So, I'm needing to drink the left over alcohol I have (waste not want not!). I've obviously already drank the good stuff, but people are coming over tonight expecting drinks and this is what I have.

My question, good OcUK is what on Earth can I make with the following:

Zubrowka Vodka
Normal Vodka

Pussers Rum

Chivas Regal
Black Grouse

Courvoisier

Davys Port x 2
Mulled Wine (this can go down the sink)

Absinthe x 2
Sloe Gin
Vermouth
Kahula
Buckfast

Obviously I can run out and get mixers. All I can think of is to make a big batch of White Russian and maybe put an Absinthe float on them?
The rum could be used to make Cheeky Vimtos but it's quite expensive.

Of course, I could just throw it all in a punch bowl, with a heap of ice and hope for the best. But I imagine that the best would be awful.

So, inspire me!

Couple of suggestions, which will require you get the following:

Lemons, Oranges, Bitters, Grenadine, Eggs, Sugar (to make simple syrup)

Manhattan

Chivas 50ml
Vermouth 20ml
Bitters 3 dashes

Stir with ice, serve neat in martini glass, garnish with Lemon peel.

Whisky Sour

Whisky 50ml
Lemon Juice 50ml
Syrup 50ml
Egg white x1

Shake without ice first, then with ice, then strain into a whisky glass. Garnish with Orange peel.

El Presidente (Usually golden rum, not sure how Pusser's will work)

Rum 50ml
Vermouth 25ml
Cointreau 25ml
Grenadine couple drops
Bitters 1 dash

Stir with ice, strain into glass, garnish with flamed orange.

Sazerac (Supposed to be Rye, but one of the Whisky's might work)

Absinthe Wash
Whisky 60ml
Syrup 1/2 tsp
Bitters 3 dashes

Stir with ice, strain into whisky glass.

Illgresi, superb! I didn't even think about Manhattan's or Whisky Sours! Shame on me!!

The Sazerac sounds promising as well. I'll skip on the El Presidente, can't be doing with buying Cointreau but I'll head to Tesco just now and pick up some bitters.

Thanks.

Ahh baws, I read Courvoisier and thought Cointreau!

Sazerac was also historically made with Cognac, so you could try both.

Kahula, vodka and milk with a splash of whiskey. White Russian style beverage. Splash of cream. Made some at new year, I chundered. Good night overall.

Or something like my Nan's famous rocket fuel, 8/10ths vodka, 2/10ths everything else. Bit of fruit juice to finish.
