    An Old Crotchety Fashioned to start the weekend. 4RSB for the whiskey element. Tempted to throw a maraschino in there, but will only follow through with the consent of its creator...

    Manhattans made with bookers and an australian vermouth, something quite unique and a nice change of pace, also got me some luxardo cherries which I was amusingly excited about according to my girl

    Wonderful Sunday. Started my morning off with VOB in me coffee and then in my Bloody Mary. Switched up to some KCSB over a cube and ended the night with a few Redemption Manhattans.

    Slept like a baby too.

    With the triple digit Texas heat in full force, I find myself looking more and more for refreshing Bourbon cocktails.
    Last night, I tried my hand at making a Brown Derby for the first time.
    I took the lazy way out and bought a bottle of Simply Grapefruit, as opposed to squeezing my own.
    Used 2 oz of Henry McKenna 10YO (as opposed to the recipe specified 1.5 oz), an ounce of the Grapefruit juice, and half ounce of Honey syrup (50/50 honey & water).
    Ended up having two, as they went down easy. Grapefruit juice is good for you, right?

    Grapefruit juice was always my favorite but a couple years ago a warning label on one of my medications said "Do not drink grapefruit juice while taking this" and it's a daily dose and I miss it.

    Not sure if it is a named drink or not but, something I have been enjoying.

    3 parts Hendricks .75 parts St Germain slightly muddled Cuke and mint leaves throw in a shaker with a couple ice cubes.

    I have enjoyed these Martini form as well as on rocks topped off with club soda. They are clean, refreshing and delicious both ways.

    Popped my 19 dollar bottle of Pierre Ferrand Amber. Started with a Champs-Élysées and now I'm having a Sazerac. It's a different drink with the cognac instead of the rye. I think I like it.

    Grapefruit juice talk got me thinking, and today was a warmish winters day so I made a couple Hemmingway Daiquiri's, this variant I concocted was my favourite:

    2.5oz Rhum JM
    Fresh Lime Juice - 1 lime
    Fresh Grapefruit Juice - 1/2 smallish grapefruit
    Melted/caramelised a small piece (1/2oz) of yellow rock sugar into the shaker with my chefs torch - tongs essential

    Shaken hard with shaved ice and served in a big rocks glass with a float of 75% Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur and 25% Illegal Respasado Mescal, 1/2 lime garnish
