    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Kentucky Mule: Fentiman's Ginger Beer, RittBIB and fresh squeezed lime juice. My ratio was 4/2/.5 but no rules here. Add a dash or two of orange bitters if you are feeling adventurous. Mighty tasty on a hot summer day.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Something warming and bright has miraculously appeared in the sky, surrounded by a cheery blueness. The opening is small, and probably wont' last long, but I'm happily celebrating the occasion with a Pimm's, ginger ale, and lemon slice in an ice jammed tumbler.

    This comes to mind after the long wet darkness of the last several days:

    I've heard about the cuke thing too, B. But, we don't have any now, (Unless, you count my bottle of Willett 4yr 110 proof LDI Rye ) in the house. But, the back label of the Pimm's gave a recipe with the lemon, (which I do have) so I went with that. Cukes are on the shoppin' list, though!

    My favorite Pimm's Cup recipe ... from the Napoleon House in New Orleans ...

    Fill a tall 12 oz glass with ice and add 1 1/4 oz. Pimm's #1 and 3 oz lemonade.
    Then top off with 7up.
    Garnish with cucumber.

    I use a cuke spear, rather than a slice ...
    Sto lat!!!

    I had a Bourbon Bacon Vanilla Milkshake at some new burger bar while visiting my folks in Toledo, OH. Pretty darn tasty.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Tried a Mackinnon cocktail last night as I look for an interesting but light and fizzy summer drink.

    Mackinnon Cocktail

    2 oz Drambuie
    1⁄2 oz Light rum (I used Flor de Cana 4yo white)
    1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
    1⁄2 oz Lime juice
    3 oz Club soda or seltzer water
    1 slice Lime as garnish
    Optional: 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters

    Build in a highball glass, top with club soda, stir gently, garnish

    I liked the addition of the Peychaud's and it is a good way to get through a bottle of Drambuie that has been sitting around for awhile. It is not quite as good as "My Favorite Mechanic is a Woman" but then what is...
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Good one, I think we still have some Drambuie that's been hanging around here for ever so long.
