Liquid Cocaine (the Real One)
Why do we call a mixed drink a cocktail?MORE
There are several origin theories as noted in Difford's Guide, the two most plausible theories are here
The first relates to cocking up poor quality booze with herbs, bitters and mixes, as Cocktail historian David Wondrich writes “if you had an old horse you were trying to sell, you would put some ginger up it’s butt, and it would cock it’s tail up and be frisky. That was known as cock-tail.”
The second theory states that in an Mexican tavern, English sailors noticed that mixed drinks were stirred with the root of a plant known as cola de gallo, or cock's tail in English. The name came to England with the sailors and then to the USA.

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.
Bacardi 151 Proof Rum
Overproof Rums are Rums with a much higher alcohol concentration which is usually greater than 57.5% but although 151 proof means 75.5% ABV, most Rums with 57.5% Alcohol are labelled as 151.
Overproof Rums are highly inflammable and are usually used in cocktails as a top layer meant to be ignited and burst into flames, rendering a charred flavour to the drink while arousing awe and interest by quite a fire show.
Overproof Rums are not meant to be drank neat or even as a base spirit, the alcohol concentration is too high, but it can add special character to mixed drinks.
Bacardi 151 was a famous overproof Rum and although it has been discontinued in 2016, there are other pretty famous brands like Lemon Hart 151, Hamilton 151, Wray and Nephew White Overproof Rum and Pusser’s Gunpowder Proof.
Note: Gunpowder Proofing a Navy Rum was an old concept, where Rum poured over Gun powder would not wet the gun powder and when lit, the gun powder will catch fire once the alcohol has burnt.
Navy rum was originally a blend mixed from rums produced in the West Indies. It was initially supplied at a strength of 100 degrees (UK) proof, 57% alcohol by volume (ABV), as that was the only strength that could be tested (by the gunpowder test) before the invention of the hydrometer. The term "Navy strength" is used in modern Britain to specify spirits bottled at 57% ABV. - Wikepedia
Grand Marnier is a French liqueur brand. Their most well known product is Grand MarnierCordon Rouge, an Orange flavoured liqueur created by Alexander Marnier Lapostolle in 1880.
It is made from a blend of Cognac brandy, distilled essence of bitter orange and sugar. It is 40% ABV or 80 proof in USA.
Grand Marnier is a French Brand of liqueurs. The most well-known product is the Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge, an orange flavoured liqueur made from a blend of Cognac, brandy, distilled essence of bitter Orange and sugar. The Cordon Rouge was created in 1880 by Alexander Marnier-Lapostolle. It has 40% ABV.
Grand Mariner is full of rich, complex flavours and intrigues of the Cognac, and makes cocktails taste. A Grand Mariner is a blend of Cognac and Triple Sec, it's not a traditional Curacao, it's a similar orange liqueur.
Grenadine is a common non-alcoholic pomegranate syrup with a characteristic deep red colour. It is a very popular cocktail ingredient, used for its pomegranate flavour and more for its ability to add a reddish to pink tint to a cocktail.
The name Grenadine originates from the French for pomegranate, which is grenade.
Grenadine is not subjected to regulations like alcoholic beverages are, and there are no region specific formulae any more, and thus manufacturers often replace pomegranate with blackcurrant juice and other fruit juices while retaining the same flavour profile.
Many producers now use artificial ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, water, citric acid, sodium citrate, sodium benzoate and food grade red colour along with natural and artificial flavours.
Midori is a sweet, bright green coloured, muskmelon flavoured liqueur produced by Suntory, a Japanese multinational brewing and distilling company.
Midori is typically 20% to 21% Alcohol by Volume, and is extremely sweet to drink straight, and is thus usually used in cocktails.
Sours are often combined with Midori to balance out its sweetness.
Midori mixed with Vodka and 7-Up makes a cocktail that tastes similar to Mountain Dew.
Southern Comfort is an American, fruit flavoured whiskey liqueur. Originally created by bartender Martin Wilkes Heron in New Orleans in 1874, the brand has gone through closure during the Prohibitions and transitions and transfer of ownership.
Spirit Historian Chris Morris describes the original recipe of Southern Comfort in an episode of The Thirsty Traveler titled "A River of Whiskey"
Heron began with good-quality bourbon and would add: An inch [2.5 cm] of vanilla bean, about a quarter of a lemon, half of a cinnamon stick, four cloves, a few cherries, and an orange bit or two. He would let this soak for days. And right when he was ready to finish, he would add his sweetener: he liked to use honey. - Wikipedia
In the United States, Southern Comfort is available as 42 US proof (21% ABV), 70 US proof (35% ABV), 100 US proof (50% ABV), and 60 US proof (30% ABV) in Australia. Varieties including additional flavorings, such as lime and caramel, were introduced by Brown–Forman in the latter years of their ownership. These were discontinued by Sazerac - Wikipedia
Orange Juice is an excellent source of Vitamin C, one cup contains twice the daily recommended value. Vitamin C supports the immune system and helps fighting the common cold. The folate in Orange juice supports healthy fetal development. It is low calory and thus is already a qualified alternative to cola fizz in your cocktail if you want to keep your drinks acceptably healthy.
Orange Juice being citrus and naturally sweet and sour, it literally goes with almost any liquor, and of course Vodka being neutral, the best known pairing is with Vodka. But goes well with Dark Rum too, and you get the Planter's Punch, mix it with Champagne and you have made a mimosa, or with tequila to make a tequila sunrise.
Rich in antioxidants, this juice pressed from the pulp of the Pineapple is a good protection against cell degeneration, It contains bromelain, a group of enzymes known to reduce inflammation, improve digestion and boost immunity. In drink mixing, there is nothing like the tropical flavour of pineapple juice to add that tropical freshness and nuance to a cocktail.
In drink mixing pineapple having a fruity tropical aroma pineapple juice is a good companion for tropical fruits such as mango, banana, passion fruit, and also pairs well with oranges and grapefruit juice.

However, we have embarked on a journey of manually updating the relative strength of cocktails, their flavour profile and in the future aim at providing approximate calories per drink too.
Blue Tick Project:We aim at manually validating and verifying each cocktail in their current context and mark them as valid, where, a blue tick would mean that the recipe has been verified and is 100% accurate while an orange tick would mean the recipe has low confidence.
Where as a grey tick would mean that the recipe has not yet been manually validated or verified recently.
