barkeep's Notes

I used Ransom Old Tom gin and it was amazing. It truly bridged the gap between my favorite London Dry and Bols Genever. Credit here has to go to mixologist/author/historian David Wondrich for resurrecting this spirit from the dead. There is no substitute for this. Drinking it was like tasting history and it brought up all sorts of nostalgia. Truly a one of a kind drink.

I had a killer Martinez at Craigie on Main a couple of years ago. I'm a fan of this antique rare cocktail.
