What are you drinking right now? - Page 802

The Last Word. So good.

Hemmingways while studying Federal Courts (rocking the Independent and Adequate State Grounds)

 

1.5 oz White Rum (I love El Dorado 3yr)

0.5 oz Maraschino (as much as I think Leopold is the best, Luxardo does a better job)

0.5 oz Grapefruit Juice

0.5 oz Lime Juice

Splash simple.

 

Hard shake, strain only with a Hawthorne to leave the shards. Garnish with a smallish wedge of grapefruit.

When in Vegas I highly suggest stopping in to check out the bar at Emeril's Delmonico steakhouse. We stopped in for a cocktail were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. The head of all Emeril's Vegas beverage programs was working the bar, Max Solano. A very humble, friendly guy with a great knowledge of all things boozey. We got to chatting and he had me try a bourbon drink he's not got on the menu yet. So good I had to have three.

He talks about creating a full sensory experience with his drinks, visual, olfactory, and taste. He really crafts great cocktails and the list is full of old classics. If you do not see one you are hankering for on the menu he knows it and will accommodate. Just really a great guy and one of those unlooked for positive experiences.

Also, got to try out my new travel bar.

I've been thinking to myself, "Self, you're drinking way too much. You gotta cut back for the sake of your wellbeing." And then I open this thread and Piob inspires me to stay the course.

That's cute. I've been wanting one of those, but have figured I need to do it myself to have exactly what I want.

Actually never had one, but it sounds very delicious and refreshing. Not sure whether I have any white rum left, but if I don't, I'll look out for El Dorado 3. Actually, I think I have some Appleton's, but I strongly dislike it.

I bought that on a lark last weekend for this trip. We were upgraded to this incredible suite at the Four Seasons, 180 degree views, floor to ceiling windows about 12 feet high. Was great to finish each night with a drink and look at the city spread out below us.

I'm having one too. Truly a classic. Also a pretty good test for a bartender. If your bartender doesn't know how to make it, leave the bar and find a bartender who does.

I usually don't drink when studying. But obviously there are exceptions. Today would be one. Had a Carlos Primero with an espresso earlier this evening. Then the TLW. In between a few high-caffeine drinks like espresso or Fritz-kola (a coke from Hamburg with 25mg caffeine per 100ml which also tastes amazing). Given that I'll probably study one or two more hours, I'll likely have another drink soon. I'll keep you updated! smile.gif

Need you ask?  Today is Cinco de Mayo!

 

Margarita, of course......  Not a good one as I was out of limes, so used a mix.

 

Salud,

Had a Negroni before dinner (naturally). Just finished a Leatherneck:

2 ounces blended whiskey

3/4 ounce blue curaçao

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice


Surprisingly good. Didn't use blue cuarcao, so the color was a little weird, but still tasty. Had a nice smoky note under the orange and lime.

All I have to say is; wtf is a margarita.

Since I've almost finished the hand-in excercises, some Ardbeg 10 (couldn't find the Airigh Nam Beist).
