If you like tropical drinks, learn how to make a Fodder cocktail. At first glance, the name "Fodder Cocktail" just doesn't sound so appealing, does it? When people think of fodder, we usually associate it with grass, hay or some other food source for a farm animal. In which case, a Fodder cocktail would be some grassy substance used to get pigs and cows tipsy. But, lets not jump to conclusions. If you mix it correctly, your Fodder cocktail will actually be a quite tasty alcoholic beverage that those of us of the homo sapien genus species would enjoy. So, here's how you make a Fodder cocktail.
Ingredients for a Fodder Cocktail:
- One oz Vanilla Vodka
- One oz Mango Vodka
- 1/2 oz Raspberry Nectar
- 1/2 oz Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz Heavy Cream
- Just a thought. In order to put one of these tasty creations together, you need the right ingredients. Cheap vodkas taste like rubbing alcohol so get a decent brand. Unless, of course, you want your Fodder Cocktail to taste like fodder.
- The "cocktail shaker" Professionals use cocktail shakers for mixing cocktails. If you don't have one, you can use a water bottle with a sealable top. It doesn't really make a difference. The cocktail police wont bust down your door for not having one.
- Mix it up. Add crushed ice, along with the rest of the ingredients to your cocktail shaker. You want to shake the mixture up for a good twenty seconds or so. This way it'll be nice and chilled.
- For the snobs. For those of us that like certain appearances, your Fodder cocktail should be served in a chilled cocktail glass. For added effect, throw a lemon wheel, not wedge (this isn't a beer), on top of your concoction.
