Basically like this: When I don't have simple syrup on hand and am too lazy to make some, I'll use a cube of sugar, add a dash of water, the bitters and muddle until the sugar is dissolved.
It's usually 70 €, but on discount for 50 € in one shop. Pricey experiment. Not sure whether I'll indulge. Apparently there's only 200 something bottles of this stuff. Edit: I think I might. They also have Old Overholt Straight Rye for 24.70 € on discount (1 L), which is a good price. Also, the "Islay" expression (aged 10 years, then finished 2 years in Port Ellen casks) was highly recommended by a known German bartender/barowner/whatever a while ago.
Have any of you had Alambic's Special Caribbean Gin (aged 11 years + 2 years in (Caribbean) rum casks, 131.2 proof)--or one of their "regular", non rum-barrel-aged expressions?
Simple syrup is sugar and water. Dissolve sugar in water and you have simple syrup. 1:1 for "regular" simple syrup, two parts sugar on one part water for rich syrup. Heat it slowly on the stovetop and stir until it's all dissolved to extend shelf life or just put the sugar and water in a shaker (or jar) and shake for 30-60 seconds, until it's dissolved. Chill the syrup if you don't use it up.
I'm drinking some artisan juice right now. 2008 Villa Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico (DOC). Slightly chilled - delicious stuff.
Maybe. It'll most likely be a grindfest paired with p2w though. And it probably won't even release in EU/US.
Ha! I'm also having some 2008 Villa Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico at the moment. Delicious.
Definitely try it with 1.5:1:1 too, and also try it with a rye. Either way, a good cocktail, although a Negroni made with Martini Gran Lusso is hard to beat. Not that they necessarily have to compete, they share lots of characteristics but given the different base spirit, they're also quite different.
Isn't it mostly alcohol that evaporates?
Damn. L'Artisan currently has a 20% coupon and Tea for Two is sold out. Wanted to get Tea for Two, Dzing! and Timbuktu.
