How do you like the starlino as compared to the luxardo?
That's what I aim to find out...
Starlino was highly recommended by the liquor distributor to my local mega-boozery.
He says better than Luxardo.

Forgot to pick up peychauds bitters so ended up making a modified sazerac with armagnac instead of cognac (which works so nicely), and a it of chocolate bitters instead. Quite delicious.

Now the question is since absinthe has gotten into the mix, should I do an arsenic and old lace next, or a necromancer?

Well I ended up doing both.



Necromancer time. With a name like that you'd think it would be a scarier, more intense cocktail. But I imagine it's just called that because it's tasty enough to wake the dead.

Later a biodynamic Pino Noir from the Adelaide Hills served chilled with pizzas and Los Pumas V All Blacks.

Drinkware question for you all: What size are your coupe glasses? I just bought a set of 5.5 oz. glasses to replace my 7 oz. glasses, most of which broke. My drinks served up are the classic size, which means 3 to 3.5 oz. of liquid before dilution and 4 oz. +/- 0.25 oz. after dilution. This fills the 5.5 oz. coupe glass almost to the rim. I'm wondering if this makes the drink more prone to spillage while drinking. Or maybe I'm overthinking this.

I think my martini glasses are 5.5 oz and that's what I use for all my up drinks. Dont have a spillage problem until I'm a few in. At that point it's not the glass's fault.

Postscript: I was wrong. I just measured and the martini glasses are 7 oz.

My go to glass for martinis are Rona coupes, about five years old, part of their food service line. Eight ounces. Four ounces of spirit, .5 of vermouth, two large olives and they get filled nicely with the melt.
