I'm thinking of Gimlets personally.


I actually make a pretty decent one but it requires me preparing my own lime cordial because I don't like the bottled stuff.

Hah. If I was at that drink throwing scene I would probably go over and ring the guy's suit out into a martini glass.

Okay. Gus, I love you - but you should be more discerning about who you let in the door.
I know you think DB is a hoot - but, honey, no way I can stay in the same room with him without wanting to jab a pen in his eye.

Have fun. I and my lily-livered bleeding heart are leaving.

I've always used Roses, is there anything better?

Not unless you make it yourself. If you do it keeps for awhile so it may be worth it for the home cocktail maker.

I can give a recipe if you are interested for homemade lime cordial.

I found a couple videos that fit in here. Enjoy!

I know, I know, that's alcohol abuse.

Now, this little gadget is supposed to tell you the alcohol content of your cocktail.

Good thing I'm not working for tips.



Good thing I'm not still waiting on that drink.

Ordering my drink from the Shriners bar.

Pffft

I just can't believe I missed a drink throwing bar fight.

I would have picked up Lysergic and thrown him onto the card table so the cowboys start throwing punches and make it an all in brawl .

Augustus, would have come in to break it all up, Patrick Swayze Roadhouse style.

Glassware makes the drink - things were so much prettier once upon a time.

I'd do it again, too. But I guess I'm lucky I got away with it just that once. Twice.

Sorry, everyone.
I'm a redhead. Ginger. Spitfire.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

The following drink is a take on the Bellini which is typically made with Prosecco and some type of fruit puree. The addition of St. Germain adds an extra layer of flavor which compliment the pear puree in this drink.

Zazz's Impearment:
    4 Ounces Prosecco
    2 Ounces pear puree (I prefer Goya brand)
    1 Ounce St. Germain

    Place 4 ice cubes in a large wine glass. Add St. Germain and puree. Slowly top with Prosecco. Stir lightly and serve.

The other drink we made last night is a variation on the Negroni which again shows its versatility. The 1:1:1 ratio is the same and shows the flexibility of the cocktail by allowing you to swap in modifiers of your choice. By replacing the Campari with Cynar you get a somewhat sweeter drink. Cynar is an Italian liqueur made with artichokes and other botanicals. It may sound unappealing but it actually has a very pleasant flavor and is popular in a good amount of aperitivos.

The name, Cin Cyn, is a take on the Italian casual toast of 'cin cin' which is supposed to be the sound two glass make when they clink.

Cin Cyn:
    1 Ounce London dry gin
    1 Ounce Cynar
    1 Ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
    1 Orange wedge

    Stir the first three ingredients until well chilled. Strain into a Nick and Nora glass and garnish with the orange.

I actually have a pre-Prohibition cocktail glass set that originally belonged to my great grandmother on my father's side. I had no idea, until I started getting into cocktails more seriously, what all the odd shaped glasses were for. It was kind of a neat 'ah hah' moment when I figured it out and also kind of cool that they still get use 100 years later.

That sounds delicious!
It's a Bloody Mary morning, for sure!
Can you whip me one up?
STAT!

You're right. It is alcohol abuse.

For wine glasses I recommend Riedel's Vinum line. They are not overly expensive and there are enough styles to cover all the major types of wine.
