Thursday Drink Night!

7th Hour

Last night sealed the deal on a new tradition in the cocktail community. For the second time, countless bloggers and readers found themselves in the Mixoloseum Chat Room sharing cocktail recipes, creating new ones, and imbibing into the wee hours of the night.

What are the rules?

  • Show up.
  • Come up with a crazy cocktail idea.
  • Watch as it’s tweaked, discussed, and more than likely completely changed.
  • Mix it up along with everyone else and share your thoughts.
  • Consume (or dump down the drain) and repeat with a new cocktail.

The Results

We ended up with several new cocktails worthy of scribing in the books. Give them a try and share your thoughts here or in the chat room.

The Procrastinator

  • 1oz Jamaican dark rum (used Coruba)
  • 1oz 151 Demerara rum
  • 1oz lime juice
  • 3/4oz falernum (homemade)
  • 3/4oz orgeat (homemade)
  • 3 dashes Fee’s orange bitters
  • 1 whole egg
  • club soda to top

Shake like a crazy elf and double-strain into an ice-filled pint glass. Top with club soda.

Gabriel and I were both concerned about the 1 1/2oz of syrup in this beast, but it turned out to be just the right amount. The recipe could use a tweak or two, but overall I loved it. I haven’t had many tiki drinks with eggs, let alone whole eggs, so it was a treat.


  • 1 1/2oz rye whiskey
  • 3/4oz Benedictine
  • 1/2oz Absinthe
  • 1/2oz Fernet Branca

Stir with crushed ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Despite its name, this was one of the favorites of the evening. The combination of Fernet Branca and absinthe warrants further exploration.

The 7th Hour

  • 1 1/2oz bourbon (used Buffalo Trace)
  • 3/4oz Aperol
  • 4oz ginger beer (used Reed’s)
  • orange slice, for garnish

Build over ice and chuck in an orange slice with flair.

The chat lasted seven hours last night. This was the final cocktail (pictured above) of the evening and maybe my favorite of the night.

If you’d like to see the full list of cocktails (that we can remember), head on over the Mixoloseum blog. And more importantly, stop what you are doing right now and:

    Was the 7th Hour really the final cocktail, or just the final cocktail worthy of remembering? Jerk. :D

    That was the last one I consumed. Did anyone try your suggestion?

  3. DoodNo Gravatar says:

    I think I was the only one foolish (or sober enough) to mix it. I just enjoy righteous indignation.

  4. *sigh* That’s 10am Friday for me; the wife may look at me funny…

    I logged in at 6.30 when i had my breakfast before off to work..and was immediately asked to come up with a cocktail…
    At 6.30 my brain is not working but this was one of them:
    1 oz Cachaca
    1 oz Mango liqueur
    Lemon juice

    Muddle orange and simple, add the rest and shake, strain and pour over crushed ice.
    Name? don`t know. Name it!

  6. i usually dont drink on week nights but for this i would make an exception.

Kaiser Penguin is a cocktail blog featuring original recipes, homemade ingredients, classic cocktails, and tiki drinks.

Why on Earth did you name your blog “Kaiser Penguin?”

It is a well-known fact that penguins are members of high society and enjoy fine cocktails. Our very own kaiser penguin would like me to mention that he also enjoys various treats from the sea.
