This week, Brandy the Bartender shows us how to mix up a sultry Cuba Libre.
This week, our intrepid reporter asked Brandy the Bartender for something dark and exotic, so she made a Cuba Libre. Cuba Libre is essentially just a Rum and Coke with lime, but doesn't it sound better when you say it in Spanish? The great thing about this drink is the sugar in the Coke mixes with the sugar in the rum and successfully covers the taste of alcohol. To make one at home, all you need is: Fill a glass with ice, add your rum, top with soda, then squeeze a little lime on top, and use the rest of the fruit as a garnish. Ladies, drink two and hope that maybe the Old Spice Man will buy you a third.

This week on Patch Potions we visit Brandy, a Maryland Heights bartender, for a lesson on how to make an alcoholic version of that childhood treat, the Orange Dreamsickle.
Orange Dreamsickles aren't just for kids anymore. This week on Patch Potions, Brandy the Bartender shows us how to mix up some creamy, citrussy goodness. Fill a 12 to 16 oz glass about halfway with ice. Add your vodka, sprite orange juice, and top it off with half and half. If you have a martini shaker at home, feel free to show off. If you don't, Brandy says you can cheat by pouring your drink back and forth between two glasses. It's the same effect, just a little less Don Draper. Brandy says you can use heavy cream instead of half and half if you want to make the drink even richer. If you want to modernize this classic, you can also experiment with mango flavored vodka and mango juice, both available at your local liquor store.
