    It’s a fun mix to me. Nice floral notes, vaguely reminiscent of Oban. A more subtle smokiness than Lagavulin/Laphroaig. Makes for a really nice smell and taste.

    My new favorite store-bought ginger beer:

    [​IMG]

    From Denmark, organic. Just 8.5 g / 100 ml sugar (Thomas Henry has 14 g, Schweppes 13.4, ...). Ingredients: carbonated water, ginger root extract (12%), cane sugar, grape fruit juice (3%), lemon juice, brewers yeast, chili. Tastes relatively close to Morgenthaler's recipe. Also relatively affordable (1.39 € / 330 ml). Highly recommended! Might still prefer Fever-Tree's, but it's more expensive and has more sugar as well, iirc (also not organic, fwiw). Will have to do a side-by-side someday.

    Played around with my Vesper recipe and used my many guests as test subjects. Think the recipe I've dialed in is:

    .5 oz gin
    .75 oz Cocchi Americano
    2.5 oz vodka

    Stir, garnish with lemon twist. Go for a gin that's more botanical than juniper.

    Any New Year's drinking resolutions? I'm going to try to drink more economically, for health and financial reasons. That means limiting myself to a two-drink maximum at a bar (let's see how that works out!) and buying less expensive spirits for home consumption (and drinking less at home) where possible. Obviously the latter strategy has some limits -- there's no substitute for the pricey Amaro Nonino, for example -- but I think I can get away with cheaper base spirits for my mixed drinks. The vast majority of my mixed drinks are gin or whiskey based, and I've gone with handles of Beefeater's and Buffalo Trace, respectively.

    Be on the look out for HPP juice. I imagine this is going to be used by every bar across the country. I was working on a juicing and syrup business to supply local bars/restaurants. This week a juice company came into town selling lime juice for about $10/liter. This is around the cost of a bar producing their juice in house. The product retains all flavor for 40 days. This shit is pretty amazing. I think there are some product innovations I'm gonna explore further. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
