Tasty Libations

I had a really tasty drink last night while watching Justin perform at open-mic night at Portugalia. I can't remember what the bartender called it. Maybe Benadicta-something. Or maybe something else completely. The point is, it was delicious and I wanted to share the recipe (or at least my hazy version of it).

Here's what you do:
1) Fill a pint glass with ice
2) Fill the glass 3/4 full with Vodka
3) Add some passionfruit nectar
4) And a splash of grenadine

It's really refreshing. Not too sweet and you can hardly taste the alcohol. Dee-lish!

Since I'm sharing one recipe, I might as well share a couple more (and these ones I found online so I actually have the correct measurements).

Chip Shot
(It's like Coffee with Bailey's, only better!)
2 oz. Hot Coffee
1 -1/2 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
3/4 oz. Tuaca

You know the drill... And don't forget the whipped cream!

Skinnygirl Margarita
2 oz of Tequila
Tiny splash of Triple Sec
Juice of four Fresh Lime Wedges

Combine all ingredients over a glass of ice and garnish with a lime wedge. (Go easy on these. They sneak up on you fast!)
