Jack-O-Monk Milkshake (Beta)
A nice creamy pumpkin spice milkshake with a hint of coffee and hazelnut.
Ill assume that this delicious cocktails name is derived from its tropical flavors (Jamaican), and its mind numbing effects (Quaalude). With five spirits, and a bit of cream to blend it all together, this rich drink is a great dessert cocktail that will definitely keep the evening going. We hope youll try our featured cocktail, the Jamaican Quaalude!

A refreshing balance of sour lemon and sugar, laced with gin and lengthened with soda.
This cocktail was created by the by Canon Kir, Mayor of Dijon, France (1946-1968). At his receptions he served an aperitif made with the locally produced crème de cassis and Bourgogne Aligoté white wine. The concoction eventually became known as Kir aperitif.

Champagne replaces Bourgogne Aligoté white wine in this 'Royal' rendition of Mayor Canon Kir's classic aperitif. Easy to make, easy to drink.

Mad Monk Milkshake (Difford's)
This was one of my really first adventures into creamy cocktails. It was and still is one of my favorite cocktails ever. It is smooth, really easy ot drink, and frankly just fun.

The Manhattan is complex, challenging and moreish. Best of all, it's available in a style to suit every palate.

For the perfect salt rim, liquidize sea salt to make it finer, then run a lime wedge around the outside edge of the glass before dipping the rim in salt. Rimming only half the glass with salt gives the drinker the option of enjoying the cocktail with or without salt.
A really simple Mexican toddy. The agave nectar and tequila really give it a different flavor then you normal toddy.
Great when made with freshly squeezed orange juice, this cocktail is very similar to the Buck's Fizz, which tends to have a higher proportion of Champagne. Also see the Grand Mimosa, basically the same drink charged with orange liqueur.

When well made, this Cuban cousin of the Mint Julep is one of the world's greatest and most refreshing cocktails.
Moscow Mule (Hab und Gut)
My favourite cocktail. I can't tell you how much I love this one. Made right, this warms the cockles and makes you want another!

A long drink, vodka-based drink with spice provided by ginger beer.

Bitter and dry, but very tasty. This no namby-pamby drink is traditionally assembled and mixed directly in the glass. There is something about a Negroni that does not suit fussing about with mixing glasses and strainers. To garnish with a lemon slice is a heinous crime but I am quite partial to a fat orange wedge.

As with the Martini, the glass this cocktail is served in has taken the name of the drink. Its origin stems from the adaptation and renaming of a similar drink known as the Whisky Cocktail which was shaken and served up. Who did the adapting and renaming is unknown.
