Classic. I do a little mixture of Laird’s, collagen and turmeric powder myself… after that first delicious pour of blackness from my French press on its own.

Had for the first time some amaro pasubio tonight. Think I need to pick up a bottle, as I love me some pine.

Had a couple of these tonight trying out this new clairin. Surprised it’s not a thing, so I’m dubbing it a lazy man’s Hemingway:

2 oz clairin
0.75 oz maraschino liqueur
Juice of a lime (~1.25 oz)
Shake with ice and strain
no garnish because lazy

real damn delicious, perhaps in part to this clairin being fantastic.

Speaking of pine… I obtained some pine oil and sprayed a couple of pumps into a rocks glass before adding in my Negroni. It’s a really nice twist on a classic. I wouldn’t do it all the time, but it’s a refreshing change here and there.

That sounds so good right now, @tdes81. No grapefruit juice though? I’m sure it’s delicious as is. I’ve definitely been eying Clarins myself, of late. You just inspired me to pull the trigger sooner than later. I love a well-shook daiquiri and all those little shards of ice… goddamn.

Totally underrated as a garnish or addition to a cocktail IMO. Not for everyone, but I love it.

Hence the lazy man's hemmingway. Didn't have grapefruits and couldn't be assed to squeeze them if I did. But honestly I'm not missing it. This mix (at least with this clairin) is just delicious. The simplicity isn't hurting anything either. The extra maraschino and lime juice makes up for the lack of simple syrup/grapefruit. Also there's less to get in the way of all the delicious clairin flavors. I bet this would be quite good with a white rum like probitas, but a nice clairin really kicks it up a notch.

This clairin casimir is really really good. Of the few I've had it might be my favorite so far, but will need to do a side by side comparison on the rocks (or straight or in a ti punch) to be sure.

Also getting into the clairins (apart from my love of daiquiris and tropical/tiki drinks) is a good change because my mezcal collection has gone a bit overboard... I could probably drink mezcal every weekend for the next three years and still have some left over. What a rabbit hole that is!

Le Rocher is ridiculously good. I can't believe you can get it for ~$40

Even crazier (not quite a clairin but in the same spirit) - paranubes rum is another level for its price point.
Haven't tried that, but have heard its good. Have you tried the Rivers Royal Antoine (Grenadian Agricole)? It also has some of that funk, and comes in at a scorching 69% (Nice)

I have not, have not even heard of it, but given that scorch it's gonna happen soon.
