What are you drinking right now? - Page 773
Oh, no, the GM knew what it was. I was just too deep into martinits to remember.
I didn't really get into Rye whiskey a whole lot until I tried Russel's Reserve and found myself mildly intrigued. Since then, I have had bottles of Van Winkle Family Reserve, Thomas H. Handy, Knob Creek, and Bulleit, but the E.H. Taylor is by far, my favorite. At 100 proof, it has some heat to it, but it's a very deep, very complex whiskey.
Out on a limb to try another PDT book cocktail: The Weeski, a Wondrich concoction of Jameson 12, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau and Orange bitters.
I feel like I make cocktails as good as those in this book quite often. Then I drink them and never consider them again, because they weren't good enough to even get a name. I think a lot of bars, and a lot of authors, think far too highly of their creations.
