Help for a Couple of Cocktail Novices (Part 2)

113 posts in this topic

How was that one? I added it to my "drinks to try" list after seeing it in the drinks thread but haven't got to it yet. One of these days I'm going to have to quit adding to that list or start drinking more. It's getting ridiculously long.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Got a nice new Tequila that a Canadian fellow and a couple of his Australian friends have been making in Mexico. Story here.  So made a Maximilian Affair.

Kerry, I think there's something wrong with posting to a thread that has the phrase "cocktail novices" in the title when the post includes the phrase "homemade vermouth."  :wink:

Enjoy the white Barbancourt! I love the fresh lychee note.

Your guess is as good as mine!

A daquiri variation using St. Germaine from the St. Germaine website. But if VPB has a specific meaning (I suppose it must?) then it is a mystery to me as well!
