About

Hey robots, I'm Excremento, but you cool and old skool Dtoiders know that already, this is merely for the N00BS. I've been a videogamer for as long as I can remember. I have well over 27 years of video game experience that I rely on daily, and a near encyclopedic memory of gaming starting with the Commodore 64 and ending with whatever is the current hotness.

I've got my own blog at MediaWhoreNetwork that I try to write on when I'm not too busy...and just recently have decided to come back to do a few Community Blogs here on Dtoid now that most failbloggers don't exist anymore. I'm still here fellas (and ladies) updating as often as I can for all of your enjoyment.

Any of you out there who wish to chat it up with ol Ex can do so at:

Look, I drink.



And I think to myself, there are plenty of others here on D-Toid that do the same. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to share some sophisticated drink recipes with fellow adults? Named after one of the nicer commenter's I've had on my blog entries (I know there are many, many of you out there and I promise that your drink is forthcoming!) but mainly cause his name is the closest sounding Italian name I could find really quick like.

Shipero's Italian Apple Martini



Shame on you if you can't name who's in the picture above. In fact, the first person to tell me what his name is, gets tomorrow's drink named after them.

This recipe (from what I hear) is possibly the best apple martini there ever was or will be. For those of you concerned its a girly drink (it kinda is) the alcohol content is near 20%, which is considerably more than any beer i've ever had. I can't wait for this weekend to try this one out.


The basic recipe is:

3/4 Oz Amaretto Liqueur
1 1/2 Oz Sour Apple Schnapps
3/4 Oz Vanilla Vodka
1 splash Lime Juice
1 splash Cranberry Juice

Pour all of your ingredients into an iced shaker tin. Shake the contents until the tin is cold to the touch (and starting to sweat a bit) and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lime wheel (if so desired) and serve.

The drink should look something like this when finished.



There you have it, Shipero's Italian Apple Martini! Drink with caution people, I'm super cereal about this one, its 19% alcohol and is sneaky because it tastes nothing like a 19% drink might taste. I suggest only having 2 of these stretched out over a 2 hour period, or have something to eat while drinking.

Well, I hope you guys all like it, please let me know what you think!
