I had 4 cocktails in 4 hours last night and I ended up passing out around 8:00. My theory: Zyrtec. Ever since I started taking it, the slightest amount of alcohol makes me exhausted. Also, my allergies cause my nose to be stuffed up. This means I cannot really smell my drinks. Therefore, no more quality whiskey until I can actually smell again.
Last night (after I got home from a couple of beers at the bar in our school's new student center), I had a Godfather, but subbed in bourbon, as I don't have any scotch. If I ever do those again, I'm toning down the amaretto.
Right now? Gin and Tonic with the Senica Drums gin I bought not long ago.

Does this variation on a rusty nail have a name or is it something you concocted?

I have really been absent from this thread of late. Tonight's effort is the 2oth Century, a weird take on a Corpse Reviver #2, with a little white creme de cacao in it. I am learning of late the interesting notes that chocolate can bring to a number of cocktails, even one, at Death and Company, with Campari in it.
Anyway, the 20th Century:
1-1/2 oz Gin (I'm using Miller's, but any good London Dry is appropriate)
3/4oz Lillet Blanc
3/4 oz white creme de cacao
1/4 oz Simple syrup (or as needed to correct the lemon)
3/4 oz lemon juice
