Tips: Whiskey Recipe
« on: Nov 04, 2006, 06:49 pm »
I find that when I need to make liquor like whiskey/brandy/scotch etc., iced tea tends to turn out rather foamy or gets a film on top. I usually use a tiny bit of (insert generic cola name here) in water and adjust to colour. I've also been told that caramel colouring will do the trick - supposedly it's tasteless and it readily available at restaurant supply stores.

If you need to make whiskey or brandy or whatever and you don't want to use iced tea or anything like that, it's pretty easy. Just fill the bottle with water, and add 3 drops red food colouring, 2 drops yellow and 1 drop green. If it's not quite right adjust the amount of red or yellow accordingly.

There was recently a tip on creating a liquor type drink like whiskey. I have also found that iced tea doesn't quite cut it, but we recently used ginger ale in a show and just left the caps off the bottle for a while and spent a little time shaking the bottles to get all the fizz out. It worked great.

Powdered ice teas really do not cut it, however, liquid ice tea is kickin'. Caramel colouring works really well too, but BEWARE- some actors are allergic! Itchy red hives do not make for a rollicking good time for anyone involved.

A recent production called for a bottle of whiskey, and by fluke I found that an excellent whiskey substitute is mixing soy sauce with water. It was so effective that our director, after a particularly disastrous rehearsal, was looking at it rather keenly, until one of the crew mentioned it wasn't real! Every couple of days it needs a fresh mix in (it has a tendency to go cloudy) but it definitely works. :) Hope this helped someone!
