    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Fall/Winter 2013

    I've got too many open bottles of vermouth, and I found a great deal on 1L bottles of Campari and Cynar nearby, so lots of Negronis and Boulevardiers the last couple weeks. The downside: I think Cynar makes my pee smell wierd...

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Fall/Winter 2013

    Created this cocktail tonight as an aperetif prior to some pad thai i cooked for dinner, have to say that it was pretty damn good! The nose was incredibly complex and fruity, i couldnt believe it was 100proof.

    I didnt measure while mixing but the approximate measures were: (2person serve)
    2.5oz wt rye101
    2oz chartreuse green
    1oz dubonet
    1tsp simple sugar syrup
    0.5 tsp agnostura orange bitters

    Shaken hard with ice and served in a glencairn, should look like quava juice!

    I've been making this one for the wife lately...

    2 oz bourbon (i've been using VOB BIB)
    0.5 oz orange liqueur
    0.5 oz fresh lemon juice
    2 oz apple cider
    dash of orange and angostura bitters

    shake in cocktail shaker and serve in martini glass. I like to garnish with a flaming orange peel for the dramatic effect.

    Making this today for the football game later, sounds tasty.

    Four Roses Cider

    1 parts Apple Cider
    1 part Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
    5-7 Cinnamon Sticks

    Put all ingredients in a crock pot on low for 2.5 hours before guest arrive, this will make your home smell wonderful! Serve in a mug with a cinnamon stick! Enjoy!

    On a recommendation from a fellow SBer had my first bloody mary with JB Wiser rye. Never had one before except with gin or vodka and although I was hesitant I must say it's excellent.

    I never thought of making a bloody mary with whiskey. Actually, I've never made a bloody mary, but now I might have to try it (a whiskey mary? or use scotch and make a Mary Queen of Scots).

    Broke out of 4 days of tee totaling with a Harvest Moon made with WT rye 101. Inspired by a post on reddit

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Fall/Winter 2013

    Towards the end of a couple of bottles, so thought I would try to make a cocktail to kill the last few inches. I like Manhattans and Boulevardiers, but then realized the only vermouth I had was an unopened Carpano Antica which I'm saving for Thanksgiving. So threw together the following:

    2 oz. Col. Lee NAS
    1/2 oz. Compari
    1/2 oz. Seghesio Sonoma County Zinfandel 2011
    3 dashes Fee Bros. orange bitters

    - stir w/ ice and strain; lemon twist

    The Zin was opened on the counter from last night's dinner, so threw it in as a substitute for the vermouth. Not half bad! The Zin is very young, big bold and brambly. Nice and jammy; big fruit. While it doesn't have some of the herbaceous character of vermouth, it's a nice counterpoint to the bitterness of the Compari and bitters.
