What are you drinking right now? - Page 1014

Russel's Reserve single barrel rye is pretty good. It's not Pappy/Sazerac 18/Thomas Handy/etc tier, but it's widely available and it's not made from Midwestern rye distillate.

Two Cuba Libres. Rest of the Gigondas. Martini Gran Lusso as apéritif. Barbados XO and now some DoubleWood as digestif.

Tomorrow I'm gonna abstain. satisfied.gif

Some staples I just picked up for cocktails. Are these pretty good bottles for this price range?

I'm not at all a fan of Cuervo, but everything else is pretty decent. I'd recommend bumping your price point up a bit in the future and getting something like Espolon or Milagro in the $20+ range.

Funny that you bought the top shelf curacao and cheap tequila tounge.gif


The Flor de Cana is great, especially for the price.

Since when does Sailor Jerry come in a sleeve?

Anyway, Project Paso Cab right now, likely a hot buttered rum next. I've really been enjoying those this fall already- I just made a big batch of the batter (recipe I used has 2 cups brown sugar and a stick of butter blended with spices, basically), rolled it into sticks, put 'em in wax paper and a ziplock, and stuck 'em in the freezer. You just cut off a chunk- about 1.5 T worth, more or less depending on taste- and add your rum and hot water.

Sailor Jerry would go really well in that, come to think of it. Haven't had spiced rum around for a while, should pick up a bottle.

Okay guys, after my PT test December first, I plan on making a shit ton of eggnog. I've used Alton Brown's recipe and am a fran. Anyone have any other good recipes? What do you guys put in yours? Bourbon, rum, or brandy?

The Clyde Common Egg Nog (Amontillado + reposado/anejo Tequila) is soo good. I'll definitely make a bit this year. The brandy one is good too. But the Clyde Common one is better.

Saw the eggnog out last week already! I'm going to try to limit my consumption to 2 weeks this year. That ought to keep me under the 10 gallon nog/2 gallon booze/10 bazillion calories threshold. LOL Damn I loooove egg nog!

Yes, I have an amazing one. I make it every year. I'm now famous for it. Honestly, I stole it from a friend who was famous for it. That's why I can't give it out. This is a CRAZY high proof recipe, though. I've had eggnog last 10 months without going south, when kept in the fridge. That's right, kids, 10 months without spoiling. Not that I was inclined to drink it at that point, but you put enough fortification in dairy and the hands of time stand still. I would not have believed this if I hadn't done it myself, but it works. Plus my recipe doesn't even start to peak until 3-4 weeks in and is singing at 8 weeks. Strange, but true, very tastey, and very alcoholic.

Probably does not make a difference, but I use all organic dairy and eggs and premiumish spirits. I used to use Weller 107 as one of the key ingredients every year to make it ... those days are gone, however.

Back to the topic at hand, I'm drinking straight bourbon (still at the office) but am eager to return to the Applejack cocktails I started experimenting with last month. Looking forward to it -- also going to pick up a bottle Arkansas Black.

Not to worry. Two posts above his you can find the world's best eggnog recipe.

...unless Girardian wants to prove that his recipe is superior? mwink[1].gif

I use the Velvet Tango Room's eggnog recipe, though I use half Zacapa for the rum, which makes it ridiculous.
