    I love Suze best in the White Negroni, but not the original recipe. I do 1.75 oz gin, 3/4oz Suze, 3/4 oz Dolin Blanc vermouth, and 1/4 oz Luxardo. The use of Luxardo in the White Negroni was something I first saw at Cocktail Bar in Toronto, and I think it is what takes the concept of the White Negroni and makes it great -- the funkiness is a liason for Suze's incredible dandelion qualities.

    Well, I am very glad that you and your friend enjoyed it. I was in NYC yesterday for work, and though in and out on the same day, I took a few minutes to run over to Eataly and get three bottles of my favorite orgeat, so there are some Art Decos in my future indeed!

    Where? Is it a Heugel place? His Eulogy is one of the best cocktails in existence.

    The drink looks great but that glass is fabulous! It looks really old, and I love the cut-glass rim.

    Hey, I just saw Suze in the store for the first time yesterday and didn't know what it was. Might have to grab some.


    denning always has the best glassware and takes good pictures to boot.

    Huntsman, any opinion on Aveze vs Suze? I've got a bottle of Aveze somewhere around here, just need to dig it out.

    I always make my simple margaritas with equal parts quality blanca tequila, Cointreau and lime juice shaken with ice and never salt on the rim. Great tequila has a natural salty after taste.I always try and find great limes. I look for thin skins and a deep green color for the best flavor.

    Like the glass! Presentation is everything.

    No, a wine and whiskey bar called Public Services. The guy who owns it is a badass who became an advanced somm at like age 23, and he always brings in really cool wines and spirits. Definitely not a cocktail bar though, they don't even have any sort of fruit juice. I like Bobby Heugel's bars, but I go very infrequently because they have some of the worst customers I've encountered in the entire world.

    I've heard that they are pretty much indistinguishable, but have not tried Aveze. Really, one can only drink so much dandelion and sunshine at any given time!

    I tried to order the Eulogy last night at Anvil, the guy had heard of it, but sadly didn't have the ingredients. I did try something off their new menu which is looking promising.

    Huntsman, your rum blend looks a lot like my rum blend. A fine blended base she makes.

    Nice rye, too.

    Made a few Last Words.

    .75 oz Chartreuse (the green kind, none of that weakbody yellow stuff)
    .75 oz Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
    .75 oz Boodles gin
    .75 lime juice

    Shaken with ice, served straight. Pretty delicious.

    It's a classic (or at least a resurrected one.) Lots of great variations on the equal parts formula of the Last Word out there too.
    Yellow Chartreuse is a fine sweetener-modifier; I use it like orange liqueur in contexts where I want herbal instead of citrus. Green is just Chartreuse and functions a bit like a base spirit and a bit like absinthe. It's great on the rocks, too.

    Not the best of the C-d-P from the region, but considering I got 6 bottles for less than the price of one, I was not too disappointed.

    The Pope's New House makes some great wine. Vieux-Telegraphe is my favorite.

    It is a lovely spirit. Though I will say that the Handy compared very well indeed, and is far easier to find.

    That is not cool. I am very sorry to hear that! It is fussy on the ingredients side, but Strega, Arrack, and Falernum should be in Anvil's stable. I am actually disheartened.

    We have some very similar spirits proclivities, indeed! Vieux-Telegraphe is not only my favorite CdP, but my favorite red. Not too long ago, I had a dinner with two bottles of '96. It was lovely.

    Ain't it the truth. Made your version of the White Negroni using Aveze instead of Suze. My wife thought it was a bit too boozy for her mood, so I got to drink both of them!

    Agreed. I had forgotten I drank a bottle of that a few months back.

    Indeed. I'd actually say it's my favorite wine, full stop. I got my first bottle in Toulouse a long time ago, and thought it'd cost the same when I came home and I'd drink it all the time. You can imagine how that turned out...
