    This is very good! We used Licor 43 for the vanilla. It's quite a large drink, but still seemed to be gone too soon ...

    Nice, I used a combination of chocolate and orange bitters and I like the subtle interplay 3.5

    didn't really care for it, acidic sweetness from the orange juice didn't pair well with the vermouth and genever for my taste

    Yum yum.

    Done. I guess "slice" is descriptive enough.

    How much orange peel? Could you add it to the ingredient list?



  • Stocking a Better Bar   4 days 8 hours ago

    Yeah, it's especially hard with liqueurs, as it's hard enough to finish a bottle of something you like when you are only adding an ounce at most each time you pour. With whiskey, I usually spend a week or so making old-fashioneds until a bottle is kicked and I can move on to something I like better.

    Very nice Campari sour.

    I was tempted to try a Mescal float. Maybe next time.

  • The Crafty and Elusive Elk   5 days 5 hours ago

    After getting into cocktails about six months ago, and keeping a log of everything I made, I wanted something special for my 100th drink.

    The Crafty and Elusive Elk has an intriguing name and an exotic ingredient that I've never used before. Yesterday, I bought a bottle of Del Maguey Vida mezcal specifically for this (couldn't find Sombra).

    I was not disappointed.

    I'm craving another now.

    A slight recipe tweak developed by Giuseppe Gonzalez of Painkiller (NYC) and that can be currently found on the menu at Milk & Honey NYC (thanks to head barman Theo Lieberman), has a dash more Campari (.75) and much less pineapple juice (.5) -- making rum and Campari the dominant flavours, a more bitter and alcoholic drink (also heavily reliant on the quality of the pineapple juice). It's the best variation I've tasted. This NYT piece explains it.

    Very nice, dry-ish cocktail. A nice alternative to a Red Hook. I did not find 1/4 oz of each liqueur excessive. Lovely.

    made this with CioCiaro in place of the Amer Picon, and it is delicious - anything with CioCiaro is delicious!

    also nice with Peychaud's bitters instead of angosturra

    @bza - I like your article too. One way to control bottle count creep is to make yourself finish up a bottle that you took a chance on and didn't love before you take a chance on some other bottle. I suck at this, however.

  • Stocking a Better Bar   1 week 4 days ago

    I had it made by the same people who made my bar. I would think that any custom cabinetmaker/woodworker could do it for you - just make it a bit more than 2x as deep as your widest bitters bottle.

    Where did you get the tray for the bitters on the bar top? I'd love one exactly like that for our expanding collection. Thanks!

  • Father Tai'm   1 week 5 days ago

    First thing I made on buying a bottle of Frangelico. I like it - the hazelnut and orange is a surprising combination. Will definitely make again.

  • Corpse Reviver #2   1 week 5 days ago

    It's good with Plymouth, even better with Bols Genever.

  • Spring Cleaning   2 weeks 27 min ago

    good catch, yes, its effects were affecting me this morning

  • Spring Cleaning   2 weeks 5 hours ago

    Curated this - changed 45 cl to 45 ml, unless 15 ounces of pisco is appropriate.



  • Heisenberg's Blue Sky   2 weeks 8 hours ago

    Looking forward to trying one (oh, who am I kidding, several) this summer...

  • Wander Back   2 weeks 2 days ago

    I was stunned by how good this was, used Martini and Rossi. Not an intuitive match to me but I'm an amateur.

  • Fernet Me Not   2 weeks 3 days ago

    Thanks. I submitted this on my phone so I was having some issues with the drag down bars.

  • Shaka   2 weeks 4 days ago

    Nice flavor and the Okolehao stands out on the finish. Used fresh limes of the tree and had some lilikoi on the vine for passion fruit juice.
