    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.

    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

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

  • Reply to: Islay Dawn   by   11 months 1 week ago

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

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

    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!

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

  • Reply to: Venetian   by   11 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   11 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.

    Deliciously bitter. My wife won't stop taking sips.

    There are a few different ratios used for this cocktail, but I believe the Savoy calls for 2 dashes (1/8 oz or so) each on the maraschino and lemon juice, not 3/4 oz.

  • Reply to: After Coffee   by   11 months 3 weeks ago

    Really nice.

  • Reply to: Ragtime   by   11 months 3 weeks ago

    It is an odd instruction.  Tried the drink last night with a mist of absinthe in the serving glass and I still think it got lost.  Not a bad drink overall, through.

  • Reply to: Ragtime   by   11 months 3 weeks ago

    I suppose it depends on what your definition of a drop is - I can't see how a drop of anything would coat the inside of a mixing glass (or be noticeable through an ounce of spirit and an ounce of amaro). From what I can tell, 6 drops = 1 dash, though a dash isn't a very specific sort of measurement.  Thanks,  Zachary

  • Reply to: Ragtime   by   11 months 3 weeks ago

    Looks to me like the referenced recipe calls for one *drop*, rather than one dash, of absinthe, to rinse the mixing glass.

    That's the alternative given to misting the mixing glass with absinthe. 

    (As an aside, I don't quite get the point of doing such a rinse on the mixing vessel.)

    Really? The combination sounds interesting, but I can't imagine wanting more than 1/2 oz blackberry juice.

    Curated this. Removed note and rewrote instructions to avoid copyright issues. Clarified instructions to match our guidelines to the cited link. Thanks,  Zachary
