    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    Do you elect not to include the traditional rinse of absinthe in the Corpse Reviver #2 or is that not part of the Kentucky version?

    I find I tend to like them better with Cocchi Americano, which more closely resembles the original Kina Lillet from the prohibition era of this cocktail over the present day Lillet Blanc.

    Equal parts bourbon, Cointreau,and Lillet Blanc and 3/4 part lemon juice shaken and poured into a chilled coup or martini glass(or in my case in a Tervis rocks glass). Garnish with a mint sprig.

    Bruce, no absinthe in the KY version though I have seen the addition of bitters to more closely mimic the Kina Lillet which I gather had a more bitter profile. But the Cocchi is a good call as well.

    I really like the Kina L'Avion D'Or to play the role of the Kina Lillet. Cocchi Americano is really good too

    I keep meaning to check that out. Is it pretty common to find? Or is it a Tower or H&F kind of bottle?

    The 2 small mint plants I threw into the garden last year are producing prodigious amounts of new sprouts that are absolutely gorgeously pungent. Obviously then, it's going into today's Mint Julep. Awesome on a warm late afternoon here, Down South.

    It is not everywhere, but I've seen it at Tower, H&F, and Mac's.

    Up to now I've been a straight bourbon/rye guy but my daughter, who is more in to cocktails, convinced me to start experimenting with Manhattan's. I tried Rittenhouse 100 bib, Baby Saz and OGDBIB. I gotta say I preferred the Rittenhouse over the others due to the added spice.

    Gerry, lots of fantastic Manhattan recipes to be found here, check them out. I, and most of the brethren here will agree, that rye whiskey is the go to hooch. And if you have access to higher proof offerings, such as Willett or Smooth Ambler, give them a try. It will rock your world..

    Enjoying a nice old fashioned made with OGD BiB and peychaud's bitters. Just recently picked up my first bottle of peychaud's after taking many years to finish a bottle of angostura and I'm really liking how the peychaud's works in an old fashioned.

    Had a Negroni while getting the BGE up and running and then had a Paper Airplane with Dinner once it was ready to eat.
