The test tube challenge
I'm not very good at applying nail polish. Maybe I need more practice.

In other news, I got a Christmas present yesterday! No, it's not early; it was a package that must have travelled via surface mail, as it took weeks to get from the US to here.

A set of test tubes! Imagine going to a party and having cocktails and shooters served to you in a test tube... They're really cool, so now I think I shall have to undertake a project to make a rack for them. We've talked about the idea of getting test tubes for drinks, and I know Theresa had looked around for some, but I truly had no idea what to expect when opening the box. A very pleasant surprise.

Your challenge:

The test tubes hold more than a normal shot glass (I'm yet to measure how much), but less than a cocktail glass. Your challenge is to reply to this post with a cocktail suggestion. It could be a semi-potent cocktail to sip, or perhaps a shot that may or may not fill the tube. Be creative!

You need to serve things like squashed frogs and brain hemorages in them :) They would look suitably scary in a test tube :)

I need to find the exact recipes again, but one of the key ingedients is advocaat which forms a lovely gloopy blob in the centre of the shooter, when some grenadine is dropped through it, it looks very impressive :) ewwww!

I'll dig them up and let you know!

Squashed frog:
Pour Midori then Advocaat in glass. Add a few dashes of grenadine and then float Bailey's on top.

Brain Hemorrhage:
Fill a shot glass 3/4 full of peach schnapps, add one or two drops of grenadine, then slowly pour in the irish cream (NOTE, gloop it in, don't pour a layer like you would normally do.... this is why advocaat is often a better choice than Baileys, but tastewise, Baileys wins). The shot should look like a brain floating in formaldehyde with a drop of blood at the bottom. It should look pretty gross but the taste is awesome.

Thanks for the recommendations. :-) I knew of the Brain Hemorrhage, but Squashed Frog is new to me. They do indeed sound suitable for test tubes.
