    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    I think I'll call it a "Avernade"

    in a pint glass with ice

    Juice of 1 lemon
    Healthy glug to glug and a half of simple syrup-depending on how much juice you got from the lemon.
    1 1/2 oz Averna-or other bitters of choice.
    Top with water to top of glass
    Stir

    It's slightly reminds me of a Arnold Palmer-half lemonade and tea, you get the lemonade sweet tartness, and the Averna helps to contribute a tea like, tannic, bitter quality, I'm a fan of some strong brewed tea in the summer-sweetened of course.

    It would be perfect on a much hotter day than it is now here, but it is doing nicely to remind me of what is around the corner weather wise.

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    I bought some grapefruit bitters and they are making my Manhattans pop! So I've been drinking Manhattans all weekend. Been rotating the bourbon between AA10yo, EWSB, and just had one with Handy. All good!

    PS time for a new thread
