This being an old thread and thought I would update it for those who may care lol.
Being a bartender in my former life (even played on in a movie ) had an urge to throw in a $$ tip (just mainly agreeing with @chefbuba mentioned so long ago re lots of vodka with a plethora of mixins).
IMO the flavored wodkas were a great thing to find on my back bar ...giving me some extra products to play around with.....made a lotta cocktails based on this or that flavor.
Pour a few fingers booze over a bit of ice in the business end of a shaker...add a few splashes of whatever was in the closest speed pour container....then shake it like I meant it.
Flipped it over and with a swift crack on the palm of my hand..opened..and strained into whatever cocktail glass that had an appropriately prepared rim (sugar, salt, a mix of them or maybe a mix with a pinch of dried, pulverized hot pepper ...maybe ginger... peppermint candy dust always made for a popular rim.....endless possibilities, no?
Then I found this line of products http://www.lorannoils.com/ (very concentrated only need a micro drop per drink or two) and I found it silly to devote so many bottles and so much room when I could create on the fly!
Granted the only time I have cocktail duties these days is either at my own home or maybe that of a friend.
I have 4-5 of the tiny ampules in popular flavors kept airtight by a tiny dropper.....
Don't have to invest in six different liters of booze and can still be popular with all my friends lol.
Mandarin orange kamikaze is a big hit and one of my most favorite on a hot Texas afternoon lol!
