    Question: What do y'all do with the yolk? I hated to toss it down the disposal.
    My wife always gives me a hard time about using actual egg whites, but I prefer it to creme. I normally just toss the yolk down the disposal. Not sure if there's anything worthwhile that could be done with them.

    Just looked at this again and am not surprised you liked that one! That is a pretty healthy ration of whiskey to simple syrup. More like a whiskey sweet. I tend to use less simple and more lemon juice. And more whiskey!

    Abundah would work nicely, I much prefer drinking it neat to the farclas 105 so the 105 gets the chop for cocktails first.
    And its very boozy which is critical for inducing visions.

    I typically start with a ratio of 2:1:0.5 as shown here and adjust as needed. I don't think I have made a whiskey sour in a while so I would probably stick to that recipe to begin with. If you want less tartness you can adjust the lemon down and the sugar up to .75/.75 but it is a Whiskey "Sour" after all!

    I like the "Improved Whiskey Sour" recipe as well except that I use regular honey syrup and don't add the hot pepper infusion. Honey syrup is basically like simple syrup but uses honey instead of sugar. I will also use brown sugar or especially "Demerara" sugar when I have it. I always try to keep Demerara sugar on hand. It is a Tiki essential!

    Real Demerara sugar from Guyana is a bit hard to find but there is a company called Florida Crystals that makes a sugar using that name that can sometimes be found in area grocery stores. Probably similar to "Sugar in the Raw". Cane syrup is not a bad option either. Both bring a little extra richness and funk to the sugar syrup.

    More Kentucky Mules as I prep the grill. These, for posterity, are: (unmeasured) HH White Label BIB/lime juice/Vernor's Diet Ginger Soda/Fee Bros Barrel Aged Bitters. Stirred w ice in a large Tervis tumbler. I'm a happy Dusty guy!

    Joe, in my book, you were VERY productive.

    Bought a bottle of Pimm's yesterday. Looking forward to trying various ingredients and ratios.

    Also bought a Misto sprayer to streamline my Sazerac absinthe rinse, looking forward to trying it out

    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    After The Man Comes Around last weekend and my recent Aperol variation of the Corpse Defiler I had an itch to try a little combination of the two.

    Started with a Division Bell.

    1 oz Mezcal (Del Maguey Vida)
    3/4 oz Aperol
    3/4 oz Lime Juice
    1/2 oz Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)

    Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

    I didn't have grapefruit so a lime twist had to suffice.

    One thing led to another and before you know it I was Naked and Famous!

    3/4 oz Mezcal (Sombra)
    3/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
    3/4 oz Aperol
    3/4 oz Lime Juice

    Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.

    The lime wedge recommended on Kindred Cocktail seemed a bit much so I elected to again go with a more standard lime twist as garnish.

    At this rate I am going to need more Aperol soon...
