The Yalestation bartending resource is a little known feature on the Yalestation website that shows you how to make any number of cocktails, ranging from a regular old Long Island Iced Tea to the exotic, i.e. a Flaming Dr. Pepper. To make the Flaming Dr.Pepper, one must be at least somewhat skilled at both drinking alcohol and lighting things on fire, so it makes sense that this guidebook is only an online supplement to and not a required part of the alcohol education class that is now mandatory for all incoming Yale freshmen.
Also, you need not be 21 to check out this little guidebook. The only reason I can think of for why this gem exists is either because: 1) Yale station was made before the legal drinking age was 21 and at least before grain alcohol was prohibited on campus; or, 2) The dude who runs the website was like “DGAF… I’m doing it.”
Either way, it’s incredible that this exists. Here are some gems directly from the guide. You should check ‘em out before someone in the administration sees this, either realizes how absurd the Yalestation bartending resource actually is, or that it even exists, and pulls it down.
Flaming Dr. Pepper
1 pint(s) Beer
1 shot(s) Amaretto
1 dash(es) Grain Alcohol
Mostly fill a pint glass of beer. Warm the shot glass and add the amaretto. Top with the grain alcohol and flame. Take a deep breath, drop the shot glass in the beer and chug. The bottom tastes exacly like Dr. Pepper when the shot glass drops.
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
1 squirt Whip Cream
Shot glass is layered with kahlua and then whip cream. Drinker must then drink shot with only their lips touching the glass (hence the name).
1 oz. Scotch
1 oz. Drambuie
This stuff is an alcoholic’s candy. Pour the booze into a tumbler with ice and stir.
1/4 shot Grand Marnier
1/4 shot Southern Comfort
1/4 shot Vodka (Absolut)
1/4 shot Amaretto
1 splash Pineapple juice
Combine the four liquors and pineapple juice in a cocktail mixer filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into shot glass.
3/4 oz Butterscotch Schnapps
1/4 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
Pour 3/4 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps into a shot glass. Top it off slowly with 1/4 oz. Irish Cream. It should look layered. Tastes best when the Irish Cream is cold.
.25 oz. Galliano
1 oz. Vodka
4 oz. Orange Juice
Pour Vodka and Orange Juice into a tall glass with ice. Float the Galliano on top of the other ingredients (don’t stir) and serve.
