as well as a Colt 45. I still have a soft spot in my heart for shitty booze.

Think when my manhattan comes out of the cask I'm putting a sazerac into it next.

The doctor said he could have one drink a night.

Anyone have a favorite recipe?

Cheers...

Our family favorite recipe is: 3:2:1:1 = 3 parts Anejo tequila, 2 parts Grand Marnier, 1 part fresh lime juice and 1 part Rose's Sweetened Lime. Shake. Rocks. Salt. Drink. Repeat.

^ That sounds like a relatively sweet margarita, no?

That sounds good!  I will visit the liquor store tomorrow.

 

Thank you.

Started off with dinner and a bottle of Rhone Grenache.

Then it was time for my standard 5 oz Citadelle Martini.

Next, to celebrate my new channel knife, I made an Old Fashioned.

2 oz "rich" simple
5 oz Maker's Mark
2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters
2 nice strips of orange rind with the new channel knife

Ahhh, that's enough for tonight.

Playing around with sours, 1.5 measure Bourbon, .5 measure Benedictine, .5 measure lemon juice, Peychaud's. It's okay, not great. I should probably tone down the lemon and use some vermouth or something, but I came up with a neat name for something using Bourbon and a french liqueur- the "Bourbon Restoration".

Adding vermouth would basically make it into a Vieux Carre. Which is an excellent cocktail.

Rum Old Fashioned*

 

1 oz Zacapa 23

0.5 oz Plantation 6

0.5 oz Goslings

0.25 oz Velvet Falernum

Dash simple

Jerry Thomas Bitters

Orange Peel (essential!)

 

*with thanks to Nick Jarrett, of Clover Club for first making me this cocktail with a very similar recipe. When he made it for me, I told him it was one of the top 5 cocktails I had ever had.

why the three different rums as opposed to just one?
post #11157 of 14132
Different flavor profile I guess.
post #11158 of 14132

Nick was probably hewing to the tiki tradition of 'splitting the base' where you use multiple base spirits supposedly to add to the complexity. I can kind of get that as a lot of rums aren't that complex on their own, but I am not sure how valid that is in a cocktail with many kinds of juices and other flavorings like orgeat and grenadine. In something like the rum old-fashioned with almost nothing to obscure the spirits, it seems a little more reasonable.

Incidentally, I read an article with Nick indicating that he felt that recipe information should be freely shared. In that case, IIRC, his recipe used Zacapa, Goslings, and Lemonhart 151.

Anyone else see this?

From a different link, apparently 2 parts congac, 1 part Kummel, 1 part Curacao, and 2 dashes of the bitters.

Yeah, that's a waste. I'm embarrassed for them.

 

Tonight, a new cocktail (my fourth, but no name yet). It's very Fall:

 

2.0 Laird's Bottled-in-Bond Applejack (use Calvados if only the regular Lairds is available)

0.5 Dolin Rouge

0.5 Cocchi Vermouth Di Torino

0.25 Allspice Dram

Dash Simple

Dash bitters
