...and Russians like to kiss you on the cheek over and over again...


Better than having a Sicilian do that although you would not have to worry about dealing with the hangover.

Since the weather was hot and humid it called for a drink that contains citrus. Tequila and lime work well together so this drink utlizies that pairing and adds a little sweetness to make a very refreshing cocktail. The Mexican Firing Squad:
    1 1/2 Ounces blanco tequila
    3/4 Ounce lime juice
    1/2 Agave nectar
    1/4 Grenadine
    2 Dashes Angostura bitters
    1 Lime and cherry flag for garnish

    Shake all ingredients with ice until well chilled. Pour into a double rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with flag and serve with a straw.

This may have been covered, but could you explain a bit about bitters? When do you use them and why?

Bitters can be used as a lifting ingredient, to add aromatics to a drink and increase the aroma. A good example is the original Martini recipe which called for orange bitters which gave the cocktail a nice citrus hint with every sip.

Or they can be binding agents that tie several flavors together like in a Sazerac where the Peychaud's bitters help blend the flavors of the rye, absinthe and sugar.

A couple of dashes can be added to just about any cocktail if you want the added complexity but they should certainly be used in the recipes that call for them as it would be like eating a meal that was not properly seasoned. It would still be okay but not great.

Thanks,
I saw them in the grocery and had noticed them listed on some of your concoctions. I noticed they have a rather high content all by themselves, so it peaked my curiosity.

The high alcohol content means only a few dashes are necessary. Try an Old Fashioned without them and after taking a sip add a few dashes of bitters according the recipe, swirl, sniff and taste again. Big difference.

I decided to let some else do the hard work tonight. White Negroni in Cincinnati's Art Deco masterpiece, the Netherlands Hotel:

It's breathtaking.

Not ridiculously unreasonably priced either.

In my extensive travels I found this Hilton property to be the best value for what level of service and ambiance you receive. The rooms are tastefully appointed, the staff is friendly, the location is great and the food and drinks are top notch.

I'll be back out this way in October so open invites are out there for drinks.

Since it was/is going to be hotter than the surface of the sun this weekend we made some Dark and Stormys last night. Use your favorite dark rum and try to get good ginger beer. If you are in a pinch most supermarkets carry Goya brand ginger beer in the ethnic section. Dark and Stormy:
    2 Ounces dark rum
    6 Ounces ginger beer
    2 Wedges of lime

    Fill a highball glass with ice. Add rum and then top with ginger beer. Squeeze one piece of lime into drink and lightly stir. Garnish with other piece of lime. Try not to melt.

Augustus could lock you in his freezer. He might even put you in there all in one piece.

Doubtful.

Is it because there's no room?

Nope.

I just find the whole process therapeutic.
