    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.

    For a handle I'll drop in two entire vanilla pods. I take a knife and slit the length of it to facilitate infusion. Oranges, wash them well as you don't want any off flavours, then the rind of 4-6 depending on their size. Try not to get pith too. Let it sit for a month and swirl the bottle daily. Make sure the rinds and vanilla stay submerged as you don't want anything growing on them from the air.

    Ran out of Cocchi Torino last night, so I decided to try Punt e Mes. Tasted pretty good with soda water. Next, tried it in my standard Manhattan made with Rittenhouse Rye. Not as good as Torino -- insufficiently sweet for the job. Will try it in a Negroni next.

    A can of worms.

    Nah, not really. But I bought some Martini Dry and Monkey 47. Lost an arm and a leg in the process.

    It's that time of year; I need to make a round of the Good Will shops and look for some vintage cocktail glasses. The bartender at my foie gras poutine place just scored 10 really nice matching vintage cordial glasses. I'm jealous. :embar:

    It's a really nice version with duck demi, shredded confit, and duck skin cracklings with really good house made fries. Hard to beat.

    I just look for things that appeal to me. Don't expect sets, I mean I'll pick up just a single glass sometimes. It's also cool to see just how huge our glasses are these days and how small a classic glass is. Here's a random pic I just found of the very first one I picked up:

    Drinking this, which Pio recommended a while back. Really good. Not aggressively spicy, but with a real nice vegetal, almost piney finish.

    Royal connection.

    Gin, violet liqueur, egg white, sours and lavender tincture splashed on the top (can be replaced by ang bitters).

    I gave up booze for September so have had nothing to contribute recently, however, I just finished celebrating my brother's first child with some VEP Chartreuse, and then a tasting of El Dorado 15 vs. El Dorado 15 aged in sauternes casks.
