Cease-Fire Cocktail

More drink experiments this weekend, no big surprise there :)

I noticed over the span of the evening the many ethnicities of friends coming and going from my house for samples. Egyptian, French, British, Indian, Italian, Persian, Irish, Russian, Israeli, German, Armenian.

Then I noticed the different religions. Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Catholic, Protestant, Presby, Pentacostal, Agnostic.

Why is it that we can all get along? I don't know, but we do, maybe we just appreciate our diversity. In any case, we dedicated this drink to a sustainable cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hizbollah.

HEU Tara models the Cease-Fire Peach Fizz

Cease-Fire Peach Fizz

  • 1 1/2 Ounce Absolut Apeach (Peach Vodka)
  • 1 1/2 Ounce Peach Tarragon Syrup
  • 1/2 Ounce Lemon Juice
  • 2 Ounce Champagne

  • Peach Tarragon Syrup
  • 2 Peaches, sliced
  • 2 C Water
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 2 Sprig Tarragon

  • 1 To make syrup bring syrup ingredients to a boil, cover, remove from heat and steep for 2 hours. Strain then refrigerate.

    2 Assemble: Add vodka, syrup and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake, strain into glasses, float the champagne on top and go.

    (thanks to Ryan for the champers suggestion)

    We also wanted to send out a warning, in case anyone is thinking of escalating hostilities in the Middle East. Don't. If you do we will mix up batches of these and drop them over your country. Your people will be drunk, like silly drunk, like Israelis and Hizbollah skipping hand-in-hand to the Syrian border, dropping trou and mooning smugglers kinda drunk. Not to mention the hangovers and morning munchies that will follow.

    We have the suppplies.
    We have the knowledge.
    Don't make us use them.

    OR, better yet, I have friends from Dallas meeting me in Vegas for Labor Day...catch a flight with them and we can have these little Cease-Fire Cocktails for four days...and then stumble around the Vegas strip...doesn't that sound like fun? LOL

    LOL, youtube, that is exactly what I was thinking. I have seen some very unfortunate revelations there. Noone is safe from cell phone videos :)
