    Had a few Manhattans tonight at a wedding. Makers top shelf tonight, but could have been worse.

    Kentucky Mule on a gorgeous Father's Day afternoon. (OGD BIB/lime juice/Barritt's ginger beer/highball).

    Made myself a batch of black tea infused EC12 and stirred up the Reverend Palmer. Thing was delicious while tending the BBQ.

    Playing around with some gin based cocktail. The aviation and Gary Regan's variant, the Moonlight Cocktail.

    Both with Aviation gin - a great US gin.

    It's a Manhattan start to the weekend. Handy rye/Carpano Antica/orange bitters/Luxardo cherries. I can't top this at my home bar. And I'm having a hard time setting aside any of the Handy for neat sipping. Maybe later

    Experimented with a low-carb whiskey sour mix this evening. It was a good first attempt. Threw 8 packets of Splenda into 1 cup of water, added 1/4 cup lemon juice and 3 Tbsp of lime juice (plus ice, and 2 oz of 1792 RR). Pretty decent, although I think I'll use a bit less water and a bit more lemon juice for the next go. Based on my calculations, it should wind up at around 31 calories and 6 carbs (compared to 90 calories and 23 carbs for the mix I typically get off the shelf). Don't get me wrong - I'm sure in a side by side I would pick the other one, but pretty satisfying none-the-less!

    Red Hook- 2 oz.THH/1oz. Carpano Antica/.75 oz. Luxardo liqueur. Stirred in a rocks glass w a 2" cube. Garnish w Luxardo cherries. I may have a hard time making cocktails without Handy in the future. It's a whole new level of flavor.

    Started off with EWSB04 bloody mary, added some celery bitters for the first time and of course a strip of bacon. The EWSB04 doesn't have enough umph for this IMHO, it's best neat sipping.

    Then I tried it in some old fashions. Better but no cigar. Moved on to some 4RSB old fashions and now were talking baby!
