What's the official Tesla cocktail?

What's the official Tesla cocktail?

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

@Pollux,

Long Island Iced "T"!

rjt65 | 2015年8月19日

Great idea.

For me i prefer red wine (shiraz, Cab, Sangiovese, Chianti Sarah,)

But love still beer.

But you asked for a Cocktail so T is for Tequila, So margaritas!

Electric Lemonade - Rum, blue curaçao, lemon-lime soda, and sweet and sour served on crushed ice and garnished with lemon; tart and refreshing

Electric Iced Tea -

http://cocktails.about.com/od/vodkadrinkrecipes/r/electricicedtea.htm

"The Electric Iced Tea is a simple variation of the Long Island Iced Tea. In this drink the triple sec is replaced with the "electrifying" hue of blue curacao – both orange liqueurs so only the color changes – and the cola falls aside to a lighter lemon-lime soda."

Martini, shaken not stirred.

staze | 2015年8月19日

Elon mentioned on Reddit he likes Whiskey. Ironically it was also the drink of choice for Nikola Tesla as well.

carlk | 2015年8月19日

ICE'd T? I don't think so.

acegreat1 | 2015年8月19日

Shebbs, that is what I'm talking about

EternalChampion | 2015年8月19日

I'll ironically mention the old fashioned.

AmpedRealtor | 2015年8月19日

I believe the "state drink" of California is a Mai Tai, so I vote for that! :)

shs | 2015年8月19日

Should be something green.

mrspaghetti | 2015年8月19日

Kool-Aid :)

sbeggs | 2015年8月19日

@carlk,

Funny!

Network1 | 2015年8月19日

As long as you don't call it a "Tessie" anything with a kick should work nicely...

AmpedRealtor | 2015年8月19日

+1 mrspaghetti!

Pollux | 2015年8月19日

Great suggestions! Thank you!

A friend of ours from a younger generation is helping plan the party... I think we're going to ask her to thoroughly research these ideas, and report back with recommendations!

Bluesday Afternoon | 2015年8月19日

I'll let this thread mature, then sample the entire list! I'm with Elon, so please get whiskey/whisky drinks into the mix.

s1 | 2015年8月19日

Teslita - Tequila and Cranberry Juice to match the red one.

Captain_Zap | 2015年8月19日

I'm still a kid. I like vodka with a frozen blue "Otter Pop" as a swizzle stick. Very Koolaid-like.

P.Dolby | 2015年8月20日

I would have to second the whisky.. Neat.
No surprises.. No compromises. Says what it does.. Does what it says.

jordanrichard | 2015年8月20日

Gentlemen Jack, neat of course.

Captain_Zap | 2015年8月20日

Skip the whiskey. Sippin' Tequila!

fiksegts2 | 2015年8月20日

Moscow Mule!

Oops dropped the "n" in lightning... must be the alcohol.

staze | 2015年8月20日

Nice find usatyke

NKYTA | 2015年8月20日

Where's @renwo? Certainly he thinks it should a Pabst or a Hamm's...

Mr. Pasta nailed it! For those want the extra kick, add your whiskey or vodka of choice.

Gotta go with the roots

Old Fashioned with muddled orange and cherry. With Woodford Reserve or Basel Hayden bourbon.

vpoz | 2015年8月20日

I'd go for a G&T ... as in 1G launch of a T

rxlawdude | 2015年8月20日

Something with lots of juice?

staze | 2015年8月20日

Nikola Tesla: “Had I not given up [daily] whiskey during [Prohibition], I would surely live to 150 years of age.”

“I myself eschew all stimulants. I also practically abstain from meat. I am convinced that within a century coffee, tea, and tobacco will be no longer in vogue,” he said in the early 20th century. “Alcohol, however, will still be used. It is not a stimulant but a veritable elixir of life.”

“People have been led to believe that alcoholic beverages cause serious injuries to mind and body, while other stimulants, as tea and coffee, are almost harmless. I know from careful observation and lifelong experience that the reverse is more nearly true.”

I think I need to begin some "daily" "careful observations"

@staze,
Inspiring! Back to my Bacardi dark rum in pineapple juice, mango, watermelon, lime and banana smoothie.

We are carefully observing the healing properties.

Bluesday Afternoon | 2015年8月20日

@sbeggs - Whatever you do, don't drink your concoction as fast as you drive your S. I had a smoothie the other day and I can still feel the brainfreeze!

PBEndo | 2015年8月20日

For such an exclusive car, the official cocktail must include a dash of Grey Poupon!
;)

sbeggs | 2015年8月20日

@Simply Red,

Ok, will take note, sit down and sip slowly!

KL | 2015年8月20日

1st Choice: Water ... because I need to enjoy driving my Tesla 24/7 and I can't do that when I'm drinking.

2nd Choice: Finest old world scotch from the Multnomah Whiskey Library in Portland (http://www.mwlpdx.com/) ... and I"m from California. It's worth the drive over. :)

Make mine green...

Still Grinning ;-)

Blu Zap | 2015年8月20日

1st choice - always have water
2nd choice - during the day a crisp Chardonnay from Sonoma County
other 2nd choice - a Pinot Noir from the California Russian River Valley.

Haggy | 2015年8月22日

Drinking and driving don't mix. Everybody give me your fobs.

barrykmd | 2015年8月22日

Whatever you decide, no ICE.

@barrykmd,
Good one!

Martini stirred not shaken.

Bluesday Afternoon | 2015年8月23日

Sitting on the back porch sipping, as sbeggs recommends, a cool glass of limoncello with a splash of lemonade. Sorry, it's a glass of lemonade with a splash of limoncello. Correction, a substantial splash of that Italian lemon stuff.

sule | 2015年8月23日

@usatyke: Where did you find that šljivovica? That kind of stuff is made where Nikola Tesla comes from.

Re alcohol... if only auto pilot were fully featured that would not be a problem.

ICE is fine. Teslas have them for breakfast.

Pollux | 2015年8月23日

@Simply Red, my wife adores limoncello! Has to make an appearance at the party in some form.

Red Sage ca us | 2015年8月24日

Orange juice with 7-Up, on the rocks, with a cherry on top...

AKA 'Virgin Screw'...
