    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    No name yet, but I am out of Cocchi Americano, so I am enjoying this version of a 20th century.

    1 oz each Old Tom gin, Genepi (I'm using Guillaumette), creme de cacao, and lemon. I might try 1.5 oz of gin next time, as the other flavors are a tad overwhelming.

    Black Diamond Flip.

    1-1/2 oz. Islay (Ardbeg 10)
    1-1/2 oz. Cynar
    1 whole egg
    Nutmeg garnish

    Dry shake, shake with ice, strain. Normally, that is.

    I just got an iSi whipper and nothing calls out to be whipped like a good flip. Not only does this create an awesome head (in fact, it only creates a head) but you don't have to dry shake for minutes. Good drink, and the texture of a fully foamed flip is unbeatable.

    Finishing the evening with an old fashioned made with orange bitters and a forgiveable 50/50 blend of WT101 8yr and WT rye 101

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Finished up my pre-made Boulevardier-in-a-bottle and decided to have another go at its less-delicious (to me) cousin. Used Big gin for this Negroni and it wasn't as bad as I recalled. Good, actually. I think I'd still choose the Boulevardier, but I'll chalk up my previous dislike of this drink to crappy gins. Anyway, funnelled all the ingredients into the bottle to taste and added some Xocolatl mole bitters at the end because what the hell.

    And yes, the Black Diamond Flip is good. Suffice to say, told you so*.

    *I didn't, actually, but I certainly thought it. And I lifted the drink from Fred Yarm's site. If any self-respecting bartender in Boston is serving Yarm a drink, it better be pretty damn good.

    Good picture and setup, Trey. I really need some coupes. Someone got me a gift recently and my choice was an iSi whipper or coupe glasses. As much as I enjoy aesthetic drinks, science is so much more fun.

    Re: What Cocktail are you Enjoying Summer '13?

    Yes, thank you for the recipe. As much as I enjoyed it, being a fan of bitter and peated, I don't think I'd serve it to someone that wasn't a fan of at least one of those flavors.

    Get yourself some coupes! The cocktail kingdom ones are relatively cheap and are sturdy enough for bar use. I also use them at home when I don't trust my guests with the fancy antique crystal stuff.

    Science is fun? "What?" I guess I tend to shy away from many of the cutting edge techniques and gadgets that have come out over the last few years. I still enjoy the drinks and love learning about the processes. However, I find I most often need to make drinks in situations that don't allow much in terms of preparation or tools. Also, I spend so much time focused on technology during my day job, I find it very rewarding to shift that focus at night to making things that are more about aesthetics and being hand-crafted. I love the look on someone's face when I make something beautiful right in front of them and get the "mmmm" nod after they take the first sip.
