  1. An Ideal Negroni

    Along the lines of the above: 1 oz gin 1 oz Campari 1/2 oz Punt e Mes 1/2 oz Dolin dry 1/2 oz Zucca

    The female form in the Suffragette photo is ironic.
  3. @FrogPrincesse Midnight Stinger is nice, even though I'm not a huge mint (and therefore Fernet) fan. I'd make that again for sure. Thx.

    Ratios? It's impossible to google for the recipe since "bridal cocktail recipe" returns a zillion crappy wedding drinks. Sounds like a Martinez, no? That's a handsome photo, BTW.
  5. BTW, I use 1 oz each of bitter and sweet peel per 750ml of solvent to make the orange tincture. Not saying that's ideal -- dunno.
  6. Drinks! 2017 (Part 1)

    I'm been enjoying what amounts to a Hemingway G&T: 1/2 oz each Campari, Aperol, Maraschino 3/4 oz lime 1 oz gin 3-ish oz tonic, 1/2 bottle Fever Tree Light Tonic or similar. Adjust lime if using a sweeter tonic. Alas, the juniper of the gin doesn't come through as much as I'd like, but it's a lovely bitter big modest-alcohol drink that's perfect for summer. A motivated consumer might try a high juniper gin -- Juniperio maybe?

    Nice photo, @chefmd. I love the lens effect with the glass bottom of the glass, with the air bubble.

    Was at the fabulous Back Room in Waltham MA (any place with hanging meat is already a win) and had their Last Run, a Last Word variation with Genepy for Green Chartreuse. Great. Making it again tonight for guests.
  9. Wut? I re-read @tanstaafl2's reply. He is helping you determine the actual distillery. He neither contradicted anything you said nor implied that you were spreading false information. I appreciate @tanstaafl2's expertise, enjoy his posts, and usually learn something.
  10. Tepache?

    Tepache sounds delicious. I love cider-gone-hard but it seems just about impossible to get unpasteurized apple cider (US definition -- fresh unfiltered apple juice) anymore. Even the orchards don't/can't sell it. I do remember getting quite a head ache from drinking too much, presumably from undesirable fermentation products.
  11. Or add some juniper berries to the bottle and drink it with dry vermouth or tonic water.
  12. Amer Picon & Torani Amer

    My dry, harsh, high-proof, extra bitter Amer Boudreau makes a better Brooklyn than Bigallet. Dan out.
  13. Massachusetts is very keen on receiving all its liquor tax. No mail order.
  14. Rittenhouse is crazy-expensive near me -- close to $30.
