1 Comment | Leave a Comment

There will be graduations on May 5 for East Carolina University and May 11 for Pitt Community College as well as Cinco de Mayo on May 5. May 28 is Memorial Day which many regard at the unofficial beginning of summer. And don’t forget Mother’s Day on May 13. American Craft Beer week is May 14-20 (visit www.craftbeer.com) and, if you didn’t already know, Hug Your Cat Day is May 31.

Do you really need another reason to have a party?


The Graduate

  • ½ ounce amaretto liqueur
  • 1½ ounces Southern Comfort
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice

Shake over ice and strain into 
a glass.


Crazy Cat

  • 3 ounces spiced rum
  • 3 ounces coconut rum
  • 1 splash lemon lime soda
  • 2 splashes cranberry juice

In a shaker with ice, add all the ingredients. Shake well and pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry.


Mom’s Apple Pie

  • 2½ ounces apple schnapps
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon schnapps

Pour apple schnapps over ice in a brandy snifter and float cinnamon schnapps on top.


Dirty Momma

  • 1½ ounces vodka
  • 1½ ounces brandy
  • 1½ ounces kahlua coffee liqueur
  • 1½ ounces cream

Build over ice in a highball glass.


Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for May 5, in the United States is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial power and a victory for the Mexican people. This single battle was the roots of Cinco de Mayo.


Hot Wild Southern Mexican

  • 1 ounce each of cinnamon schnapps, Wild Turkey bourbon whiskey, Southern Comfort peach liqueur and Jose Cuervo gold tequila

Mix all four shots together and chill. Strain contents into two cups evenly.

Mexican Roots

  • 2 ounces white tequila
  • ½ ounce green creme de menthe.

Pour tequila and creme de menthe into a mixing glass half filled with ice. Stir well and strain into a cocktail glass.


Cinco de Mayo

  • 2½ white tequila
  • 1 ounce grenadine syrup
  • 1 ounce Rose’s lime juice

Shake well with lots of ice. Strain into glass and garnish with a wedge of lime.


Mexican Revolution

  • ½ ounce Jack Daniels
  • ½ ounce Jose Cuervo gold tequila

Shake ingredients in a mixing glass. Pour into a shot glass. Drink quickly and follow with a slice of lime.


Three Wise Men on a Cold Mexican Night

  • 1 ounce each Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Johnnie Walker, vodka and gold tequila

Pour all into a shaker filled with ice, shake well and serve in a shot glass.

Mexicali drinking game


  • 1 cup
  • 2 dice
  • 2 or more players


Instructions for play

  • 1. Everyone at the table has their own drink.
  • 2. The object is to shake the dice in the cup, slam it on the table, lift it up and take a peek at the dice (don’t let anyone else see them) and then announce what you have.
  • 3. a) If your roll does not match or beat the previous roll then you must drink.
  • b) You may bluff what you rolled in order to avoid drinking. However, the last person to roll before you has the ability to call your bluff.
  • If done successfully, you must drink. If they call your bluff and lose (ie. you really did beat the last score) then that person must drink.
  • Play then moves on to the next person
  • 4. Rolls are based on the two digit number they form when placed side by side (ex. a 3 and a 4 would be “43”) or if you throw doubles the value is one die times a hundred (ex. double 2 would count as “200”).


Special Rules

There are also some 
other special rolls that affect the game:

“21” (a 2 and a 1) is called a “Mexicali” and beats all other rolls (including double 6, or “600”).

“31” is a “reverse” and play goes back the other way around the table.

“32” is a “social” and everybody drinks.

“Reverse” and “social” both cancel out the previous roll so you don’t have to worry about beating the previous guy’s score. If you are caught bluffing a Mexicali you have to down the whole drink.


To sum

2-1 “21” Mexicali - 
Beats all.

3-1 “31” Reverse - Rotates play.

3-2 “32” Social - Everybody drinks.

4-1 “41”

4-2 “42”

4-3 “43”

4-5 “45”

5-1 “51”

5-2 “52”

5-3 “53”

5-4 “54”

6-1 “61”

6-2 “62”

6-3 “63”

6-4 “64”

6-5 “65”

1-1 “100”

2-2 “200”

3-3 “300”

4-4 “400”

5-5 “500”

6-6 “600”
