While comparing tastes in alcohol Katie asked the question well what is Cherry Kirsch anyhow?
Ah, the memories. From the parties at Michigan State to the late night Meijer runs to find it, nothing beats a 90 proof “Cherry” Coke. I have Derek to thank for the introduction and Amy for carrying on the tradition. If you’re looking for a strong mixed beverage that doesn’t taste like a cocktail then this is for you.
Not as overdone as Jack & Coke, or Rum & Coke, not a fruity concoction like Sex on the Beach, nope this a unique beverage its base ingredient I have only ever seen in Michigan.
Of course, my days of drinking until saturation are behind me, but on those celebratory occasions it’s fun to introduce folks to something that appears new & refreshing.
And it’s a good chaser for Mind Erasers & Dead Nazi shots.
UPDATE 5:10PM – Got a quite a few questions via e-mail so let me sum up:
Mind Eraser Shot – this is a shot containing 1/3 Kahlua, 1/3 Vodka & 1/3 Tonic Water. The shot is layered not mixed. Add ice then slowly pour Kahlua, Vodka then Tonic. Remember NOT to mix the shot and slurp quickly through a straw.
Dead Nazi Shot – a little simpler to make this is simply one shot of Jagermeister topped off with Rumplemintz. You can mix 50-50 if the Jager is too strong. This shot is also known as the Burning Nazi. Oh and don’t let anyone fool you into using any brand of Peppermint Schnapps instead of Rumplemintz. It is not the same shot.
