    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    Man, I underestimated the impact of using a premium whiskey in a cocktail -- always seemed like a waste. Used Handy instead of my customary Rittenhouse for my manhattan tonight (Antica, peychauds). What a difference! Probably won't make it a regular habit, but the quality certainly wasn't lost in the wash.

    While not always true, I generally find that a better whiskey makes a better cocktail.

    A rough approximation of a Vieux Carre. 1 oz. Rittenhouse, 1 oz. Armagnac (didn't have cognac), 1 oz Vermouth (cocchi), 0.5 oz Calvados (didn't have benedictine, so I just grabbed something), 1 dash Peychauds, 1 dash Angostura. Drinking it up rather than on rocks. Not too bad.

    Sounds good, David. I enjoy Vieux Carre's. I don't have Benedictine, either. But, I use B&B. I'm going to make me one now!

    Cheers, Joe. Maybe I'll call my version the Overworked Lawyer.

    Just add 2 parts sand and 1 part cement and you can re-pave your driveway.

    Will probably make up a Manhattan with lunch, I've got a fresh bottle of vermouth that needs to be opened.
