12 Drinks of Christmas: The Miser Brothers

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  Our staff of Mixologists have racked their brains (and 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".  

Christmas is tomorrow, but we're still plowing through our 12 Drinks of Christmas through the end of the year!  A lot of people celebrate Christmas between now and New Year's Eve, so it still works.

Anyway, we have a two-fer today with the inspiration for our drinks being the Miser Brothers.

Drink 8: Heat Miser

  • 1 oz El Matador Tequila
  • 1 oz DeKuyper Cactus Juice
  • Tabasco Sauce

Mix the tequila and cactus juice and pour into a shot glass.  Add in a dash of Tobasco.

Set off to the side and prepare the next drink.

Drink 9: Snow Miser

  • 1 oz Peppermint Schnapps
  • Whipped Cream
  • Crushed Ice

First pour the peppermint schnapps into the shot glass.

Next you will want to get out your Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine and crush up some ice.

After your arm feels like it is going to fall off from all of the cranking, you should have enough to fill the shot glass the rest of the way.

Add whipped cream to the top, and shoot it back.

Shoot the Heat Miser, and immediately chase it with the Snow Miser.
