[livejournal.com profile] kel_reiley reminded me of this post, in which we all shared holiday drink recipes! There was one called TIGER BLOOD. TIGER. BLOOD. AWWWWWW YEAH.

IF YOU HAVE ANY DRINKS TO SHARE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON, PLACE THEM HERE. I SUBMIT--

THE LELAND PALMER

1/2 C HONEY
1/2 C WATER
3 C CHILLED JASMINE TEA
3/4 C GIN
3/4 C LIMONCELLO
3/4 C FRESH LEMON JUICE
1/2 C GRAPEFRUIT JICE
1 C CHILLED CLUB SODA

Stir honey in hot water. Cool. Mix everything. DRINK.

THE ONE-ARMED MAN: ADD LIMONCELLO TO GRAPEFRUIT JUICE OR GRAPEFRUIT SODA.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE, PEOPLES?

And if you are so inclined, this is what I brewed this season:

CRANBERRY LIQUEUR

Combine 2 c water and 1 c sugar in saucepan. cook over medium high heat 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Remove and cool completely.

Food process cranberries until chopped. Combine sugar mix and cranberries in a bowl. Then add 3 c vodka. Jar and secure in cool dark place for 3 weeks, turning routinely.

Strain. Place 1 c sugar and 2 c water in pan and bring to simmer until clear. Add whole allspice, cinnamon sticks, pink peppercorns, cloves and anything else whole you think would rock ass. boil down to 1 cup. Cool, then add to jars and let sit for a millionty years. Strain. Add plain vodka to mellow if necessary. Bottle and give away.

I was told this was great mixed with chilled club soda.
