    My pleasure! I hope you like them but know that they are more "new school" style cocktails that emphasize a drier, somewhat bitter and sometimes smokey style of cocktails.

    Tangy they are, sweet generally not quite so much!

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Fall/Winter 2013

    Been spending a lot of time on these pages lately. Decided I was going to cure my "too many open bottles" by making some cocktails. So, first up tonight after reading many recipes on here was a Manhattan.

    3 to 1 Sazerac Rye to Sweet Vermouth (Carpano Antica)
    Few Dashes of Angostura bitters
    Few Dashes of Regans Orange bitters
    one cherry
    2 orange slices and a several ice cubes.

    A very tasty mix! Looking forward to some experimenting. Up next, Old Fashioned.

    A great dinner with Mrssmokinjoe at Muss & Turner's. (the flounder was fabulous, by the way) Had a couple of their delicious "Chester Copperpots"...Woodford, Punt e Mes, Luxardo Marachino, and orange. Nice rocks glass and golf ball size, round, ice ball. Loved Them. Then headed back to the cool speakeasy-type bar for an ECBP neat, as a night cap. Mrssmokinjoe drove home....

    Sounds like a Red Hook made with bourbon rather than rye. Bet that was good. Love Muss & Turners.

    Mixed up a decent Old Fashioned while watching the Mich St and WI NCAA game. Used Four Roses Small Batch which has enough spice to make a decent cocktail. Thumbs up!

    Blend together and pour over ice.

    My go to Sunday morning cocktail of late has been a bloody mary. I used to enjoy them quite frequently (and made with vodka), just got away from having them. While vacationing over the holidays, I was introduced to a bourbon bloody, yummy delicious.

    2oz AAA
    V8 juice
    splash of Worcestershire
    splash of hot sauce
    half a spoon of fresh horseradish
    a good shake of Beau Monde

    Garnish with a strip of bacon
    The liver is evil. It must be punished...

    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!
    I picked up some Allspice Dram just to try this one, and aside from the silly amount of time it took to prepare, it's good, like a smoky and spicy Manhattan. You forgot to mention the garnish though, which I read from the Cocktail Virgin Slut article: a cherry soaked in cask strength Laphroaig, set aflame!
