Localized Cocktail (No 3)

Messed about with some ice-cream. Had chocolate ice-cream with Baileys.

Any variation of chocolate-based ice-cream will do

Goood shit. Obviously a lil sweet, but great as a dessert or snack. I’ll call it Bail Out.

You could also use Amarula. Or the different flavours of Baileys (Creme Caramel, Hazelnut, Mint, Coffee).

Stir it up

To add a festive flavour, drop a piece of sweet mandarin orange into d mix. Choc n orange go well together.

Kong hee fatt choy yall!



A new liqueur has been released in the US, called Adult Chocolate Milk. Haha.

Breakfast has just gotten more interesting.

Sexy milk maids at d launch, which i unfortunately couldn't attend

Its tagline is “Invented by adults who dont wanna grow up”. And “Re-taste your childhood” or sumtin. ABV is 20%.

Its supposedly already a favourite among the Hollywood celebrities. Which doesnt mean anything.

Good drink for naughty kids who cant sit still. One sip n they should be chillin.

Reminds me of one of my cocktails, Brown-Brown. The easiest DIY cocktail around. Milo-ais + vodka. Can be enjoyed at your local mamak 24-hours a day – just bring a lil flask of vodka.

On a related matter, am just about to crack open this baby. Havent tried d caramel one before. It should rock.



Baileys Hazelnut


Sure sounds good. Reminds me of that other alco-hazelnut shit i like, Frangelico. Pour it all over vanilla ice-cream. Or drop two shots into a chocolate milk shake. Mm mmm mmmph!! Killa dessert!

Absolutely luv d Frangelico cocktail the bartenders used to serve @ Chill, the Brazillian Monk.

Come 'ere!!

Anyway, the world’s number one liqueur is comin out with a new variant to add to its range of flavours. The new Baileys mix combines fresh Irish cream and triple-distilled Irish whiskey, with a smooth hazelnut flavour (ABV 17%, 1,000ml, shelf-life 24 months).

(Baileys Original is Irish whisky, cocoa nibs, vanilla pods, caramel and sugar.)

Adding flavours to the original Baileys (since 2005) ranks amongst Diageo’s most successful innovations to date, and has been a big hit with consumers. It’ll be available from Nov 1 in travel retail (duty-free) in Europe, and rest of travel retail regions in the new year. With the stronger ringgit, i would recommend buying overseas and not at our shite, over-priced LCCT/KLIA  duty-free.

For Christmas, all bottles will feature a bow, adding to its gifting appeal. So if ur flying there anytime soon, u know what i  want for Christmas.

Or Halloween. Or full moon. Or Friday.


New looks

Three established brands in Diageo went for a make-over.

As of this month, Smirnoff has altered the bottle to emphasize the vodka’s quality and its heritage as a supplier to Russia’s Imperial Court.

Smirnoff No.21 (alcohol-by-volume – 40%) and all its flavoured varieties will have the new look. Diageo has changed the vodka brand’s main icon from a spike to a “Regal Eagle”, which is accompanied on the bottle by a reference to Smirnoff’s supply contract with the Russian Tsars. It displays signatures of Smirnoff alongside the featured crown.

Pyotr Smirnov founded his vodka distillery in Moscow in the 1860s, pioneering charcoal filtration in the 1870s, and becoming the first to utilize newspaper ads to stifle anti-vodka sermons, capturing two-thirds of the Moscow market by 1886. Propaganda ads eh? His brand was reportedly the Tsar’s favorite. When he died, he was succeeded by his third son Vladimir Smirnov, under whom the company flourished.

Its now the world’s best-selling liquor.

As for Tanqueray (ABV 47.3%), the look is more like a cocktail shaker now. The new bottle is taller and more tapered than the original ‘fire-hydrant’ shape, and it also features elements of the brand’s heritage such as the company’s signature and an embossed Tanqueray family crest on the glass. The bottle’s labels have also been changed to give it a more contemporary look. It’s been around for a few months tho.

Tanqueray London Dry Gin was initially distilled in 1830 by Charles Tanqueray in London. Gin is  made through double-distillation of a neutral grain spirit with botanicals added during the second distillation. Its today produced in Scotland. Did u know they had a Tanqueray Malacca Gin?? Discontinued in ’04. Dammit.

The brand recently celebrated 200 years since Charles Tanqueray  was born. Where was da party?? London? How come i wasnt invited??

After 30 years, Baileys (ABV 17%) changed the look some time ago. Am sure u would have noticed the smoother, skinnier looking bottle.

Flavours available are Original, Creme Caramel, Mint, Coffee, Hazelnut and Biscotti. It’s the world’s best-selling liqueur.

Bailey’s (Ireland) starts life in happy Irish cows, all 40,000 of them. They’re happy coz they aint kept in a pen, but get out to graze nine months a year. Their milk is added to Irish whisky within hours, followed by cocoa nibs, vanilla pods, caramel and sugar.

Goes real nice as a dessert, poured generously over vanilla ice-cream.


Thanks buddy!
