    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Why are y'all not just using Campari? The vermouth and gin can be substituted, but experimenting with aperitivi aside from Campari is more for the longtime fan than someone drinking Negronis for the first few (hundred) times.

    Never tried their Cabernet for some reason, but I pretty much always have a bottle of their Carmenere on hand. Great wine, and I find it pretty reliably for $10 (usually priced around $12) around here.

    I really like reyka. It's such good value

    Drinking this

    [​IMG]

    Valdicava produces a brunello and a single vineyard brunello but in 2011 they felt the quality wasn't up to snuff so they put it all in the rosso. It's really tight and heavy when I first opened the bottle. Letting it decant but I feel like it could be pretty awesome. The fruit is very reserved but it has all these amazing secondary notes like tobacco and leather and earth and something very vegetal maybe floral. Astringent but tannins are pretty soft and not very prominent. Oak is very reserved. Maybe large casks or a mix or something. Feel like it would be amazing with a lot of age on it.

    Btw, that's one of the mixing glasses I bought for $30, free shipping, and 20% off from C&B. I hope someone besides me took advantage of that sale. Very thick and sturdy and each glass comes with a sturdy Hawthorne strainer to boot.

    Coached the bartender on how to make a Last Word using Google in Mexico because I saw Green Chartreuse at the bar.

    This beauty turned 34 this year and was phenomenal. Brilliant, leathery flavor.
