    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I had a Chartreuse cocktail once that was outstanding, but I can't remember the name. Chartreuse, gin, grapefruit, St. Germain. Something like that.

    3 oz blood orange juice
    2 oz good silver tequila (i like el tesoro)
    1 oz cointreau
    dash of agave syrup

    shake and strain over a few cubes of ice in a salt-rimmed old-fashioned glass.

    Chartreuse verte and grapefruit juice shaken with an egg white is called a 'St. Germain' - maybe it was that?

    I couldn't pick just one, but I tend to gravitate towards:

    Dirty martini (gin, of course), a little heavier on the vermouth
    Bourbon Manhattan, splash of "juice" from the cherries
    Bourbon and Dry Ginger
    G&T
    Negroni
    Old Fashioned

    I don't think there was an egg, and there was definitely St. Germain. I just asked the bartender to surprise me with with a chartreuse cocktail and that's what I got. Never asked what it was called.

    Assuming that you misremember the grapefruit part, probably "The Gypsy":

    1½ parts \tGin
    ¾ part \tSt-Germain
    ½ part \tGreen Chartreuse
    ½ part \tFreshly Squeezed Lime Juice

    Yes, that could be it, although I might need to rename it something less feminine.

    A good cognac, Drambui, or Grand Marnier. Also a good old single malt scotch-Glenlivet or Glenfiddich-at least 30 yrs old. Very smooth, especially with a good cigar! La Gloria Cubana Maduro Serie R No. 6 for me.

    for some reason, i am inexplicably fond of rum + oj.

    The myers bottle has had, at least at one point, a drink called the sharkbite listed on the back, which is Dark rum (duh), grenadine and OJ. At one point, being out of grenadine, I decided to sub in something else sickly sweet. I used half a shot of amaretto.

    Much better IMO, and I suggest you try it. I've made it for friends before, and everyone loves it. An aged or spiced rum seems to work just as well as the full out dark, though white doesn't seem to cut it. Dirt simple too. Pour a shot of rum and half a shot of amaretto over ice in a tumbler, fill with OJ.

    Definitely Blue Label on rocks. If it's a casual setting then Hennessy rocks it is.
