Great Mixed Drink Recipes for College Students

Great Mixed Drink Recipes for College Students

Beer and shots make up much of the drinking of college students as well as the average drinker. However, many simple mixed drinks are tasty, full of alcohol, and cheap. These drinks can be used at student parties, small get-togethers, or just for personal enjoyment. Working with students as essay writers, we’d like to emphasize that careful moderation of alcoholic drinks can make any situation fun, but it’s always important not to drink too much or to drink too regularly. Alcoholism is no fun at all.

Porch Crawlers

Porch crawlers are a type of drink that uses a lot of alcohol to create a perfect tasty drink for a large party. These should never be used for personal use. The recipe calls for too much alcohol for one person to safely drink in a night or even a few nights.

Ingredients

  • Two cans of frozen pink lemonade
  • 10 bottles of beer
  • 26 ounces of gin
  • 26 ounces of vodka

Directions

Start by getting a punch bowl out and placing it on a cupboard. Mix all of the ingredients into the bowl and stir them with a large spoon. Stir until the frozen lemonade has melted and mixed well with the rest of the ingredients. Place ice hunks in the bowl to keep it cool. Place a plastic ladle in the bowl and serve in plastic cups.

The Zone Trooper

The Zone Trooper is a personal drink that is perfect for people having a drink or two at home with friends or by themselves. The recipe makes enough for one drinker but can be made over and over again as the recipe calls for small amounts of liquor. Always carefully moderate how much you drink in a night, even with a small drink like the Zone Trooper.

Ingredients

  • One ounce coffee liquor
  • Two ounces tequila
  • Two ounces espresso
  • Serrano chili pepper

Directions

Place ice into an eight-ounce drink glass. Mix all of the ingredients into the drink and stir with a small straw or spoon to mix the ingredients fully. Cut a small tip off of a fresh Serrano chili pepper. Rub the end of the pepper along the edge of the rim to give the drink a spicy taste. Place the pepper on the rim of the glass for a garnish. Serve.

The Flaming Lamborghini

The Flaming Lamborghini lives up to its name by being a very sleek and smooth drink that is perfect for any party where heavy drinking is going to occur. It is a hard drink so it should be drunk slowly. It requires a specific drinking process, as the alcohols are not mixed all at once. This makes this drink perfect for drinking games.

Ingredients

  • One ounce of Kahlua® coffee liquor
  • One ounce of sambuca
  • One ounce of Blue Curacao liqueur
  • One ounce of Bailey's® Irish cream

Directions

Place a cocktail glass on the table and pour the sambuca and the coffee liquor into the glass. Place a small red drinking straw into the glass and place it in the center of the drinking area. Get out two shot glasses and pour the Baileys and Blue Curacao into the glasses, one drink per glass. Place the shots next to the cocktail glass. Drink all the liquor in the cocktail glass as quickly as possible and pour the two shots into the glass. Continue drinking until you finish the shots.

Pour the sambuca and Kahlua into a cocktail glass. Pour the baileys and blue curacao into two separate shot glasses on either side of the cocktail glass. Set light the concoction in the cocktail glass and start to drink through a straw (this drink should be drunk in one). As the bottom of the glass is reached put out the fire by pouring the baileys and blue curacao into the cocktail glass and keep drinking till it's all gone.

The Strawberries and Cream Drink

The Strawberries and Cream drink is a much more mellow drink that features a very sweet taste dominated by the natural tastiness of strawberries. This drink is perfect for drinkers who want a drink that they can sip and enjoy. This isn’t a drink designed for heavy drinking, making it perfect for office parties or any other social gathering where drinking is not the main purpose.

Ingredients

  • One ounce Strawberry Schnapps
  • One and a half tablespoons of sugar
  • Two ounces of half and half
  • Two strawberries

Directions

Place all your ingredients into a blender. Leave the strawberries out. Crush several ice cubes using a rolling pin and towel. Place two cups of crushed ice in your blender and blend the ingredients at high speed. Once it is fully blended, add the strawberries into the mixture. Blend again until the strawberries are fully blended. Pour into a nice parfait glass. Cut a strawberry in half and place it on the rim to garnish the drink.

Conclusion

Many other mixed drinks can be used to bring taste and style to any party. Experiment with different types of alcohol and drinks and make up new drinks. Not every recipe is going to be good but coming up with a new drink recipe is a lot of fun and rewarding.
