    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.

    I've read multiple times you guys cheering for Mexican Coke. Is it that different from normal coke? Don't think it's available here. [​IMG]

    no man should drink a cocktail with more than 2 ingredients

    No cocktail should have less than 3 ingredients.

    Belvedere Intense, with ice. If it's cold enough, no ice necessary (this is preferable). Pair it with a red bull for those 0-->1000 nights.

    Summer...mojitos all the way. Ideally no syrup involved, but there are times when beggars can't be choosers.

    Two oft ordered beers at the moment: Innis and Gunn (aged in whiskey barrels - lovely with a good meal); Steam Whistle Pilsner...nice taste, not too gassy.

    New favorite: the Monte Carlo. Basically a rye Manhattan with Benedictine instead of vermouth. Amazing.

    Less fake ingredients, real sugar. Haven't had it myself, but I've definitely heard good things.

    yeah it's unrefined cane sugar vs high-fructose corn syrup plus all the chemical crap. Anybody who can get it (it was at my local small town supermarket for $1/bottle) owes it to themselves to try a Mexican Coke+a nice rum - it takes a usually shittily made drink to the next level and it's really noticeable, great stuff.

    Definitely. It actually makes a rum and coke taste like a legit cocktail instead of just a mixed drink. I was skeptical until I actually tried it. You can get it at every supermarket here, and I live in the midwest.

    We seem to have the same taste in cocktails, down to the lemon peel. However you left off my #1 which is the Manhattan (rye, bitters, no fruit).

    Really starting to get back into classic cocktails and mixology as of recent, and even thinking about making my own bitters. What websites or blogs are you all following? Any good videos?


    I made myself a couple of Old Fashioned cocktails last night and was a very happy boy. Unfortunately, the ice from my freezer is pretty sub par, but the cocktail was still enjoyable nonetheless. What kind of ice are you all using at home?


    I'm looking at you Huntsman.
