    This was honestly so damn good. Just wish it was slightly higher proof (although I think most piscos are 40%). That funky herbal quality, whatever grape they use has this balanced flowery notes, sweetness is on point

    Also various things from sipsmith. The London gin is great

    With crabcakes. Enjoyable (you have to like dry whites, of course.)

    Eh, still too low. I'm not comfortable buying decants from you! ;)

    Today: mulled wine, Dark & Stormy, crémant.

    I still haven't made an Old Fashioned with the orange/vanilla bourbon, Piob. But I've sampled it a few more times (even today). Really good now, as far as I can tell. I'll prolly try it out tomorrow. Will report back. o7

    Brennan's Milk Punch, a vaguely lighter egg nog. I'll be making the Velvet Tango Room's egg nog tomorrow night for Christmas Eve and use what's left for French Toast on Christmas Day.

    Started the evening with a Cable Car, to my mind the most Christmasy cocktail of all!

    Morgenthaler's egg nog (did the Velvet Tango Room's version last weekend) while my wife is trying to get the last kid in bed. Really good, its hard not to drink more of it than one glass! Started the evening with a Cable Car (probably my favorite Christmas cocktail) and had a '96 Pensees de LaFleur with dinner.

    Infused 5 year rum with satsuma and lime rinds for a day, then added the juice from the citrus, dark rum, falernum, and just the right amounts of allspice dram and ginger liqueur to give it some spice but not end up cloying. By request served it shaken and strained but would have been better on the rocks. Either way, it was fantastic.

    The orange/vanilla infused bourbon is great in an Old Fashioned. Needs much less simply syrup though or else it gets too sweet. Also: the drink turns cloudy (probably from the coldness?!). Do you have the same "problem", Piob?
