This page is meant to be the ever expanding collection of the recipes that I have built myself or tuned to personal liking from a well known version. This page is likely to be updated more often than the main blog page, but the posts here will be shorter, and most likely will simply redirect you to the respective Reddit post of mine.

  • 1.5oz lime juice
  • 1oz pineapple juice
  • Top off with 2-4 oz of ginger beer

To be noted this is a two people drink. It fills a pineapple and is meant to be split. For a one person version split the ingredients in half.
A nice drink for two that fits into a pineapple!

Cucumber Margarita: discussion

  • 1.5oz tequila
  • 0.5oz gin
  • 0.75oz simple syrup
  • 1oz lime juice

I know that for a classic Margarita one would use Cointreau in place of simple, but I’ve felt like it will mess with the cucumber flavor, hence the replacement. The garnish is a lime twist and a cucumber diamond (it’s not my idea, have seen it on Instagram).

A riff on the margarita that adds refreshing cucumber flavors to it

Himbeergeist Negroni: discussion.

  • 1.5oz Himbeergeist Schnaps
  • 1oz Campari
  • 1oz sweet vermouth

Note, I am talking German schnapps, which is basically clear brandy, not an alcoholic syrup!
