The Jessica Rabbit Cocktail

I discovered this Cocktail from a link to another link :) Kind of like I know a guy who knows a guy. But hey, most things you find online are like this, right?

Anyway I was very surprised on how great this Cocktail was and would make a great addition to your next A.M. Cocktail Party.


1 1/2 oz Tequila (I used Reposado)
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 oz Carrot Juice
1 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz. Cilantro Simple Syrup*
3 Slices Jalapeno Pepper

Rub a lime wedge on the outside of a Collins Glass and coat with kosher salt
Add ingredients to a shaker with ice an shake well
Strain into Collins Glass
Garnish with a lime wedge

*Cilantro Simple Syrup. Just make a batch of simple syrup and muddle in a handful of cilantro.

I could not find carrot juice and was not really sure I would like it anyway so I used V8 Juice. I also recommend using more V8 and skipping the Cointreau. Otherwise it was a great morning cocktail and will be a great addition to my next book.

Bloody Mary Mixes

As most of you know that follow this blog or imbibe at MySideOfTheBar I do not like the use of Bloody Mary Mixes. When I see a bar use them I just think they are being lazy. However, there are times when they make sense. When traveling is the main time I use them and yes they are convenient.  As MySideOfTheBar has been on the road for a large part of the last year I thought it would be a good time to share some of the ones I have found that will do in  your travels.

The latest is this

Jack's Smokey Marty Mix - Brought to you by Jack Stacks BBQ of Kansas City. This is a mild mix that in my opinion needs more spice. While it does have a nice flavor and a smoke taste it falls a little short in my opinion. Adding a hot sauce to it could be that answer.

Powell & Mahoney Cocktail Mixer Bloody Mary Sriracha - This is an excellent mix and as you may expect that a nice spice. Also has other ingredients like Worcester Sauce that would expect in a high end Bloody Mary Mix.
