    Re: GOOD whiskey for cocktails?

    Angostura Orange is good. Having a variety of orange or other bitters around is fun, but for casual cocktail drinkers you probably only need one of each of whatever types you use frequently.

    You should also know, Jonny, that tanstaafl2 is a serious cocktail guy who actually makes his own bitters too. I've had them and they are very tasty. If anyone knows bitters, it's him!

    While I would love to take credit for the homemade bitters, if you are refering to the bitters at the sampler last year I can't take credit for those. But they were excellent!

    I find I am better at drinking them than making them. I do however admit to being something of a cocktail enthusiast!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Yes, that's what I was thinking of. Thanks for bringing them! They were delicious.

    Re: GOOD whiskey for cocktails?

    I have seen a Wal-Mart in Bowling Green, Ky with a liquor store attached with it's own entrance. However the one here in Henderson has just beer and malt bevs. The Angostura products are on the same isle by the club soda and other mixers. Liquor laws sure are funny from state to state.

    Re: GOOD whiskey for cocktails?

    That is me Josh, a casual cocktail drinker. I like cocktails, but I just haven't put forth the effort to make them at home as of yet. It's usually whiskey neat or one cube for me. But hey how hard is it to spice things up with some bitters, etc.

    Not hard at all and well worth the effort.
