Another semester down, having a Manhattan. Not at home, so it is only so-so. What I really want is some ridiculously good mezcal.

Thanks. I was going to make Morgenthaler's version:

2 large eggs
3 oz (by volume) granulated sugar
½ tsp freshly-grated nutmeg
2 oz brandy
2 oz spiced rum (I use Sailor Jerry’s)
6 oz whole milk
4 oz heavy cream

But maybe I'll try both. Was planning on using Gosling's. Neither E&J or Christian Brothers are available in Germany which is why I figured I'd be better off with a Spaniard. Have you had Osborne's 103 Negra or reserva del Toro or Stock 84?

Also inclined to try the Clyde Common egg nog (tequila + sherry), but I won't use my Don Julio anejo in it and I don't think I want to invest in another anejo tequila at the moment. Maybe a mezcal.. never had one. Recs? wink.gif

Drinking right now: chilled Otima 10 port.

I wouldn't worry about the lack of E&J or Christian Bros too much, the point of recommending them for mixing is that they're cheap and taste reasonably good. Over in Europe, I would grab something in a similar category from Spain or France, I wouldn't seek out cheap American brandy.

That's what I meant. I don't have much experience with brandys. I just know that the regular Osborne del Toro is not that great, neither is the regular Vecchia Romana (both common brandys around here). I'd like to pay about 13-15€/0.7l. Guess I'll google for some reviews. I always prefer recommendations over blind buys.

It's one of the most fascinating things about cocktails, imo. Theoretically, the vital basics are extremely easy to satisfy -- you neither need to know a lot, nor do you need to be gifted with exceptional skills. You just measure, stir or shake. Yet it seems to be incredibly difficult for so many bars/restaurants in the world to serve acceptable cocktails.

I had some Kelt XO cognac. I thought the back story on the ocean voyage was super cheesy, but I definitely enjoyed the drink.

Picked up a bottle of Col. E.H. Taylor barrel proof tonight. Uncut, unfiltered and close to 140 proof.

It's cold out, blowing rain, and windy. Good weather for the Corryvreckan.

It's a goofy story, but it is a good drink. Overpriced, of course, but enjoyable.

This showed up in the mail today, a gift from a close friend.



When he was visiting recently, we each had a customary pour from our birthyear bottle.
