  1. 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.
  3. Drinks! 2017 (Part 1)

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Or add some juniper berries to the bottle and drink it with dry vermouth or tonic water.
  7. Amer Picon & Torani Amer

    My dry, harsh, high-proof, extra bitter Amer Boudreau makes a better Brooklyn than Bigallet. Dan out.
  8. Massachusetts is very keen on receiving all its liquor tax. No mail order.
  9. Rittenhouse is crazy-expensive near me -- close to $30.
  10. @Craig E Sounds like you need to try The Dagger with similar ingredients but less evil and a touch of lemon. Now I wish I had a bottle to play with.
  11. Cocktail Parodies

    The Benny Hill clip was very funny and clever, and Chaplin's shaking is just pure joy to watch. Thanks for sharing!
  12. Amer Picon & Torani Amer

    Brilliant. Sort of a cross with Creole Shrubb!
  13. The Brooklyn Cocktail

    The Brooklyn with homemade Amer Broudan is a house favorite. My only modifications to Boudreau's recipe are to use half regular and half bitter orange peel in the tincture and to adjust with alcohol to 40 ABV. It is pretty rough when first made. A year in the bottle makes a world of difference, but I've been impatient. I really need to make a double batch to get ahead of the curve.
  14. It is traditionally drunk cold? I've always had it neat. Just about the most awkward bottle for the freezer -- maybe after Chambord and Galliano.
