vodka & oj makes a screwdriver but if you drizzle a small amount of Galliano over the top it makes a Harvey Wallbanger (my husbands favorite drink)

Then there is one (or two) we invented time back way back (just) after the bad time. It does have to be on the rocks since it depends on melting ice to complete the effect.

Crush Depth:
Equal parts vodka and ouzo (they naturally separate).
Pour in blue Curaçao®.

When the ice starts melting you get a clear blue layer and a cloudy blue layer.

Or use red Curaçao for a Cæsar's Blood.

Beautiful looking but yucky tasting.

As an occasional drinker (x364=I don't *drink on my birthday)... "Black and Tan" = requires an ale for the "tan". If one uses lager then it is called a "Half 'n Half" (in dis here town)

satin - I seem to remember the alternative name was Harvey WallClimber (from those that had a few...)

All I know is that one makes my head light and two pretty much makes me pie-eyed and we won't even discuss three.

A New England contribution :
Cranberry juice and vodka -- "Cranberry Fog"

Myself, I'm a "nip and tuck" drinker = one nip and I have to be tucked in for the night!

> and I am one with Faldage-- coke and beer-- Its the worst of two worlds!
I agree

> most of the libations mentioned here are not servered "on the rocks"

Well, pardon me Helen, I forgot how seriously some here take their ebriety, and although the weekend is over here's Cheers, Yamas, Skulle and Prost to all.

and moving onto wine we have Kir and Kir Royale.
Kir is White wine (originally aligote but now any white wine) and Cassis; Kir Royale is Champagne and Cassis.

and linking to the thread on skipping rhymes we have (instead of potatoes) "One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor"
