A damn good Sazerac at the Carousel bar in NOLA.

I'll continue with the NOLA theme with a Ramos Gin Fizz:

a "Old Manhatten".

2oz WTRB

1oz Sweet vermouth

1oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao

bitters

drizzle of Luxardo sweet vermouth, with a couple of cherries on the top.

Over crushed ice.

Needle something sweeter today grilling. The higher proof RB stood up well, and the addition of the orange note played well with the rest, like the muddled orange of the old fashioned. A good slow sipper.

Tried a 2:1 Buffalo Trace / Cardamaro stir down with a few dashes of Bitter Truth Aromatic. Easy sipping, rich, and let's the Cardamaro flavors shine.

Tried this recipe:

I might cut back on the lemon juice a tad next time, but this makes an excellent aperitif. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and not too sour. I think I'd like to play around with the shrub format a little more...

My first old-fashioned tonight - I think I'll use something besides THH next time.

4-5 dashes Barrel Aged Forbidden Bitters (Miracle Mile)

1 dash Regan Orange Bitters

2 Luxardo Cherries w/ a little bit of cherry juice

1 large square ice cube

perfect

That's a lot of Cocchi. I'll have to give that a try.

just saw this on Girl and the Goat Facebook page. They call it a Chicago Derby. They soak mint leaves in the bourbon for 11 hours. Looks like they've chosen a good bourbon, too.

Hope to have one soon.
