    Lately, I'm fond of the Aviation. Just right during the local excuse for Summer.

    A Chardonnay from the Flowers winery in coastal Sonoma. I'm a fan of decanting big white wines.

    I call this drink the "no rye or vermouth - Manhattan."

    2oz Eagle Rare bourbon
    1oz Lillet Rouge
    0.5oz Cherry Heering
    2 dash Angostura bitters
    Garnish with a cherry.

    The cocktail is actually decent. Of course the delicate flavors of the lillet have completely disappeared, but the final result is sort of like going to a Thai restaurant in Guatemala. You taste hints of familiar flavors here and there. But, overall, you are consuming something very different than what you ordered.

    For the record, although I never run out of rye, I did run out of my Vya sweet. So I decided to get creative. Oh well, the process was fun.

    ^ Doesn't sound bad. I do something very similar, but with Dubonnet Rouge and Scotch (keeping the Heering).

    Sazerac.

    What do you use as a base? Rye, I am assuming? What brand? I've always found the Saz 6 to be exceptional, but I'm curious.

    Sazerac 6! I've used Sazerac 18, too, but I cringe. I've also split the base with any random VSOP, too, but nine times out of ten it is Sazerac 6.
