    Drinks! 2018

    I was in the (un) fortunate position of noticing I should probably use up the vermouth in my fridge...so made a tasty negroni before bed last night. Decided to go with 1.5 oz gin, and 1 oz of campari/vermouth. Added some grapefruit zest & grapefruit twist to top off over giant ice ball. I enjoy a Negroni before dinner/with appetizers like everyone else - but I also really enjoy one right before bed. Anyone else? https://moneymaaster.wordpress.com/2018/09/05/negroni/
  2. Lately, Diplomatico Exclusiva Rum. However, I've also been using it in an old fashioned as well (rum old fashioned)..and it's been lovely. Pic & ingredients/directions here: https://moneymaaster.wordpress.com/2018/03/17/diplomatico-exlusiva-rum-old-fashioned/

    The recipe I had didn't call for any lemon juice. (It was from "My Bar" cocktail app). Perhaps I'll try it again and add some lemon juice

    First of all - just wanted to say I am extremely jealous of some of the choices you American's get as far as booze goes. Here in Canada - we can only get what our Liquor commission decides to sell - and we pay a hefty premium I made a new drink for my sister "The Pink Lady" https://moneymaaster.wordpress.com/2018/03/03/off-topic-the-pink-lady/ I also really need to get some nice swizzle sticks, and cocktail cherries...haha

    ^^ Looks great! Just curious where did you find those Swizzle Sticks/cocktail picks? I've been looking for something similar for a while now - but can only ever find the bamboo ones, or the tacky plastic colorful ones.

    Hi Everyone, I am new here (and to the cocktail culture). I've always enjoyed having some drinks with friends & family - but I've recently become obsessed with making cocktails at home. Here are a few creations from the last couple of weeks (probably pretty amateur for most here - but have to start somewhere). In order: Boulvardier Whiskey Sour (this was my first attempt at using egg whites in a drink at it turned out great). White Lady
  9. Hey there! Just stumbled across this site today- and it is exactly what I have been looking for. I am especially interested in the Spirits/Cocktails section as this is an area I've recently become obsessed with. I am a 34 year old from Canada with 2 kids. I have a personal finance blog - but lately have added a section to it that includes some of my cocktail concoctions. I am hoping I can learn from a few of the experienced members on the site to help me improve my abilities and hopefully discover some delicious treats along the way. Thanks for having me.
