    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    The Four Roses booth at the Beer Bourbon & Barbeque Festival was pouring a cocktail along with 4RSB, SmBatch, and Yellow Label. No name, but they said it had:
    4Roses
    Grapefruit Juice
    Lemon Juice
    Honey Syrup (1/2 honey & 1/2 water)
    Bitters (Peychauds, though the guy said Angostura is he preferred)

    Anywho, it was delicious. Going in, I thought it would suck. My question, though, and here's where I need the help...anyone ever had such a thing, and would you know what the proportions might be? Dude told me...but, there was a lot of bourbon and beer during the day...

    Sounds really close to a Brown Derby, which to the best of my recollection is 2 oz bourbon, 1 oz. Grapefruit Juice, and 0.5 oz. honey syrup. I made them last year for a July 4th party . . . a very good hot weather drink. No reason the bitters wouldn't work.

    Hope y'all had fun at the BB&B festival. I continued my streak of having to work while it was going on.

    Improvising tonight. 2 oz. EC 12 year, 1 oz. Sweet Vermouth, 0.5 oz Campari, 0.25 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, 0.25 Fernet Branca. Chilled and strained over ice sphere. Not bad if I do say so myself.

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    I was intrigued with the idea of Bourbon and lime juice which led to this:

    1 oz Grand Dad BIB
    1/2 oz triple sec
    2 oz Minute Maid cherry limeade

    The sweetness of the triple sec offsets the tartness of the cherry limeade very nicely.

    Something I came across online called the Fire Cherry Cocktail. 3 oz. EC 12, 0.5 Maraschino Liqueur, 0.25 Port, 0.25 Campari, 2 dashes Bokers bitters. I strained over a big cube.

    Sounds real good. How would you describe the flavor of Luxardo Maraschino? I understand it doesn't taste like cherries, exactly. Been tempted to buy a bottle, but I can't seem to get a sense for what it tastes like.

    It's a little hard to describe, especially since I haven't tasted it much on its own. It is very viscous but not overly sweet. I do get some cherry flavor in it, but it is also has some herbal notes.
