If you are not too full from eating all of the Best Food Nebraska has to offer, lets get down to cocktails. Cheers to some history and to some memories of college fun.
1. Add 1 ounce vodka, 1 ounce Amaretto and 1 ounce Mindoro into a cocktail glass filled with ice.
2. Stir well. Add a splash of cranberry juice and a splash of 7up. Stir slightly to mix. Enjoy your adult version Kool-Aid. Oh, yeah!
3. Looking for some history with your cocktail? Stop by Glur’s Tavern located at 2301 11th St in Columbus, Nebraska. The tavern served its first drink in 1876. Glur’s Tavern does not have a website but for more information and event calendars visit their Facebook page.
1. Add 2 ounces vodka and 2 ounces tequila into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Stir well.
2. Top with a dash of Grenadine. This is usually prepared and consumed as a shot. I am sure there are many Huskers Blackout shots enjoyed on the college campus. My college drinking are way, way, way past me. Okay, maybe not that many ways but, I added more alcohol and more ice and enjoyed it as a sipping cocktail. Have you had a Husker Blackout shot?
