Will be ordering that mixing glass soon.

Tonight, ordered a two litre American oak charred oak barrel. Will be doing some cask conditioned cocktails soon. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

JM's blog post looks interesting. I'd probably do it if there were 500ml casks around. laugh.gif

Morgenthaler uses a food processor to make crushed ice. Never thought about that. Has anyone of you tried it out?

Anybody try Underberg bitters? Store around here has them but I've never heard of it before.

So far I have Angostura, Peychaud's, and Bitter Truth Orange. Never been sure I can tell the difference but I haven't been systematic about testing.

Add a dash to a teaspoon, try it.

I like putting a few drops in soda water to taste bitters.

This is the barrel I bought last night in the 2 litre size:

Plan to load it up with something on Labour Day weekend to be ready for the US Thanksgiving.

Is it really printed with "Scottish drinking team" ??? Only the Scottish and Koreans could do something like that, I just saw "Korean drinking team" somewhere recently.

I drink bitters in cloudy lemonade quite often - Lemon, Lime, and Bitters. They don't sell a cloudy lemonade outside of the UK or Australia so I often mix a French cloudy lemonade with Sprite or something similar and then do the bitters at the top, like 10-15 shakes. Makes a good drink for someone addicted to fixing drinks for themselves, but trying to get off the bottle.

I would have gotten this except they spelled "whisky" funny:

Done. Full of peppery ginger flavour. I plan to make some Dark and Stormy tonight.

Pio,
Make sure you report on the flavour of each. I am interested in the Bolivar and Jamaica no. 2.

Tasted the Blackstrap and the #2. The #2 is very floral/citrus smelling. Ditto on the taste, but of course, an underlying bitterness. Think fruit pith. The Blackstrap is dark, sweet, smokey, and very bitter. This one think bitter coffee.

I couldn't see it in the pic you put up, but did you get the cherry bark vanilla bitters as well?
