You are killing me right now! I love the Negroni but I'm on a Keto diet right now. Bourbon is still allowed but the only cocktail that works on this diet is the Vesper. (Which ani't bad by any means but man how I love a good Negroni).

I will live vicariously through you my bro.

(In my best Connery 007 brogue...). Say, Agent Flahute, I always enjoy a finely crafted Vesper, myself.  Particularly, on a sunny and 67 degree February day.  Of course, shaken not stirred.  What say you and I gather a satchel of the ingredients, pick up Moneypenny and Pussy Galore, and give them a good shagging? How about you let me have Moneypenny this time?  

:D

After a warm up beer, it’s on to a TANSTAAFL2 special, The Trans-Atlantic Giant.  Or, more affectionately known as:

The SmokinmuthahfuckinJoe.  :D

DUDE!!!    You are truly lining life when you, a former BOTY, have a fabulous cocktail named personally after you, particularly if so named by the former BOTY; TANSTAAFL2!

I believe there is a law that states that one Rob Roy must be consumed somewhere in the US every month of the calendar year.  May I go on record that I have covered February for the team...

 

Gary Regan in his cocktail book calls for Peychaud’s Bitters and an addition of a cherry to this cocktail, where my Boston’s goes just Scotch and Sweet Vermouth.  I went with the Regan variant, and it seems to work.

Another TANSTAAFL2 special for me while cooking up some potato soup, and watching OSU-IU College hoops:

The Arbitrary Nature of Time.

Staying in tonight- reading by the fire and sipping a WT101 old fashioned while my GF takes a pre-dinner nap.
