Nullum Gratuitum Prandium
Ne Illegitimi Carborundum
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
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....

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!
3oz BIB bourbon
1oz pineapple juice
1oz orange juice.
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.
