About 2/3 of the way through Desert Bus, the whole crew was getting pretty tired, and pretty stressed out. We thought some “adult” beverages would the things we needed to soothe our jangled nerves. We put out a call for cocktails and mocktails that captured the spirit of Desert Bus, and here they are:



Mark’s Deceptive Sunrise

1 part Drambuie

2 parts ginger ale

splash cherry juice

Runners Up:

Katherine’s Sweetness for the Children Cocktail

1/2 oz of Pineapple Juice

1/2 oz Melon Liquior

1/2 oz peach snappes

1/2 oz 7up

Jillian’s  – The Bug Splat

2 parts Midori

1 part Limoncello

1 part gin




orange juice

chocolate milk

(note – this will curdle, but tastes like drinking a chocolate orange)

Runners Up:

Beth’s Las Vegas Lights (or 1 point) – Non-alcoholic:

1 oz lemon juice

3 oz cranberry juice

1 oz apple juice

1/4-1/2 oz grenadine

Garnish with 2 pieces colourful candy (gummy bears, skittles, etc)

Gareth’s Desert Sunset

Arizona Iced Tea

Orange Juice

(super boring, but therefore very much in flavour for Desert Bus)
