I know not Wiser's (although I just looked it up online.)
What are you drinking right now? - Page 794
Wiser's is what you want for Canadian whisky. Whether you're mixing or drinking manhattans this is your go to Canadian.
Zestos Vinos de Madrid Old Vines was the wine.
I hated Campari when I first tried it, so figured I'd give this a shot too. I've liked it (the Fernet) in some things but it's never really sung for me. I did successfully employ it to settle my stomach after eating too much once
I'm not even getting the snooty satisfaction, drinking it at home and all
At least I can build up my tolerance, so I can knock back my shots without hesitation and gain admission into the Inner Circle of the next overpriced cocktail bar I find.
Yup, I get palette and mental fatigue after 10 or so really good cocktails. I want to shut off my senses after awhile.
They take a different shot on the left coast, can't remember what it is.
This is SO true in the scotch world. Bourbon, rye, and rum all have their medians far lower.
I've always wanted to try this, but forget whenever I open a bottle of port. I never seem to get the same colors out of my cocktails that Haigh has in his book, either. The Coffee Cocktail really does look like coffee in the book, but does not at all seem like it would be that color unless the port was tawny. I have had similar problems with the Communist and the Blood and Sand, both of which look terrible. I have begun to suspect that the drinks in the pictures are not always the actual drinks, because they all look too pretty. Some of these cocktails have a distinctly crappy color.
Yeah, I've tried it a couple of times and still pretty much think the same thing. Ugh. I got it to make the Hanky Panky, too, but have never actually tried it. I also don't like Cynar, though I have not had it in a very long time and I have liked every other amaro I've ever tried (Nonino, Ramazotti, Averna, Meletti, et. al.). It's the peppermint/menthol thing in Fernet that I really don't like, especially against its earthy background. That menthol is also dramatically present in two Campari substitutes: Luxardo Bitter and Gran Classico. I can deal with it in the Gran Classico, but not in the Luxardo.
This is itself stealth snootiness.
