I love to drink and have a great time, but if you’re drinking at bars—it can add up faster than a stripper can spot a $100 bill. That’s fast!
So when I can’t afford to go out and get inebriated (drunk), I just drink at home and save the money. The internet has a ton of drink recipes and I snatched up 10 money themed drinks.
Maybe I have too much time on my hands, whatever…bring on the booze.
3 Dollar Hooker
1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/2 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/2 oz Rumple Minze Peppermint Liqueur
Stir ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into shot glasses. *Interesting mixture.
Five Dollar Margaret
1 oz Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1 oz Raspberry Liqueur
1 oz Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
1 oz Cream
Shake everything with ice and strain into a sour glass. *Potentially yummy.
Million Dollar Cocktail
1 1/2 oz Gin
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
2 tsp Pineapple Juice
1 tsp Grenadine Syrup
1 Egg White
Shake ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and serve. *I’m not too sure about the egg white, it sounds nasty.
1/3 oz Sloe Gin
1/3 oz Advocaat Liqueur
1/3 oz Cherry Brandy
Carefully layer ingredients on top of one another in a shot glass, in order; gin bottom, advocaat middle, cherry brandy top. * “Carefully layer” alcohol into a shot glass? I’ve never done anything close to that.
1/3 oz Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1/3 oz Irish Cream
1/3 oz Melon Liqueur
Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker, strain into a shot glass, serve. *What’s up with all the liqueurs in these drinks? It’s going to take a lot of these to fuck you up.
Show Me Tha Money
1 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
1/2 oz Absolut Pears Vodka
1 oz Sweet & Sour Mix
Shake in tin and serve. Go for a less tart sweet & sour mix. *Yuck.
1 oz White Rum
1/2 oz Dark Rum
1/2 oz Coconut Rum
1 oz Orange Juice
1/4 oz Lime Juice
2 tbsp Mango Sherbet
1 tsp Grenadine Syrup
Blend all ingredients (except grenadine) briefly with half a glassful of crushed ice. Sprinkle grenadine on top, garnish with fruit, and serve. *It can go either way with this one.
Run for Your Money
1/2 oz Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
1/2 oz Strawberry Schnapps
Pour the strawberry schnapps into a shot glass, add the sour apple pucker and serve. *Great, another pussy drink.
2 1/2 oz Sloe Gin
juice of 1/4 Lemon
3 1/2 oz Ginger Ale
Pour into an ice-filled highball glass. Add lemon-quartered shell and serve. *Or just have a Jack & Coke.
Joe’s Cash Money
2 oz Vodka
2 oz Blue Curacao Liqueur
4 oz Orange Juice
Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into ice filled glass. *Twisted Screwdriver might have been more appropriate. I’m strangely temped to try this one.
If you want to save some money, try swapping a couple nights out with drinking at home.
Have you tried any of these drinks? What’s your favorite drink?
