    Lightbulb Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    I made a very strange cocktail last night, and it was surprisingly good. I had watched The Big Lebowski twice in recent days, and had a hankering for a White Russian. But I do not have Kahlua. So, I made the same thing with triple sec. I can't think of a cute name for it, it just is what it is.

    1 oz Tito's vodka
    1 oz triple sec (I think it is de Kuyper's)
    1 oz half and half

    That does sound very strange!
    Love that movie, it had me drinking white russians for a good while first time I watched it.

    Enjoying an Old Fashioned here, myself. Similarly prepared as yours E (Muddled Sugar in Raw/Angostura bitters/wheel of orange), but with Old Ezra 7/101 for the whiskey. My highlight is that I finally get to make this one with real Luxardo cherries...instead of...uh...Publix brand...Thank You to Bruce (SB's own Cocktail Guru) for helping to keep me from continuing to embarrass myself in this thread.

    funny,Joe but until I tasted the real McCoy I thought it was kind of snobby. Cherries are cherries right? Well no the Luxardos are well worth the splurge.

    Man luxardo cherries are so good they should be illegal, I feel like homer simpson every time I make a cocktail, one for you (glass) one for me (mouth).

    Smashed a shit ton of cocktails last night, had a mate come round and we grilled up a storm and messed around trying to invent new drinks.
    one of my favourites was what ended up being called a Thai Daquiri.

    Chiffonade a kaffir lime leaf and scrape a vanilla pod, place into a small saucepan with half a can of coconut cream with a good lump of palm sugar and a small sprinkling of dried chilli - simmer lightly for a couple minutes (apart from infusing i find simmering the cream removes the canned taste)

    In a blender put 11/2 bannanas, 3oz of white rum and 2oz of dark rum, I used Rhum JM and Appleton 12, chuck in a bunch of ice (not too much, you want creamy, not icy) and add the coconut cream infusion (kaffir and chilli aswell)

    Blend untill creamy and frothy. Serve in a coupe. I garnished with a banana chip sprinkled with grated dark chocolate and blow torched. I sprinkled a touch more chocolate on top of the drink.

    Serves 2

    A tanstaafl2 Left Hand followed by a Fourth Regiment:

    1 ounce rye (I used High West Rendezvous)
    1 ounce sweet vermouth (I used Carpano Antica)
    1 dash orange bitters
    1 dash Angostura bitters
    1 dash celery bitters (I used Fee Bros. version)


    Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice. Stir well. Strain into a coupe or lowball. Serve up and garnish with lemon peel.

    Note:that's the base recipe, I bumped the rye up to 1.5 oz.
