    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    On a bit of a rum/rhum kick this weekend so it looks like variations on the Daiquiri this weekend! Started last night with a classic 10:3:2 ratio using Havana Club Añejo Blanco (somehow seemed appropriate for "Labor" Day), lime and a nice rich (2:1) demarara sugar simple syrup.

    Think I may switch to a youngish rhum agricole today to better balance the sweetness of the rich simple syrup.

    May have to work a Floridita daiquiri in at some point if I can find some white grapefruit juice.

    Uh, oh! This is what I get for going exploring. May have to take a small detour from the daiquiri. Really need that white grapefruit now even if I have to use bottled juice {shudder}.

    Ingredients
    1 1⁄2 oz Smith & Cross rum
    1⁄4 oz Batavia Arrack
    1⁄2 oz White Grapefruit juice
    1⁄4 oz Lime juice
    1⁄2 oz B.G. Reynolds Passion fruit syrup
    1⁄4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo

    Shake, pour un-unstrained into a double rocks glass.

    Later this morning, I plan to make an IBA standard Bloody Mary. Salt, pepper, lemon juice, Worstershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, tomato juice, and vodka. Back to the basics.

    Filled a long standing gap in the classics tonight and made my first ever Rob Roy. Great King Street scotch and Dolin vermouth. Pretty tasty!

    Man I love a good Rob Roy, such a change of pace for the taste buds after drinking a lot of manhattans and other bourbon based cocktails. Ive taken to using Black Bull 12 yr, nice 100 proof blend.

    Old Fashioned using Bittermilk No. 1 Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned mix with Mellow Corn and again with JTS Brown. The latter worked better, mostly because it's less sweet.

    Tonight we're having Rittenhouse Manhattans with Fee Bros. Aztec Chocolate bitters. Very nice.

    Andrew, round up some Campari, if you don't have any, and use those same ingredients in a "Left Hand". One of my favs and the chocolate bitters make the drink.
