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

    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.

    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
  4. Drinks! 2017 (Part 1)

    never tried those room temperature cocktails. Have to try this one !
  5. does it really cost 30 bucks a bottle in the US ?
  6. my last order I usually have dolin for sweet vermouth but I'd wanted to try the Noilly. I also took Lustau out of curiosity. Amontillado and Manzanilla are a first for me. I'm finally going to try the Joaquin Simo's Flor de Jerez ! For the rye, I always get the rittenhouse when I find it, hope the bulleit won't disappoint me

  10. Uses of Gum Arabic

    @FrogPrincesseI bought it from an aromatherapy shop I guess its viscosity is not that extreme afterall and it is just that I was not used to see something like that it's pretty much as the gif at the end of this article shows https://cocktailgeni.us/2015/04/23/gum-gomme-syrup-the-easy-way/ thanks
  11. Uses of Gum Arabic

    I made my first batch of gum syrup 2-3 weeks ago using Morganthaler's recipe so much darker. Anyway, the color is not really a problem. The texture however is reaaaaaally well... "gummy". I mean, if I have to empty my half a liter bottle (same as yours frogprincess), I guess it would take more than a whole minute to do so. Then, I asked myself if it is supposed to be that thick ?
  12. Aperitivo Americano

    Indeed, I saw the users' comments but not the note. Thanks.
  13. Aperitivo Americano

    I really would like to try this one http://www.kindredcocktails.com/cocktail/campari-swizzle it asks for Chinato. Can I substitute it with something else? Maybe a mix of vermouth and suze?
  14. Neisson 15 or even 21 year old are much more expensive and some vintage single cask can also be pretty costly too
