    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    Moved on to a Cameron's Kick. 1 oz Blended Scotch (i'm using Great King Street NY Blend); 1 oz Irish Whiskey (I'm using Redbreast 12); 0.5 oz Orgeat; 0.5 oz Lemon Juice. Sounds crazy but it works. Fantastic cocktail.

    Please tell me you're using homemade orgeat with those well-to-do whisk(e)ys. Also, a Cameron's Kick is a beautifully strange concoction.

    As for me, tonight was my first attempt at a Clover Club (more for playing around with my new shaker tins and egg white cocktails in general than out of interest in the Clover Club). Quite good, although I did the (homemade) grenadine version instead of the original raspberry syrup one.

    Didn't make my own orgeat, though I have a good quality store bought version (B.G. Reynolds). I'll have to make my own next time.

    You guys are really into this . . . I just had a Manhattan with lunch made with Barton Cinzano and Fee Bros bitters.

    Just had a manhattan made with Seagrams 7 and I am now very sure that Seagrams 7 is the worst whiskey I've ever tasted. Got the bottle as a gift and thought it'd be good enough to mix but it's really putrid.

    One part Barton, 1/2 each of triple sec and lemon juice, two parts ginger ale, don't follow the different names given cocktails, just mix what tastes good.

    Manhattan made with 2 oz larceny, 1 oz cocchi vermouth, .5 oz calvados, bokers bitters, and a luxardo cherry. I liked the calvados in it.

    Larceny makes a great Manhattan. haven't added calvados before in a long time, thanks for the reminder to revisit.
    Last night had a Diamondback cocktail made from Smooth Ambler Rye.

    Last evening, I made up a cocktail and it turned out to be very good. A jigger of Appleton Jamaican rum, a few dashes of Angosture bitters, and a splash of triple sec.
