    Groundbreaking Cocktail Recipes

    Courtesy of an email from Old Forester, here are two cocktails for "the big game" that will BLOW YER MIND.



    Old Forester Kentucky
    Sour

    1 oz. Old Forester
    3 oz. sweet and sour mix
    Ice



    Old Forester and
    Cola

    1 oz. Old Forester
    3 oz. cola
    Ice


    With recipes this complicated, they really should have given instructions but I think they work best if served in a glass.

    They remind me a bit of these recipes from the Food Network: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/r...ipe/index.html

    Re: Groundbreaking Cocktail Recipes

    I couldn't help but respond sarcastically back to them.

    I don't know if its "no-reply", but it went through.

    I really do hope someone at OF has these in a safe place in case the current holder passes.

    Hate to lose these.

    Ah, but Josh, the key is that they're made with Old Forester. That's what makes them special.

    Have no fear! Will to the rescue! As a working chemist I think I can handle those complicated formulas.

    I'll have to give it a try someday.

    Should I add the OF to the Coke. Or is it the other way around?

    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Now as a chemist myself, I know you are going to have problems converting to metric measurements. I'd go to the CRC for help with these.

    I still have a couple of CRC myself. They are in full retirement given that most everything they contain is almost instantly available on the internet.
