    I was really puzzled at first, wondering what kind of church you attend. And then I realized that you meant a different kind of "Easter service."

    Carpano Antico..... worth it?

    I don't want to throw half the bottle away, but am thinking about picking it up when I'm in Chicago in a couple weeks.

    Try before you buy. Carpano Antica has a very strong vanilla flavor that may not be to your liking. It's not really my cup of tea, so I'm sticking to Dolin, which comes in small bottles.

    Yeah, did not know that. I will probably buy Dolin or Noilly Prat. 375s are my lifeblood.

    Dolin Blanc is particularly delicious. It mixes well and is great by itself.

    I bought a bottle recently and have been underwhelmed. I prefer Punt e Mes at around half the price.

    I like it a lot. But only had the NP in comparison, which is quite bland, imo. But yep, the vanilla definitely is there. Anyone had Cocchi Storico?

    In favor of Easter an egg white cocktail

    Round Robin
    1 oz Brandy (substituted with cognac)
    1 oz absinthe (substituted with pastis)
    1 oz egg white
    1 bs syrup
    couple dashes OFW

    Dry shake, then 2 min + shake with ice. I'm quite happy with the result.

    [​IMG]

    When opening my pastis bottle, this happened. :fu:

    [​IMG]

    Rescue attempt failed. Now there a a big part of the cork in it.

    [​IMG]

    Should I do something about it? Or won't it really matter? Only thing I could do is fill the remains in a different bottle...

    Dude, my bottle of North Shore #11 gin suffered a similar fate, except that the entire cork part of the T-top got stuck in the neck while just the black top broke off. WTF

    You should call/email them and tell them. Most distillers are very interested in failures like this and they will probably ask for the bottle or cork back and replace it generously.

    I have my monthly co-op board meeting tonight. :fu: I think I'm going to need a stiff drink immediately beforehand, possibly a martini.

    Had a Rusty Nail. A little too sweet to my taste this time, though. Not sure why. Last time it was good.

    Anyone has some Drambuie cocktail recommendations? And I'm still looking for suggestions for St-Gérmain and Crème de Violette.

    Just bought some Luxardo, Hendricks, and Pabst. I need one more ingredient, but they wanted $10 more a bottle than everywhere else.

    what the heck are you making? :lol: that list sounds like the liquor equivalent of "I'm wearing RLPL, Brioni and Aldo!"
