    refreshing and savory.  Highlights the vanilla notes in both of the liquors - happily I have both brands on hand.  cut the simple to 1/2 oz, slight over pour of fresh lime juice.  time to make another.  sip this slowly folks!

    User esme 'n' franklin suggests Mezcal with San Pellegrino Pompelmo as a variation called Pigeon.

    One can swap out the blueberries for strawberries too.

    Made with Buffalo Trace / Redbreast 12 / Laphroaig 10 / BT Jerry Thomas bitters. Smooth and full of bourbon barrel flavors. For me, it's better served straight up.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Definitely more of a Negroni Fizz, yeah.

    A true classic.  I keep working with what I have to hit all the right notes.  Tonight's was particularly good...

    • 1 oz. Appleton V/X
    • 1/2 oz. Barbancourt 8 yr
    • 1/2 oz. Neissen Agricole Blanc
    • 1/2 oz. Orange Curacao (Marie Brizzard)
    • (heavy) 3/4 oz. lime juice
    • (light) 1/2 oz. Orgeat (B.G. Reynolds)
    • 1/4 oz float - Lemon Hart 151

    I can't find any aged agricoles near me so I compensate by going half & half with the Barbancourt which is made the same way and the Neissen which is a true agricole, but unaged.

    The other key thing is that Mai Tai's have to be enjoyed outdoors.

    Maybe just semantics but with the soda it seems more of a Negroni Collins.

    Looking forward to trying one!

    Curated this slightly: moved the syrup recipe to the notes section. Is this your drink. or someone else's? Is the rosemary syrup cold process or cooked? Thanks,  Zachary

    I didn't see anything in the sources specifying stirring, but I'd think this is something you'd shake.

    Beautiful and elegant with Luxardo Fernet and Masterton's 10yo Rye. Lavish orange twist instead of lemon, and it works like a splash of Cointreau. A must-try for fernet-lovers.

    I built in a glass tumbler, using Citadelle gin, Q ginger beer in place of the ginger syrup & club soda, with Scrappy's cardamom bitters. Next time, I might work fennel into it for a more vivid Indian experience.

    Wife has never ever liked or even tolerated whiskey over many various attempts.  She actually liked this! Used the DrunkLab recipe above. Thanks much!

    Curated this slightly - moved the long note with the details of the infusion to the notes section. Thanks,  Zachary

    This is fascinating!  The bourbon blends so well with the cassis.  A great discovery, Stew.

    I think this is one of the best drinks I've had in a while.  Remarkable because it perfectly balances the orange flower (for once).  Much better than the Ramos Gin Fizz.  I used pre-made simple syrup to which I added 2 drops and then 2 more in the shaking.  And the basil is also subtle yet apparent.  Also Moody June gin, for the record.  Wow is this good.

    Yep. She would get a kick out of you referring to her that way.

    Don't make this with Kappa pisco. It tastes like soap.

    Name changed from Gin-Cin-Cyn to align better with most sources.
