Screaming Pussycat Cocktail

I thought I'd share another one of my original cocktail recipes today - I call this one the Screaming Pussycat.  I named it after my cat Travis, who is by far the most vocal of our three felines.

  • 2 oz grapefruit vodka
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz orgeat
  • 1 cup crushed ice
For the vodka, I like Deep Eddy's grapefruit vodka, but any good grapefruit vodka will work.  Orgeat is an almond-flavored syrup and it can be a little difficult to find, but it is a necessary ingredient in a lot of tropical cocktails, including Mai Tais.  You'll probably want to go to a big liquor store to look for it - you might want to call to make sure they have it.  If you can't find it locally (I could never find it when I lived in Boston), you can order it online at Finest Call or a lot of other places. 

Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.

Serve in a tiki mug or your glass of choice.

And here's our very own Screaming Pussycat.  MEOW!


  1. Golly that sounds interesting and any drink named after Travis is good enough for me! HAHA

  2. That does sound delightful! My momma has recently taken a liking to Negroni Flips! Personally, I think she should try this one!
