Things that are pissing you off- Food & Drink Edition - Page 18

post #256 of 2864
i love amari and cynar is one of the more, uh, distinctive. the first time i tasted it, i thought i was drinking bile. but gradually you get used to them. but they are specifically digestivi ... bitter things you drink AFTER a meal, theoretically to aid digestion, more practically because the combination of sweet and bitter is a nice finish to a meal (and italian desserts being what they are ... often a better solution).

Tanqueray 10, or Hendricks, martini with oysters is tasty.

Gin(Hendricks) & tonic with cucumber sandwiches is also great. There's also something very Southern about a John Daly with a bucket of fried chicken on the porch.

John Daly? The golfer?

Yeah, I'm not sure if the drink has caught on, but it's pretty good. I used to call it an Arnold McPalmer when I first made it, but then I found others were making it too and calling it a John Daly. I preferred John Daly.

It's an alcoholic Arnold Palmer - half sweet-tea flavored vodka (usually Firefly), half lemonade. Extremely refreshing on a summer day.

That sounds awesome. I love Arnold Palmers!

Good luck, Paulius knows the tricks of the trade --- and he won't spill the beans (but will happily share a drink with you for $15). His red wine reduction "tango style" vermouth is crack

It's the Tango Negroni that kills me.

Vya was the vermouth they were using the night I was at the VTR.

Hmmm -- usually they have two styles of Manhattan and the Negroni. The standard is with Vya, and Tango-style is with that red-wine-reduction-cum-vermouth of Paulius' that is, as Cav says, like crack. ~H

Ah, my mistake then. I did have the Tango style. Since I knew I would not be back any time soon, I tried as many cocktails as I could. I settled on the Dark and Stormy and had maybe one too many. The homemade ginger beer was so good.

Really? I go there often and it's a housemade vermouth they use .. they sell it as well ($30 for a bottle!), but do not sell the tango style (red wine redux vermouth) which makes for my favorite drink there-- tango style rye manhattan.

I need to try more drinks there, I always get either of the Manhattans -- tried friend's drinks though, Spicy Chica, some of the sours, all great.

I love the place (and the regulars there) -- if anyones in town and wants to catch a drink let me know

Cleveland. But it got all of its inspirations from certain bars much closer to you.
