Nah, it’s the Bungalow, they just opened a new one in Long Beach. The Santa Monica and Huntington Beach locations are fantastic.
One of my best friends just mentioned the Long Beach opening, another reason to head down there.

Nice, will have to try those. Need to get some blue curaçao. Recipe wasn't exact, just what I posted: Tequila, rhubarb simple syrup, lemon, punt e mes. Going to fiddle around with it and get some proportions going.
Don't buy blue curacao. Just pour some of your orange curacao (hopefully ferrand...) into a jar and put blue food color in. It's the same thing.

Little taste test here... The hi-balls were Larceny, with lemon and Schweppes. Went straight, then couple drops of distilled. Realize the Russell’s wasn’t as high proof, but still. Finished 1. RB, 2. SJr, 3. RR. Reopened my eyes to RB. It’d been a while...

Try the RR store picks - far better than the 10yr

Interesting. Will do. The RB is simply fantastic though. Not sure how I’ve let it slide for so long. Another thing I rediscover from time to time, is how Blanton’s is quite nice... until you put it up against other bourbons head to head. It somehow seems to always fall short. Not sure how that happens. I mean, every time I have it on its own it’s very enjoyable, but as soon as I pour almost any other stalwart, (which cost significantly less btw), next to it, it seems to pale. 🤷‍♂️ Buzzed ramblings here. Goodnight.

Anniversary dinner at Ironside. Everything was good. Wrapped it up with J.M. VSOP.
Decent spirits list. Rum side here...

I’d been eying the J.M. for a while and remembered you commenting here it was good. Really enjoyed it neat. Will acquire a bottle soon.

Aviation. Trying out the roku gin as I’ve heard it’s real nice. Did a mix of lemon and lime juice instead of just lemon due to the botanicals in the roku. Very very nice actually.

I've had the same bottle of Rothman and Winter creme de violette forever. It certainly adds a dramatic touch to Aviations but it barely tastes like anything.

Does the Bitter Truth version actually bring a distinct flavor to the drink?
