Tispy Tuesday: Orange-Violet Cocktail

Tipsy Tuesday

This light, refreshing cocktail is just the remedy for any winter blues.  In fact, the hint of orange, the faint florals, and the subtle herbiness might just convince you that it's warm outside.  Happy drinking!

  1. How long has it taken you to build this reservoir of liquor and liqueurs? I feel like I could be out an entire paycheck if I stocked up to make your delicious cocktails! Suggestions for staples to have around the house?

    1. You make an excellent point. It would indeed be quite pricey to try to go from zero to fully-stocked bar overnight. I would guess that it has taken us a good 5 years to stock up to this point (with obvious refreshes along the way). I say find a good base liquor or two that you like (e.g. Ketel One Vodka or Hendrick's Gin), and then start to add in liqueurs over time. Liqueurs (for the most part) don't expire, and you use such a small amount in drinks that they last forever. My favorites are St. Germain (elderflower); and Domain de Canton (ginger); Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Grand Marnier (all variations of orange). From there, it's just mixers and fruit and maybe adding in some new liqueurs that come along. I stay away from most juices as mixers and usually just use fruits and club soda or experiment with Italian sodas.

  2. Do you find that yours last longer, too, because you're making so many new cocktails so often that you're not revisiting some of the flavors/bottles as frequently?

    1. I'm sure that helps. If we're spreading our usage over more bottles, each bottle lasts longer. It also doesn't hurt that I drink maybe one cocktail a week at home.

  19. I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at ( dr.okoli.spell.temple@gmail.com ) or whatsapp +2347031991061
