From time to time, I like to play with the Mixilator - the David Embury Random Cocktail Generator. However, I never have all the ingredients to make any one of the recipes generated and hardly even am able to get those ingredients. Here is a random example:
Chill cocktail glass. Prepare as follows:
In pre-chilled cocktail shaker combine
Shake with coarsely crushed ice as if you were suffering a super-acute attack of ague and Saint Vitus dance combined.
Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
Rye whiskey: very difficult to find in France. Chocolate flavored vodka: I've never seen one. Rock candy syrup: never seen either. Ferro-China bitters: I have no idea what it is. Blackberry schnapps: this I can find but it's not common.
So, my question is: has anybody ever tried to implement a recipe from The Mixilator? If yes, is it worth the effort?
Concise and efficient answer. Thank you.
Thank you all for a good chuckle, today.
