4 oz Champagne
1/3 oz Gin
1/2 oz Tangerine Schnapps

Hmm, have not tried it ....not my typical choise of ingredients..but it may be good...finding "tangerine Schnapps" might be difficult and how often would you drink it afterwards?

4th of July cocktail

1 1/2 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce triple sec
1/2 ounce sweet & sour
1/2 ounce blue curacao
1 dash grenadine

Mix all ingredients, except grenadine, in a shaker and chill. Serve in a martini glass. Add grenadine.

I had some Zone tangerine vodka once and it was terrible. I would rather squeeze the juice from a tangerine and dump it into some regular vodka it was that bad!

You like those too? I was drinking a bunch of those last night.
I also had a few that were a variation of those...They were one part bourbon to two parts bourbon and then I added an ice cube or two and omitted the last bourbon.

We are going to barbecue chicken and pork shoulder steak tomorrow. I''m not sure how many will show up. I plan on having a few Baby Saz Old Fashioneds while grilling.

No fireworks this year. But we will be doing some shooting. I've got a bunch of .454's and .44 mag loaded and a five gallon bucket of 12 ga.
1 1/8 oz loads and 7 cases of clay pigeons. Also going to help a buddy of mine mount a scope I'm selling him on a K-31 (7.5mm X 55 Swiss) the funky detachable side mount. I couldn't get him to drill and tap the receiver. Collectors, they never want to ruin a gun's "collector's value".:rolleyes:
