Happy Hour: Funky Garlic

When PartySugar told me that today was National Garlic Day, I immediately set out to find us a cocktail that uses garlic as an ingredient. And yes, yes, I know it sounds horrible, but done well I bet it would be good - think of a Bloody Mary, that sounds horrible on paper too...

At any rate, I was thwarted - turns out it may be a disgusting idea after all - and could not find any cocktail recipes featuring garlic. I did, however, find a recipe called Funky Garlic that actually sounds sort of refreshing (if not also somewhat terrible). It's a mixture of wine and soda, and it sounds dirty, yet light and bubbly. To check out the recipe (oh and if you know of any drinks that feature garlic, let us know),

Funky Garlic

Sounds gross. And so do drinks made with garlic. This is an entertaining thread, though!!!!

I found a cocktail that uses garlic in it! It's from The New American Bartender's Guide and it's called Garlic and Dill Vodka. Which, by the way, sounds incredibly disgusting to me! But hey, it has garlic in it! Recipe: 1 liter vodka 1 - 2 cloves garlic Several sprigs of fresh dill Half dozen peppercorns (optional) Bruise garlic to release flavor and put into vodka with dill sprigs and a few peppercorns, if you wish. Steep for about 24 hours at room temperature, turning the bottle every so often to circulate ingredients. Check flavor and strain into a new bottle. Store in refrigerator or freezer. Blech!

Never had a Bloody Mary, but I'd at least give this drink a shot! Either way, it has a great name!

I thought I would like a bloody mary, but last weekend I tried one and I didnt like it. Much more over-seasoned than I was expecting!
