    Sounds like it should be called a Georgia Sunrise, a take off on that 70's college classic, the Tequila Sunrise. They bring back mixed memories for me as the Tequila Sunrise was usually made with the cheapest and worst possible mixto tequila you could find on a college budget.

    Of course the guys would usually be drinking beer and feeding the Tequila Sunrises to the coeds in hopes of seeing the sunrise with them...

    Actually I developed that one for a coed and called it a Sunset, she was a peach.

    A simple sour before dinner.

    The remnants of VRO HH, juice of 1 lemon, and a glub of simple syrup.

    A quick shake with ice, and pour into glass of choice.

    Perfect pre dinner drink.

    Will probably work up something using Kracken spiced rum as a base.

    What are you using for the apricot brandy? I usually use Marie Brizzard Apry since true apricot brandy like Barack Palinka tends to be hard to come by and is generally not as sweet as what is typically in the usual apricot mixers. But the MB is pretty decent.

    I've come into a cache of nice lemons, so I've been focusing on using those up. One of my favorites is the 20th Century, using gin, Tempus Fugit Kina Avion D'or, lemon juice, and Creme de Cacao. Somehow the chocolate and lemon flavors interplay very nicely while distinguishing themselves. The Kina makes the lemon "pop" nicely.

    There is also a variation on the classic Last Word cocktail that I've heard called "The Final Ward." This uses rye instead of gin, lemon juice instead of lime, and the same Chartreuse and maraschino. All equal proportions.

    I whipped up some homemade orgeat syrup last week using a recipe I found online. I've been making a nice Army Navy cocktail with this. Gin, lemon, orgeat, and some aromatic bitters, usually Angostura. I wouldn't bother making this with off the shelf orgeat, as it lacks the depth of flavor and texture of the homemade stuff.

    Finally, I like the way they make an Aviation at one of my local bars, but I keep tweaking it and can't get it to taste as delicious.

    All of these have really perfected my cutting of nicely curled lemon twists. I'm like a lemon surgeon now!

    I can tell you with 100% certainty, since I work in Bawlmore, that less than 0.1% of the city residents have heard of apricot brandy. It's not a criticism - I can't choke down the stuff myself - but putting the name "Baltimore" in a drink invites speculation as to how representative it is.
