Drink List (Recipes)

Eastern Time Zone: New York

Everyone knows about the Manhattan, but there’s actually a cocktail named after each of the five boroughs, including this one for The Bronx.
The Bronx
2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. dry vermouth
1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
1 oz. fresh orange juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake, strain into a chilled glass and garnish.

Central Time Zone: Detroit

The most famous is probably The Last Word, but there’s another big one whose inventor just passed away, which we could do instead: The Hummer.
The Hummer
1 1/2 ounces white rum, preferably Bacardi Light
1 1/2 ounces Kahlua
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
Add all ingredients to a blender, add two ice cubes and blend until smooth.

Mountain Time Zone: Umm…

Well, since we already have most of the ingredients, we could go with a Colorado Bulldog, which is basically a White Russian with cola.
Or: Mountain Dew was originally invented as a chaser for rough whiskey, so we could do a shot of whatever whiskey—followed by The Dew (even though it was invented in Tennessee…).
Or: we can say SCREW IT and just make this a wildcard round.
And so we did.

Pacific Time Zone: Los Angeles

The Moscow Mule: this one was actually invented in LA, as a marketing stunt to help three businesses clear out respective inventory: Smirnoff Vodka, Cock’n Bull Ginger Beer, and copper mugs.
Moscow Mule
6 ounces Cock’n Bull Ginger Beer
2 ounces of vodka
1/2 of a fresh squeezed lime
Build over ice. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
