Yeah, I have picked up a few bottles here and there. Forgot how mild and pleasant it us.
  The most decadent Negroni possible: Old Formula Campari, Hendrick's, and Cocchi Barolo Chinato. Fabulous.   ~ H
I like to wear my Jaguar shirt when driving my BMW. I have not quite tried the BMW shirt in the Jag though.
Ugie is nice.    This thread needs a very great deal more participation.   Went to a cocktail party at our friends' -- we were drinking a number of drinks from the Death & Co. book.   Tonight I had a Midnight at la Esquina: 1.5oz. Del Maguey, 1.0 oz. Cocchi Americano, 0.5 oz Campari.     Later, perhaps, a Blue Mountain: 1.5oz Rum, 1.0 oz sweet vermouth, 0.375 oz Campari, 0.5oz Galliano Ristretto, barspoon Ramazotti.   ~ H

Sort of a Kingston variant: 1.5 rum, 1.0 sweet vermouth, .75 Campari, barspoon Fernet. Had this with Havana Club 7 at a Toronto bar called Cold Tea (solid spot. love that they have an on-site dim sum vendor) last month. Ratios are my attempt to recreate.
