Bottom Shelf Mixology Rejects

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

As a special treat today, I have a sort of behind the scenes look at our "creative process" for you.

The following recipes were deemed by me and Russ (and our unpaid intern) to be so foul that we couldn't put them with our other original creations.  That actually says a lot about them, because our other original creations are mostly terrible.  These, however, are the demon drinks we somehow summoned from the depths of the abyss.

The Paula Deen
  • 4 oz. Peach Schnapps
  • 4 oz. melted butter
Mix well.  Serve in a mason jar.  Rimming the glass with ham drippings is optional.

Vacationing Scotsman 
  • 2 oz. Trader Joe's Scotch
  • 6 oz. grapefruit juice
Shake scotch and grapefruit, pour over rocks. Serve with tiny umbrella.  Now, you can pretend to be a Scotsman on vacation in Florida no matter where you are.

The Gilles De Rais 
  • 2 oz. Chartreuse  
  • 1 pouch of Capri Sun (any flavor)
Mix the Chartreuse and Capri Sun and serve in a sippy cup.

  1. Can you substitute margarine for butter in the Paula Dean? Best served at Thanksgiving. Please pass the turkey. Wham ya‘ll. Now, in the case of the Vacationing Scotsman, one should always have their bagpipes with them and wear accessorized kilt and plaid pouch thong. I think I saw Scots drinking one of these drinks in a Highlander movie or was it mister Scott on the Enterprise .You know, the episode where he drank the alien under the table! No, wait, it was in a Lassie movie.Where are you Lassie , we need you now?
