    Re: What Cocktail Are You Enjoying Spring/Summer 2014

    Beginning the transition from the beer that quenched my yard work induced thirst, to an evening of spirits, with a Boulevardier. 2 parts 4RSB : 1 part Gran Classico Bitter : Smidge of Vya vermouth (honestly, I ain't a fan of sweet vermouth, so I go light on it in cocktails that call for it), and lemon peel. Very nice, but I'm thinkin' a bit more bourbon and a touch less GCB. The Gran Classico is gorgeous, but it packs a lot of flavor that is a little much here, and muted the whiskey too much for me. Back to the lab...Sometimes, to err can bring nice benefits!

    Just got done enjoying a steak and egg lunch, with a delicious Mellow Corn bloody mary. I love Sunday

    Bloody marys always seem special on Sundays.

    Well, you boys talked me in to one! . Dixie Dew Corn Whiskey for mine...and 2 pieces of bacon. Hey Phil, do you use a mix, or make your of BM mix? I've been enjoying Zing Zang for mine, but I do throw some Lea & Perrins, Bay seasoning, and celery bitters in there...and the bacon.

    Hey Joe. More often then not, I use a mix. Usually Mr & Mrs T, bold and spicy or Zing Zang. Both very tasty. I also add some Worcestershire and some Beau Monde seasoning. And of course the bacon, gots to have the bacon!

    I like the idea of the bitters, never thought of that. Next time I'm at TPS, I'll check out what they have

    ***Ok, a quick glance at the TPS website tells me I'm going to pick up some celery bitters, and Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub bitters. . Damn that sounds tasty. Will report back

    Those two bitters would be awesome in a Bloody Mary. I'm gonna pick them up too!

    Double Old Fashioned glass, 3/4 full of ice. Splash of simple syrup, 4 shakes Angostura, 4 shakes Fees Orange bitters, fill glass to 2/3 full with EWBIB, and give it a splash of water and a cherry. Stir for a bit, and enjoy.

    Best regards, Tony
