"Always the right cocktail."
"A very satisfying cocktail with ingredients most people have around the house."
"Tart and tasty."
"Try ordering one of these at any bar, and it will be different from place to place."
"This was a quick one I whipped up on Christmas Day when I was at a relative's house, who had limited liquid resources."
"Add fresh grated nutmeg and nothing could be more perfect. Merry Christmas SMD!"
"It's 4:20 pm on a Wednesday. It's either Happy Hour or I'm just starting really early."
"I saw celery bitters here on SMD, so I got some too. Really adds a nice.touch to the regular Gibson."
"This one's for the ladies..."
This is a very tasty not-Scotch. I've had it a few times.
Sapporo is one of those great chicken or fish beers.
Wow, never heard of this one. Where can you get it? Sounds really interesting. What's the a.b.v.?
That sound absolutely amazing! What flavor. Go Patriots!
I love a good rye. Especially a LOCAL good rye.
I prefer Harp or Smithwick's in my half n halfs.
I like the natural red that the muddled berries give. Easy drink!
I love the Smuttynose OBD!! Still havent had the Angry Orchard yet. Saw it here on SMD a couple times now.
That is a good beer with steak tips.
I must have spaced on that triple sec in addition to what was around the rim. Just bought some nice silver espolon tequila so look for a margarita soon-- will probably put that tequila itself up, it's tasty!
Yes, Nigori, unfiltered sake is that milky -- it's kind of cool and interesting and this one is sort of sweet. It doesn't have that typical sake underbite that can sometimes be sort of varnish-like...
I think a dark el presidente could be interesting, and would look pretty cool. My one question is how do you think dry vermouth would go with a black rum? Would you need to go sweet vermouth, and a really delicate Cointreau wash? That might be tricky, but interesting.
I have a flash, but it really washes out the pics... the dark and back lit photos are bizarre. Also, the flash on the phone in a bar or restaurant takes snapping pics at the table to new levels of rudeness ;). I like the lights on the sake decanter in my sake shot, it came out cool.
MixMaster, I found this brew at The Tavern Downtown, on Allyn St. In Hartford, CT. They've got 20 high end beers on tap, and about 100 in the fridge. The tap system is an imported English tap system with the sprayer to chill the glasses before pouring. They also have a solid pub menu. Not sure if you've got reason to be in H-ford, but if you do, I'd recommend the place (I'm on a contract down there, so I'm pretty well acquainted with the downtwon restaurants).
Sadly I have backfilled razzmatazz into chambord bottles when working for cheapo bar owners. I don't mind spending the extra as its an ingredient I don't use that often.
I haven't been drinking lately. But all that's about to change, my friend.
