Eurgh! Orange is the devil's drink, foul stuff.

Drink your Southern Comfort neat, or use coke if you must dilute it.

One of the few spirits I drink.

Brandy doesn't give me a hangover. It does make me aggresive though :oops: I don't drink more than one or two since I found that out.

That reminds me when you mentioned Brandy, why not try Brandy and ginger ale? I also have taken of late to having brandy in coffee.

I like Baileys in a coffee, it seems so natural.

Baileys and lemonade, no really its great.......when the lemonade hits the baileys a percentage of it froths up and becomes similar to a desert moose, it then seperates, so you can then eat the moose with a spoon on the top, and then when thats gone, drink the remaining baileys in the glass.

I got my girlfriend addicted to it over christmas cos she didnt believe me it would work but it did lol. Note, you have to use proper baileys, the cheap alternatives arnt thick enough to froth up enough and you end up with a little moose and a crappy taste.

Give it a go, you know you want to.

Yep, that's most peoples reaction when told about it, but the orange compleatly absorbes the Sothern Comfort, it all becomes very smooth and easy t drink way to much if you're not carefull.

Must be whole natural fresh orange juce though, not fizzy orange or concentrate!!

There are some pretty cool ideas here, admittedly there are some variations of cocktails that I’ve never heard of before that sound tasty. We should compile the retro gamers cocktail list along with coming up with imaginative names for them.

How about this one.

Fill a slammer glass with tequila and vodka and then drop some cream in it.

It's called a Sperm...... ( Hay baby, fancy a shot of sperm? )

Oh and there is a retro named drink already...

Pour peach schnapps into a shot glass, and add vodka. Add amaretto until vodka turns to a light brown, and serve.
It's called a ZOOL.
