The Corralejo Reposado is quite good. Way better than the Sauza Hornitos. Makes a good Margarita. Will try in an Old Fashioned now.

Went to Wise Men in NYC. Bar tender was a total douche and pretty off putting. Drinks were good though. The mescal cocktail was nice and smokey (first time trying mescal). Last Word tasted like every last word ever, which means it was delicious. Girlfriend wasn't too over the top about her drinks. Her first one "tasted like a salad." Overall, decent experience.

Last Word and Suffering Bastard

Mescal Bijou and Black Pearl

Jasper’s Jamaican Planter’s Punch

Tried this last night for the first time, subbed in Barrilito rum (puerto rico). The nutmeg tends to preserve the caramel taste of the liquor and make for a pleasingly rum-forward cocktail.

[copied the recipe from this book. also, I only had orange slices, which was plenty]


1.5 oz dark Jamaican rum (Coruba)
1.5 oz Jasper’s Secret Mix (see below)

Add to a 10-ounce highball glass filled with cracked ice. Stir vigorously. Top off with more ice.

Jasper garnished his with a pineapple spear, an orange slice, and a cocktail cherry.

Steve garnishes his with fresh mint.


Jasper’s Secret Mix

Juice of 12 limes
1.5 cups sugar
1.25 oz Angostura bitters
½ whole nutmeg, grated

Stir the ingredients together in a mixing vessel until the sugar dissolves.

Let steep in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

Good choice, rump

Corralejo Reposado neat. Pretty good. I need to delve further into tequila. Speaking of tequila, I need to pick up some sherry soon to make Clyde Common's egg nog.

Also, a Dark & Stormy.

Sipping on some Don Julio Anejo now. Maybe a Margarita afterwards.

Yeah for sure.... drank it a bunch in Mexico. Nothing particularly special, but certainly not bad for the price!

and speaking of price-point drinking... Two Buck Chuck Cab Sav! lol

Had a little of Masterson's Rye yesterday. Nice and spicy, lots of baking spices at first, little bit of sweetness mid palate and then a little heat from the alcohol on the finish. Fantastic for a cold cold (think -35) night.

Forty Creek Heart of Gold. Not much of a Canadian whisky drinker, but this is nice.
