A Tale Of Cocktails #13

Brain Hemorrhage


1 oz Peach Schnapps
1 tsp Baileys
2 drops grenadine

Taste: 9
Look: 9
Cost: 9 7
Name: 10
Prep: 9
Alcohol: 6
Overall: 8.8 8.4

Preparation: Pour the Schnapps into a shot glass.  Pour the Baileys in afterwards, very slowly.  Add the two drops of grenadine.

General Comments: This is absolutely gorgeous - a lovely mix of sweetness, creaminess and kick, particularly if the Schnapps and/or the glass (preferably both) have been chilled.  It's certainly one of those shooter cocktails which is dangerously moreish.

Plus, it looks awesome (for a horror fan like me, natch); it has a great name, which works as both a description and a disclaimer; it's quick to make; and it's sufficiently strong (and cheap) to satisfy the most ardent booze-hound.  Brilliant.

Update: Whoops!  I used the wrong method to calculate the price.  I've reduced the score accordingly, but it's still pretty cheap, all things considered (you can make about about a dozen of these from a single bottle of Archers and four tablespoons of Baileys).
