    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Fall/Winter 2013

    Made some Old Fashioneds for my beautiful wife and I. Rocks, a little simple syrup, several dashes Fees Orange bitters and Angostura bitters, a cherry, a healthy pour of Bulleit bourbon, and a splash of water for the wife's. They go down a little too easy

    I've become rather fond of the Woodford maple Manhattan at the local Saltgrass steakhouse.

    Old Fashioned Rough cute cane sugar cube soaked with Angostura bitters, muddled a small orange slice. Swapped off between SB 60/40 Weller blend and WT 101 rye both were tastey.

    Was in the mood for something tangy and sweet last night, so I whipped up a Eulogy, the cousin of the Last Word. I haven't found much use for this bottle of Batavia Arrack otherwise.

    Been making the Kirkwood quite a bit lately. It is a variation on the Red Hook created by a great local bartender and named after an Atlanta neighborhood. Really good.

    - 1.5 oz. Rittenhouse Rye (or other high proof rye)- .5 oz. Punt e Mes
    - .5 oz. Cynar
    - .5 oz St. Germain
    - 2 dashes grapefruit bitters

    Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir 30 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with grapefruit peel.

    Out on the town last night at tthe Pinewood where it was half price whiskey night. Featured where the good old FRYL and Riverboat Rye, a young green MGPI rye.

    For half price who could resist!

    So I started with a Quadrophenia (somebody clearly likes to use musical and literary references for their drink names...) and then it devolved into getting the bartender to create something just for me using 2 different base spirits. That led to an interesting concoction of the Riverboat Rye, The Scarlet Ibis rum, Averna, CioCiara, Bittermans Tiki bitters and a float of Smith & Cross rum. Surprisingly good and except for the bitters, which i can find, something I can make at home. Added on top of the Irish whiskey tasting earlier in the day and after that things got a bit hazy...

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    That can easily be remedied if you feel at all adventurous! For example:

    Arrack Attack
    1.5 oz Batavia arrack
    0.5 Cynar
    0.5 Canton ginger liqueur
    0.5 lime juice
    1 dash Fee Bros. Whiskey barrel aged bitters
    Pinch of salt
    Shake, strain into a low ball with rocks
    Garnish with slice of lime

    Or if you are feeling REALLY adventurous...

    Airbag
    1 oz reposado tequila (Espolon perhaps or if you are feeling adventurous the original called for El Tesoro)
    0.5 Batavia arrak
    0.5 Mezcal (Sombra or Vida. Need something that can hold its own!)
    0.75 Carpano Antica
    0.25 All spice dram (not too much because this liqueur can hold its own with most anything!)
    0.25 Benedicine
    1 dash chocolate bitters
    Stir and serve up

    So named because it would seem there is no way in hell you could survive this car wreck collection of ingredients and yet somehow you do!
