  1. Part of the problem here is that in order to 'Rectify' spirits, one needs a particular license, right? And if you have that license, you can't sell what you make directly to someone in a drink - You'd need to sell it to a bar who'd then be allowed to mix it into a cocktail. So, silly question: Can a bar have someone (An employee or pseudo-employee, I guess?) get the license, whip up the infusions and then 'Sell' them to the bar? (I use sell loosely here. Presumably precisely at cost). I'm not a lawyer, but if the rectifier's license isn't too hard to get, that could be a temporary solution. At least until the laws get changed to something sensible in 20 or 30 years...
  2. Riff-by-necessity of a drink I found on CocktailDB (http://www.cocktaildb.com/recipe_detail?id=3683) Rum Ricky Variation Variation 1.5 oz Dark Rum .75 oz Benedictine .5 oz Lemon juice Scant .5 oz Hibiscus-Ginger infused Simple Syrup Build in an ice-filled Collins glass and top with soda. Garnish with an orange twist. Turned out better than I expected : D Little cold for this kind of drink (At least in Southern Ontario), but tasty none the less.
  3. This topic got me perusing through CocktailDB, as I really don't make Scotch cocktails very often. I came across a couple I thought were interesting: Alice (http://www.cocktaildb.com/recipe_detail?id=2600) .75 oz Scotch .75 oz Kummel .75 oz Sweet Vermouth Stir and strain into a cocktail glass and Oh! Henry (http://www.cocktaildb.com/recipe_detail?id=4484) 1 oz Scotch 1 oz Benedictine 1 oz Ginger Ale Mix and serve in a cocktail glass I haven't actually tried either yet, but they work ok in my head. That being said, make and consume at your own risk.
  4. Interesting. I'm wondering if the best approach might actually be to get arrested and then fight it out in court as a bad law...I mean, assuming someone could deal with the costs and hassle. In any event - Bleh.
