-Red wine (obviously), just not sure which. Thinking about Casillero Del Diablo (cab sav) or Campo Viejo (Rioja).
-Sloe gin.
-Demerara sugar.
-Cinammon (not sure if I'll go with 1 stick or 2)
-Nutmeg
-Bay leaf
-A bit of fresh ground ginger.
-Orange or satsumas.
-Lime or lemon. Going to try both separate and together.
-Star anise.
-Cloves.
-Currents.
-Sliced Almonds.
-Vanilla pod.
-Honey.

That's going to be all my ingredients, just haven't figured out ratios or what to leave out. Might end up adding more to it though.


I think you have forgotten the blood of your enemies.

Sounds good. How about some cardamom pods and fresh sliced ginger?

I did say I might need to add more to it.

I did put ground ginger


Not a massive fan of cardamom. My ex used to make cardamom tea. Stuff was vile lol. I could always try it though.

Cardamom tea sounds vile.

Speaking of tea, I am seeing quite a few cocktails made with various types of tea. As a Yank the thought of drinking tea is somewhere near eating grass and punching myself in the ear but I could be compelled to try one of these.

I like tea. I tend to only drink it at night though. Need coffee to keep my blood caffeine levels equal, but I'm working on replacing my blood with caffeine anyway.

I had an earl gray cocktail years ago. Can't remember EXACTLY what was in it, but I remember the tea, honey, gin and some type of spice. Was quite a basic cocktail really.

You asked me to pay you in booze for keeping tabs of who didn't read my Presidential thread, here's one for the account. I talked about this one earlier in the thread but never made it. My friends wanted an after dinner drink so I made the appropriately named After Dinner Cocktail:.


    1 Part Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
    1 Part Batavia Arrack
    1 Part fresh lime juice

    Shake with ice and then double strain into a coupe glass.

Thanks, I suspect we may get a few more before it drifts into oblivion.

This one was very popular with the ladies. They liked the fruitiness of the drink and it was not overly boozy. It didn't have a name when I made it so we can call it the Mockingbird:
    1 1/4 Ounces Plymouth gin
    1/2 Ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
    3/4 Ounce St. Germain
    1/2 Ounce lemon juice
    1 Ounce pomegranate juice
    1 Lemon wheel for garnish

    Shake all the ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with the lemon wheel.

I think it would make a very good Thanksgiving cocktail.

It's never too early.

Ok, I know we were just talking about tequila via PM but you're gonna have to deal with another rum drink until next week. This one is a take on the Negroni but instead of gin we use Jamaican rum which gives it a nice sweet/spicy note. The Kingston:
    1 Ounce Appleton Estate Signature rum
    1 Ounce Campari
    1 Ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
    2 Dashes orange bitters
    1 Orange peel for garnish

    Mix all the ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into a double rocks glass over one large ice cube and garnish with the orange peel.

That's ironic as I was just discussing Kingston TN with someone via PM.

Fallout shelters and such.

Perhaps not as intended but, I can see myself sitting on top of the mountain watching the ensuing chaos with one of these in my hand.

Or in each hand.

I would recommend the double fisting. The end of the world requires extra hooch.

Ewww?

How on earth did I miss their recipe?

Now I've got to go back and search it up.

Y'know for hard times, end of the world stuff.
