So I’m not a big drinker but I recently found a cocktail called an Esmeralda (though there are a lot of cocktails using that name). Anyway the cocktail that I found has Tequila (1.5), Angostura (Dash), Lime Juice (1 oz) and Honey (1 tbsp). I know it’s not related to Hugo’s Esmeralda but it sounds interesting. Though I have to wonder what would a cocktail inspired by the Hunchback Notre Dame Characters be like? Makes me wish I knew more abou t mixology.
I guess a “Frollo” would be dark, bitter & maybe with a hint chocolate (though we could just make a Mad Monk*), an “Esmeralda” would be Fruity (or maybe we should call it a “Gypsy Girl”), and a “Phoebus” would be some kind of beer-like drink (he doesn’t strike me as the cocktail-type). I have no idea what a Quasimodo, Clopin, Gringore, Djali or a Fleur de Lys** would be like.
What do you think? What would a Hunchback inspired Cocktail be like? Someone out there must know more about mixology than me. ^^
*A Mad Monk is Frangelico (Hazel) (1 oz), Peppermint Schnapps (1 oz) hot chocolate, hot coffee and whipped cream.
**Actually there is a Fleur de Lys cocktail, it’s Stoli Raspberry Vodka(3.oz) and Cointreau (2oz)(Orange Liqueur) (which sounds nice to me ^^)
I’m a big fan of peppermint Shnopps, which is why the Mad Monk stood out to me. Yeah, I think the Gringoire should be just slightly more dramatic…maybe add just a touch of vermouth and lemon juice or something…once I can drink again I’ll have to experiment.
I think the first thing I’m going to do when I can walk again is go into a bar and order a mad monk! I’m going to make myself sound like a total Jehan here, but I haven’t had an alcoholic beverage in 2 mos. This is the longest I’ve been sober since turning 21.
I think a Gringoire would be more like a rum and coke type drink…not too heavy, but enough to give you a good buzz. A Jehan would just be Tequila or maybe jello shots. I think a Quasimodo would have to be something STRONG that would knock you on your ass, but simple at the same time. Maybe whiskey, gin and root beer.
This should be a contest…come up with the best NDDP character drink recipe.
I think I had a Mad Monk (well a slip) it was tasty ^^
I think your ideas for Gringoire, Jehan and Quasimodo are spot on although maybe Gringoire should have like artistic mix in it or something.
A Contest would be fun ^^
I finally tried Absinth…that should should be the Quasimodo drink. I had the equivalent of 2 shots (one w/out sugar or water and one with both). Using sugar and water helps with the taste, but even then Absinth is powerful enough to make someone black out within just a couple of drinks.
