The next three recipes are all courtesy of Death and Co.

Since it was 70* here yesterday and felt like spring and we were going to sit on the porch before heading out for dinner I decided everyone was getting citrus in their drinks. I wanted to keep the theme similar so I broke out my Death and Co. cocktail book and found three recipes with grapefruit in them.

The first is Gypsy Eyes which is slightly bitter and somewhat herbaceous:
    Green Chartreuse
    1 1/2 ounces London Dry gin
    1/2 ounce Aperol
    1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
    1/2 ounce lime juice
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    1/2 grapefruit wheel for garnish

    Rinse a coupe with Green Chartreuse and discard extra. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into the coupe and garnish with grapefruit.

Next up is a variation on and Old Fashioned which is going to be fruity and refreshing. The Elder Fashioned:
    2 ounces Plymouth gin
    1/2 ounce St. Germain
    2 dashes orange bitters
    1 grapefruit twist for garnish

    Mix the first three ingredients over ice until well chilled. Strain into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube. Express the garnish over the drink and then drop in.

Last up uses an unusual ingredient from Italy which is starting to see a resurgence in cocktails after being used in dated concoctions like the Harvey Wallbanger, Galliano l'Autentico. It will add a nice herbal/vanilla backbone to any drink. The Mainland:
    2 ounce London Dry gin
    1/2 ounce Galliano
    1/4 teaspoon simple syrup
    2 dashed orange bitters
    2 grapefruit twists

    Express the twists over a chilled coupe glass and then place them in a mixing glass with ice. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well chilled. Strain into the coupe.

All three sound delish!
I think I would start with Gypsy Eyes


At this point, though I think I'm ready for a hot toddy.

Thanks Augustus for the recipes and beautiful photos!

Bubonic Plague?

No problem. If the weather stays warm I might start doing some unusual drinks you don't normally see like flips, fizzes and swizzles.

Bubonic Plague?

Are you insinuating that I've laid with dogs and acquired fleas?!

I wish it were Bubonic, that would mean I've only got 6 more days to suffer and then it would all be over.

It was either that or Swine Flu, I heard about your kinky predilections.

It did, but now it's back. That bottle I had in the photo must be from the 70's when my parents bought it.

But still a fox.

Not the actual animal, more like a hot chick.

Here's a couple more from Death and Co.

The first one is always a big hit with the girls. It's fruity, floral and pink. What's not to like? The Bella Luna:
    2 ounces Plymouth gin
    3/4 ounce St. Germain
    1/2 ounce Crème Yvette
    3/4 ounce lemon juice
    1 teaspoon simple syrup

    Shake all ingredients over ice until very cold. Strain into a port glass. No garnish.

The next one is a take on the Sazerac but instead of rye or bourbon we are going to use a very earthy rum. It adds a nice undercurrent of terroir that takes you to the Caribbean. The Creole Saz:
    1 1/2 ounces Appleton Estate Signature rum
    1/2 ounce Pierre Ferrand congac
    Absinthe
    1 teaspoon demerara syrup
    4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
    1 dash Angostura bitters
    1 lemon twist

    Rinse a chilled rocks glass with Absinthe and discard. Stir the remaining ingredients over ice until well chilled and then strain into the rocks glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.

Thank you. I think.

I think that much alcohol in one drink would put me in a coma.
I'm such a candy-ass.

It really isn't that bad. You sip it. You feel good. Things happen.

Good times.

I love cocktails. I have many bottles, jars and glasses on any taste so every cocktail looks unique. My favorite cocktail is Old Fashioned: American whiskey, bitters and sugar. There are a lot of variations on this drink. It's best when kept simple and focused on the whiskey. Also I like Bobby Burns:
Scotch
Sweet vermouth
Benedictine
Lemon twist
