Drinks inspired by "The Help"

The team at Snake Oil Cocktail Company created a few original drinks inspired by the new movie The Help. I was thrilled to be invited to a screening in San Diego and equally excited to sample some of these amazing cocktails during the after party:

The Skeeter
Sweet, strong, and a little spicy
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. cranberry
Finish with jalapeno-orange foam

The Aibilene
Subtle, smooth and Strong
1 1/4 oz. coffee liquor
1/2 oz. bourbon
1/4 oz. amaretti
1 oz. cream
1 dash coco nibb bitters


The Hilly
Sour and chilled, with a sharp twang
1 1/2 oz. applejack
1/2 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. lemon juice
Fill with dry hard cider

  1. I can kind of imagine the taste of the first two, but that last one? Can't quite imagine applejack. I imagine Hilly tasting more like bitters.
