Hi,

My wife and I are going to be serving cocktails (and awesome food, live music, etc.) to 200-300 people at the end of September for a party/fundraiser that involves a ton of Tesla owners and fans.

The question is: what is the signature cocktail associated with Tesla? A boilermaker? A Rob Roy? I'm the next best thing to a teetotaler and have no idea about alcohol in general or cocktails in specific.

I need some help with this! Please tell me what you think the signature Tesla cocktail would be, and why.

Thanks,
Alan

VERY good, cpa!

I would say that, as a nod to Nikola T's heritage, it ought to be something with slivovitz, aka šljivovica, the Serbian national weaning-juice (a damson plum brandy).

this combo features moscato wine plus raspberryand vanilla vodka, served with an intense sidecar of curacao infused red bull giving this drink an electric boost

LOL!!

I'd make a drink with 4 cl of rum or vodka, then add 20 cl of battery electrolyte. Serve in wide glass with the rim sprinkled with Lithium salt. I'd call this drink "a Voltage".

More LOL!!!!

I'd call it the "release date" and make it sweet, but very bitter with a delayed kick. :smile:

@Zextraterrestrial (and others), I know you're gonna laugh when I ask questions like this, but as someone who has never made it past a half beer, I really don't know...

Is this a real thing that people might actually like? Is it actually possible to infuse a drink with nitrous oxide?

^^ouch!

I was thinking more along the lines of something with redbull.
maybe a vodka-redbull infused with nitrous oxide
make you smile and feel like you are doing insane launches! :tongue:

OK, these sound like things that could be made. Would people like them? Would they be suitable for drinks at a party that is going to be on a Saturday (Sep 26), 4-7 p.m., i.e., afternoon/early evening?

Ok. I'll try:

Elon Bomb
Bourbon, Lemon Juice, Hard Cider, Maple Syrup, Cayenne Pepper


P85D (Red)
Pernod liqueur
Clyde Mays Conecuh Ridge Bourbon (85 proof)

OK, I've actually heard of a Long Island Ice Tea. :) Whew. OK!

Huh! OK!

Electric blue lemonade

1 oz vodka
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
2 oz sweet and sour mix
2 oz lemon-lime soda

Is this a real alcohol thing? Even if not, this could be a great name for a drink.

Love these ideas... The Wife thinks we should have a Cocktail Menu and offer *all* of them. (Plus ones I just got from a posting on teslamotors.com.)


A friend of ours from a younger generation is helping plan the party... and I am confident she has some friends willing to help her out. So I think we're going to ask her to thoroughly research these ideas, and report back with recommendations, up to and including, "all of them". :)

1 oz vodka
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
2 oz sweet and sour mix
2 oz lemon-lime soda

A number of people are graciously lending their time and effort to help my wife and I with this party/fundraiser. One young lady is helping us engage legislators, arrange various aspects of the party, and generally greasing the skids. She has taken up the Tesla Cocktail Menu problem with complete dedication.

Some friends and I were pondering this possibility for a while in college. The key is solubility in water. Carbon dioxide is a good baseline to use, as there are already plenty of carbonated beverages for comparison.

Here's a link to the solubility of a variety of gases (though not N[SUB]2[/SUB]O) in water as a function of temperature:
http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/gases-solubility-water-d_1148.html

This also explains why bubbly drinks go flat if they warm up too much. Note that for CO[SUB]2[/SUB] it is typically around 2g for 1 kg of water (1 kg of water is 1 liter). A quick search shows that N[SUB]2[/SUB]O is about as soluble in water as CO[SUB]2[/SUB], however in an 8 oz. drink, the amount would not be enough to have an effect. It would just be the psychology of knowing that it's nitrous.
