    New York Serious Cocktail Bars

    here's my prediction (if it isn't happening already): the same way some people have started "supper clubs" of private, restaurant-like spaces in people's homes...we will soon have "cocktail clubs". that solves all your problems. you can control the list, meet interesting like-minded people, not have to worry about someone ordering vodka, etc etc. No one expects anything except what they are served at these clubs

    Woodstock inpired cocktails

    There is a product on the market called Jeremiah Weed. Mix it with some of that Bong Vodka that is out there and you should have a smokin' good time

    i will put in an extremely self-interested plug for Tequila Don Julio...they make a fine 100% blue agave blanco

    Will Jiggers Kill the Bar Star?

    someone call carlo petrini...this conversation sounds familiar one other snag on free-pouring vs jiggering: the guala cap. you know, that piece of plastic in some imported spirits/liqueurs. screws my pour up every time...

    Averna Cocktail Competition

    made this tonight. moderately happy with it. Gone a-rye: 2 rye (i used rittenhouse) 1 pimm's #1 cup 1/2 averna 2 dashes regans orange build, cook, strain up. flamed orange peel the rye is definitely the backbone of this drink but the orange and the averna squabble nicely for second place edited: forgot flamed orange

    The Punch Topic

    don't know if this is helpful, but my first thought was "habanero". could do a nice margarita with a slight habanero kick...i prefer a 2-1-1 with don julio reposado and agave nectar to taste.
  12. i think the analogy of human milk: cow milk is as revolting as human flesh: cow flesh. i would eat the milk or flesh of a cow because they are animals. i wouldn't eat the milk or flesh of a human because they are, well, humans. i know, i know...humans are animals too. but one of the animals i procreate with and the other i use as a foodsource. end of story for me! edited to note that i am completely pro-breast feeding for age-appropriate humans (ie babies)
