    There will be no muddling, blending, or layering involved in this new cocktail.

    I’m thinking that it should be Hennessey and Protein powder over ice.

    no muddling,mixing or layering? that’s not very CF. I was really hoping that you could make that chipotle infused martini! Does shaking count?

    Namaste my brother.

    I think it should be some sort of layered triplet that starts smooth as the first layer goes down and then has a wicked kick at the end.

    Perhaps something tooty fruity at the top and goldschlagger (sp?) at the bottom. Just something nasty to help you meet Pukie.

    Chad –

    I’m thinking rum based. Tequila too many calories, vodka too common (cosmos, martinis, do we really need another one?).

    Whiskey is tempting…because I like it.

    Any way, here’s a Rum recipe you could easily create as a punch:

    1.5 oz Captain Morgan
    1 oz Stirrings Mango Mix
    .5 oz Stirrings Pina Colada Mix
    Shake vigorously
    Strain into an iced Collins glass or chilled martini glass
    Garnish with Stirrings Coconut Crunch Rimmer

    Almost like a health drink!

    Very tasty!

    Now we need to name it?

    Chad, would Courvoisier be more Oaktown appropriate?

    1/4 bottle “perfect protein” 2 blocks
    2 oz vodka 2 blocks
    six almonds on the side 2 blocks

    For those of you who are interested in cycling for mass and fat loss at the same time, see my blog today:

    Pay attention to the rest scheme, it is just as, if not more important than anything else.

    Yeah Max, you know what’s up!!!
    Way to keep it in the zone dude!
    May i suggest we substitute the vodka for, say…tequila?

    Sangria or Rum Punch (tart, not sweet) or some sort of infused vodka (pineapple, maybe?)

  10. angela September 20, 2007 at 6:40 pm

    2 parts Hpnotiq (To keep it real)
    1 part Pineapple juice (For fruitiness.)
    1 Crushed Mint Leaf (To keep it Fresh, Ah!)
