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

GF7

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?

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!

Sometimes it really is just as easy as that.
