Hump Day Quickie Cocktail #12: Gary’s 50/50!


Happy Wednesday, everyone!

This week’s quickie cocktail is a favorite of ours, extremely delicious, and just about as easy to make as they come. Perfect, right?

So come inside and learn all about Gary’s 50/50!

When you were growing up, did you ever have a 50/50 bar? Or a Dreamsicle? Or an Orange Julius? All of these things are essentially orange mixed with vanilla ice cream, and all are delicious. So, why not make a grown-up version, right?


You should note that the recipe for this drink came straight from the mind of GaryAtTheBar, so address your thank you cards appropriately.

For Gary’s 50/50, you will need:

  • 2 oz vanilla vodka (we strongly, strongly suggest using Stoli Vanil)
  • 2/3 oz Grand Marnier

That’s it! We told you it was a quickie cocktail!

Once you manage to pull together your ingredients, grab your jiggers, cocktail shaker, and martini glass.

Combine your 2 oz vanilla vodka with your 2/3 oz Grand Marnier in your shaker glass. Be careful not to add too much Grand Marnier, if you do the drink will be too sweet.



Now fill your shaker tin 2/3 full of ice, pour in your ingredients, secure the shaker glass, and sh-sh-shake for 30-60 seconds!



Now strain that deliciousness into your martini glass, and you are ready to go!

Sometimes it really is just as easy as that.


Now sit back, relax, and enjoy!


Cheers, everyone!
