Sample text

We're creating our own with a water–lemon juice–sugar combo. By the way, the variation is for all my Texas friends who're hooked on Dr Pepper, invented in 1885 in Waco, Texas. Makes ten 6-ounce servings 2/3 cup (scant 6 ounces) gold tequila 2/3 cup (scant 6 ounces) spiced rum 2/3 cup (scant 6 ounces) vodka 2/3 cup (scant 6 ounces) gin 2/3 cup (scant 6 ounces) triple sec 1 cup (8 ounces) water ½ cup (4 ounces) fresh lemon juice ¼ cup superfine sugar 2½ cups (20 ounces) icy-cold cola Garnish: 10 lemon wedges or slices Combine all ingredients except cola and garnish in a pitcher that holds at least 75 ounces.

Stir vigorously to dissolve brown sugar. LIME DROP: Substitute fresh lime juice for the lemon juice. LIVELY LEMON DROP: Substitute pepper-flavored vodka (such as Absolut Peppar) for the regular vodka. ORANGE DROP: Substitute orange- avored vodka for the regular vodka and ⅛ cup (1 ounce) frozen orange juice concentrate plus ½ cup (4 ounces) water for the lemon juice. Garnish each serving with an orange slice. SASSY LEMON DROP: Add ½ to ¾ teaspoon Tabasco sauce. Liquid Oxygen ubstituting Alizé Red liqueur for the Alizé Gold (page 9) transforms this drink's color and avor—it's di erent, but still delicious.

Water Power Recipes like the Cosmopolitan (page 94) and the Martini (page 124) have a small amount of water in the ingredients list. No, it's not a mistake, and, no, you shouldn't leave it out thinking that it'll dilute the drink. There's a plan here. You see, in recipes where the ingredients are typically shaken with ice for a single-drink preparation, the ice melts slightly, adding water to the mix and contributing just the right texture. So, at least in this case, water retention is a good thing.
