Sorry, not a chance. That post is bound to be conserved on the Internet forever and ever.

Hint: I actually know what a margarita is, didn't think anyone would be confused by that part.

Pretty good. Luxardo and grapefuit juice are very good partners, as in the 7th Heaven. I am not a fan of white rum, but the El Dorado impressed me. Flor de Cana 5 (I think) is also good. I am not a huge fan of Appleton.

Noice (as you would say). I need to have a travel bar because I always get tagged to make cocktails and never have good accoutrements. I will need to assemble it myself, though, because I am so anal. Meehan (PDT) and Thrasher (PX) are capitalizing on their fame with custom little traveling bars.....good work if you can get it!

Studying myself. I usually don't drink until the last hour of studying, but there are exceptions, I agree. Like this De La Louisianne.

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.

 

You know, I just can 't bring myself to use it. I hate artificial colors and can't avoid it so often (Campari, QED), that I do whenever it is discretionary.

Those sound interesting. For what I paid for this one I am not adverse to dumping it for something interesting.

Yes, I was the designated bartender for our little group. Thankfully they are all easy to please. I did bring some Bittercube bitters with me so my whisky drinks were nice.

Speaking of PDT I have a note somewhere on a great book suggested to me by Max from Delmonico. It comes in e-version too and he handed me his iPad to leaf through it. Will find the note this weekend and post the name of the book (bet you already have it though.)

There is a reason I don't have blue curacao. Also, I doubt the availability of anything that would stack up to decent uncolored versions and I'm not going to drink crappy stuff just for the color. It does make for an interesting green color in the Leatherneck though, or so shows the picture in my book.

Picked up a bottle of Combier today, going to see how I like it over Cointreau (my usual). I've also got a bottle of Solerno blood orange liqueur, which is interesting but somewhat limiting. Makes a nice margarita though.


It's a shame Campari went to artificial coloring instead of the cochineal dye, but what can you do?

Fun fact about Vinmonopolet: they have a monopoly on selling alcohol above 4,7% ABV in Norway (Vinmonopolet literally means the wine monopoly).
They're owned by the state, and they are limited in terms of how much they can profit from each unit. For specialty products they can't have more than a ~45 USD markup after local taxes. Anyways, we have two specialty stores and they occasionally stock really expensive, vintage wines. Those bottles might retail for $1000 here, while they would normally be double or even more.

Not sure about how much whisky they stock, but I'm sure it's possible to do some real bargains on limited collections.
How did you come across the Laphroaig Tom Miller?

My friend got it as a gift in Denamark. I was a bit confused cuz myslef and neither of my friends knew Vinmonopolet as independent whisky bottler and it was kinda difficult ti find info on it (other than that it is a state monopoly which was confusing)...

Try it with a Genever or a barrel aged Old Tom!

1:1:1 Rye/vermouth rosso/Bénédictine, dash bitters, right? It was good but too sweet, imo.
