Chilled glass of bulldog gin.

This stuff is delicious.

I find myself using the Angustura Orange often. Lovely stuff.

A question for you Huntsman, and any others as well. Any thoughts on Martin Miller as an all-around gin for cocktails (G&Ts, etc)?

Pour Angostura bitters on the side of a highball or Collins glass starting from the bottomand twist the glass so it forms a spiral, add ice and a few more drops of bitters, then

Hunts is a fan. I like the regular. The Westbourne strength is one step short of rubbing alcohol.

straight up regular Negroni with Plymouth Gin, Martini & Rossi sweet vermouth and Campari. It's the first time I made one so from recipes I found I just went 1:1:1 proportions. Any suggestions for improvement?

^Different vermouth.
post #9847 of 14320
Yeah, other than changing the brands around, the recipe isn't going to get any different. That is, unless you're trying to make some sort of new age "mixologist" concoction.

I wrote a response to this suggesting flaming an orange twist over it, and use as big an ice cube as you can get as I prefer mine mostly undiluted.

Then I did a quick google and found a video from Jim Meehan making one. Best negroni video I've seen. http://vimeo.com/27493850

I prefer the Negroni's cousin, the Agavoni, which substitutes silver tequila for gin.

If you want to stick with gin, you can consider substituting a radically different one, such as Ransom Old Tom. In place of Campari, you can try Gran Classico, which is said to be closer to the original Campari. This substitution results in a more subtle and complex drink in my opinion.

Agavoni. Not bad but don't think I prefer it.

Then
Ramos Gin Fizz

1.5 oz gin
2 oz cream
1 oz simple syrup
0.5 oz lemon juice
0.5 oz lime juice
1 egg white
two drops of Angostura orange bitters (no orange flower water and I thought it might fit better than rose flower water for the first try)
shake dry first

It's nice but somehow .. erm.. like when you eat a cake with too much baking powder and your teeth get all furry or whatever. I think I like a "normal" Ginz Fizz better.
Foam is, I guess, ok, but still much improvable by better skillz.

Edit: Actually, no, I don't like it. imo cream doesn't fit in there. Not sure whether I like egg white in drinks either, but that was just the first one I've had with it, thus my experience is pretty limited and I don't want to judge it yet.

Try a pisco sour. I love 'em.

B1os - your Ramos needs work. It should be like a slightly floral, frothy, gin-y eggnog.
post #9853 of 14320
Hm. Eggnog is egg yolk. Far different texture from egg white.
Do you mean the foam shouldn't be seperated (like it's the case at my Ramos) but the whole drink should be one foam?
post #9854 of 14320
Ok. The foam is seperated. But there is much more foam. And much finer one. I'll just blend the egg white with my Zauberstab/bamix next time lol8[1].gif
I've done everything right, theoretically, just not long and hard enough.
