Today is “Wright Brothers Day” so something aviation oriented is in order. The primary option is an after dinner drink that I first heard about was when going to dinner with Greg Switlik during trade shows.

When going out with Greg there was always the decision of who would pay for pre-dinner drinks, dinner and finally after-dinner drinks. Pre-dinner tended to be the least expensive option followed by dinner. After-dinner drinks were the tab you didn’t want to get stuck with.

Option #1
B-52 An ounce each of Kahula, Baileys and Grand Marnier. Add all three liquors together in a cocktail shaker, than shake her up. The mixture is perfect for two, oversized shots.

Option #2
Blue Kamikaze. Add 2oz. of vodka, 0.75 oz. of blue curacao, and 0.75 oz. of fresh lime juice to a mixing tin with ice. Shake to chill and mix the flavors together, then strain into a martini glass.

Option #3
Anything poured from a 50ml “Airline Bottle”.

  • How many rounds of B-52’s were consumed in a normal night with Greg? Numerous!
  • Is blue Curacao in my bar? No but it’s in François-Paul’s.
