Cocktail of the Night mini – Campton Cure Martini

Wanted a drink, yet again.

Off CocktailBuilder.com

1 oz of Absolut Citron Vodka (or citrus-infused vodka)
1 oz of Cointreaux (or orange liqueur)
3 squeeze of Lime Juice (how much is a squeeze?!!)
Cranberry Juice (I hate it when they don’t give amounts)
Blend ingredients and serve on the rocks.
Other sources gave it as
1 oz of Absolut Citron Vodka (or citrus-infused vodka)
1/2 oz of Cointreaux
3 squeeze of Lime Juice
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
So I went with the second one, substituting orangecello with Cointreau. I think I put in to much lime because it was seriously tart (really, how much is a squeeze?) So I added more orangecello. Would definitely try this one again.

Cocktail of the Night mini – Suffering Bastard

This isn’t going to be a proper Cocktail of the Night post, but I mixed this up and wanted to record it.

I had decided I wanted a drink and was using www.cocktailbuilder.com to get ideas. This was one of the things that popped up:

1 oz of Gin
1 oz of rum (or Light Rum)
1 oz of Rose’s lime juice
bitters (or Angostura bitters)
Ginger ale

Shake all except ginger ale. Pour into glass and fill with ginger ale

I didn’t think I’d like this, since I have a history of not liking stuff with lime juice, but it’s quite good. I went a bit lighter on the lime juice (closer to 3/4 oz) and I probably could have put more bitters in (I love my bitters). But it’s quite tasty and refreshing. Not extremely strong either.
