MxMo gets twisted

We’re less than a week away from the next round of Mixology Monday. This round is hosted by Tristan at The Wild Drink Blog, and Tristan has chosen Superior Twists as the theme. What’s that, you say? Here, I’ll let Tristan explain it:

This month’s Mixology Monday is all about twists on classic cocktails, that for one reason or another do an even better job than the drinks upon which they are based.

This could be as simple as a classic Margarita with a dash with a special touch that completes it, or maybe as complicated as a deconstructed Hemingway Daiquiri with a homemade rum foam/caviar/jus/trifle. It might be taking a classic like a Manhattan and using Tequila instead of Bourbon?

Got it? Good –it’s actually quite simple; we all have embellishments and adaptations we’ve made to our favorite cocktails that work to both personalize the drink and push it, in our humble opinions, over the top of deliciousness. This MxMo, tell us what yours is.

To participate, simply blog about your drink by Monday, April 13 (don’t forget to link back to Tristan’s blog and the MxMo site, and please include the MxMo logo), and let host Tristan know about it by e-mailing tristan [at] Include your name, your blog, the URL of your post, and — by Tristan’s request — “your favorite song to dance the twist to.”

So let’s hear it folks — what’s your favorite twist on a classic?

  1. I had a Cuba libre served to me at the lounge in the Bellevue Lucky Strikes that I thought was a simple great twist. They froze Coca Cola (i believe they were using the mexican pure cane sugar Coke but could be wrong) into one large round ice cube – set it in a nice rocks glass. They then poured ten cane rum over the top, squeezed fresh lime and that was it. The coke slowly melted and you still got to appreciate a fine rum. Simple but cool.
