Orange-Scented Grilled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
My boyfriend loved them (I'm a vegetarian, so I don't count). I made them almost exactly as written. The only difference was that I used orange-flavored bitters simply because the bottle was a lot smaller, 1/3 the price of regular aromatic bitters and because the recipe was for "orange scented lobster."

Sangria Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Simply amazing ham! To make it healthier, I replace the unsweetened pineapple juice with pineapple chunks pureed in a blender until it liquifies. This eliminates a lot of sugar and preservatives from the canned juice. I also cut down on the amount of brown sugar and replace some of it with apple sauce which has natural sweetening ability. I make my own sangria; that way I can control the ingredients in the sangria by adding or taking out anything I want. I also added some minced Vidalia onion to the brown sugar and it was excellent.

Filthy Martini

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This recipe yields a very good dirty AKA "filthy" martini. If you can't find the Stirrings Dirty Mix, you can simply substitute with olive juice. Add a bit of dry vermouth if you like it. Also, don't forget to chill the martini glass before straining the cocktail out of the shaker. When the martini is in the shaker, shake it hard! You want it to come out with a whitish/ slightly cloudy appearance to it and a very thin ice "skin" on top. This will MAKE the martini! One last piece of advice, the better the vodka used, the better this martini will be.

St. Michael's Irish Americano

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Excellent! I also add a bit of Dark (Green) Creme de Menthe in the cream for a festive Irish green color as well as a bit of chocolate syrup after adding in the coffee for a mint-chocolate flavor in the coffee.

Electric Lemonade

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Addicting! I used half the amount of lemon-lime soda and added in half lemonade as well. This way, it actually is lemonade! I also garnished all of these with a lemon wedge and a cherry. The contrast in the colors is also electrifying!

Pineapple Breeze

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This is a very good cocktail. However, I tend to stay away from orange juice because it worsens my heartburn. Instead, I tried the exact same drink except substituted peach nectar for orange juice and added a shot/ jigger of grenadine on top. It was like a pineapple/ peach sunrise. Absolutely delicious!

Tainted Fruit Shots

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
My favorite party drink! But as a bartender, I constantly try to improve recipes, so here's what I did. I prepared the Jell-O shots as stated, but on the side used a melon baller to dissect a melon into little balls. I placed the balls on a triple or quadruple paper towel-lined cookie sheet and let them sit at room temperature for a couple of hours, until the paper towels dried the melon balls out. I put the dehydrated melon balls in a bowl filled with vodka (or Everclear alcohol would work) and allowed them to soak, covered, for about an hour. I removed and lightly dried each ball, and placed one into the center of each slightly firm Jell-O shot. Served with whip cream when fully firm. It goes down like water and hits you with a harder punch. You can also put them in a full Jell-O mold or Bundt pan and slice it up for your pleasure. Enjoy!!

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This is the best Creole Seasoning, and overall seasoning, I have ever tasted. First, I tried making it exactly as the recipe says and it was great. For my second time, I adjusted it slightly by only adding 1/3 of the salt (for my dad with hypertension) and replacing a generous ½ tablespoon of the paprika with crushed red pepper flakes. It got unspeakably incredible! Also, I mixed 2 tablespoons of the seasoning with equal parts olive oil and Sweet Baby Ray’s original barbeque sauce plus a dash of brown sugar, mixed them and brushed the mixture over some beer brats on the grill. It was the most delicious barbequed dish I have ever tasted- bar none! My boyfriend also says it is equally delicious on ribs, chicken, Chex Mix and steak fries. Enjoy everyone!

Dianne's Fish Seasoning

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
As written it's definitely 4 stars. To make it 5 stars, I cut the salt and rosemary in half and added 1 teaspoon lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes and 1/4 teaspoon paprika. It gives it a kick and a hints similar to that of Old Bay seasoning. A real keeper!

Blue Hawaiian

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I am a bartender (4 years running) and this is the generic version of this drink. Improved recipe: 1.5 ounce Blue Curacao, .75 ounces Malibu, fill the rest 1/4 full with pina colada mix, and the other 3/4 pineapple juice. It tastes MUCH better. If you need strength taken off the drink, add in a (small side of jigger) of bar syrup/ sugar water.

Wine Jelly

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Amazing jelly. For those of you that got a wine sauce, I suggest that you check the proof of the wine you are using. The higher the proof, the harder it will be for the jelly to set. Alcohol doesn't exactly "set", so the higher the alcohol content, the increased likeliness of a wine "sauce."

True Wisconsin Bloody Mary

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Alright, it's sort of authentic. I bartend in Green Bay and I make mine a little differently. I build mine in this order: Ice, 5 shakes celery salt, Squeeze of juice from one lemon wedge, 5 shakes Worcestershire, 2 drops steak sauce, 3 drops Tabasco, 2 shakes Old Bay Seasoning, *Vodka, Tomato juice (stir after adding or Worcestershire will pool at bottom), 2 fresh olives, 2 shrimp, 1 beef stick, 1 stick Colby-Jack Cheese, 1 pickle, and 1 fresh lemon wedge - That's an authentic Wisconsin brunch Bloody!
