Does this mean I will get to come up out of the basement more often?

The Japanese are known for the longevity. One thing they consume is green tea. So I thought, let's make a cocktail that will let you live forever. This combines matcha powder, which is powdered green tea leaves, with rye in what is basically a whiskey/amaretto sour. The Samurye:
    1 3/4 ounces Rittenhouse rye
    1/2 ounce Disaronno amaretto
    3/4 ounce lemon juice
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    1/8 teaspoon matcha powder
    1 cocktail cherry for garnish

    Shake all the ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube and garnish with the cherry.

You would like this one since it's not too boozy in flavor, even though it has a decent amount of alcohol to make other people more interesting. Credit to D&Co. Gypsy Eyes:
    1 1/2 ounce London Dry gin
    1/2 ounce Aperol
    1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
    1/2 ounce lime juice
    1/4 ounce simple syrup
    Green Chartreuse
    Grapefruit twist



    Rinse a coupe with the Chartreuse and discard. Chill the coupe. Shake all the ingredients with ice until chilled and then double strain into the coupe. Garnish with the twist.

So you're trying to encourage longevity with Mockingbird...yet feel that I need other people to be "more interesting"??
rofl

It looks good, likely tastes good too.

If it also makes other people less stupid and gives them a sense of humour?
I will drink it on a regular basis. (thank you)

Here's a classic pre-Prohibition cocktail inspired by yellow journalism and America's very first false flag for all you conspiracy nuts. Remember the Maine:
    2 ounces rye
    3/4 ounces Carpano Antica vermouth
    1/2 ounce cherry Heering
    Absinthe
    Cocktail cherry or lemon twist for garnish

    Rinse a coupe with absinthe, discard excess and then chill the coupe. Mix the first three ingredients over ice until well chilled and then strain into the coupe. Garnish with cherry or twist. To hell with Spain.

Interesting drink!
That matcha powder is quite the stuff, look what I found
matchasource.com...
I'm thinking of getting some cafe grade and adding it to all sorts of stuff.
It's be good for the kiddos also, wonder how it would blend on their take out and pizzas?


BTW, there's no way I wanna live forever...just put strychnine in mine please LOL

*snickers* (adds booze to shopping list)

I thought I once read that there was a way of drinking Absinthe that included pouring it on a sugar cube and then lighting it on fire...? Is that true, or am I thinking of something else?

Just get a length of rubber tubing and a funnel if they object to the flavor. See how long they liked pureed pizza.

No, that is a 'traditional' preparation, minus lighting it on fire. I have an actual absinthe fountain that you fill with ice water and drip it on the sugar cube into a glass of absinthe. I was going to do that one soon. Good history lesson from that one too.

There are other drinks where you do light the cube on fire to get a nice, caramel undertone to the drink, I can do one of those too.

Hey Thelma, fancy seeing you here!


My daughter bought me some matcha powder and I put it in fruit smoothies. It didn't taste great but I persevered because she said it was good for me.

Oh, I don't want to live forever either. That's why I'm considering taking up drinking now.

Well, good morning Ms Louise!

I think alcohol is definitely the way to go.

If ya know what I mean. At the rate I'm going we shall soon see.

I'm actually envious of people who can drink and get to their happy place, lol.
My experiences have never been positive and I don't like feeling out of control.
It would be a way to get out of being everyone's designated driver though!

Aug...show us your absinthe fountain sometime! (I don't think I've ever said that before!)

Yes Augustus show us!

Don't be envious my friend, a high tolerance for alcohol (like mine) likely comes from a long line of alcoholics and it just makes you a more expensive date!

LMAO
I don't prefer to be around drinkers if I'm teetotalling (there's a word for you!) so folks needing a driver are on their own, I will provide cab fare though.

Very cool indeed!

As a teetotaller, I would have likely mistaken it for a gumball machine.

May I ask why there is such a thing as an Absinthe fountain? Does it have to do with how it is dispensed?

It is the traditional way to dispense absinthe. I may do that one next week so you can learn about its history.

Holy wow wow!
Look @ that home bar!
*waves at the Turkey*
One day when you are away, I'm going to sneak upstairs and move all of the bottles around.
Mwuahahaha!

I would be interested in that actually.

Your bar looks so professional, I'm sure you guys are great hosts.
Around here socializing tends to be beer in somebody's garage.
(you know they like you if they order a pizza, hehe...)
