Whose Deal Is It Any Way!?!

F*@% the Dealer

Number of player needed:

3 or more. (The More the Merrier!!!)

Needed to play:

Deck of 52 cards and alcoholic beverage for each person. A table is preferred but, the ground is sufficient.

How to play:

The object of the game is to “F*@% the Dealer” by guessing cards correctly, making the dealer drink. Everyone sit in a circle; the dealer holds a shuffled deck of cards and looks at the card on top careful not to let anyone else see. He/she then asks the player to their left what they think the card is (the number of the card only, not the suit). If they guess right on the first try then the dealer takes ten drinks. If not then the dealer tells the player if the card if higher or lower than their guess. If they guess right on the second try then the dealer only drinks 5 drinks. If they guess wrong again then the player has to drink the difference between the card and their last guess (say the card is a 10 but the player says 7, they only drink 3 drinks). Now the card is shown and placed in the middle faced up. Leave room to line the cards up in order as the game progresses. The dealer then repeats the same guessing process with the next player. The goal of the dealer is to have three players in a row guess the card wrong so they can pass the deck to the player to their left, who becomes the dealer and starts with the next player up to guess and so on. The person who ends the deck as the dealer must take a shot!

Rules: The next dealer is always the person to the left of the current dealer.

                The next player is always the person to the left of the current player.

Seven 11 Doubles!!!

 

Number of players needed:

3 or more

Needed to play:

2 dice, a cup, alcohol, and a table

How to play:

The object of the game is to roll both dice and get a 7, 11, or doubles in order to give out drinks. Everyone gathers around the table in a circle and place a cup in the center. Fill the cup up about a quarter of the way. The game starts by having one person roll the dice. If they do not get a 7, 11, or double then the dice are passed to the player to their left for their turn to roll. If the person starting gets a 7, 11, or double then they choose someone to drink the cup. As soon as the player chose to drink, touches the cup with their hand, the person who rolled they 7, 11, or double has to grab the dice and attempt to roll another 7, 11, or double before the player finishes the cup. If the person drinking finishes the cup before a 7, 11, or double is rolled the dice go to the next player and the cup is to be refilled. If the player rolling gets a 7, 11, or double before the player drinking finishes, then the cup is refilled and the two players attempt the same thing. This is repeated until the player drinking the cup finishes before the player rolling gets a 7, 11, or double, or before  the people involved are to drunk to know what is going on . Which ever comes first.

 

Rules:

The player drinking can try to move the cup closer using objects, this way the player rolling cannot pick up the dice and start rolling. Once any body part touches the cup then the player rolling can proceed.

Another player can jump in and drink the cup for the player who was chosen to drink it. If this happens then the game is between the player who jumped in and the player rolling the dice.

Drink of the Day: Back to Basics

Sometimes you don’t have time to go out to have a good drink, or don’t have time for all that mixing and blending and straining…or maybe I’m just feeling lazy 😛

Whatever the reason consider the following drinks. They are easy to make, go down smooth, and if it’s a buzz you’re looking for, they are sure not to disappoint.

My all time favorite is Bacardi Gold Rum with Coke. You can just pour it and enjoy, don’t forget the ice.

Try the same Rum with Ginger Ale for something different. Bam! It’s that simple, and you have drink numero dos!

This last drink has quickly become one of my favorite simple pleasures,  although I have to be careful with it . Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey with Dr. Pepper. Let me tell you I was not expecting this to be so good, but I was hooked!

I usually add about a shot of liquor and fill the remainder of my glass with the other drink, but it’s all up to taste and how light or strong you like your drinks.

Enjoy, but most importantly, drink responsibly.

Cheers!

Drink of the Day: Chocolate Cake Shot

Since today is a very special day (it is the birthday of one of our fabulous bloggers, Andy) I decided that the “Chocolate Cake Shot” was the perfect drink recipe for today. It is really easy to make, but you do need the special ingredients.

Recipe:

1/2 oz Frangelico® hazelnut liqueur
1/2 oz vodka
sugar and lemon wedge

To make this fancy shot you just mix the Frangelico and vodka together in a shaker with ice. Dip the rim of the shot glass in lemon and coat with sugar. Coat the lemon wedge with sugar as well. Pour the shot mixture into the glass. To drink: lick the rim coated with sugar, shoot it, and bite into the sugary coated lemon immediately after. You will be so amazed how this literally tastes like chocolate cake.

ENJOY this fabulous treat! And Happy Birthday to our fellow blogger Andy!!!

Let’s get Chocolate Wasted!

Cheers!
