    I think I've done a brandy old fashioned a couple times but I actually prefer a Vieux Carre

    I grew up in Wisconsin, where the Brandy Old Fashioned is practically the official state cocktail. I've never spoken to anyone outside of Wisconsin who had ever even heard of it. Whenever I want one now, I just make it myself.

    I just googled Vieux Carre--it looks a lot more complex than the Old Fashioned!

    And your impressions are?

    I'm having some Glenfarclas 1974 Family Cask to cap off a great day.

    It's really not that difficult to make and it is a delicious drink. If you like brandy old fashioneds I bet you'd like the Vieux Carre

    Thanks for the tip. I'm really a newcomer to the world of mixed drinks (other than the one or two kinds that I grew up with) and I'm interested to learn.

    Apparently, it is a Richmond gimlet. I'd never heard of such a thing. The family just had mint left over from mojitos the other night. My recipe was 2 oz. Bombay, 1 oz simple syrup, 1 oz fresh lime juice, long mint sprig, shaken.

    It was apparently created in Oregon less than 10 years ago so if your knowledge is based on classic cocktails it isn't suprising that you wouldn't have heard of it. I remember reading about it on Richard Morgenthaler's now-mostly-defunct-blog.

    Glendfiddich 30 yo.

    A sublime single malt. Drunk neat of course.

    I'm now back into having a couple of drinks every night... until this runs out.
