What Did You Drink Today (non-wine) #2?

From what I’ve seen, they’re expensive - to acquire and stick!

From the Fall 2023 issue of Whiskey Advocate magazine. I used Bacardi 8 for the aged rum part.

Early Riser

1 1/2 oz rye
1/2 oz aged rum
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1/2 oz grenadine
2 dashes absinthe

Place all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.



I have sampled all manner of cocktail. For me a martini, an old fashioned, a Negroni, an Army and Navy, and a gin fizz will suffice.

If I knew what it was … Google didn’t help :joy::joy::joy:

Congrats! My daugther bought me “No Aperol, no Party” socks in Florence. I want to add the “The Last Spritz” adaptation of “The Last Supper” to my art collection…

An as-yet-unnamed drink a friend invented. Quafftide is a possible name.

  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/3 oz. Licor 43

Shake and strain into a cocktail or coupe glass.


OMG. I’ve thought of many things, but never hot, mulled Manischewitz. There’s a whole lot of sweetness to temper, that’s for sure.

Had a Topo Chico this afternoon
