    Had a little of Masterson's Rye yesterday. Nice and spicy, lots of baking spices at first, little bit of sweetness mid palate and then a little heat from the alcohol on the finish. Fantastic for a cold cold (think -35) night.

    Forty Creek Heart of Gold. Not much of a Canadian whisky drinker, but this is nice.

    I can't believe those are all Cleveland recipes. That first one is from L'Albatros; used to be called That Place Bistro when I was in undergrad. VTR sounds fantastic though...may give it a try over the holidays.

    I think I've tried that one last year too. Which rum did you use? Either way, the sherry/tequila combo is just great.

    We made some yesterday, I'm going off hazy memory:

    4 oz sailor Jerry
    4 oz E&J brandy XO (only the good shit)
    12 oz whole milk
    8 oz heavy cream
    4 eggs
    Maybe 3 oz sugar
    Nutmeg

    [​IMG]

    gonna make a foam out of some for a cocktail


    Upon reading blow's post we used Morgenthaler's recipe, but doubled the booze.

    Hardly had any of my Sipsmith Summer Cup so far. Now that it's almost Christmas, it makes perfect sense to bring it out. Tastes really good with Fever-Tree ginger ale. I might have to experience some more with it (for example in a Manhattan instead of vermouth, or in a Negroni etc.).

    Equal parts Gran Classico Bitters, Sipsmith Summer Cup, Broker's. Really quite good, maybe a tad too sweet.
