Driving amongst crazy people in a snowstorm is really stressful.

A true problem is that as good as the classics are -- and there are many I can reccomend to you -- rare is the bar that can make them well. An Old Fashioned is not a bad choice, but often abysmal in preparation. A rusty nail is really hard to screw up, but I use it as a dessert drink. Are you drinking in Cinci? Orchids can probably make a good drink, and there was a bartender named Stephen at Via Viche (or something like that) who had serious flair. Also, if you ever go to Cleveland, I can tell you where to get some real drinks.

The Sidecar is a stunner. It started the cocktail revolution to me. Wille -- try an Alexander sometime! I think its so much better -- it is like a brandy Alexander, but the original, made with gin, which cuts the richness of it. ~ H

Yep! Green tube/bottle, right?

Is this in regards to me, because if so, I don't know where you get your information.

I have gone to Via Vite before, and yes they make a decent drink. The normal places I go to with friends I usually just get beers though. I figure if I don't know how to make something, chances are the bartender won't either.

Yep. It's on tap for tonight. There were 2 15 year olds there, the Revival, and something else, so I bought the Revival since the other seemed like a line extension.

Also picked up one of those single village mezcals on a whim. Amazing, unlike any tequila I have ever tried.

The other 15 year old might have been the old version which isn't as good. The one you got is stellar though.

In terms of the mezcal is it one of these?



If so, yes, they are awesome. I have one open now (don't remember off hand which one) that I don't drink enough of and I was planning on picking up a couple more villages to try them out.

Yes, that is the one. The one I got was the Santo Domingo Albaraddos. I plan on getting the other 3 today and keeping them in my bunker. Very, very good stuff.

Do you have a taste for scotch at all? If so, order a Blood and Sand. If the bartender doesn't know how to make it (and he probably won't unless you're at a genuine cocktail bar), tell him it's equal parts scotch, sweet vermouth, maraschino liqueur, and orange juice shaken over ice. The smokiness of the scotch and the sweetness of the maraschino make a very nice combination.

Agreed! just make sure he uses an Islay not a Spyside or it will be too sweet.

So I dropped by package store to buy another Aberlour a'Bunadh and a bottle of Flor de Cana 18 year old, and decided to buy this one, given the great experience I had with the other. Will let you know how I like it.
