Retrieved by popular demand from the comments of Episode 30, here’s another Schmoetail recipe:

2 oz. Reposado Tequila,
1½ oz. Triple Sec,
3 oz, Sweet & Sour Mix (Mr. & Mrs. T is the best, believe it or not),
2 oz. or so 7-Up,
2 tsp. Bar Syrup or Sugar or Cane Sugar,
Half of lemon and lemon slice,

Fill tall glass with ice.  I mean a tall glass.  Lots of ice cubes.  Put at least one lemon slice in amongst the ice.  Squeeze half a lemon into shaker along with some ice.  After you are done squeezing, place the poor little pathetic looking juiced half-lemon into the shaker as well.  Take my word for it.  Shake everything but the 7-Up in the shaker.  (Schmoe has to admit he once—just ONCE—shook with the 7-Up inside and it took all his might to keep the shaker from exploding with energy generated from the carbonation.)  As you pour into the tall glass (remember the tall glass?), pour some 7-Up into the glass at the same time—just a couple ounces.  This can save the whole need to stir if you pour together since the glass is so tall and filled with so many ice cubes and you may want to get right to enjoying the drink as soon as possible.  Sip and enjoy, preferably out on a pool deck, in the sun, or the shade, or something like that.

On the North Coast, we also enjoy inside, during the winter months, which is about eight of them, while we pretend we are outside in the sun, wearing sun glasses, on vacation, listening to Buffett, and enjoying our refreshment.  It doesn’t take much to get us doing that.  Anyway, back to the drink.  It is refreshing and surprisingly much like the fresh lemonade you get at fairs in the summer, with one difference, our concoction has tequila.  I imagine that you can probably use rum or something like that.  Possibly a lemon or lime essenced rum or vodka, that is, if you are not man enough for tequila.
{Based on a few tequila/lemonade type recipes out there}

North Coast Concoction of the Week

2 oz. Best Damn Tequila You Own (Patron is good),
1 oz. Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice, chilled,

Pour tequila into a cabillito.  Top with chilled lime juice.  Drink.  Have another.  It is even better if the tequila is chilled.  Quick.  Easy.  Smooth.  Effective.  Starts the night out right.  Enjoy before entering a concert or movie.

    As requested, here are the recipes for the drinks appearing in our recent video.  We hope to add more to this list as we come up with them.

Christmas Tequila
1 fifth Blanco Tequila,
1-2 small boxes Raisins,
3-4 sticks Cinnamon Sticks,

Prepare at least three months before you plan on drinking (i.e. you may use Labor Day as a guide to concoct for Christmastime or Winter Solstice or New Year’s or Guys’ Shopping Night or any other of the appropriate December holidays).  Use your favorite brand of tequila.  Real tequila.  The 100% de Agave stuff.  Blanco.  Silver.  Whatever your brand calls it.
    Open the bottle and pour some out into a clean and worthy receptacle to be retrieved in a few moments.  Drop in the raisins and the cinnamon sticks.  Re-fill the Christmas Tequila bottle with whatever was poured out earlier.  If not all fits, it’s your lucky day!  Shoot it down in your favorite manner to celebrate the moment.  Date the bottle and even number it with the Julian date if you so desire.  Close, put in very back of liquor cabinet, and let it rest at least three months.  Plan party around the three month mark and share with friends.
    Terrific sipping neat, chilled from a shaker, or over ice.  Try rimming your glass of choice with cinnamon and sugar.  Fits into a Cinnamon Girl smartly.  Also goes great in egg nog, especially the farther down the bottle you go.  Try other variations.  What the heck?  It’s the Holidays!

Schmoe Nog
1½ oz. Christmas Tequila,
4 oz. Egg Nog (from dairy section of supermarket is fine),
½ oz. Hot Damn Cinnamon Schnapps (optional),

Pour egg nog into crystal cup.  Poor tequila into the egg nog and stir.  Enjoy this sweet treat.
Cinnamon Girl
2oz. Christmas Tequila,
1/2 oz. Orange Juice,
1 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice,
1/2 oz. Cointreau,
1 Cinnamon Stick,

Rim glass with cinnamon sugar
Place cinnamon stick in glass

VIDEO: A Visit from St Nicshmolas

    As promised, Schmoe brought his Christmas tequila over for us to sample.  I got to see a matinee of Spamalot earlier in the day, but arrived well in time to record the taste testing session.  We included it in the feed as a special holiday bonus and also have it here as a Flash Video file.

    If we’ve been good little boys and girls, perhaps Schmoe will share his drink recipes.  And, if we’re lucky, maybe we can hear his clinking bottles in the air as he travels from house to house dispensing holiday cheer.
