Kamikaze Cocktail While most twenty-one year olds are throwing back shots, this Kamikaze is a cocktail instead. An easy way to remember this one; throwing back too many will make for a Very Tough Landing. 1-1/2 ounce Vodka 1 ounce Triple Sec 3/4 ounce Lemon Juice Lime Wedge for Garnish Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled two-thirds full of ice. Shake for ten to fifteen seconds. Strain into a well chilled cocktail shaker. Garnish with a lime wedge. Margarita Everyone has their version of the perfect Margarita and their favorite tequila to add to the equation. Here is a basic recipe to build upon so you won’t have to pick up a mix from the corner grocery. 2 ounces Tequila 1 ounce Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
  • 4. Lime Wedge for Garnish Salt for Rimming Rim edge of margarita glass with salt. Combine liquid ingredients in cocktail shaker filled two-thirds with ice. Shake for 10 to 15 seconds. Place ice in margarita glass. Strain contents of shaker into margarita glass. Garnish with lime wedge. To upgrade this margarita use quality tequilas such as Patron Silver or Reposado and Cointreau or Grand Marnier in place of the Triple Sec. Martini 2-1/2 ounces Tanqueray 10 Gin Noilly Pratt Dry Vermouth Lemon Twist Place ice in a martini glass. Drizzle approximately 1/4 to 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth in the ice and set aside. Measure out Tanqueray 10 Gin into a cocktail shaker filled one-third full of ice. Shake or swirl the gin (depending on your theory of “bruising” the gin) for at least fifteen seconds. Your goal is to chill the gin thoroughly. Take the martini glass with vermouth in hand. Swirl the glass so the vermouth coats the inside and pour out. Do not shake the glass until every drop is gone. Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into the vermouth coated martini glass. Take your lemon twist and circle it around the rim of the martini glass before placing it halfway on the edge and partially inside the gin as garnish. Serve and drink while still chilled.
