Drinks on a play, Mixing

Postby jonerax » Fri Jan 29, 2010 12:38 pm

I am having a bit of trouble, as I have no imagination what so ever with blending drinks other than using the right alcohol I wondered if anyone had any bright ideas how to make drinks for actors/actress's on stage, that look exactly like they are meant to, but obviously with out using the alcohol...
the drinks I have got to make are:

-Bacardi and coke
-Gin and Tonic
-Sherry
-Whisky
if anyone wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction I would be so grateful!
Thanks

-Bacardi and coke - Wouldn't that just be Coke?
-Gin and Tonic - Sprite? 7-Up or Seltzer water?
-Sherry - Grape juice? Cranberry juice?
-Whisky - Flat ginger ale?

Actually, when I did my little bartending stint, these are some of the "tricks" I would give to those who didn't want to drink but didn't want to be hassled by others into getting "real" drinks.

when Tom Hanks was on the last Conan episode, he had a glass of cream soda that looked like scotch. It's all in how you sell it.

As an audience member, seems sherry migh want to be browner? What food coloring would one add to purple /red juice to make it browner or darker? Blue?

Probably way too late for a reply to this, but anyway...

Use cold tea in varying strengths, diluted with water. Water for gin.

Sherry can be anything from straw colored to brown, I would probably use dark tea.

The decanters, ice, garnish and mixers add to the effect.
