different taste or use ginger ale or lemon juice instead of soda

Ok to Prepare

Pour the wine into a pitcher.. cut the fruit into Wedges, squeeze the juice wedges into the wine.. toss in the squeezed wedges as well (minus the seed) add sugar/ rum/ hot sauce if you like it spicy..

Chill overnite and add citrus soda or club soda just before serving

if you want to serve right away.. use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice..


You will notice that i purposely didn't give proportions.. that's because some of the best sangria that i've drunk have been created by going wild on the ingredients and proportions..

Believe me you can't go wrong with this drink..

Cheers

Yep Shakti paaji... Tabasco gives the spicy & tangy flavour to the otherwise sweet Tomato juice in Bloody Mary.

Thanks for the recipes Sane & Razz.

Red Bull? Is that a beer? will any beer do? or is it some energy drink?

What in the hell is hypnotiq Guess I have much to learn.

Hypnoiq is a blue liquid. Used as toppers for drink.

A mixed liqueur, made with vodka, cognac, and tropical flavors. It's colored blue, and is about 34 proof (17% alcohol).

Red Bull
Quote:
The beverage was first concocted in Austria in 1987, and is marketed as an energy drink that "improves muscle tone," "increases endurance 25 percent" and "invigorates mind and body." Whatever wildly optimistic health benefits it lays claim to, the drink's current appeal among young people stems from its rumored legendary energy boosting properties, which it gets from its high caffeine content. The caffeine in one can of Red Bull (80 mg) equals that of one cup of black coffee (which varies in caffeine content from 80 to 180 mg depending on how it is prepared). The drink also contains taurine, a derivative of the sulphur-containing amino acid, cysteine. Taurine is often found as an ingredient in infant milk formulas.

Criticisms of the beverage primarily have to do with the amount of caffeine (equivalent to that found in a typical cup of coffee) and sugar (about 5 teaspoons per 250 ml can) contained in the brew. Caffeine is deadly when ingested in a massive dose, but the amount estimated to prove fatal is ten grams, which would require 125 cans of the drink. Disregarding the marketing hype, sugar is no better at giving energy than any other food or drink. The best fluids for rehydration contain just a pinch of salt and sugar, which makes Red Bull a highly unusual sports drink.

Despite whatever conclusions one might draw from the name, Red Bull contains no substances of animal origin. Even the taurine used in the formulation is synthetically produced.

Yet concern remains, fueled by misgivings about the drink's high concentrations of caffeine, a lurking gut feeling that large amounts of taurine might not be beneficial for folks, and suspicion that Red Bull somehow caused four deaths.

In 1991, the deaths of three people in Sweden who expired after drinking Red Bull were reported. Two of the deceased had mixed the drink with alcohol, the other downed it undiluted during rigorous exercise. No direct proof has yet emerged that demonstrates Red Bull is at fault in any of these deaths. In 1999, 18-year-old Irish basketball player Ross Cooney drank three Red Bulls before expiring on the court. The coroner attributed the young man's demise to thickened arteries and sudden adult death syndrome, yet due to guilt by association, his having had three cans of Red Bull just before his life ended is perceived by some as the one's having caused the other.
