Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Magic: The Gathering cocktail)
Ingredients:½ oz. Hpnotiq1 oz. Blue Curacao½ oz. Bacardi 1511 oz. Sweet & SourOrange peel
Directions: Add ice and water to a Martini glass to chill the glass. Add all ingredients to a mixer glass with ice and stir well. Dump the ice out of the Martini glass and strain the drink into it and garnish with an orange peel.
A note from the creator:

Jace, being the most sought after Planeswalker, is one that had much thought put into his cocktail creation. Jace has control over the mind and to symbolize this I used the idea of Hypnosis, an ability to delve deep within the conscience and sometimes allow it to be manipulated. The idea of Hypnosis made me think of one ingredient, Hpnotiq. The Hpnotiq adds a very flavorable taste to the cocktail along with just enough Sweet & Sour to give it that bit of tang it needs. Given the fact also that his power is over the mind, I chose to also add some Bacardi 151 to add to its potency.

This is the first post of a series of MTG inspired drinks, created and photographed by the talented Spirit Cocktails. Check out their page for more Planeswalker cocktails, as well as more information about Jace’s character.

Almost wish I still played magic. Nicely done.

Here’s an awesome summer recipe. Super refreshing and tantalizingly delicious :)



Cucumber Green Tea Mojito
Ingredients
1 ½ Cups light Rum
4 Limes, more for garnish
20 mint leaves
1 Cup brewed green tea
1 Cucumber, sliced and more for garnish
¾ Cup Sugar
¾ Cup Water
Club Soda


Yield: 4 mojitos
Total Time
10 minutes
Prep time
5 minutes

Cook time
5 minutes


Recipe Type:
Cocktail

Main Ingredients:
Cucumber, Green Tea, Mint, Rum

Diet:
Vegan


1. First we are going to make a cucumber simple syrup. Combine the 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small sauce pan along with the one cucumber. Warm it over a medium-high heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved–this makes 1 cup total simple syrup.
2. Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, strain out the cucumber and transfer it to the refrigerator to chill.
NOTE: You might want to make more than just one cup. This syrup would be great in many beverages, like a limeade. The general rule for simple syrup is that you need 75% of both sugar and water for whatever measurement you want. Since I wanted 1 cup total for this recipe, I used 3/4 cup of each.
3. Make your green tea but make sure to chill it before using it in this cocktail. You don’t want to serve your guests a warm mojito, right? I am assuming that you are going to share this four-serving recipe with others. Am I wrong?
4. Add five of the mint leaves to a cocktail mixer and the juice from half of a lime, then muddle the mint. Now, don’t beat the mint up. Muddling is about releasing the essential oils of the herb into the drink. You don’t want to go all Ike Turner on it.
5. Now add the remaining juice from that lime, a heaping 1/3 cup of rum, 1/4 cup of green tea and 1/4 cup of the cucumber simple syrup. This is going to be a very smooth mojito, by the way, and very refreshing. Play with the green tea and cucumber measurements to take it in different directions. Or just exclude one? You cannot go wrong.
6. Mix and serve over ice with a splash of club soda, cucumber slices, more mint and a lime wedge.

Cogniac and orange liquers have so many uses. I’m not particularly a fan of any of these big names. When you work in the field, you tend to find those hidden gems that save you a pretty penny and have surprising quality. Ask your local store if they have any suggestions :)

Absolutely perfect for the sweltering summer heat (especially in Florida). My mouth’s watering already :)
Tequila Watermelon Popsicles
Ingredients:

1/4 cup water 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 cup watermelon juice (from about 1/2 a small watermelon) 1 lime, zested and juiced 2 tablespoons tequila

Directions:

Combine water and sugar in a microwave safe container or glass measuring cup. Heat on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture is clear. Set aside to cool. To make watermelon juice, roughly chop watermelon. You’ll need about 3 cups of chopped melon to produce about a cup of juice. Run melon through a food mill (if you have one), or crush and then strain through a fine mesh sieve.
Combine watermelon juice, sugar syrup, lime juice and zest, and tequila in a small bowl or pitcher. Pour into popsicle molds. Insert sticks and freeze until solid.
