    What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    I'm not typically much of a cocktail drinker unless Bruce is making them but I'm waiting for my wife for our anniversary dinner at Local Three and their barrel aged "Flaming Lips" is decadent! FRYL, Hibiscus, King's Ginger, Peychauds, celery bitters, and a cardamom clove cinnamon tincture.

    Just tried a variation on a Horse's Neck:

    1.5 oz Old Forester Signature 100 proof
    4 dashes angostura bitters

    Pour in highball glass with ice.

    Top with ginger ale - I used Canada Dry.

    Stir and enjoy!

    Beautiful day in NYC and working on some variations on the Stone Fence. Had some nice Virginia hard cider to play with. Very dry. Started by adding Stagg Jr and Byrrh Rare Assemblage. Next round, cracked a bottle of the Angel's Envy rye and added that to the cider. The AE is actually less sweet than I remembered but that gingerbread flavor really rings out. For me, this is a good use for this bottle but I'm the kind of apostate who'll add fine whiskey to anything. Well maybe not Red Bull but there's a first time for everything.

    A lazy, cool, and rainy day here, so figured I'd lounge around with my Bloody Mary made with Dixie Dew corn whiskey and a couple of pieces of cooked bacon as a garnishment. Don't even need lunch! A big ol nap was tucked in there today, too...

    Nice one, I too love a bloody mary made with whiskey and bacon, a nicely wooded tequila is up there for me too.

    Beautiful Saturday back from a bike ride in the country and sipping a "Kentucky Corpse Reviver" (appropriate for my out of shape carcass)

    Equal parts bourbon, Cointreau,and Lillet Blanc and 3/4 part lemon juice shaken and poured into a chilled coup or martini glass(or in my case in a Tervis rocks glass). Garnish with a mint sprig.
