    I ordered two, so I could get free shipping, and I hope other folks took advantage of this. They are seamless Yarai mixing glasses with very sturdy and tight fitting Hawthornes. If they are still available you really need to order at least one.

    I hate this guy. He has the ability to suck fun out of anything.

    So it's hotter than hell here in PHX, so my drink choices have been a bit skewed. Hangar 1 makes a killer citrus vodka that, along with a little soda and a lime, makes for a great 116° cocktail. Otherwise, its a healthy portion of Elmer T. Lee with an ice cube (maybe two). If you're a bourbon nut, check Elmer out. Never seen it for more than $30 and tastes like Blanton's higher-achieving older brother.

      This is my go to wine when with my significant other. Low alcohol content and a refreshing taste.

    Just finishing a Botanist cocktail, about to have a Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger with a grilled soft shell crab sandwich with aioli and hot sauce.

    Negroni made with Ransom dry gin, Carpano Antica sweet vermouth, and Gran Classico. It's a bit on the sweet side -- I think the combination of Carpano and Gran Classico may be too much.

    ^You definitely have to play around with the ratios. The classic 1:1:1 doesn't work that well when using Gran Classico in Negronis, imo. I'd also pick a lighter sweet vermouth, since the flavour of GC is more delicate than Campari--and I'm not too big a fan of a regular Negroni prepared with Carpano Antica anyway.

    Dolin Rouge would be a great foil for the Classico.

    Last night went on a binge. Last Word, Moscow Mule, Pimm's Cup, Eva Green, Smokey Bandit, Foreboding Weather, etc. Add in some tequila, some Rip Van Winkle 10 and probably a few others as well.

    Last Word

    Oliveto (recipe adapted from Marvel Bar in Minneapolis)

    2 oz. dry gin
    1 oz. fresh lemon juice
    1/4 oz. simple syrup (2:1 sugar:water)
    1/4 oz. Licor 43
    1/2 oz. extra virgin olive oil
    1 egg white
    [​IMG]

    Next time I will double the simple syrup to balance things out a little. Was still delicious.

    I like the idea of adding a little olive oil with gin-based cocktails... will have to try that.
    Also must incorporate egg whites into more cocktails.

    I made a martini last night:

    2.5 oz Tanq
    .5 oz Kina Lillet

    I didn't have any vermouth so used Lillet instead. It was very nice and smooth but next time I either have to decrease the amount of Lillet, or maybe bump the gin up to 3oz for better balance.
    (I'm not a huge fan of Tanq in martinis but I thought I'd give it another try. It was probably okay in this one because the ratio of gin:Lillet seemed to slightly skew the flavour of the Tanq. Next time round, will try with a higher quality gin.)
    Stirred, garnished with a lemon twist.

    Do 2:1 with Lillet, add a drop of Maraschino and a lemon twist. It's pretty lovely. And I presume you mean regular Lillet Blanc, since the Kina has not been made for years? Unless you mean Cocchi?

    I am always very glad to hear that. I think I shall make one myself today (I have Hendricks back on hand!)

    Don't know any serious cocktail geeks in Toronto, do you? Trying to get into Toronto Temperance in early August....
