  1. This is a great whisky indeed. Also, it pairs well with a dark chocolate dessert 😉
  2. well, it seems that I did not use the proper amaro once again (it is Difford's fault this time 😝) Sam Ross's recipe calls for ' Nonino Quintessentia amaro ' which I guess should be less sweet than montenegro
  3. Paper Plane It is supposed to be lemon juice instead of lime but I didn't get some at this moment. The recipe calls for equal parts but I put a little bit more of citrus and it was still too sweet, had to add 2 ice cube in the glass 😅 Also, I took the opportunity to try Montenegro neat and wow that was something ! I definitely wasn't expecting this taste 😁 a mix of a more conventional maro and some chemical soda but it was actually quite good haha
  4. Cherry and apricot, wow Although this ratio seems to give you quite a sweet drink. I think reducing the liqueur a bit would get something more balanced.
  5. Wow that's an audacious recipe, I would have never imagined mixing smith and cross with green chartreuse. And to add ginger to that 😮 I really can't imagine how this would taste. Ok now I have got to buy ginger liqueur 😩
  6. The Martinez is probably my favorite cocktail. I wanted to give it a try a twist with 'rhum agricole' and it was quite tasty. It was too sweet though, I used the 2 parts vermouth and 1 part gin recipe. Got to try it again with equal parts.
  7. I initially wanted to post this one on the cucumber drinks topic - where I saw your Cobble Hill - but got mixed up I was so sure that the recipe called for Averna I noticed after that you used Montenegro instead of Averna An yet, I bought both bottles this summer in Italy so I could have done it right, next time This version was quite tasty though And to be honest, I don't even know how Montenegro actually taste. I have tried averna on the rocks last year and I thought it was pretty good.
  8. Made this a few days ago, à smoky manhattan twist The Meat Hook 1,5 oz of Rittenhouse 100 (I used Bullet) 5/6 oz of Punt e Mes (I used noilly prat) 1/3 oz of Ardbeg 10 (I used Laphroaig 10) 1 bsp of maraschino
  9. Cobble Hill A really refreshing Manhattan twist
  10. funny, martinez for me yesterday night
  11. I had to try it! Twist of the Bijou, an old one that I am fond of, this was definitely not a disappointment, love it!
  12. I think that this one is actually an apricot liqueur even if it has the name brandy in it (25% ABV and it is pretty sweet). The word 'brandy' is specific to the US if I am not wrong.
  13. Finally got to try the famous Flor de Jerez ! I have to say I'm a little dissappointed. It is really good don't get me wrong but I guess I expected it to be 'funkier' Maybe I'll try this with S&C
  14. never tried those room temperature cocktails. Have to try this one !
  15. does it really cost 30 bucks a bottle in the US ?
