    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 instructions for the hop syrup and extract to the notes section. Thanks,  Zachary

    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.

    Curated this: Moved syrup recipe to the notes. Rewrote instructions to avoid copyright infringement. Added year. Just FYI, this doesn't seem like it makes four pints of finished drink. Thanks,  Zachary

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

    THE Jessica Gonzalez?

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

  • Reply to: Cin-Cyn   by   2 months 3 days ago

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

    Curated this. Clarified amaro. Removed the 3 cubes of ice in the original. Added lemon peel as garnish. Rewrote instructions to avoid copyright. Thanks,  Zachary

    Doubled down on the fir with St. George Terroir. Tasty.

    I messed up the original post due to mobile issues. The bitters in the cocktail is Fenugreek bitters.

    Hi,

    Which Bitter Truth bitters are you thinking about here? Thanks,  Zachary

  • Reply to: Montresor & Fortunato   by   2 months 1 week ago

    Nice and balanced. I included the elderflower and used fee brothers bitters. 

  • Reply to: Islay Dawn   by   2 months 1 week ago

    Curated from 1/2 to 1/4 oz simple as per reference.

  • Reply to: Bitter Apricot   by   2 months 1 week ago

    A rare cocktail that appeals to both cocktail geeks (me) and people who like sweet things (wife, friends). 

  • Reply to: Cuzco   by   2 months 1 week ago

    Curated this: Merged the Barbary Lights into this drink - the Cuzco erroneously had lime juice instead of the lemon juice at the cited link. Changed lime juice to lemon juice. Thanks,  Zachary

    Agreed with Christina - reducing St Germain to 3/4 oz is an improvement, as is muddling the cherries before shaking. I also prefer it with Tanqueray instead of Plymouth. Very good as written but excellent with those changes!

  • Reply to: Roman Holiday 2   by   2 months 2 weeks ago

    This is nice, if not a bit sweet.  I might cut the simple to 1/4 oz to test it.  

  • Reply to: Venetian   by   2 months 2 weeks ago

    I used Cynar instead of Campari and Lillet Blanc instead of dry vermouth and it was pretty good

  • Reply to: Double Punch   by   2 months 2 weeks ago

    Curated this. Changed instructions to reflect the cited link.  Thanks,  Zachary

    Suggested edit: According to the reference the Instructions should read: Mix with 3 quick shakes; pour over ice in a rocks glass and garnish with grapefruit. The current instructions are to serve up.
