Rugby Cocktails & Favourite Drinks

As we are raising our virtual glasses (quite regularly now), I thought it might be useful to look at some Rugby Cocktails and Favourite Drinks. A little research on the World Wide Web and I found these.  My favourite drink is Bacardi & Coke.  So what is you favourite drink?

  Muddy Bloody Maul

  • 50ml Crème de Cocao
  • 100ml Jameson Whiskey
  • 25ml grenadine

1. Shake chocolate liquor and Jameson with ice.
2. Strain into any narrow and long glass, such as a large shot glass, sour glass, or flute.
3. Pour grenadine down the back of a spoon so that it pools in the bottom on the drink.
4. Admire the beauty, and then stir to combine.


The drink should look like there is a pool of blood under the mud.


  Springbok Shot

1. In a shot glass pour green crème de menthe.

2. Layer Amarula on top of the green crème de menthe (Use Baileys if you cannot find Amarula liqueur.)


 The TMO (Tequila, Malibu, Orange Juice)

  • 50ml orange juice
  • 25 ml Malibu
  • 25ml gold tequila
  • 25ml Marguerite mix
  • 25ml ounce peach schnapps
  • 50ml unsweetened pineapple juice

Combine and pour over crushed ice in a margarita glass.

Err don’t ask me what muddled raspberries are??



And for those who want something Non Alcholic

Spiced Piña Colada Mocktail

For an alcohol-free option, try spiced piña colada mocktail (or virgin piña colada), with mock rum syrup, pineapple juice and coconut milk

  1. To make a mock rum syrup, put the dark brown muscovado sugar and 200ml water in a saucepan, stir well and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Add a few strips of skin from the pineapple, add the black peppercorns, cloves and a cinnamon stick, then bring to the boil. Turn off the heat and leave to infuse until cold. Strain into a jug and set aside in the fridge until needed. Will keep for up to three days.
  2. Pour the pineapple juice into a tall glass, and add the coconut milk and lime juice. Stir gently. Fill up the glass with a handful ice then slowly add 25ml of the syrup so it sinks to the bottom. Garnish with pineapple leaves and a tinned cherry.


And my favourite drink apart from Merlot is  Bacardi and Coke or in Spanish Cuba Libre! 

 The Cuba Libre recipe is an easy and popular mixed drink that you will find very familiar. Translated from Spanish, the name means “Free Cuba,” a phrase that was popularized around the end of the Spanish-American War and used to celebrate that Cuba was freed from Spanish rule. 

This simple mixed drink is similar to a rum and Coke, but the addition of fresh lime juice lightens up the mix and cuts through the sweetness of the cola. The lime is the single element that defines the Cuba Libre as a separate drink and it should be fresh (not from a bottle) to keep the drink authentic.

A long time ago, before everybody went nuts about gin, and gin itself went nuts appearing as cranberry gin, melon gin, chilli gin, horse dung gin, and all that, I liked a proper gin & tonic, complete with slice of lemon. I liked it three or four times before I made the connection that I have a very weird allergic reaction to gin. I haven't been able to like it since.
