    Genever

    I'm looking for old references for botanical and/or mash recipes for the making and elevage of oude genever. If in Dutch, any interpretation help would be appreciated as well .

    Thanks in advance!

    Sipping a super-simple Old-Fashioned made with Anchor Genevieve (dash Petite Canne Martinique cane syrup, 3 dashes Regan's orange bitters, 3 dashers Fee Bros Old-Fashioned bitters, mixed and poured over ice in a chilled rocks glass, very small slice of lemon). This is a delicious, and uber-classic drink. And after a weekend of cask-strength bourbon, a delightful change.

    I hope those of you who tasted the Genevieve this weekend learned something from it. And, those of you with access to barturtle the rest of the year: he has the rest of the bottle.

    In many ways, the original American "bittered sling" (the ur-cocktail) was similar: a white spirit, perhaps a little aged, some sweetening, bitters. From the ti-ponche to the mojito to the Margarita, the idea still has currency.

    Those who happen upon a bottle of young whiskey (say, regular Ancient Age of today) might try this. You can't go wrong, as Jake didn't with his ponche Hollandais.

    The old English pink gin is almost what Jake is talking about, in fact.

    That was good stuff. For me the grain and herbs blended seamlessly.

    "Bittered sling" is just another word for "cocktail." Base, sugar, water, bitters. Or what we call an "Old-Fashioned" now. Add absinthe, maraschino, and sometimes an orange liqueur, and it's an "Improved" cocktail.

    Sounds interesting. How'd I miss it? (Must have been that third helping of Van Blankle.)
