So good he also posted these on his 97.1 KEGL blog--actually he told us "blahg," but it pretty much means the same thing.

Listed in no particular order. "The white dream is my fav," he says.




½ oz. Cointreau

½ oz. Cranberry juice

1 tsp. Fresh lime juice

1 oz. Vodka

Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Easy.


1 oz. Amaretto

1 oz. Heavy cream

1 oz. Vodka

Mix all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.


1 ½ oz. Vodka

1 tsp. Peppermint schnapps

Mix with ice in a shaker and strain into chilled cocktail glass.


½ oz. Crème de cacao

½ oz. Peppermint schnapps

1 oz. Cream

Simply stir with ice and strain into a shot glass


½ oz. Brandy

½ oz. Crème de cacao

1 tbsp. Cream

Pour ingredients carefully in this order: creme de cacao, brandy, cream. Serve in a Pousse cafe glass. On the odd chance you don't have one, find a special glass and use that.
