Amf drink recipe

The Adios Motherfucker (or AMF) drink is a drink for the brave ones! This drink has a blend of five liquors, making it quite potent for the average drinker.

With its additional sweet and sour mix and soda, the AMF drink offers a fun and refreshing experience for anyone who wants to get buzzed quickly.

Even though the “Adios Mother-Fucker” drink has quite a range of different ingredients, it’s not that hard to prepare.

Today, I’ll show you how to prepare the Adios Motherfucker cocktail so that you can impress all your guests at your next drinking event.

Why Is It Called “Adios Motherfucker”?

The “Adios Motherfucker” name is a fun suggestion of what the bartender would tell any person who ordered the drink. It refers to how strong this drink is and how it isn’t for the faint of heart. The Trash Can Drink is another great recipe if you are looking to get a larger group buzzed.

Overall, the Adios Motherfucker has been around for a little over three decades, but it didn’t become popular until the mid-2000s.

Even though it’s a potent cocktail, you can still try it out if you’re not a fan of those kinds of drinks. The taste is amazing and will likely surprise you.

Interestingly enough, the AMF drink goes by several different names, so if you’re ordering it at your local bar, it may not have the name I’m using here.

The AMF drink is also called:

  • Adios Motherfucker
  • Blue Motorcycle
  • Blue Motherfucker
  • Blue Long Island Iced Tea
  • Walk Me Down Drink

Keep in mind that, while the AMF is commonly referred to as a Long Island Iced Tea, it isn’t quite the same. The LIIT has cola instead of the lemon-lime soda and triple sec instead of the blue curaçao. While you have the triple sec out, try out this Casamigos Margarita Recipe!

Variations for the Adios Motherfucker

The “Adios” drink is amazing at its base version, but you can mix up some of the ingredients to get a slightly different taste each time.

  • First, you can replace the lemon-lime soda with cola and the blue curaçao with triple sec, which will get you the traditional Long Island Iced Tea.
  • If you’re going for the Long Island Iced Tea route, you can also replace the lemon-lime soda with cranberry juice if you’re feeling creative.
  • Those who want to get the “Hawaiian Iced Tea” variation can replace the lemon-lime soda with pineapple juice. On the other hand, if you want a “Tokyo Tea,” you can add ½ oz of melon liqueur.
  • If you don’t have blue curacao, you can add triple sec and blue food coloring, which will give you a similar result.
  • You can use ¾ oz of simple syrup and ¾ oz of lemon juice to substitute the sweet and sour mix.
  • If you don’t have a sweet and sour mix, you can prepare it with simple syrup and lemon juice.
  • Finally, if you don’t want this cocktail recipe to be too strong, you can reduce the amount of liquor to ¼ for each one.

When Is It Good to Prepare an AMF Drink?

This amazing cocktail recipe with lemon-lime soda, blue curacao, and sweet and sour mix is perfect for most occasions, but considering it can get you drunk a bit faster than other cocktails, here are some events where it may be more appropriate.

Large Events

If you have an event where you can accommodate bartenders, then this is a perfect place to dive deep into the citrus flavor that the AMF offers!

High-energy Parties

A great thing about this drink is that you can easily create big batches to prepare ahead of time. Grab your ingredients like the sweet and sour mix, blue curacao, and your lemon slice or cherry, and multiply their amounts to fit the number of servings you want.

Outdoor Activities

Even though this drink is strong, it’s still good for relaxing occasions like pool parties, backyard reunions, and more.

Can the AMF Be Served with Food?

It’s not common to serve this blue curacao drink with food, but the acidity that its flavor offers can complement a few dishes like salty snacks, medium-bodied meats, and light to medium-bodied fish.

Can the “Adios Motherfucker” Get You Drunk?

It depends on the amount of liquor you get. Typically, the AMF is considered stronger than your average Long Island Iced Tea, and depending on the amount of liquor, you will get the equivalent of about 2-4 shots.

If you use too much alcohol, then you will certainly get drunk faster, but in its base version, it will not cause you any problems if you only drink a few.

Bottom Line

The Adios Motherfucker is an interesting drink that you should try out at least once! You can also surprise your friends and show them how this cocktail with a funny name can get the party started in no time.

I hope this page helped you understand how to make a delicious AMF drink.
