    Re: What cocktail are you enjoying Spring/Summer 2012?

    After much bourbon and rye last evening at the GBS meeting, today I changed things up with a nice cold Negroni made with Carpano Antica vermouth (excellent in a Manhattan, also).

    Summer are plenty of Gin and Tonics, Fizzes, Mojitos since the mint I am growing is hitting gang busters, then the bourbon is getting used up in Old Fashioneds. Never tire of an old fashioned.

    Tried some French 75 coctails last night with the No 3 Gin. Turned out to be excellent pre-dinner drinks.

    Re: What cocktail are you enjoying Spring/Summer 2012?

    Went to a restaurant and had what they call a Crimson Creole. It was goo but a little sweet. So I went back home and tinkered with their recipe and came away with a real winner.

    Restaurants Version:
    Makers Mark
    Orange Juice
    Ginger Ale
    Creole Bitters.

    My Version:
    Fill rocks glass 2/3 with ice
    OWA 107 about (50% filled about 3oz)
    Grand Marinier (Add a little less than 1oz)
    4-5 Drops of Creole Bitters
    Club Soda (Fill remainder of rocks glass) and stir gently.

    My version is clean and light with a really nice flavor to it. Definitely happy with the end result has been my go to summer drink now for the last 2 weeks, I can't get enough. I defintely recommend giving it a try. If you do let me know what you think it
