    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.
    Well I've already commited to open my first bottle of HWCampfire tonght I think I'll try this first with some 4RYL.

    I think FRYL would be a great one to use ... the Compari and bitters have a huge influence on the nose, but the Zin was a nice surprise in how it balanced out that bitterness. I hate to say it, but it is at least as good as the vermouth...

    Not really a cocktail but more of a potent herbal tea recipe i modified for my cough by adding hooch, which I consider the best medicine on the market, anyway as most of you guys a heading into winter I thought I would share this recipe, its a strong mix and really knocks any stubborn coughs about, and doesnt taste too bad either!

    Steep a bunch of fresh thyme in a cup of boiling water for 5 mins, then add:
    1tbsp of Manuka Honey
    1 tsp of turmeric
    1 tsp of cayenne pepper
    1 tsp of grated ginger
    1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
    1 oz of brandy
    Strain into mug

    Sipping on a Lion's Tail, made with the dregs of a bottle of BMH, juice of 1/2 a lemon, and a little All-Spice Dram, stirred in a tumbler with a big cube and finished with a dash of Angostura. Autumnal and appropriate.

    Made a new cocktail last night with the following:
    3 oz OGD 114
    2-3 oz fresh apple cider
    .5 oz maple syrup.
    Few dashes of angostura

    Shaken with ice and poured over a cube with a lemon peel and small sprinkle of cinnamon. Very tasty

    Sounds great. I bet it might also be good as a hot drink.

    I'll probably go to H.E. Double HockeySticks for this, but I did enjoy an Angry Orchard Crisp Apple mixed with Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, yesterday at Thanksgiving Festivities... I hope my admission here, acts as some sort of Confession, and my sin will be forgiven....

    As sinful as it is to drink Fireball, I think it's a sin that you're immediately absolved from. That stuff is too irresistible to hold it against the drinker.

    I guess we're all going to burn then,because my niece insisted I try one of these last night and I hate to admit that it was pretty damned tasty!

    Manhattan with ETL, Carpano Antica, Angostura and chocolate chili bitters. The chocolate chili bitters give it a great holiday flavor.
