The original liquid cocaine – the drug

In the mid-1980s, a new form of cocaine emerged on the streets of America. This new form, known as “crack” or “rock,” was a concentrated, potent form of cocaine that could be smoked. Crack quickly became the drug of choice in urban communities across the country, as its effects were more immediate and intense than those of powder cocaine.

In the early 1990s, another variation of cocaine hit the market: a liquid form of the drug that could be injected. This so-called “liquid cocaine cocktail” became popular in some circles because it produced an even more intense high than crack. Unfortunately, it also resulted in a number of overdoses and deaths.

The liquid cocaine cocktail is made by dissolving powdered cocaine in water and then adding other chemicals, such as baking soda or quinine. This creates a solution that can be injected directly into the veins. The effects of the liquid cocaine cocktail are almost instantaneous.

The Alcohol and Cocaine combination that could kill

The liquid cocaine alcohol cocktail is a mix of alcohol and cocaine. It was invented by a group of friends in the early 2000s who wanted to find a way to enjoy cocaine without the negative side effects. They named it after the drug because they felt it gave them a similar high. The cocktail has since become popular among young people and is often used as a party drug. There are a number of different recipes for the liquid cocaine cocktail, but they all typically involve mixing vodka or another clear spirit with coca leaves or powder.
The drink is usually served chilled and can have a range of different effects, depending on the person’s tolerance and how much is consumed. Some people report feeling more alert and energetic after drinking it, while others say it makes them feel agitated and anxious.

Please note that these are potentially dangerous and illegal in most of the world and should be avoided at all costs. And that is precisely why, we now move to the next question, what is the Liquid Cocaine Cocktail then?

The first ever Liquid Cocaine and non-cocaine Liquid Cocaine crowns, both should go to Coca Cola

The no-cocaine alcohol only liquid cocaine cocktail was invented by Dr. John Stith Pemberton in 1886. It was originally intended as a patent medicine, but it became increasingly popular as a recreational drink. The recipe for the drink includes coca leaves, caffeine, and other ingredients. Pemberton’s original recipe did not include alcohol, but it was later added to make the drink more palatable and was sold as his French Wine Coca drink.

Later on, this formula of his that he accidentally mixed with carbonated water, while trying to revise his French Wine Coca formula to make it non-alcoholic, forced by the Temperance movement and the ensuing legislation in Atlanta, is considered to be the first formula of the Coca Cola and should be crowned as the first ever non-cocaine liquid cocaine cocktail, since cocaine was removed from the formula that Pemberton originally invented. While, it’s earlier alcoholic patent medicine version could be termed the first liquid cocaine recipe since it actually contained a type of cocaine, an extract from Coca leaves.

What is the liquid cocaine cocktail that we can order at bars and pubs?

The liquid cocaine cocktail we order at bars does not actually contain cocaine. The drink was invented by a bartender in the early 1980s and is simply a mix of vodka, rum, gin, tequila, and triple sec. This cocktail despite having an implicating name, doesn’t contain any cocaine and the name refers to the potent and the instant hit it delivers, the effect that mimics the effect of the original liquid cocaine drug.

Although there are a couple recipes that are most commonly found across bars and have the most references across the web too, there are several different recipes, each claiming to be more authentic than the other.  One of the reasons there are so many different recipes for the liquid cocaine shot is because the shot is very popular and people like to experiment with it. Also, because it is a relatively new drink, people are still trying to figure out the best way to make it.

Some of the most common recipes invariably use a 151 Proof Rum to deliver that instantaneous hit.

Liquid Cocaine Cocktail

Now, Let’s list the available recipes

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant that increases alertness, feelings of well-being, and euphoria. It also decreases fatigue and hunger. Cocaine is highly addictive and its use can lead to tolerance, dependence, and addiction. The liquid form of cocaine is often used in cocktails because it can be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes in the mouth. This allows the user to feel the effects of the drug more quickly. Liquid cocaine is also more potent than powder cocaine, so it can be more difficult to control one’s dosage.

The non-cocaine namesake is very popular and probably the cocktail’s popularity is an indicator of the potentially dangerous influence drugs like cocaine have on the American society.

