    You can substitute Drano if you really want to.

    I'll have one of those

    How do you make key lime shooters?

    1-shot Bailey's Irish Creme
    1-slice lime

    Squeeze lime into Bailey's, mix quickly until thickened to consistency of cooked oatmeal, gulp down quickly. AKA "Concrete Mixer"

    That is sure a simpler recipe than mine Danno. will have to try that. I made them like this....


    1 oz Licor 43® liqueur
    1/2 oz white rum
    1 oz sweet and sour mix
    1/4 oz Rose's® lime juice
    1/2 oz half-and-half

    What is this mixing of ingredients? I know nothing of this custom. The most complicated drink I make for myself is a Martini; shake gin with ice, pour into glass.

    Sorry, got the names mixed up. Yours is a different drink than mine. Too many drink combinations, not enough words to describe them.

    Too little, too late, but I like to sub Grand Marnier for triple sec...in small quantities, of course.
    I like pie!

    Ok, one more bit of advice to add to this very important thread: Do not play kings with screwdrivers or tequilla sunrises. Man I felt like crap this morning...and this afternoon.
