10 cocktails for nurses


4. Red Cross (aka Cranberry and Vodka)
2 oz. vodka
5 oz. cranberry juice

Pour vodka and cranberry juice into shaker. Fill a highball glass almost full of ice cubes and dump ice into shaker. Shake well and pour drink into a highball or martini glass. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge. (You can add a little kick by coating the rim of the glass with sugar).

5. Hypervolemia (aka Dirty Martini)
2 oz. gin or vodka
1 tbsp. dry vermouth
2 tbsp. olive juice
2 olives

Place an ice cube and a small amount of water in a cocktail glass. Place in freezer for 2 to 3 minutes. Fill a mixer with all ingredients including garnish. Cover and shake hard 3 to 4 times. Remove cocktail glass from freezer, and empty. Strain contents of the mixer into the cocktail glass, include one of the olives and serve with a mysterious smile.

6. Liver Transplant (aka Long Island Iced Tea)
1 part vodka
1 part tequila
1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1½ parts sweet and sour mix
1 splash Coca-Cola®

Mix ingredients together over ice in a glass. Pour into a shaker and give one brisk shake. Pour back into the glass and make sure there is a touch of fizz at the top. Garnish with lemon.
