    This is a duplicate; ignore :-).

    Then I have failed.

    Overall, I haven't loved Smith & Cross, but this wasn't bad.

  • Reply to: Amulet   by   2 months 1 week ago

    Delicious but nothing like an omelet.

    Quite nice anise notes to a Redhook variant. I might try 1/2 oz dry vermouth for sugar balance next time.

    Angostura Orange bitters work too

    Curated this: rewrote instructions to avoid copyright. Thanks, Zach

    Fancier, funkier Ancient Mariner. Dan, did you use cinnamon syrup or Becherovka?

  • Reply to: Lizard King   by   2 months 1 week ago

    That's a lot of pie spice in one cocktail -- too much for me.

    Now for dueling pedantic curators! Thanks, Zachary

    Dualing curators. I shortened up the instructions to conform to our style guidelines. Our readers don't need detailed SOP instructions.

    Curated this. Added creator and date, rewrote instructions to avoid copyright. Changed the type to "altered" - this is Herbsaint/Regans vs. Absinthe/BT Orange. Thanks,, Zachary

    Curated this slightly - peach schnapps liqueur is redundant. Changed to peach liqueur. Thanks, Zachary

    Tried both ways. May prefer the original version as the modern take is a bit too sweet.

    Enjoyed this one much more than I expected to. I'm generally very wary of orange juice in cocktails, and 1.5 oz sounds like a LOT of OJ here, but the lemon and falernum provide enough oomph to keep it from falling flat. Used B.G. Reynolds' falernum and mandarin oranges because that's what I had on hand.

    The brovo liqueur is sweetened with agave syrup; the eau de vie is fully dry, so no, not entirely. They might have comparable flavor intensity, so the brovo product might work in some of these drinks if the specs are adjusted for sweetness, but experimentation is required. There's also the issue that the liqueur is distilled with GNS (high proof vodka), while Clear Creek distils with their own brandy, which presumably affects flavor and texture.

    Brovo (http://brovospirits.com/products/liqueurs/douglas-fir/) also makes a Douglas Fir liqueur.

    Are these essentially interchangeable?

    Curated to conform to reference, reducing vermouth and falernum from 1 oz to 1/2 oz. Also removed excessive quote from source for copyright reasons. Added attribution details.

    This is fine, but the Averna doesn't add nearly as much to the drink as the vermouth usually does. Its subtler notes get hidden behind the Campari so that mostly it just reinforces the bitterness.

    Made this with Smith & Cross, WT 101 Rye, and Salignac Cognac. Used 1/4 oz regular double simple syrup. Still a mighty fine drink.

  • Reply to: Trafalgar   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

    Really enjoyed this cocktail. I used Apple jack in place of brandy. Cheers

  • Reply to: Confused Limey   by   2 months 3 weeks ago

    I used your recipe but altered it a bit and it turned out really good.  I didn't have grapefruit bitters but used rhubarb bitters instead and added grapefruit juice instead of lime juice. Really good. Thanks.

  • Reply to: Cubed Old Fashioned   by   2 months 4 weeks ago

    This is brilliant - so much flavour (Hennessey, Appleton 12, Rittenhouse).  Maybe a little sweet with the half of simple, but now I'm going to make the Old Fashioned syrup and try the drink in its full glory.

    I liked this quite a bit, the bourbon and ginger are a natural combination. I found it a bit tart as written though, I might pull back on the lemon juice a bit next time.

    Touché.  I have updated my previous error.  Cheers.
