Jep that candy vodka is great. Made it a few times for christmas with polkagris - those candy canes you hang on the christmas tree ( http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:Candy_canes.jpg )
big_smile 

Another all time favorite party drink are hot shots aka bumble bee wink

Pour Galliano Liqueur into a shot glass, float warm espresso on top and top with a little whipped cream  cool

Sounds similar to a 'slippery nipple' Baileys with Sambuka on top (or could be vice versa).

That candy cane stuff sounds nice big_smile

With the vodka watermelon, don't use too big a watermelon. Also use a bamboo skewer to put holes through the flesh from the opening so it soaks in evenly - having a massive hit of vodka in the centre isn't all that good.

Re: Fun drinks for parties!

Definitely, and make sure you start it well ahead, mine took a week!  Also, use a flavoured vodka, one of the big brands makes a watermelon one.  Much nicer than the plain kind.

PORN STAR MARTINI
10ml egg white
25ml lemon juice
25ml passionfruit syrup
2 shots vodka

Shake over ice, strain into a martini glass and serve with a shot of champagne on the side.

My favourite cocktail from my favourite cocktail bar.  We were in there at some ridiculous hour of the early afternoon once, celebrating something or another (any excuse will do) and after several of these, plus copious begging (and it did help that I was 'seeing' the barman  wink ) we got the recipe.

Re: Fun drinks for parties!

I heard that you could cut a watermelon, or part of it... put it through a blender or food processor, strain it and then mix it with vodka that has been in the freezer for several hours or 24 just to get extra cold... keep the watermelon juice in the fridge too to keep it really cold. I think the big thing in martinis is pomegrante these days... What brand of vodka do you use? We usually stick with Stoli's.

I like sangria, many recipies out there... but that's what I make. Is that too passe for you young folk, lol?

Mix ingredients in large jug. stir til sugar dissolves

(and bcrain, to answer your question... i remember my nan got drunk on this a few weeks ago at a party big_smile)
