Awww, muffin.Just kidding Pio. I really like the new coupes. I'm tempted to grab a set of them, but I have too many glasses as it is. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself for now. We'll see in a week or so once my willpower is broken down.I was teaching a friend how to make a few basic drinks. One of which was just a simple Manhattan. I need to get some proper picks for garnishing.
Finally got around to making a Black Lodge. My goodness was it delicious. A touch sweet, but very balanced nonetheless. Black Lodge 1.5 oz rye (Colonel E.H. Taylor straight rye) .5 oz Cherry Heering .5 oz Cynar .5 oz Carpano Antica dash of orange bitters Orange twist
What is Booker's? Broker's gin is clear as day.
I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow night and will report back. I will probably use Fee Bros. West Indian Orange bitters.
Sounds great, but I would have to get Aquavit which I can't get here. I do have a recipe for a drink using Cynar and Cherry Heering which I am looking forward to trying. If anyone else has recommendations for Cynar recipes I'm all ears. Black Lodge 1 1/2 oz Michter's Rye 1/2 oz Cynar 1/2 oz Cherry Heering 1/2 oz Carpano Antica 1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters
Just picked up my first bottle of Cynar and given a Negroni is my favourite summer cocktail I made a variation, the Berlioni: 1 oz Broker's gin 3/4 Cynar 1/2 dry vermouth Didn't have any oranges for the twist, but it was very enjoyable nevertheless. It would be a great introduction to the world of negroni-like bitter cocktails for people who don't normally appreciate that style of cocktail.
I find it's a 50/50 love it, hate it reaction to the drink.
I dice up fresh jalapenos as much as possible, even squishing them with the flat of the blade, then put them in.
1.5 oz mezcal1 oz pineapple juice3/4 oz Cointreau1/2 oz lime juice1/8 tsp jalapeno juice (I just infuse macerated jalapenos in the mezcal for a half hour)
I still make your White Martini regularly Huntsman. It is pretty lovely.
