donated Crown Royal

Postby wsojenna » Wed Nov 14, 2007 6:35 pm

I'm organizing a large event for work, and we've received a donation of two cases of Crown Royal to go towards our complimentary cocktail hour. There will be a mixed crowd and I need to find a recipe for a Crown Royal cocktail that will be appealing to most, but (and here's the kicker) contains no other alcohol since we don't have any room in our budget at all. Any suggestions for a crowd-pleasing cocktail recipe that uses no other alcohol?

For starters, besides the obvious (Crown on the rocks), Crown Royal
and Ginger Ale is a good one, some prefer a slice of lemon in it as well.

If you can squeeze any extra money, a Manhattan is a very nice drink..but you need Sweet Vermouth (very inexpensive) and a splash of cherry juice to go along with a cherry or two.

Sour mix is very inexpensive as well, so you could also offer Whisky Sours. Good Luck.

The Crown Royal Cocktail (with apologies to JM):

To two parts Crown Royal, add one part Crown Royal. Take one ice cube and throw it in the sink. Add a splash of Crown Royal to taste (to the glass, not the sink).

It does taste better with Caol Ila, though.

:roll: :lol:

Got myself a cocktail kit last week and been having some fun.

The basic Mint Julep will work well, although you will need some Angostura bitters.

And theres the Canadian Cocktail, but needs Orange Bitters

And as mentioned Ginger ale / beer in a long glass with some ice.

There maybe some more in the cocktail section.

Sorry Matt but a Mint Julep requires bourbon not rye. You cannot possibly call anything without bourbon a Mint Julep. It just isn't so.

My brother-in-law drinks Crown and Coca Cola but I have never had it. Personally I like my Coca Cola unadulterated thank you.

Here is a website with some recipes http://www.drinksmixer.com/cat/972/ for crown that I pulled off of a goodle search.
