Hurricane Ike

Sometime early Saturday morning, Hurricane Ike is foretasted to be hitting the Houston area. Because of this, I may not be availble after then depending on the circumstances. The Keepers High Council has my phone number, and I will try to keep everyone updated.

I also plan on blogging about my experiences on my LiveJournal. You can reach it by following this link:

If you have a LJ, friend me, and I will friend you back.

Wish us luck!

Recipes for our next storm party…

1 1/2 oz. Absolute Ruby Red vodka
1/2 oz. vermouth
Prune juice

Combine vodka and vermouth in cocktail glass. Fill remainder of
glass with equal parts Clamato and prune juice. Stir. Drink. Ask next-door neighbor,whose oak tree blew over and crashed onto your roof - even though you'd warned him for months to uproot it, if you can use his bathroom. Repeat.
1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. rum
1/2 oz. bourbon
1/2 oz. gin
Sweet-and-sour mix
Splash of fruit juice

Combine vodka, tequila, rum, bourbon and gin in a tall glass.
Fill remainder of glass with sweet-and-sour mix and splash of juice. Stir, then
garnish with an inverted drink umbrella. Drink during peak storm
hours, and vow not
to believe anyone who tries to tell you the hurricane that
flooded your
garage and destroyed your shed was just a Category 1.
1 oz. cinnamon schnapps
1 sugar cone

Pour the schnapps into the sugar cone. Every time you hear a TV
weatherman say, 'cone of probability,' bite off the end of the
cone and down the shot.
If you hear Jim Cantore say it, drink two shots consecutively.
(they should
change this to the 'Cantore Zone'... damn him. Have you ever
noticed that,
despite all the cone of probability talk, if Cantore is parked
in front of your house your *ss is toast?)
2 oz. Midori
2 oz. rum
1 scoop vanilla ice cream

After your home loses power, combine Midori and rum in a cocktail glass. Add a scoop of the vanilla ice cream that is melting in your freezer. Stir and drink through a straw.
1 1/2 oz. Goldschläger
1 1/2 oz. apple brandy
1 pack Sugar in the Raw

Combine Goldschläger, apple brandy and sugar in cocktail glass. As you drink, seriously contemplate moving your Yankee *ss back to NewJersey where it belongs.
1 1/2 oz. rum
5 oz. Jolt Cola

Combine ingredients in a cocktail glass. Drink while trying to
figure out
how the heck you're supposed to go two freakin' weeks without
television and AC.
2 oz. Kahlúa
2 oz. Baileys Irish cream
4 oz. rum

Serve in a 6-ounce glass and laugh-cry deliriously as the mess
spills all
over the countertop.
2 oz. Blue Aftershock
4 oz. Sprite

Combine in a cocktail glass with crushed ice you received after
waiting in
line for three hours at a mall parking lot. Take a deep breath,
sip and
scream like a little girl when the cold beverage hits your
tongue. Repeat.
1 oz. Jack Daniel's
Splash of sarsaparilla
Rock salt

Load both barrels of a shotgun with rock salt. Climb to the
roof of your
house with gun, bottle of Jack Daniel's and can of sarsaparilla.
Fill shot
glass with Jack and splash of sarsaparilla. Watch for looters.
When you spot
one, blast his ass with rock salt. Drink shot. Repeat.
1 oz. Goldschläger
1 oz. Rumplemintz
3 oz. Jim Beam
Splash of vermouth

Combine Goldschläger, Rumplemintz and Jim Beam in an empty soup
can. Add
splash of vermouth. Drink. Remove chain saw from garage and
attempt to cut
up fallen tree limbs in yard. Ask neighbor to drive you to
hospital when it
all goes horribly wrong.
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1 1/2 oz. vodka and Midori
1 1/2 oz. vodka and Galliano
1 1/2 oz. vodka and grenadine

Pour each ingredient into a separate shot glass. Serve one to
yourself and
three other people. The person with the clear shot of vodka
drinks first.
The person to his right drinks the Midori shot, and so on. If somebody
drinks out of order, develop a quick case of road rage and beat
the living
crap out of him.
1 1/2 oz. Curacao
2 oz. pineapple juice
Splash of lime

Combine ingredients in a leaky paper cup and serve. Wait six to
eight months
for someone to repair the cup. If you're impatient, hire an
unlicensed, out-of-state contractor to do the job for an
exorbitant sum and pray he
doesn't hurt himself in the process.
1 oz. Southern Comfort
2 oz. sloe gin
Tonic water

One week after the storm has passed and your neighborhood is
still in ruins
with no sign of help on the way, combine Southern Comfort and
gin in a
cocktail glass. Fill remainder with tonic and add a dash of Angostura
bitters. Serve with a nut brownie. Before drinking, raise the
glass and say
the toast, 'Doing a heckuva job Brownie'
