    Re: What Cocktail Are Enjoying Spring '13?

    a "Old Manhatten".

    2oz WTRB
    1oz Sweet vermouth
    1oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
    bitters
    drizzle of Luxardo sweet vermouth, with a couple of cherries on the top.

    Over crushed ice.

    Needle something sweeter today grilling. The higher proof RB stood up well, and the addition of the orange note played well with the rest, like the muddled orange of the old fashioned. A good slow sipper.

    Tried a 2:1 Buffalo Trace / Cardamaro stir down with a few dashes of Bitter Truth Aromatic. Easy sipping, rich, and let's the Cardamaro flavors shine.

    Tried this recipe:

    I might cut back on the lemon juice a tad next time, but this makes an excellent aperitif. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and not too sour. I think I'd like to play around with the shrub format a little more...

    That's a lot of Cocchi. I'll have to give that a try.

    just saw this on Girl and the Goat Facebook page. They call it a Chicago Derby. They soak mint leaves in the bourbon for 11 hours. Looks like they've chosen a good bourbon, too.
    Hope to have one soon.
