As a follow up to my post last month, I return once again to those thirst-quenching tall drinks of summer. While on their own I find some sodas and colas to be sticky-sweet and unappealing, I will most graciously opine in their favor during the refreshing warm weather months. That is, if used well in a cocktail 🙂
An ingredient like Cola is multifaceted this time of year. Here are two tall drink recipes that call for the use of Cola and various Hiram Walker cordials in the instructions; however, the similarities practically end there.
- 1½ parts ABSOLUT Vanilia Vodka
- 1 part Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps
- 5 parts Cola
Serve over ice in tall glass, garnish with cherry.
Blackberry Twisted (pictured above)
- 2 parts Hiram Walker Blackberry Brandy
- 1 part Cranberry Juice
- ½ part Lime Juice
- 1-2 parts Cola
Pour brandy and juices into ice filled tall glass. Stir and add splash of cola. Garnish & serve.
While unrelated to my post, it just so happens that the Mixoloseum’s Thursday Drink Night theme for this week is Tall Drinks. Unfortunately, I won’t be near a computer that night to watch the action as it happens in the chat room, although I imagine some fantastic drinks will come out of the evening (as per normal!).
I’d love to keep featuring some tall drinks on Cocktail Culture all summer long! So tell me – What’s your favorite tall drink recipe?
