    Ok, so here we go, I will start with a personal favorite, very popular in the place where I come from...

    Ingredients:

    Tequila
    Half a glass of Freshly squeezed orange juice
    Quarter of a glass of Grapefruit soda
    Red chili powder
    Lemon juice
    English sauce
    Tabasco sauce
    Seasoning sauce (like this one --> http://www.mexgrocer.com/2708.html)
    Salt & Pepper

    1. So, first of all get a tall glass previously frozen, put some lemon on the edge, and scarch it with salt, like with the margaritas.

    2. Then pour inside the glass some ice cubes, the tequila, one squeezed lemon, salt & pepper, the tabasco sauce, the seasoning sauce, and the english sauce (worcestershire). Mix with a stick, so you don't ruin the salt scarch on the top of the glass.

    3. In a different recipient, mix the orange juice with the red chili powder, and blend until it becomes red and totaly mixed.

    4. Pour the red orange juice until half of the tall glass, and then fill the rest with grapefruit soda.

    5. Enjoy!

    Single malt Scotch, straight, no ice, maybe a few drops - no more - of water.
    Gin, tonic, and a big slap of Angostura. Ice only on a hot day.

    Yeah, I know, neither is that much of a recipe, but IMO they taste better than most mixed drinks.

    I made one up last night from bottles I received for my birthday, and it wasn't half bad.

    1 oz. vodka
    1 oz. apple liqueur (I had a bottle of Sourz apple liqueur)
    1/2 oz. Goldschlager
    1/2 oz. apple juice
    squeeze of fresh lime juice

    Tastes like a cold apple pie!

    4 big scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream
    1.5 cups of Orange Juice
    2 oz Vodka

    Put into a blender for 5 seconds and pour into a tall glass with an umbrella. Tastes just like a Creamsicle, the ladies love it, and it gets you hammered on a Hot summer day!

    Wait, wait, this is my chance of geeting something straight: In the U.S. lime is lemon, right? I mean, the green, small one?

    My recipes:

    Two-fer
    Two shots of Wild Turkey, four small ice cubes

    Rob Roy with Bourbon instead of Scotch (for those of you that started tending bar in the last few decades, a Rob Roy is three parts Scotch to one part sweet vermouth)

    Wild Turkey Rare Breed straight up

    and when I'm not in the mood for whiskey:

    three to four garlic and jalapeño stuffed olives drowned in three shots of gin (usually Plymouth or Dry Fly--not that cheap crap the kids drink) and a splash of dry vermouth stirred (James Bond is a wuss that likes weak drinks) together in ice. discard the ice before pouring over the olives. drink two of these then enjoy the olives

    No, you don't get it - this thread was about drinking and culture, not about sex and canoes.

    Well, yesno. They're very similar, but lemons are Citrus Lemon, limes are Citrus Latifolia (and some others). Related species, not quite the same thing. They taste similar but different, too - limes are fresher, lemons are more purely sour.

    If you want a real mixed recipe, try this:

    1 part amaretto
    2 parts blended scotch (don't waste the real stuff on this)
    a dash Angostura (optional)
    a good squeeze of lime juice

    Not really my favourite, but it's not bad, and at least it gets rid of the amaretto, which is muck you really can't drink pure. Now if only I had a recipe to make slivovice drinkable...