Here we list the non-cocaine alcohol only cocktail versions, as expected, and there are several variations of the liquid cocaine cocktail, some as long drinks some as shooters. They are listed here in no particular order of preference.

Liquid Cocaine Shooter

This is the standard and most accepted Liquid Cocaine Shot recipe, it’s the Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps, 151 Proof Rum and Jagermeister  layered shot that everyone is looking for.

Liquid Cocaine #1

Not one of the most widely known recipes of this cocktail, but this variation with Amaretto, Grand Mariner, Southern Comfort and Vodka is a potent drink nonetheless.

Liquid Cocaine #2

This is a twist to #1, not in ingredients, but in the measure of each liqueur and liquor used, if you are in a mood to be adventurous, #2 is for you.

#2 Liquid Cocaine

This is one of the standard Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps, Jaggermeister and Rumple Minze recipes.

Liquid Cocaine #3

This is probably the most accepted of all recipes, the 151 Proof Rum, Jagermeister and Rumple Minze recipe

#5 Liquid Cocaine

This is twist to #1 and with quite a lot of deviation, it’s a potent combination of Southern Comfort, Vodka and Triple Sec with Orange Juice and Grenadine replacing Pineapple Juice.

#6 Liquid Cocaine

This recipe didn’t miss out on the original 151 Proof Rum but it’s neither of the two major variation we have seen so far. It’s a potent mix of Jagermeister, 151 Proof Rum with Crown Royal Canadian Whisky.

Liquid Cocaine #4

This is one potent recipe too. This one calls for a brave heart since it has all the potent liquors and some more, and replaces a 151 Proof Rum with Everclear. This recipe needs Silver Tequila, Vodka, Gin, White Rum and Everclear Alcohol.

Liquid Cocaine (the original)

claims to be the original but doesn’t have the strength, it’s a weaker combination of Canadian Whisky and Bourbon Whiskey along with Southern Comfort, with Grenadine and Amaretto for the flavour.

Liquid Cocaine (the Real One)

Another heir apparent that we don’t consider as that authentic, it does have the 151 Proof Rum but then shifts focus to Grand Mariner, Southern Comfort and Midori and adds both Orange and Pineapple juice along with Grenadine for the seasoning. Although not the real one, but it tastes well along with being a potent drink to try.

Liquid Cocaine – Chicago Style

This is a rather fruity and sweet variation of the Liquid Cocaine and appeals more to women who want to enjoy an Amaretto, Peach Schnapps, Southern Comfort version of the popular cocktail.

Liquid Cocaine – North West Style

this potent cocktail is closer to the Liquid Cocaine #4 recipe above although it uses a 151 Proof Rum instead of the Everclear in that. The North West Style is a combination of 151 Proof Rum, Sloe Gin, Southern Comfort and Vodka and uses Grenadine and Pineapple Juice, making it a brightly lit poison.

Liquid Cocaine 8-Ball

This cocktail is probably the most illegal and drug themed as far as the name is concerned. The 8-ball is a term used to describe an ounce of drugs, typically cocaine. The term comes from the fact that an 8-ball is one eighth of a pound. An 8-ball can also refer to an ounce of other drugs, such as methamphetamine or heroin. This recipe despite being a less potent version of the Liquid Cocaine cocktails, derives it’s name from a very potent derivative of the illegal cocaine drug cocktail.

There are many different types of cocaine cocktails, but the 8-ball is one of the most popular. The name 8-ball comes from the fact that it is typically made with 1/8 of a gram of cocaine. This cocktail is also known as a Poor Man’s Drug because it is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get high. The 8-ball is usually made by dissolving cocaine in water and then adding it to a soft drink like Sprite or 7up.
However, this Amaretto, Rum and Southern Comfort cocktail might be having a potent name, but doesn’t have the strength of several other of the Liquid Cocaine cocktail variations.

