Sipping Foursquare Premise rum. Can’t find locally but thank goodness the Internet provides
Sipping some Willett Family Estate rye at the moment. A 6 yr old 121.2 proof private barrel pick. Last pour of this bottle. A really nice rye with out the typical pine/ minty notes. A bourbon lovers rye that drinks very well at proof. Glad I have a couple in reserve
Love Willett, excellent choice! Their pot reserve is one of my favorites.
Made Torchlight (Tequila Hot sauce Cocktail) tonight, must admit that it is not the best thing to drink on a very hot day, made us sweat.
Not too different from a corn and oil. Ian is a fun guy and the cocktail is delicious and a nice tribute to Gale who is also a sweet person
Yesterday was an Old Overholt old fashioned on the rocks. We tried to get bourbon later but forgot NC liquor laws mean ABC stores close at 9:00pm.
Found some sample bottles of a few apple brandies from a previous blind tasting. Didn’t bother to search for my reveal notes to see what was what. Enjoyed the first one neat, made an Old Fanshioned with the other one which was delicious
I’ve also used a couple Copper & Kings brandies in an Old Fashioned and enjoyed them very much
Been on an Old Fashioned kick as of late. Have a 5L barrel half full with an Old Grand Dad 114 OF on my kitchen counter at the moment. A tad dangerous when they’re on tap
Last night, the prohibition era cocktail, the “Mary Pickford”. White rum, pineapple juice, grenadine. Big change of pace for me as I am normally a dry martini guy.
How was it? Did you use real pomegranate grenadine?
Paper plane from Sasha Petraske (Milk & Honey). Bourbon, lemon juice, aperol, amaro nonino. So easy to drink!
An Old Fashioned variation, Home on the Range (Sasha Petraske). Angostura, Cocchi, Cointreau, and bourbon.
And so easy to make! Equal parts of all four ingredients.
What’s your bourbon preference for old fashioneds?
Saregama - sorry for the delay. Had to check with DH who does most of the cocktails. He said he used Eagle Rare in the above one, but generally rotates between any one of 15 or so options.
Last evening; a drink i sort of made up a while back to kick up refreshing Americanos, the “Oaxaquen~o”-Americano
Orange & Lime Slices
plus…one shot of Mezcal Blanco
Helps me pretend i’m in the summertime outside !
