Laser Beam Cocktail

Thanks to Joe Rouse for his post yesterday about the Laser Beam Cocktail which he dedicated to myself and a few other bloggers.

Here's Joe's recipe...

Laser Beam
1 fl oz (30ml) silver tequila

1 fl oz (30ml) Jack Daniel's

1 fl oz (30ml) amaretto

1/2 fl oz (15 ml) triple sec

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake. Strain into an old-fashioned glass. Drink at once and call the Tillerman in the morning about upwind sailing tactics.

Of course, being a suspicious kind of guy I had to check whether Joe was just spoofing us. A quick Google confirmed that there is indeed a real cocktail called a Laser Beam. Jennifer Oulette who writes a fascinating blog called Cocktail Party Physics (well fascinating if you are a geek like me) has some Physics Cocktails in her sidebar including this version of the Laser Beam which looks to have a lower Gillette rating than Joe's Laser Beam. (You didn't know that the Gillette is a unit of measurement of Laser output power?)

Warning: may result in amplified stimulated emission.

1 oz Southern Comfort

1/2 oz Amaretto

1/2 oz sloe gin

1/2 oz vodka

1/2 oz Triple sec

7 oz orange juice

Combine all liquor in a full glass of ice. Shake well. Garnish with orange and cherry. Serve to attractive target of choice.

Of course the guys at Absolut Vodka have to have their own version of the Laser Beam which contains ice cream and raspberry puree and looks like a girlie drink to me. Definitely has a lower Gillette rating than the Joe Rouse Laser Beam.

Finally I would like to recommend to Joe these Laser Cocktail Parties.

The thought of Joe wearing a bikini is rather frightening...

But Joe does seem to have obsessions with individuals who wear that garment, and with Lasers. That's why I thought that party would appeal to him.
