    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    Made a nice manhattan with the last of my Willett 4 yr rye. Loved this rye in manhattans but in the high 30's around here, doubt I'll re-buy as I didn't dig it on its own.

    I bought the Willett 4yr rye yesterday in S. jersey for $32 with sipping in mind... Also, picked up some Jeffersons rye for upgraded manhattans. Maybe I'll end up switching purposes for the two. Looking forward to trying em both.

    Interested to hear if your experience is similar to mine with the Willett. Be sure to post your thoughts on it neat and in a manhattan.

    I need a good, female-friendly, cocktail that I can serve for a small get together in the near future. Anyone have any thoughts?


    (added by edit - I know this is the bourbon section, but if there's a non-bourbon cocktail that you would include please throw it on here)

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Winter 2013?

    Putting the Bubble Gum vodka aside for the moment my typical default spirit to entice newbies to the brown side is rum. Tiki drinks which can in some cases be a bit on the sweeter side can make a persuasive option. Mai Tai's and the like.

    One Tiki option is a variation on a classic Sidecar (a traditional sour style cocktail) using rum called the Outrigger. It has the added bonus of being pretty simple.

    2 oz aged rum (ED12 or 15 work nicely. Mount Gay XO is another option. Could also try Zacapa if you really want to go sweet. This is a cocktail where a good aged rum is really called for)
    1 oz Cointreau (I suggest sticking with the original here or a good quality substitute like Marie Brizzard or Combier)
    1/2 oz lemon juice (replacing the lime juice in a Sidecar)

    Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

    If you need it to be sweeter adjust the Cointreau up. For less sweet use less Cointreau or more lemon juice.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
