Did you enjoy the class? I'm going to a vermouth making class at the Columbia Room in December and I hope It's worth the trip.

P.S. I love amaro Meletti but i never have any use for it, except for an after dinner stomach settler. plain.gif

getting the fuck out of japan. but i miss you and will see you again soon. On my 3rd four roses and pellegrino, forgot I was drinking Havana Club 7 and Coke before that. Styleforumming is smooth like aladdin on a rug made of pubes so I'm alright for now.

Anyway, sounds nice. Don't know most of the names but I'm sure they were good.

The class was called "The Art of the Apero" and featured French and Italian bitter liqueurs. I used "amaro" as a shorthand for "bitter liqueur" just for convenience, but it only covers the Italian half. I think "apero" covers the French half.

How did you find the Suze? I bought a bottle at long last from Ace, but have not been impressed.

I enjoyed the Suze, but it didn't stick out in my mind good or bad. I'll probably end up buying a bottle at some point, just because I love bitter liqueurs. Contrast that with Fernet Branca, which tasted like liquified menthol cigarettes to me. I'm not buying a bottle of that.

It will be worth the trip. The Apero class was my sixth at the Columbia Room. The classes are always informative and give you good ideas for future imbibing. Each class typically serves three full-sized cocktails, so you will be buzzed at the end, which is kind of an odd feeling at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon. The Apero class served half-sized cocktails, because bottles of the liqueurs were being passed around for sampling.

You sure like your Four Roses.

this years limited edition is the best yet an outstanding spirit ... IF you can find A bottle grab it, only about 4000 total bottled. This Bourbon will hold its own with anything out there..

Cuba Libre
3cl Mount Gay Rum
7cl Appleton White Rum
21cl Coca Cola
1/4 lime

Quite nice. Better than with just 10cl Appleton, 1/2 lime and 0 Mount Gay (not a big fan of Appleton White Rum in Cuba Libres).


Moscow Mule
9cl Smirnoff Black
3cl lime juice
23cl ginger beer

Ok. Unfortunately, I felt the need to try out Schweppes ginger beer. Ugh. I think overall I prefer Dark n' Stormys.


The Last Word
-- standard recipe with Tanqueray --

Good as always.


And some Cragganmore 12.

I really hope no one here buys this: http://www.businessinsider.com/g-spirits-pours-liquor-over-models-2012-10

There is a NSFW video link that shows the "manufacturing" in action.

Not so. Too much salt.

Hehe.

Didn't know that boobies were allowed on YouTube -- not even for 18+ videos.

BTW, I don't like those two suckers. I wouldn't want to shove any amount of money up their rectums.

Suntory just released a "premium malts" black beer; got a few to sample. Not bad, but I miss the microbrews back home in the USA, especially Bell's. Most amazing thing is that thanks to all the hidden taxes and government stealing, Japanese beer is more expensive in Japan than the USA. So, I probably paid more for a can of this crap than you fellows did for your yummy bourbon beers (which I also miss). frown.gif
