Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us
(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#40: Alien Orgasm
3/4 oz Melon Liquer
3/4 oz Peach Schnapps
Combine ingredients in a tall glass filled with ice, then fill the rest with equal amounts orange and pineapple juice. Shake.
Oh great, now we get the money shot? Yesterday's drink scared me by name alone, but this one could actually lead to something drastic. Like having to head over to the Interplanetary Free Clinic afterwards. Once again, into the breach..
This actually had a great taste. There were lots of fruit flavors blending together, and the Amaretto was a nice touch. Just a hint in the background, not too much. It was quite refreshing. This easily was the best drink I have made so far that used pineapple juice that wasn't overly tart. It mixed in really well, and accented the flavors nicely. Plus, it didn't look like something that had leaked out of a toxic was dump.
Watch out for the kick on this one though. The alcohol content is pretty high, but the sweet juice flavors mask it, The next thing you know, you've married some guy named Skeeter and are cooking pigs feet for dinner.
This would be a great drink for brunches, as an alternative to Mimosas. I can really see it going well with an omelet. Any day event would benefit from an Alien Orgasm. Even Baby and Bridal showers, because you don't hear those words enough at those events.
Another milestone! I have finished page 2 of the drinks. Cheers!
