Cognac. PF Reserve from a Reidel Som XO glass. I am finishing up a semester, am totally sick of it, my girlfriend has been away and I am in a bad, bad mood. But this spirit is really, really, really soothing. I have not had cognac in a while and forgot how much I liked it.
Also not sure I can restrain myself well with a cask of Negroni. It's turned into my (almost) daily drink. I could barely stomach Campari earlier this year
Drinking one now actually, albeit with a splash of Cherry Marnier. Not sure it really adds anything special, but it's a little different.
The first night that I tapped that puppy was actually hard. I measured out 3 oz so I would know how much I was drinking. I had two, and I really, really, really wanted to go back to the well. Hard. I remember, I had a paper due, so I didn;t.
Cherry Marnier!! I have a bottle from the '70s that my father got for a gift; I know it is sold but I have not seen one since. I love cherry flavors in cocktails, and am always trying to work them in; must have like 5 cherry spirits.
Tonight, an Aurora, a concoction I couldn't find anywhere else on the web when I came up with it a few years ago, despite the simple recipe, so I named it myself and claim it as my own. IMO, it's really good. I've mentioned it a few times here.
2.5ish oz gin (Death's Door tonight)
.75 oz St. Germain
.75 oz Lime Juice
Shaken, garnished with a lime twist.
I should make this because it sounds excellent.