California Liquid Cocaine

This Amaretto, Southern Comfort and Malibu recipe of Liquid Cocaine gets its name from, well, it’s easy, Malibu. Although the Malibu Rum is of Barbados origin, Malibu here refers to Malibu, California.
Liquid Cocaine ( Uzi ): The drink is named after the Israeli sub-machine gun, the Uzi. The recipe is said to have originated in Miami in the 1980s. But why Uzi we don’t know.

Liquid Cocaine (Southern California Style)

This is another variation of the California Liquid Cocaine, and this Cream, Frangelico, Malibu Rum, Rumple Minze Or Peppermint Schnapps version uses cream for a change, and the texture is slightly different. Although Southern California cocktails are famous for their farm-to-booze spirit, where herbs, fruits and vegetables are amply used in cocktails since they grow all year round in Southern California, this recipe doesn’t have that signature, but the nutty flavour and the Malibu gives it a SoCal feel.

Liquid Cocaine ( Revised )

Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps, 151 Proof Rum, Jagermeister and Rumple Minze shot recipe that totals to a 3 cl of alcohol of which 0.75 cl is 151 Proof Rum. So this might look like a rather easy shot but that might not be the case.

Originally, Liquid cocaine is a street name for a potent mixture of crack cocaine and alcohol. The exact ingredients vary, but the drink is typically made by combining equal parts cocaine and vodka, rum, or gin. It can also be made with water instead of alcohol. The drug is also sometimes called "lean," "Purple Drank," or "Texas Tea."

In the straight forward, alcohol only cocktail world, there are many versions of the Liquid Cocaine Cocktail. The name usually refers to a drink that is loaded with an overdose of Caffeine

Urban Dictionary mentions a very potent shot that consists of Bacardi151 ( now discontinued ), Jagermeister, and Goldschlager that is called Liquid Cocaine and another variation that has 1 Part Jaggermister, 1 Part Rumplemintz, 1 Part Goldschalger .

The theme of almost all of the cocktails we have here on our database, that carries the moniker "Liquid Cocaine" is same, all of them are potent combinations of several high ABV liquors and liqueurs.

  • Simple Guide to Cocktail Glasswareany-glass

    When there is no specific glass suggested for a cocktail, it's up to you to chose a glass.
    Either you just go ahead and serve using any glass available to you following these simple rules
    A. Go for Tall or Collins Glasses, Highball Glasses or even Hurricane Glasses for cocktails with loads of non-alcoholic mixes, and those that require crushed or cubed ices,
    B. But if your cocktail is aromatic and liqueur based, and has a complex character that must reach the nose use a wide mouthed Cocktail Glass.
    C. Red Wine Glasses for cocktails that have a Red Wine as the base spirit. Red Wine Glasses have a wider mouth and a long stem, so that the wine can be swirled an aerated to release the aroma while the long stem keeps the fingers away and avoid quick warming of the wine.
    D. White Wine Glasses for cocktails with a White Wine base, since White Wines must not be aerated as much as a Red Wines, since they oxidise fast when in contact with air, White Wine glassware, in contrast to the wide mouthed bowl of a Red Wine Glassware, is narrow with a narrow mouth. A White Wine has much lighter and delicate notes and the narrow mouth and less surface area in contact with air helps retain the aroma.
    E. If your cocktail is based on a Sparkling Wine like Champagne then a Flute Glass is more suitable since a Sparkling Wine is a White Wine with a secondary fermentation that produces the bubbles, and the narrow mouth flute prevents the bubbles from escaping.
    F. If it's winter and you are in the mood for some hot cocktails like the Irish Coffee or Hot Toddy, go for the Irish Coffee Glass, it has a heat resistant glass and a handle.
    G. Martini Glasses for Martinis or "Tinis" in general, but since these glasses have fallen off of favour these days, a Cocktail Glass will be good too.
    H. IF you are serving Margaritas, don't look for Margarita Glass if you don't have one at home, Double Old Fashioned Glass or other glasses are more common these days, for serving Margaritas.
    I. If you are the adventurous one, and are serving shots or shooters, of course the Shot Glass is your choice of glass,
    J. Finally, if you are going all out and serving depth charges and car bomb shots, all you need is a Double Old Fashioned Glass or a Beer Mug for the beer and a shot glass to drop the bomb in.
