too bad you can't get some ripe pineapple as it should be super sweet.... & now you've got me thinking of using up this coconut milk and Appleton Estate in a pina colada ...
If you want to try a stronger drink, try Schumann's Swimmingpool:
2cl white rum
2cl cream of coconut
6cl pineapple juice
1cl blue curaçao poured on top
When I've done it, I've replaced the vodka with more white rum and the cream with more cream of coconut.
You know.. some are ripe and some aren't. Can't always tell how they will ripe at home and they mostly aren't ripe when you buy them.. Some are sweet but it still burns. It's that shitty enzyme. Probably a little allergic to it.
Dolin makes really awesome vermouths, but they are so particular! It is coincidence that you posted this, as I opened my last 375 of the Blanc to make my Tuxedo #2 tonight (with b10os' Pernod). I do think it might have been a little sweet for my cocktail, I admit, but still I love that stuff!
Nice! I really enjoy the Martinez. I don't think I'd call it a Martini, especially as it predates the martini, and some consider it to be a progenitor of the martini. It's just a cocktail, which is certainly a noble enough title!
And welcome to the forum!
Well, it might be if you prefer it, but the Martinez is a sweet vermouth cocktail.
Rose's or no? I am not a fan, and make a simple lime cordial for my Gimlets.~

The line "If the guest prefers it very sweet, [...]" could mean that it already is sweet (therefore sweet vermouth).
