Dinner is not going well at all, my hands were shaking.  So I made Mississippi punch.  To which I almost added dashi rather than the lemon juice.

 

Just for fun I tried raspberry gum rather than plain sugar.  The raspberry gum did not add much.  I'm not sure the professor would approve, but I think he would have understood.

Our own Chriss "Hassinho" Hassouni's inventive and delicious pop-up drinkery The Green Zone just got glowing coverage in Thrillist and a shout-out in Eater. If you're in DC and like tasty things, go tonight.

My Black and Bitter Heart

My Kahlua is probably not as classy as whatever "craft" coffee liqueurs are out there, but its syrupy sweetness (in the prescribed small doses) works quite well for me in bitter drinks like this (or the somewhat similar Bombardier). This was complex, bittersweet, and tasty.

Thank you both! Tonight was about twice as busy as any previous pop-uppery. Funny how some well-placed mentions online can change things...

Dante's Requiem. Rit for the rye. Possibly need to cut down on the Benedictine. Even going HARD with the Fernet, the Benedictine pulls its way to the top of the pile like fucking Bailey's. A socially acceptable Bailey's, to be sure, but still très passive aggressive. Not the kind of Bailey's that likes to expose itself to unsuspecting members of the public and dance grotesquely.

Hey! I met him recently:

 

Creepy pantless guy in the woods, shaking his ass in "sexy" underwear. Told him to put his pants back on. Ignored me, so I called cops. Walked a woman out of the woods and met the cops. Walked around with cops for a while. Gave up and finished my walk, but when I emerged from the woods, he was in handcuffs. No, not "sexy" handcuffs.

I had more or less the same issue with the inspiration cocktail, the Purgatory (which does not benefit from the addition of Fernet).

 

Oh and I am not sure what to say about Dan's post, other than I feel deeply perturbed and am starting to have horror visions. Need a drink quick, but not this kind obviously.

Since Dan's 'friend' was making a donkey of himself, I propose an Eeyore's Requiem.  Which is a very fine drink I haven't made recently, but should.

Absentmindedly I poured a full ounce of Cointreau into tonight's mai tai.  I compensated.  I might have been better served to dump the whole thing in the sink and start over, as it has taken me over an hour to get the balance close to right.

 

 

Edit:  fortunately La Favorite bottles are not hard to open.

Zombie season. Dictador, which is from the grand land of wherever, in favour of the Dem. What a grand drink.

Nikka Coffey Grain and Benromach 10 at the Passenger, plus a few cocktails. Excellent whiskies.

Indeed! I particularly like the Nikka Coffey Grain. Picked up the Nikka Coffey Malt on my way through Schiphol recently and looking forward to a SBS with the Nikka Coffey Grain.

No day drinking, just some daydreaming while looking at Dandelyan's beautiful cocktail menu (it's the new bar from the White Lyan team, at the Mondrian hotel in London). A lot of cool ideas. The Evil Manhattan and its botanical beer "vermouth" has me particularly intrigued.

There is a nice night/day rich/light decision matrix at the end that's a bit reminiscent of Pouring Ribbons'.

Dammit. I foolishly assumed I'd be one of the first to get a beer "vermouth" on a menu.

Délit de Fuite, created by our very own Plantes Verdes.  Gin (mine), Cynar, Cocchi Americano, Campari, our newly-acquired Orange Cream Citrate and a strip of orange zest, but perhaps not looking its best as I'd already had a couple of slurps before I thought to take the photo:

Yum!  Definite Negroni family resemblance, which is rarely a bad thing.
