    Glad you liked it.

    Well this was just fantastic. I made i with bourbon instead of rye, because that's what my guest prefers, but I can see how the spice of the rye would elevate it further.

    A very nice cocktail, sophisticated-tasting...and a great way to get soused quickly!

    Kyle,

    What style of Madeira do you prefer here? I'd guess the bitters are Scrappy's?

    Thanks,

    Zachary

    Curated this slightly - changed flavored vodka, Smirnoff to vodka, Smirnoff - generally, if you're doing the flavoring, it's better to put that in the notes field. Removed fresh squeezed from lemon juice - we assume you're using fresh stuff.

    Oh, and as the proud owner of Scrappy's Cardamom, it's weapons grade stuff. 6 drops is going to blow out your drink.

    Thanks,

    Zachary

    Rafa,

    Probably not - you need the elderflower underpinning of the Dolin. It certainly is interesting, though. My wife seemed to think it tasted like grape Fun-Dip. To me, it's almost like drinking a really good Muscadet - where it's almost neutral, but shimmers around the edges with flavor - only the flavors here are like that Japanese gummy Muscat candy.

    Thanks,

    Zach

    Thank you for naming a drink for a Yo La Tengo reference other than Autumn Sweater, which bartenders seem to love. This looks interesting—I wonder whether it'll work with Noilly Prat.

    When the recipe was submitted, the program would not accept blood orange syrup as an ingredient. It has now been corrected.

  • Ides of March   23 weeks 14 hours ago

    Is the recipe correct?? shouldn't it be 3/4 ox blood orange syrup....rather than Juice?

  • Summer Hemingway   23 weeks 1 day ago

    Excellent. Surprisingly balanced. I used white grapefruit.

  • Building a Better Bar   23 weeks 2 days ago

    I use a lightly modified wine rack with good shelving. Surprisingly, it's spacious enough to hold most of my booze if I get creative about it, though I still keep a spare bottle or two (usually Scotch) on our adjacent desk to distract my girlfriend when she's supposed to be reading medical books. The rig's a bit overburdened-looking though and I still have nightmares about the whole thing collapsing.

  • Building a Better Bar   23 weeks 2 days ago

    You know, I'd love to see what solution people have come up with for their bars. Dan, could we set up a page for people to link their pictures if enough people want to do it?

    I just wanted this thing built right the first time. The bad thing is it's already almost too full ;)

    Thanks,

    Zachary

    that's a gorgeous piece. i've repurposed two ethan allen hutches stacked atop chests of drawers for mine. i love it, but i fell victim to only planning for what i had, not what i'd end up having--thanks for the well thought out ideas and suggestions

  • The Search for Delicious   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Amazing.

  • Scotch Lodge   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Looks like Imbibe corrected their version as well.

  • Scotch Lodge   23 weeks 4 days ago

    Moderated to correct Scotch quantity as per e-mail from Tommy Klus.

    Do you stutter when you say "Pedro"?

  • My Idea of Fun   23 weeks 5 days ago

    So good. This combination of rums is phenomenal.

  • Swipe   23 weeks 5 days ago

    Great drink, love what those bitters add!

  • Egg Nug   23 weeks 6 days ago

    fair enough.

  • Egg Nug   23 weeks 6 days ago

    I've always found both Branca products to have a definite pot(still?) funk.

    That said:

    Jamaican rum, Smith & Cross (marijuana-infused; primo only—no stems, no seeds; Colorado and Washington states only)

    Garnish with grated nug.

  • Egg Nug   23 weeks 6 days ago

    You forgot the marijuana.

  • No. 67   24 weeks 3 hours ago

    Curated this slightly - changed Aged Citrus Bitters, 5 by 5 to Bitters, 5 by 5 Aged Citrus, just to clean up the ingredient pile.

    Thanks,
