    About ready to shake up a classic Margarita. I part tequila, 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 part Cointreau.

    I really like blanca for a fresh, clean agave taste. I'll be using this, one of my favorites.

    Shaken and then poured with the ice into a glass. No salt. I find that good blanca has enough of a salty after taste. Extra salt covers of the good flavor.

    Tried it with a cheap Prosecco, but did not like the bitterness after taste. Aperol looks so delicious and refreshing, so I'm going to try it with a sweeter Muscato or Asti and see what happens.

    Thanks,

    Chris Lowder? Great guy, I was really sad when he left NY, he was managing bar at The Nomad. They have a cocktail on their list called Seoul Mate named in his honor. He's definitely one of the most talented bartenders I've ever met.

    1 Oz Gin
    1 Oz Apple jack
    1 Oz Campari
    Spoonful of home made rhubarb jam my mother in law made

    Bitter and very good.

    Last night was a 50/50 gin martini. That's an underrated drink in today's cocktail world.

    A very well regarded bartender in DC makes his signature martini with chilled Plymouth and a 1:1 ratio "the way God intended."

    Drinking it right now. With my homemade tonic water (this time with 2 pods of cardamom, a few peppercorns, one kaffir lime leaf, and a very short infusion with black tea because I only had 5g of gentian root). Very good. The homemade tonic makes it more complex by adding a further layer of bitterness and more citrus richness. Good stuff.

    Funny. Met him when we went for drinks (and karaoke) after a dinner event (at the 4S) in April. Small world.

    Decided to challenge myself and not drink for 5 weeks so I haven't posted anything in a while. Made a mint julep for the first time last night though.

    It was delicious.
