Cocktail of the Apocalypse #16 The Four Horsemen

It makes no sense to have a series of apocalypse cocktails without actually having the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Four Horsemen on the Apocalypse
1/2 oz of each of our horsemen
Johnnie Walker, Jose Cuervo, Jack Daniel, Jim Beam,
1/2 oz Jagermeister
1oz pineapple juice
2oz sweet and sour mix

Pour all liqueurs into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake until frosted. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice cubes and add pineapple juice and sweet and sour. Stir, and serve.

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #15 Long Sprint

Let’s face it, a long sprint is something we may all need to do when the apocalypse comes and at the end of it a strong drink may be just the thing.

I offer you the Long Sprint by Alberto Bramucci (Italy) from ‘The Cocktail Book’ Gino Marcialis & Franco Zingales.

1/4 Royal Stock brandy
1/4 Martini dry vermouth
1/4 Galliano
1/4 Isolabella manderin liquer
champagne
candied fruit

Prepare in a mixing glass with ice. Pour into a tall glass and fill with Champagne, decorate we candied fruit. See it’s even got fruit in it.

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #16: Angel’s Delight


Rumour has it that this one bears a disturbing resemblance to drinkable Angel Delight pudding – only boozier and creamier.

1 Measure Double Cream
1 Measure Milk
0.5 Measure De Kuyper Grenadine

Method:

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #15: Ninja Turtle


This one looks like it’s been poured from a barrel of toxic waste which is why it’s utterly perfect for the ninja turtles of the apocalypse… Probably goes well with pizza, too.

Ingredients (serves 1)
1 Measure Hendrick’s Gin
0.5 Measure De Kuyper Blue Curaçao
Top up with Orange Juice

Method:
Half fill a glass with cubed ice then build ingredients in order: De Kuyper Blue Curaçao, then Hendricks Gin and top up with orange juice.

Muddle ingredients together and garnish with a slice of (throwing) star fruit if desired.

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse: #14 The Chastity Flame

by Katemandi, Last Girl on Earth

What’s better than a kick ass role model? A kick ass role model with her own cocktail! Yes, it’s the Chastity Flame, based on the super sexy spy (or do we call them ‘governmental operatives’ now?) created by C. Margery Kempe. I’ll let her tell you about it:

If you want to bevvy up for the apocalypse, here’s a little drink you can try out. It first appeared in the Noble Romance Christmas Bonus Recipe Book. I was inspired by the wise words of one of my literary inspirations: 

“Never despise a drink because it is easy to make.”
~ Kingsley Amis, Everyday Drinking


When I created Chastity Flame, my sexy government agent, of course I had Ian Fleming’s Bond in the back of my head. While working on the sequel, Lush Situation (which draws its name from Richard Hamilton’s piece, of course), I decided that Chas needed a drink just as memorable as Bond’s “shaken not stirred” martini. Et voilá! I give you

The Chastity Flame:

2 measures gin (I recommend Boodle’s or Tanqueray Rangpur)
1 measure vodka ( I recommend Zubrowka, Reyka or Stoli)
A generous dash of bitters (is there any but Angostura that will do?)
Lime garnish

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with plenty of ice, but don’t dawdle or it will get dilluted. Strain the chilled contents into martini glass — or a tumbler if you’re a heathen. Garnish with a lime slice and a shot of lime juice if you like that sort of thing (I do). It should be the color of Chastity’s amber eyes and be rather lethal, but then again, so is its inspiration. A perfect accompaniment for a stimulating book.

Or even the apocalypse!

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #13: Alien Sky

With 2012 about to roll in, we all know there’s an apocalypse of some kind on the way, right? So here’s the perfect drink to see out an alien invasion.

Ingredients (Serves 1)

1 Measure White Rum
1 Measure De Kuyper Cherry Brandy
0.75 Measure De Kuyper Blue Curaçao
4.5 Measures Pineapple Juice
3 Measures Orange Juice

Method:
Shake all ingredients together with ice except the De Kuyper Blue Curaçao.
Strain into a highball glass half filled with crushed ice.
Top with De Kuyper Blue Curaçao (do not stir before serving).

Garnish with something suitably alien shaped.

An easy one to make with the added benefit of having milk in it, thus giving you more calcium for your post-apocalyptic health needs!

1 measure Kahlua
2 measures Baileys original
1/4 pint milk, any type
6 ice cubes

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #11: Dark & Stormy


We’re not at all worried by the fact that all these cocktails seem to demand ice. Obviously getting enough power on to get a fridge-freezer active is going to be one of the priorities of your post-apocalyptic DIY. Unless you’re in the middle of an icy apocalypse then you can just stick the ice-cube tray out the front door…

Ingredients (Serves 1)

Ice
Juice of half a lime
2 measures Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
Ginger beer

Method:

Add ice to a tall glass. Squeeze limes over the ice, then pour in rum and ginger beer, and stir. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Easy squeezy!

Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #10: Absolute Stress

Christmas during the apocalypse can be very stressful… but not so much after a glass of this! (And it’s got fruit in it! You remember what we said about fruit in drinks being healthy!) And we’ve noticed that increasing the measures of the alcohol portions significantly decreases the amount of stress felt…

Ingredients (Serves 1)

1 measure vodka
1 measure dark rum
1 measure peach schnapps
1 measure orange juice
1 measure cranberry juice

Method:

In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, rum, peach liqueur, orange juice and cranberry juice. Shake well. Pour over ice in a tall glass and garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry. (See, fruit!)

Chin chin!
