    If a drink is highly acidic I will sometimes splash an ounce or two of bland beer. As beer is basic it buffers out the acid and makes a smoother drink.

    That's too bad about PX. Not that I would ever go there because Old Town Alexandria is a pain to get to from DC.

    Both The Gibson and The Passenger are good about whipping up a cocktail given a few parameters.

    Once again, a cheap Pinot Grigio (a gift) 50/50 with an Italian carbonated lemonade. Thankfully, the Pinot is almost gone.

    Typically don'r drink or make dinner on weekdays but today was a good day so did both.

    Started out with this riesling, inexpensive and nice, a bit mineraly, a bit vegetal on the nose, very clean fruit going down

    Followed up with this with dinner:

    I've added citric acid, which works pretty well. I'd imagine phosphoric acid would perform similarly.

    Anyone,

    What do you think about this variation of a ???

    4 to 1 Italian carbonated lemonade and Vodka? I like fizz in my drinks.

    Just an idea...

    Cheers,

    Started off with a FRSB, then an OGD 114 manhattan, followed by a Booker's manhattan, then topped it all off with a bit of Uigeadail.

    I've got a huge overstock of Pisco at the bar i'm working at currently. Gonna make a prebatched Pisco Punch... you guys have any creative ideas?

    Also got a couple of bottles of Frangelico laying around, that good for anything?

    I'm on my third glass of the Project Paso Lonely Oak Red. Wine.Woot has their stuff half price every so often (Usually 2 Cab, 2 Zin, 2 blend for $60 or so), which is a great deal. Very good wines.

    PVW 20 last night from a buddy who acquired 6 bottles in a trade. Haven't had in over 5 years, due to redonkulous pricing. Every bit as good as I remember.

    We just wrapped up thirst and the Hendricks cocktail academy. The Blender Bender was awesome. 20 tables of blended drinks from sins of the best bartenders in Boston.

    Pisco is pretty great with Chartreuse and lime, so Last Word and Eulogy variants with it are tasty. As for the Frangelico, others may mock, but I was working on a kind of nutty dry cocktail with it in the vein of a Ford that used gin, vermouth, madeira, and Frangelico. It was very good but I ran out of Madeira before writing down the recipe.

    Last night had a wonderful Fall cocktail: a Calvados Manhattan, if you will, with Dolin rouge and a drop of Allspice dram and orange bitters. So tasty.

    If any DC-area residents want to visit the Columbia Room or The Passenger, you need to do so before the end of the year. Both are closing on January 1 for redevelopment on that block. The Columbia Room is set to reopen in a new location late next year, and The Passenger has not yet found a new spot.
