Grouvee Food: Brews

You gotta finish the drink though otherwise you gotta set up therapy sessions for the remaining cream.

I definitely read this as 5 pints of vodka and was going to send some help.

I was trying to make some seasonally appropriate cranberry drinks, but as I learned from experience, cranberries are chock full of pectin which allows them to turn into a jam/jelly with no other stabilizers. Meaning if you try to make a cranberry syrup, it can pretty easily transition into preserves. If you have made a cranberry drink, I’d love to give it a try!

Fruity is basically a guaranteed good drink, but I feel the need to go heavier in the winter.

Pomegranate Cosmo

2 oz vodka
1 oz pomegranate
0.5 oz lime juice
0.5 oz triple sec
0.5 oz cranberry juice
Shaken with ice then strained

I had a nice froth that I lost while straining and pouring into a less than ideal glass. Still a tasty tart drink.

You don’t look anything like your picture!

Why strain it though?

So I guess two reasons-

  1. The recipe said to, and I am an obedient dog
  2. I would like to not have big chunks of ice in my drink

Now I know it takes me roughly 15 to 20 seconds of shaking to get my drinks diluted and mixed properly. So I could game out roughly how much ice I need for that much shaking. I could use some crushed ice too. IDK I’ll test and get back to you!

I made Pomegranate Margaritas. Yes, I bought pomegranate juice.

3 pt pomegranate juice
3 pt tequila
2 pt triple sec
1 pt lime juice
1 pt agave
Shaken with ice

I really like this. The sweetness of the agave balances out the tartness of the pomegranate. It’s a dessert, but it is a dessert I like.

I’ve been making a Citrus Smash recently to use up my leftover white rum and citrus.

Here’s my rough recipe-

1.5 oz white rum
.5 oz orange liqueur
1/2 lime
1/4 lemon
.25 oz agave
Sprig of thyme
Muddle ingredients
Shake with ice
Double strain into chilled glasses with fresh ice

I wanted the thyme to cut the acidity of all the citrus and it does, but not enough. Maybe I’ll cut out the lemon and add a timid fruit like a strawberry, blueberry, or blackberry. I still think it is worth a try,and it is easy to adjust for your tastes.
