Cocktails in the Fall

Here it is the end of summer and Fall is in the air. 8 days, 5 hours, 32 minutes, and 24 seconds until college football kicks off the 2009 season. Not that I'm keeping track or anything. This is my favorite time of the year! In honor of this auspicious occasion, I'm embarking on a weekly adult beverage recipe blog that honors the teams of the SEC and the ACC -- the ones I'm interested in anyway.

For all of my friends in the great state of Georgia, I'm going to get UGA and Georgia Tech out of the way first thing. These are in no particular order so don't read anything into it...

Georgia: The Mocha Bulldog

1 oz. KahlĂșa Mocha
1 oz. Stoli Vodka
1 oz. cola

Combine ingredients and serve over ice in a tall (Collins) glass.

Georgia Tech: Nutty Vodka Stinger

1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Amaretto
1/2 oz. White Creme de Menthe

Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake and strain into an old fashioned glass filled with ice.

It's a long season so pace yourself! I think I'm starting with the Mocha Bulldog... it's less expensive! I won't reveal my team, but I'll leave you with this...

Roll Tide Roll!!! Okay, I lied...
