I interested very much for compose overpowering drink last summer. I try many variations of Hurricane (from 2 oz to 8 oz of rum), Mai Tai, Fog Cutter… But I missed one interesting drink - Scorpion. Is modern classic cocktail was invented somewhere in California (it is right?). It is very refreshing taste and effect like scorpion sting (but no deathful). Unfortunately I don`t have time for good investigation of this cocktail.

Sangre de Agave

This cocktail was found on my favorite imbibers blog - The Cocktail Chronicles some weeks ago. Paul`s description of this cocktail is so intriguing and compositions seems me very interesting. Unusual combination of heavy rum
and reposado tequila with creme de cassis and lime (Paul`s limes were lousy… hm-m-m-m… my favorite words for describing bad quality ungredients) promise interesting taste.

45 ml reposado tequila (Sierra Reposado Gold)
15 ml dark, heavy rum (Angostura 1919)
20 ml fresh lime juice
15 ml creme de cassis

Admirable! Very rich and interesting taste. But relatively to Angostura 1919 rest ingredients are lousy :) may be except lime…

Sambuca Coffee Frappe

Sambuca is sweet and strong anise and elderberry-based liqueur from Italy. It is one of my favorite liqueur for drink straight, but cocktails with sambuca is so rare. This simple cocktails is very delicious and refreshing afterdinner drink.

This is an absolute delight that adds a little color and orange flavor to your classic Martini thanks to the blue curaçao. Like the Diamond Martini, one of the characterstics of this cocktail is that the gin and cocktail glass are both frozen.

  • 2 dashes blue curaçao
  • 2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin (or other premium gin), frozen
  • lemon twist for garnish


  1. Chill a cocktail glass.
  2. Add a couple of dashes each of dry vermouth and blue curaçao to the glass.
  3. Pour in the gin.
  4. Garnish with the lemon twist.
