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!
