Tonight's special comes to you in the form of a simple request.
"I'd like a Red-Headed, but without the Red-Headed."
To that, you'd probably first check your blades, then the other patrons. An assassination attempt is certainly imminent.
And then the barkeep sighs, and pushes your way a familiar red potion.
This is known to the worlds forgotten as a ZONKER. Strong, sweet, and terribly tasty.
To mix a Zonker, you'll need some Vodka, fruity liqueur, Amaretto, and Cranberry Juice.
1 oz each of Vodka, Triple Sec, Amaretto, and the Cranberry Juice get tossed into a shaker with ice, and a few shakes later, strained into a glass to enjoy.
+ It's certainly fruity, but...
+ The triple sec overpowers like nobody's business.
+ Miraculously, this isn't fruity ENOUGH.
+ There's too much of that weird cough medicine vibe.
This is when The Lady interjects with her own rendition. Consider instead the following:
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Amaretto
2 oz Cranberry Juice
And suddenly, this is pretty lovely. Add in 1 oz of Peach Schnapps, and you're good to go. For my Lady, one shot's worth is enough here, as it is effectively a dessert at this point. You'll sip down six before you notice the buzz, or suck down a high ball glass of the stuff and feel it for hours.
It's simple, sweet, and terribly fruity.
