with that has a good sweetness.

Cherry Tootsie Pop Cocktail Recipe
Derrick: Welcome to Common Man Cocktails, I’m your host Derrick Schommer. And today, we’re doing a user-submitted recipe. I think we’re going to do all user-submitted recipes this week. So this one is going to be called the Cherry Tootsie Pop and it’s going to have a little Red Bull. That’s right, this will be our second Red Bull I think, the second one.
Female: Who submitted the recipe?
Derrick: Who submitted the recipe? It was submitted by slugger1983 out on YouTube. We have HD now on YouTube. I started doing the HD videos out there.
We’re going to use a little grenadine because you got to have grenadine because it’s called the Cherry Tootsie Pop, so that’s going to be the red maybe, the cherry. I haven’t had this drink. I have no idea what I’m doing. That’s not unusual. A little Grand Marnier, we’re going to do ¾ ounce of Grand Marnier, so we’re going to be shaking and we’re going to use ¾ of an ounce of the Don Q Limón, this is a citrus rum. It calls for a lemon rum, a limon, lemon—it’s lime infused I believe of lemon-lime, I don’t know, whatever. It’s will—I think it’s going to be good. That, and I don’t have any, so maybe this is the substitution. So we’ll put those two ingredients with a little splash of grenadine in here, shake it up, put it in a little low ball glass and pour some Red Bull.
Let’s do it. So we’ll do ¾ of an ounce of the Grand Marnier into the glass. We’ll do ¾ of an ounce of the citrus-flavored infused rum and a splash of grenadine, one drop, two. I call that a splash. Always left up to the imagination, there you go. That’s your drink right there. That’s it. This is your base. We’ll add some ice, shake it, there you go. Let’s see if I hit it in the right spot. That is your base cocktail that we will add our Red Bull to.
So we got to make sure we leave enough room for the Red Bull. I don’t think we’re going to have a problem here. Perfect! Excellent! Perfect measurements slugger1983. It’s almost like you go halfway when you get all the ice in there. We’ll crack open the Red Bull, no sleeping tonight. It’s debatable whether Red Bull is good straight or not. I like it on a cocktail though.
So there you go. This got a peach fuzz color to it. I like it. I like it. But does it taste like a Cherry Tootsie Pop? A little bit. I don’t know why. It’s not like the Chocolate Cake Shooter where you are like, “Oh, this is totally chocolate cake.” It's got its own flavors but if you—and you probably wouldn’t catch it if you just drank the drink by itself. You just go, “Oh, that’s a nice sweet little cocktail.” Knowing what it’s called makes it a little more—you can imagine a little better.
And it’s flavorful, not just Red Bull. I’m not huge fan of Red Bull. Put it in a drink with a different sweetness and different characteristics and you’ve got yourself an actual cocktail. And that cocktail is called the Cherry Tootsie Pop. Yeah, pretty cool. Thank you slugger1983. We’re teaching you how to drink.
