The Big Red K.O.
How hard did this kick your butt?
You probably shouldn't be drinking this much... it had been a bad day.
I don't really measure this when I make it, I guess it depends on what kind of red wine you're using and how you want it to taste.
Chambord, if you've never had it before is a cloyingly sweet raspberry liqueur that you use to flavor champagne. I drink it straight because I don't give a crap.
Tart cherry juice is tart, not sweet, and it's not very nice to drink straight. Though it stimulates melatonin production (The sleep chemical) so sometimes I drink it straight anyway. Why? Because I get in and one in the morning and I don't give a crap.
I don't drink red wine very often, mainly because I'm a lightweight. But when I do... whew, adding it to this cocktail makes me slip into a coma. And right now... yup, you guessed it...
I don't give a crap.
- 2 oz Red Wine
- 2 oz Chambord
- 3-4 oz Tart Cherry Juice
- I put the wine in first and the liqueur second, then the juice. Doing it that way is an old habit from bartending school that never quite died.
- Once everything is in the glass, give it a quick stir. It's ready to drink, and you should be seeing stars within 10 minutes. I recommend you already be ready for bed by the time this hits your lips. Don't say I didn't warn you.
If for some reason this doesn't do the trick, you can always use my emergency back-up plan!
LOL Sweet dreams.
