    That coupe just came from a standard housewares store. 4 for $10. The old fashioned are from Williams Sonoma (Dorset) or else Ralph Lauren Glen Plaid. The other cut crystal coupe is an old Stuart Crystal pattern.

    You're making me regret never getting around to laying down any casks this year.

    Corsair Triple Smoke
    Lemon juice
    Allspice dram
    Agave syrup
    Luxardo Cherry (not maraschino)


    Zippy.

    Allspice dram? Did you make your own? I need to lay some of that down.

    Ind: not too woody. Intense, yes. Ice mellowing it. Ullage noticeable but still great.

    Yeah, homemade. I don't have a standard of comparison, but it seems like it came out well. It's hot, very spicy. I usually use less than cocktail recipes call for or it gets overwhelming.

    Me again,

    Tisdale Cab (3/$10)... I know, I know... Once my collection is gone I will move up the Cab ladder a little, but still under $10 for my daily drinker. Any quick suggestions?

    Thanks and cheers.....

    I made this last night after I pondered about cocktails during a run.

    2 oz. El Dorado 15 rum
    1 oz. King's Ginger Liqueur

    I figured it was a deconstructed variant of a Dark and Stormy. I had made ice balls with mint frozen in them, and added a wedge of lime. It was really, really good.

    I haven't seen a recipe like this before and if it is new, I am debating calling it Foreboding Weather.

    I do. But I tend to prefer boozier drinks to ones served up.

    Up has nothing to do with carbonation or booziness. Up means stirred or shaken with ice, strained and served in a glass with no ice.
