    Old Cuban. Audrey Saunders' take on a Mojito. Instead of light rum and soda water, the Old Cuban uses rhum agricole and sparkling white wine. Mojitos are a decent way to introduce people to mixed drinks, but I think they're flat and lack cohesion. The Old Cuban has more than just 'ahh' crispness.

    First you need a pontoon boat, a cooler, some ice, some red solo cups, and some good friends. Then you take a large bottle of Simply Lemonade. Pour out about a third of it into another container. Then replace the empty space with Jack or a bourbon of choice. Cruise, have a few, tell a few stories, and laugh a lot.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Manhattan is our family drink of choice.

    2 parts Willett Estate Rye
    1 part Antico Carpano Vermouth
    3 dashes angostura bitters
    1 Luxardo Cherry

    Its a fantastic Manhattan, the Willett Rye version has quickly become our favorite variation, Its a nice complex rye and adds a lot to the drink.

    Made a pre dinner Merry Widow from the Savoy. Used Sam Ross's proportions. This bottle of Beefeater is going quickly. This picture is of the cocktail half gone before I had the motivation to snap a pic.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Bulleit rye, NP sweet vermouth, Carpano Antico, Regan orange bitters, Luxardo cherries

    hmmm......now that I think about it, I meant to use Averna Amaro instead of the NP.
    still tasted good.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    A couple of cocktails as part of an Agave Spirits class at Holeman & Finch yesterday.

    Kilted Pistolero - Very refreshing. A nice summer cocktail.
    1.5 oz blanco tequila
    3/4 oz Drambuie
    3/4 oz lemon juice
    2 dashes Angostura
    Grated nutmeg garnish
    Shake with ice and serve up. Float grated nutmeg.


    In Bloom - A riff of sorts on the Negroni, it was much more dry, smokey with a moderate bitter finish.
    1.5 oz Del Maguey Vida
    3/4 oz Carpano Antica
    1/2 oz St. Germaine
    1/2 oz Compari
    Stir with ice and strain into coupe washed with Rosewater.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Nullum Gratuitum Prandium
    Ne Illegitimi Carborundum

    What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Black Diamond Flip.

    1 1/2 oz. Islay (Ardbeg 10)
    1 1/2 oz. Cynar
    1 whole egg
    Grated nutmeg

    I kept thinking it would be nice to do a 50:50 Cynar:Ramazzotti split, but then realized I had forgotten the nutmeg garnish. Definitely added the baking spice notes I was looking for, but I'm still interested in trying out that variation to cut the Cynar a little. Also, I assumed it was just an egg white and only noticed my err after I finished the drink.

    Even with all of my blunders, it made for a great drink. It reminded me of a bittered and alcoholic version of a rum fudge I once received as a gift. I'd wholeheartedly recommend trying this drink at least once.

    It's rare that I mix drinks, but this afternoon I had a Ritt BIB and Maine Root Ginger Brew. Delicious drink, enjoyed the ginger ale - really spicy.
