    I just did something with rye and fernet and campari and bitters and a good basque vermouth that doesn't taste as good as it did when I fussed with the same thing using gin, but didn't taste bad either. In fact, it tasted so not bad that I did it a second time.

    I'd try without the fernet and add a citrus twist.

    Yessss, sazeracs rule. I need to get my bar back together asap so I can put a good one together. So far the sazerac pickings are slim since moving away from NO. What's your absinthe of choice?

    Some people might say it's overkill for a Saz, but I think it's just right. Don't blow $ on St. George, idk why it's so popular, should be like $15-$20.

    Ah a good Mezcal, fresh lime juice, and a bit of agave mix. If you like smoke Mezcals the way to go.

    Went to a buddy's Halloween party. Brought some snacks (courtesy of my girlfriend) and I made a apple pie punch that was fantastic:

    1 L Flor de Cana (dark rum)
    750 mL Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey (or whatever you'd prefer for cinnamon flavor)
    1.5 gallons Apple Cider
    1 lb apple, sliced for garnish

    Pour together over ice in a punch bowl/dispenser. Eat beforehand, and don't end up in the spare bedroom at the end of the night because of an extra hour due to daylight savings, stealth drunk, and pizza by the slice

    Someone recommend me a moderately sized wine cooler/cabinet thing. Ideally something that can store champagne or other types of bottles too? This won't be going under any counters. Would prefer if it didn't sound like a jet engine and give off more heat than a coal plant.

    PS '02 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill >>>> just about any other champagne I've had in that price range.

    Been cooking through the Ottolenghi book Nopi (see the SW&D Food thread for food pics) but there's also a bunch of cocktails. The lady and I made some rooibos syrup for a roibos old fashioned, and now we have a bottle of frenet branca to use. I've been making Torontos, because a food poisoning association with vermouth makes me unable to drink Manhattans, which would be otherwise be something I really liked.

    Sounds dope.

    I made some basil simple syrup this weekend that I'll be turning into basil sour mix tonight before trying it out. I think this thread told me to do that like 3 years ago, so thanks guys

    There is such a broad range of sweet vermouth available today that they are similar only in name, and I am sure that you could get away from the taste memory with a vermouth on the end of the range. I will assume that the association is probably with Martini & Rossi, so, I'd consider Dolin Rouge for a fruity, winey, and very light vermouth -- this is a French sweet, and totally different from the M&R Turin style. The other option is Punt E Mes, which is a cross between a vermouth and an amaro. Since you drink Fernet that might work. You could also add a barspoon of Fernet to your Manhattans.

    Lastly, Lillet Rouge makes a very decent Manhattan on its own -- very wine-y.

    All that is true. Find a vermouth you can like!
