    I can't just change the name of the first American cocktail ever created.
    Take credit for someone else's invention. It's the American way!
    I always root for the Old Fashioned in that role -- a long rivalry. Why does it seem that everyone needs everything to have bling these days? The Sazerac is a fine name. ~ H
    Mostly because nobody knows about these drinks and they really should be more popular. I'm fine with Sazerac cocktail myself but I've been to a few bars and the bartenders have had absolutely no idea what it is. I love when they have to refer to the bar-tending guide. At that point, I usually go with something on the rocks. According to the cocktail Wiki, the Old Fashioned was 1st.

    I am partial to a Sazerac over an Old Fashioned. Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy an Old Fashioned. But I'm a great rye fan and I prefer it, as well as cognac, to bourbon. When it comes down to it, the choice between an Old Fashioned and a Sazerac is the same as between a chrysanthemum and a carnation. Whatever suits your circumstances and mood takes the day.

    Had this little bottle last night with some double creme brie.

    85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia Nero

    Alone it's very spicey and meaty up front with carmalized red fruits coming in for the finish with nice tannins rounding out the acidity.

    With the brie there's more of a vanillia note on the front with ripe blueberries finishing it off.

    Not bad for $13

    St. Rogue Red Ale.

    Kind of disappointing. The hops don't come through like they ought to. Too crackery, and the dryness makes it hard to truly enjoy.

    Moved on to Rogue Imperial Red Ale (guess I'm doing a Rogue flight tonight)....

    Needs to warm up a bit, so I've just been smelling it....banana bread dominates, a little toffee and caramel but mainly malty goodness with a little cereal...

    Taste-malty, a little hoppiness, clove similar to an Adventinus, warming at the end... pretty good, standard flavors. Hides the ABV quite well. Just not worth the $15 for a bomber.

    In a Mason Jar, because it seems like the right thing to do.

    '06 Merry Edwards Sonoma Coast PN for dinner.

    Now a pear martini.

    Next, thinking of trying a Sazerac cocktail, using Louis XIII, Pernod absinthe and agave syrup.

    Edit: Wow, interesting Sazerac.

    Every time I've tried to drink Aprihop the most charitable description I could find is fermented urine. I appreciate anyone who can drink it.

    An old fashioned glass packed with ice, filled to the brim with Plymouth, and the juice of one small lime added. I can't think of a more refreshing drink on a warm North Carolina evening.

    What's wrong with that? Three parts pear Grey Goose, one part simple syrup, garnish with sliced Bosch pears...very refreshing. And I followed it up with 2k brandy in my Sazerac, with real absinthe. That's gotta count for some real cred.

    That's cool. I was thinking you were on some emasculated "martini" trip. All credibility restored.

    Now drinking Lagunitas 2009 correction. Holy heck this smells so good I don't want to drink it. Oregano, orange blossom honey, piney hops, lemon zest, a little limoncello, and fresh cut grass on the aroma. A lot more but its too late in the evening for me to identify much of the aromas. Could find so much more.....

    Taste... a good aqueous, then piney hops flavor. It kind of reminds me of going hiking and that smell when the rain has just let up and the pine needles are slightly wet--yeah that's what it tastes like. Very refreshing. Maybe the tiniest amount of soap or metal at the very end of the sip, can't tell for sure. This is a great IPA, regardless of what the label says.
