Talk about convenience - some friends and I have been in the process of trying out new recipes every weekend to help determine what I will be serving for a New Years get-together. New cocktail recipes! That counts right? Let's say it counts.
We know of some classics that will be in the mix, so to speak: Melon Balls, Bloody Marys, Mint Juleps, Sidecars. Surely no one will object to their delicious, refreshing presence. While researching we also came across some losers whose names should not be mentioned here.
Then we discovered a drink that is bafflingly tasty and disgusting at the same time. The lights drop, the curtain opens, and out walks…
2 ounces Cola
2 ounces Vodka
1 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
Some may look at these ingredients and, right away, know what will happen when you mix them together.
To my knowledge, there is not a way to make this look appetizing. Out of four close-ups, this is the best I could do. It is fearsome to behold.
In any case, the DeMink, like the Cement Mixer or Irish Car Bomb, (if you take too much time with it) curdles. In the back of my mind I knew this was going to happen but we ran with it anyways and actually drank the cosmic horror pictured above and…
It didn't actually taste half bad. The texture was horrible though. It was sort of like a chocolate flavored cottage cheese.
The drink wasn't so good as to cause me to have an epiphany about finding wonderful things in unexpected places or anything like that, so I guess my point is that I do not recommend this drink.
Do not try a DeMink.
