Having just hiked home from work in the tail end of a thunderstorm...pausing only for a shower and some peanuts:
1 1/2 oz W&N overproof
1 1/2 oz Neisson Blanc
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz orgeat
This I was not as wild about as the similar mai tai made with La Favorite in place of Neisson Blanc above. Nice, mind you, and some subtle dunder of the W&N now makes it through. But the orange from the Cointreau is out of balance. And I don't get hit in the face with the same La Favorite funk.
I measured as accurately as I could, and both recipes have the same amount of alcohol, so that is not a factor. However this time I confess I used a green straw rather than a blue.
